First Club Rush since pandemic set to take place September 13 and 14.

Club Rush, Volunteer Fest, and Resource Fair at Southern and Dobson Campus on September 13 and 14.

Mesa Community College will have their first in-person club rush for the fall semester since the pandemic on September 13 and September 14 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Navajo Room at the Southern and Dobson campus. 

The club rush will actually be combined with the usually separate Volunteer Fest and Resource Fair. The Civic Engagement Center has partnered with Student Life to have volunteers and people who provide resources on campus for those who attend.

The event gives students the opportunity to explore the extra curricular possibilities at MCC. Students can meet with MCC clubs and organizations, enter giveaways, get information about campus resources and volunteer opportunities, and get free food, according to Cara Webb.

“The purpose is to get students involved for clubs on campus because a lot of students don’t know about them. We’re having advisors physically be there so they can tell students about the club,” stated administrative specialist for Student Life, Cara Webb.

Club Rush currently has 16 clubs signed up for Tuesday and Wednesday’s event. Student Life is still accepting clubs to participate in Club Rush, according to Webb. Club advisors must contact Cara Webb at cara.webb@mesacc.edu to be on the list for all participating clubs.

In previous years, Club Rush was located at the Clock Tower, but it will now be in the Navajo Room. The hot weather is the reason for the change, and that it will help students want to stay and interact with clubs, according to Webb. 

“We think it’s one of our biggest spaces on campus since this year we decided to include our volunteer organization as well as our resource fair, this way we have more room so we can be spread out at our student life lounge and hallway area,” said Webb.

Club Rush, Volunteer Fest, and Resource Fair will be from 10-2 p.m. on September 13 and September 14 in the Navajo Room at the Southern and Dobson Campus.
