As Archer enters its fourth week back at school, new and returning students alike are getting involved within the community. 

Friday, Oct. 5 was the annual club fair, an event which allowed students to promote and join more than 40 student-run clubs. Today was the first day students could attend clubs. Offerings included Hermanas Unidas and and Sci Fi Fantasy Club.

Students said that joining clubs allows them to meet people who share common interests and experiences.

“My favorite part of being in a club is the community and the girls who are advocating for the things that [they] believe in,” Zoe Woolenberg ‘23 said.

This year, Dean of Students Jenn Babin introduced two categories of clubs: AAA (Alliance, Affinity or Activism) and interest. Several AAA clubs include Students of Color at Archer, the Black Student Union, Mental Health Awareness Club and the Jewish Student Community Club.

“I think that the fact that people really want to go to the club shows that there is a community that really cares about the issue we’re discussing,” Mental Health Awareness Club leader Stella Smyth ’19 said.
