Get Involved!

Want to get involved this fall? Looking to meet new people, find a hobby, or explore Geneva? Then mark your calendars: Involvement Expo 2009 will take place on the Quad from 5 -7 p.m. on Friday, Sept.  4.  In the event of rain, it will be held in the Vandervort Room in the Scandling Campus Center.

The Expo includes a number of booths set up with information from a multitude of clubs. Seventeen departments will be in attendance, including Career Services, WEOS (the Colleges’ radio station), Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning, Learn to Lead, Alcohol and Other Drug Education Project, Intramurals, Religious Life, Finger Lakes Institute, and more.

“The Involvement Expo is an event that showcases student organizations and other ways to get involved,” explains Robert Pool, director of Student Activities. “It’s a very colorful, high-energy recruitment opportunity. Our first-years, in particular, get to see what options are out there; to sample the buffet, if you will.”

Many of the tables will have prizes, food, games and giveaways, and a DJ will provide a fun acoustic atmosphere. “It’s a mini-carnival,” says Pool.

Spearheading the event this year is Cully Seamans, secretary and publicity specialist of Student Affairs. “The Involvement Expo gives students the opportunity to get involved in activities that can complement their academics,” says Seamans. “We have close to 80 clubs now, so there’s always something going on, whether on campus or off.”
