The College will be holding the annual Student Activities Fair in the College Center on Monday, Jan. 30 at 11 a.m. Are you interested in being a part of the Middlesex County College community? Are you longing to be a part of a group of people that share the same interest as you? Student Activities will be hosting the annual Student Activities Fair on Jan. 30 in cafeterias B and C of the College Center. Most of the clubs at the College will be showcased.

Mary Tutalo, the Student Life Coordinator at the College said that this event will allow interested student to “stop by, walk around, [and] talk to all the clubs. [The clubs] will be able to give you a little information about the events they have coming up and what kind of programs they run during the year.”

Circle K is one such club that will be participating in the social gathering. Circle K is an international leadership program sponsored by Kiwanis International to promote service, leadership and fellowship. The club is run by president Maitri Patel and has been going on for about a semester at the College. The club has participated in many community service events such as volunteering in food drives and buying Secret Santa gifts for young children in hospitals during the holiday.

The Gay Straight Alliance Club will also be participating at the Student Activities Fair. The club is run by Bridget Quinones who educates new members about the different genders, sexualities, and many other LGBTQ+ related topics. The clubs’ purpose is to break stereotypes, educate others, and to spread awareness about the community. The club is very accepting and will make any member feel comfortable.

Quo Vadis will also be a part of the Student Activities Fair, seeking student writers and photographers who are interested in media and news. It’s a hard working club that students must be dedicated to but the work and effort pays off when students see their name in the College’s paper. The club is looking for students who have a passion for writing or photography and are looking to find a career in reporting and media. Other opportunities for students besides writing and photography include layout, contributing to the Quo Vadis webpage, drawing and illustrations, and so much more. Students who are not interested in the newspaper field, but still want to be a part of media can also look into the Blue Colt Radio Station, where members can work in a real, working radio studio and spread Middlesex County College news.

The American Sign Language Club introduces students and the Middlesex County College community to American Sign Language and Deaf culture run by President Margaux Gray-Afanasyev. The club’s goals are to provide opportunities to experience the language. The club sponsors Deaf film presentations, discussions, participation in Deaf cultural events and an opportunity to practice ASL. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Club seeks to enrich the College community’s knowledge in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in order to create the thinkers, innovators and builders of a better tomorrow. The STEM Club also seeks to do this through peer to peer lectures and STEM related projects which are aimed to develop the scientific and mathematical faculties of the mind and inspire its curiosities. Members of the club go on science related trips such as a visit to the Liberty Science Center and adventuring to caverns and ocean areas. The club is run by President Meenu Jain.

Similar to the Fall 2016 Student Activities Fair, the event will “have some free food, [like] chips and pretzels. And we will have music there as well. The Music Club will be there and the Production Club.” noted Mrs. Tutalo. It’s an exciting social occasion that gets students involved and offers them the opportunity to meet new people. Not all clubs may be at the Student Activities Fair but students can contact the clubs through their Campus Cruiser pages under Campus Life. Come down to the College Center on Jan. 30 to meet the clubs of Middlesex County College and be a part of the college community even more!
