Club Re-Rush: Reintroducing Opportunities

The second semester is a busy time for most students, with the CAASPP and AP exams coming up, not to mention senior projects. A good way to relieve some of that stress is for students to start getting involved in clubs with their peers who share similar interests.

With there being fifty-five clubs this school year, there are many opportunities for students to get involved and participate in events that pertain to their passions while making new friends along the way. However, since there is such a vast amount of choices, most clubs either got overlooked or forgotten about after the official Club Rush in September.

In an attempt to jolt some life back into the clubs, ASB Advisor Mrs. Narine Tatevosian and ASB Director of Clubs senior Hailey Wong decided to host a Club “Re-Rush.” “It’s been brought to our attention in ASB that many clubs have very few participants, so we just wanted to have an opportunity to re-expose students to the clubs that exist. When we only have one Club Rush at the beginning of the year, people are still trying to figure out their classes and what they’re doing, especially the freshmen and sophomores who are new to high school, so we just wanted to re-introduce them to clubs and remind them that it’s never too late to join and get to know some new people,” ASB Director Mrs. Tatevosian said.

Fifteen clubs signed up for a Club Re-Rush table, including Rocketry Club, Red Cross Club, Mentees to Mentors, Beauty Club, Make-A-Wish Club, and many others. The rest of the clubs had made posters for their clubs that ASB had put on the walls of the amphitheater as another way to showcase their clubs without them being present.

ASB Director of Clubs senior Hailey Wong was in charge of planning this event. “I planned Club Re-Rush to mimic Club Rush from the first semester. It was pretty much the same layout, with a bunch of tables at the bottom of the amphitheater where students could walk around and explore the different clubs we have,” Wong said.

This brand-new event was helpful for many clubs by bringing in new members and visibility to participating clubs. Students benefited from it as well since they were able to find new clubs that fit their interests. Make-A-Wish Club was one of the many clubs that benefited from this event. “We’ve been planning many new activities and exciting events for our club, so we wanted more people to be a part of all our upcoming events. Club Re-Rush was definitely a success since we had many students approach our table who seemed very interested in our club and all of the opportunities our club will offer them,” Co-President senior Carla Alexanian said.

It’s safe to say that Club Re-Rush was a success and will hopefully continue to be a reoccurring event at Clark in the next couple of years to allow students to connect with others with similar interests.
