The new school year began with the Student Organization Involvement Fair which showcased the wide variety of organizations that make up the Cuyamaca College campus, and also made it easy for new and returning students to become involved. The Grand Lawn was filled with student organizations’ information tables that were filled with information about their clubs, scheduled events, and available leadership positions. The newly formed Psychology Club, which was organized at the end of last Spring semester, recruited 43 new members at the Involvement Fair.
Representatives from Cuyamaca College’s student organizations, Student Government officers were on site to greet students and inform them about the numerous opportunities to become involved on campus. In addition to the educational aspects of the Student Organization Fair, there was plenty of free food and music. San Diego’s KZBT 94.9 radio added to the festivities by broadcasting live during the event and giving away prizes. Cuyamaca College’s Student Government kicked off its voter registration campaign, registering students and providing them with information provided by the San Diego Registrar of Voters.
Other Welcome Week activities included a free breakfast for students, free BBQ with games on the Grand Lawn, and a “Meet and Greet” with the Student Government student leadership.
