While Del Mar College’s Rush Week might not be the typical pledging to a sorority or fraternity, it does allow plenty of chances for students to connect with those who share similar interests.
Several clubs gathered in the Harvin Center the week of Sept. 12-16 to recruit new members.
“I myself do love art,” said Maria Esparza, 22, a liberal arts student. “I’m going to finish my basics first. Once I finish that I’m going to go into graphic design or study to be a art teacher.”
Esparza spoke with Gwendolyn Creacy, VP of the Student Art Association, who gave her all the information needed to join the Art Club.
The next table was for the Geology Club, where Del Mar student Odrina Bazan expressed her concern over a lack of photographs to show off the amazing adventures.
Across the hall Kenneth McGraw, president of Phi Theta Kappa, was also recruiting students. He explained the requirements needed to join.
“You have to have completed six credit hours, and have a GPA of 3.5,” McGraw told a student.
Alongside him was his VP of Phi Theta Kappa, Susana Samayoa, who stood not only at his table but also at a table to the right of them for the Ambassadors Club, where Samayoa is the acting president.
Other groups included the Automobile Club, Precision Metal Club and more.
