Groups to set up in
for Rush Week
By Joshua Johnson / Reporter
Rush Week is quickly approaching and campus clubs have high expectations of grabbing the attention of new members. As the saying goes, “There is strength in numbers,” and the clubs are looking to boost their ranks.
Last year there were 40 open clubs and organizations for students to choose from. This year, that number has dropped to 25 groups, according to Grace Carreon, an administrative aide at Del Mar College. Rush Week runs Sept. 15-19 in the Harvin Center. There will be a luncheon for club presidents Sept. 26 in the Retama Room in the same building.
Several companies looking to hire students also will on campus later this month. Those companies will gather in the Retama Room on Sept. 22 to look for students seeking new opportunities and work experience.
If students are unable to attend Rush Week or don’t have a chance to join a club, Del Mar College will host a Fall Carnival, which is another opportunity for members to display what their organization has been doing and what is to come for the next year.
This revolving door of activities is sure to be slow approaching but with careful preparation each day of events is sure to be a blowout.
