CLOGs recruit, publicize for members
Students, from freshmen to seniors, gathered for the Clubs and Organizations (CLOG) Rush on the green at lunchtime from Sept. 4 to Sept. 6. CLOG Rush is a three day event where CLOG officers try to recruit other students.
There were 62 CLOGs chartered this year which is constant with how many were chartered the previous years, according to CLOG Commissioner Kyle Nguyen.
“The CLOGs were allowed to sign up for the day they wanted at CLOG Council, ” Nguyen said. “There were about 30 CLOGs out [on the green] each day.”
CLOGs use fliers, posters, and other tactics to bring in members and signups. All fliers have to be cleared by the activity office, according to Activities Director Joanna Butcher.
“There were a couple groups that decided to go rogue and not follow the fair and equitable guidelines,” Butcher said. “There was one inappropriate poster that was confiscated by administration.”
The energy of the students representing their clubs is exciting, according to Senior Julie Nguyen. Most of the people go to CLOG Rush and try to recruit members, she continued.
Among the most spirited CLOGs were Interact and Dragon Boat, K.Nguyen said. Interact had the most signups with over 650, he added.
There are no major changes to the CLOG system this year, Butcher said. Congress and Unity, however, continue to help lower the required monthly meetings.
“As a school we have been encouraging and pushing for groups to work together rather than against each other,” Butcher said. “A couple have taken that to heart but we would like to see more combined effort for service on this campus.”
