AACC’s Design Club members elected four officers on Thursday.

Among those elected into a position was third-year web and graphic design student Sara Strutz, who is the treasurer.

“I’ve always wanted to join an art club,” Strutz said.

Associate Professor Erik Dunham, a co-adviser for the club, said they look to inform design students and connect them to professionals.

“The purpose of the club is to provide opportunities for design students to work together, to learn from each other [and] … learn from professionals who are actually practicing design in the Baltimore and D.C. area,” Dunham said.

Dunham added the club is a great opportunity for design students to meet, socialize and go on field trips.

Hannah Kuhnert, a third-year web and graphic design student, said she enjoyed the meeting.

“I thought it was really great. I had never actually been to a club meeting ever and … I got a good feel already,” Kuhnert said.

Kuhnert added that she looked for growth in club membership.

“Come to design club,” Kuhnert said.
