Student Activities Fair and President’s Picnic

Nearly 1,000 students attended Eastern’s President’s Picnic and Student Activities Fair on Sept. 5 on the Webb Lawn. Executive board and general members representing dozens of Eastern clubs and organizations staffed tables to recruit the hundreds of prospective members who attended the event.

The picnic and fair provides new and returning students an opportunity to connect with their peers who share similar interests. Eastern clubs and organizations cover a wide range of interests including academic, arts, sports, cultural, identity, religion, leadership and recreation. For those who had ideas of their own, a “new club” table was provided, where they could pitch ideas and gage the interest of their peers. Community partners and various campus leadership groups were also present, sharing their work and recruiting new student leaders.

“The club fair is an excellent opportunity for students to connect with each other and the university,” said The Student Government Association president Francesco Ricigliano. “It is the gateway for getting involved and jumpstarting an inclusive, productive, and rewarding college experience for students. I’m excited to see all of the wonderful things Eastern student organizations will accomplish this year!”

Ricigliano said involvement in student organizations, community engagement, and campus leadership programs provides students the opportunity to develop transferable skills such as communication, organization and leadership.

With more 120 student organizations, community partners, and campus departments present at the fair, there was something for every student!
