On Sept. 11 to Sept. 15 during all lunches, a variety of clubs gathered in the hub to create interest for the activities offered at State High. Numerous students could be seen wandering around the tables in hopes of finding a club that fit their interests. 

Students running the tables expressed the importance of the club fair. 

“It’s very important because sometimes clubs just don’t get a lot of recognition. I feel like a lot of the time kids are always saying they want to join clubs but they never really know which clubs to join. They don’t know what’s out there and this gives them an opportunity to talk to the people who are in these clubs,” junior Caroline Concepcion said. 

Concepcion is involved in many clubs including Empowher, pottery club, and rowing club. 

“With Empowher we get to go on fun trips with the group like yoga. Empowher has gotten so many signups since the club fair so it has helped a lot especially since we lost a lot of seniors so I’m excited,” Concepcion said.

Clubs are a crucial part of high school, helping students find new interests, make new friends, and feel like a part of the community. It also helps students grow in the activity they are doing as well as in their social and academic lives. 

“I joined the Rowing Club and Outing Club because I enjoy outdoor activities and I get to do it with people who also enjoy it. In rowing I like being on the water and I made a lot of new friends through it,” junior Claire Heaney said, explaining the impact clubs had on her. 

Countless other students at State High have had similar experiences by joining the clubs offered. 

Isabel Olson, a State High junior, echoed Concepcion and Heaney’s thoughts. 

“It’s important for students to get involved and join clubs because it connects them to people that have similar interests as them and it gives them an outlet to express themselves and do those activities with other people,” Olson said.

The club fair presented a great opportunity for students to find clubs that interested them as well as for club members to gain more members and create more chatter about their clubs. If students couldn’t make it to the club fair or didn’t find any that piqued their interests there are many other clubs, they can look through the virtual club fair slideshow here.
