The Fall Activities Fair, organized annually by the Student Activities Council, provides an opportunity for student clubs to advertise themselves to freshmen while simultaneously exposing freshmen to the many opportunities at Penn. Around 5:00 on Tuesday, Locust Walk transformed into a bustling hub filled with posters, tables, snacks, flyers, and students.
On one side of Locust Walk, members of club sports, such as rugby, tennis, baseball, and soccer, lined up in uniform, showed off their equipment, and scheduled tryouts for eager students. On the other side, representatives from some of Penn’s internationally competitive teams, such as the Parliamentary Debate Society and the Aerial Robotics club, eagerly sought to recruit new members. Cultural clubs were also well represented, including the Lebanese Club, Korean Students Association, and the Canadian Club, to name a few.
The list of groups goes on: performing arts, volunteer, pre-professional, all side-by-side for this one late-summer afternoon.
