In-Person Student Involvement Fair helps clubs gain members

As the new school year commences, the student involvement fair was a great opportunity for both newcomers and returning students to become involved with campus activities and meet new people. 

Following last year’s virtual fair, this year’s had a significant turnout and proved to be a lively event. The fair presented students with an array of 50 different club and organization tables to check out, such as Dance Team, STEAM Club, Spectrum, Black Student Union and much more.  

Of the many student organizations you might’ve seen at the Student Involvement Fair, Movie Crew, a club that has been entertaining VWU students since 2018, is ready for this quarantine-free year and has lots of plans up its sleeve.

“This year being that we are back in-person, we have a bunch of plans in the works,” said Leilanie Sheppard, Movie Crew’s student leader. 

“We of course are hopefully looking forward to our annual Spring Dive-In Movie for next semester, as well as possibly doing a Haunted Trails Event for Halloween this coming October,” Sheppard said.“I can’t get into too many details as plans are still being made, but I will say it’s definitely something you don’t want to miss out on.” 

Movie Crew’s involvement fair table featured movie trivia and voting for the first feature’s genre. Aside from these activities, plenty of decorations and smiling faces (behind the masks) helped Movie Crew win ‘Best Table’ from Student Activities and earn their organization $100. 

Also on display at the Student Involvement Fair, a few new clubs such as the Martial Arts Club, Roundnet Club and Fishing Club are being added to VWU’s lineup of student organizations this year as well. 

Whether you’re a new or returning student, check out the student organizations offered here at VWU, and get involved. If you weren’t able to make it to the Student Involvement Fair or simply just want to try something new, you can find the list of student organizations at
