Student Activities Fair

For the first time since fall 2019, the fall Student Activities Fair will return to its in-person format, hosting students looking to get involved in an organization on campus. The fair will be held outdoors Sunday, Aug. 22, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the Kelvin Smith Library oval, Tinkham Veale University Center patio and Freiburger Field. 

Presented by Undergraduate Student Government (USG), this year’s activities fair will once again include tables where student-run clubs and organizations will have members and leaders stationed to answer questions and help students learn more. In addition to booths for more than 200 clubs and organizations, this year’s fair will also feature stage performances from several student groups and ice cream for attendees.

“We hope that students will meet many of the clubs and organizations that we have on campus and find at least one that they want to join,” said Preeti Naik, USG vice president of finance and activities fair organizer. “We also hope that by attending this event and finding clubs that they want to join, students will get a sense of the CWRU community and find their place within it.”

While the Student Activities Fair is typically presented for first-year students to help introduce them to opportunities to engage with their interests, all students are welcome—especially second-year students who did not have the opportunity to attend an in-person fair in 2020.

“I’m very excited to be back on campus and holding in-person events, and that we’re trying new things this year,” said Naik. “I hope students know how excited we all are to welcome them to and back to campus with this event!”

Students are reminded that masks are required outdoors when individuals cannot maintain six feet of distance among one another.
