The Campus Activity Board hosted a student involvement fair September fifth on the Quad to promote AACC’s clubs and programs.

Tables and booths were set out from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. that offered club information, prizes and food.

Ren Bishop, a second-year psychology student and editor of AACC’s literary magazine, Amaranth, gave out copies of last year’s issue.

“[Amaranth receives] admissions from students all semester and compose it at the end of the year into a journal,” Bishop said.

Bishop said she likes that any student, regardless of major, can submit work to Amaranth.

The club’s first event is a open mic styled coffee house, which takes place on September 19 from 7 to 9 p.m in the Humanities theater.

According to Bishop, students can sing, dance and read poetry.

Steven Lu, a first-year history student who attended the event said, “There was something here for everyone.”

AACC’s Drone Club, a new club that started this year, displayed over a dozen drones on their table.

“Our goal is to show how science and technology work together and bring the drone world to AACC,” second-year computer science student and club treasurer Nathaniel Disney said.

David Stemmle, a second-year film student said he wasn’t aware of how many clubs were on campus.

“I think it’s good they exist though because they get students involved on campus,” he said.

Stemmle suggested clubs be more prominent on campus with advertising and events.
