Once a year the courtyard fills with colorful posters, filled sign-up lists, tasty treats and joyous cheers. It can only mean one event: the Club Fair.

This year, students gathered in the courtyard at lunch on Friday, Sep. 22, to showcase student-run clubs.

Many clubs are continuations of previously created student-groups, while others are brand new and hope to appeal to a previously unseen niche.

Jael Ellman ’18 and Lena Jones ’20 co-lead the Coexistence Club, which is in it’s second year.

“It’s important that we have this club because many people feel uncomfortable with the topic of religion, and we think it’s important to expand people’s mind and talk about taboo topics,” Ellman said in an email interview. “Especially now that religion is in politics, it’s important to learn about many religions and values.”

Some clubs are discussion based, while others are focused around activities or service.

The InvenTeam was previously a class, but now meets as a club. Their objective this year is to create a new invention with the Lemelson-MIT program.

“We will be mainly writing proposals in hopes of getting a grant from the Lemelson-MIT program to bring our invention to life next year,” Elyse Pollack ’18, a co-leader, said. “At the club fair, I was hoping to recruit members to join the InvenTeam and help us in our new process. Also, since there were lots of seniors on the team last year that graduated, we need to build our team and find people who are willing to help, want to invent and want to learn about engineering.”
