What do origami birds, horses, Quidditch and robots have in common?
They’re all featured as one of the school’s many clubs. Hundreds of students crammed into the gym last Wednesday for the annual Club Fair.
The school’s thirty clubs gathered around in a semicircle, answering questions and welcoming any new possible recruits. From National Honor Society to Hogwarts United to Art Club, the school is home to a variety of clubs to fit any student. However, most students don’t actually know how many clubs our school really has. The Club Fair is one place for the students of Oregon City High School to find their niche.
Erin Swalwell, an OCHS student looking to find a club, said, “Club Fair showed me that there are a lot more clubs than I thought there were.”
Club fair is also a way for students to advertise their clubs. Some clubs, such as Origami Club, proudly displayed the work they’ve done.
Other clubs featured posters to encourage potential recruits.
Sydney Mcquown, a member of the Oregon City Equestrian Team, said, “The Club Fair gave the Equestrian Team an opportunity to expand and gain more members for the upcoming season.”
For the students willing to jam-pack into the gym like sardines, the Club Fair gave them a unique opportunity to explore potential extracurricular activities. For pre-existing clubs, the Fair gave them the ability to recruit new members.
