Students lined up in the Harvin Center to sign up for clubs during Del Mar College’s Club Rush Week on Jan. 21-23.

Rush Week is a chance for students to participate in something that peeks their interest or be a part of club that can benefit them in their career paths.

“Participating in clubs and activities on campus will help future students develop leadership, communication, organizational and team-building skills.  These are soft skills that employers look for,” said Beverly Cage, director of student leadership and campus life.

Booths displayed their club’s information, and all they had to offer such as meetings, projects and benefits. 

Jennifer Gonzales, career service coordinator, said student clubs are a great way to meet people who have the same interests.  

“When a student is active on campus with student organizations they are more than likely to be successful in their academic and career goals,” Gonzales said.

Gonzales said networking is a great way to help students choose their career path. She added that clubs bring in guest speakers to talk about different industry topics.

Radio and television major Robert Johnson said clubs give students a chance to come together and collaborate. 

“Del Mar has clubs that can help out many people. All the clubs have great benefits, you just have to find the one you’re most comfortable with,” Johnson said.
