The Student Involvement Fair was held today behind the Kopp Student Center as part of the ongoing Welcome Week events and I went and checked it out. The fair consisted of a wide variety of student clubs and organizations, with representatives displaying information and answering questions. Among the many great clubs that I saw at the fair were the Boxing Club, Math Club, Student Senate, and even a Pokémon Club.
I stopped at the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society table and spoke with Kiah and Fatima about why I should join. They explained that PTK has events and activities that are great for meeting and networking with other honor students. They also mentioned that members have access to scholarships, and that being in PTK can help strengthen transfer applications.
I also spoke with Elizabeth Klages about the Politics and Law Club. This club is new this semester, but by the time I got there the sign-up sheet was almost full with interested students. The club aims to give all students the opportunity to discuss domestic issues and policy, foreign affairs, and other political topics. It is also worth mentioning that Normandale is hosting the Arrowhead Model United Nations Conference later this year.
Normandale has a wide variety of clubs to join. As a second year student I strongly encourage students to join a club or organization. It's a great way to meet others with similar interests, build relationships, and really immerse yourself in the college experience and take in everything it has to offer.
