New students may have trouble starting a social life or finding where they feel comfortable. However, Del Mar College has a diverse selection of clubs that are recruiting members continuously. Many will take part in Rush Week, which is organized at the beginning of the semester to help students engage in activities and join clubs. The event is set for Sept. 12-16 in the Harvin Center on East Campus.
“Rush Week is a chance for the students to sign up for clubs and frats to their liking. Fifty-one registered clubs will be set up showcasing each club and giv- ing you more information about them,” said Beverly Cage, director of Student Leadership and Campus Life.
Clubs range from Early Childhood Development to Social Dance and more. There are many varieties of clubs at Del Mar, and it is easy to form your own. To form your own club you must have twelve members and two advisers. Just five members are needed to continue the club.
Del Mar funds the clubs, which can also put together events and fundraisers to make more money. Students must do one service project on campus and one off each semester.
Del Mar also has a small variety of sororities and a frat to choose from. The Phi Theta Kappa, Gamma Sigma Chapter is put together to help build leadership and share ideas amongs scholars. There are many benefits that tie into being in a Registered Student Organization. Many honors and awards are received by students who excel in these clubs.
