Members of the clubs and societies will be at various tables during that time frame to recruit new members and share what they do. Some clubs are hosting additional events throughout the week.

All-Clubs Mocktail Mixer

On Friday, September 17, students who sign up for a club and/or society or are interested in learning more can receive free themed drinks from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m in the Whitebone Pizzeria during the Clubs and Societies “mocktail mixer”. Each club will be offering a different beverage.

Why join a club?

To many students, including third-year student Amal Koshy, involvement in student life is very important, and joining a club or society is a great way to do so. “You get to [meet] like-minded people.

“[Joining a club or society] also expands your network both in and out of campus… It enriches your resume and increases your marketability.”

For more information or if you can’t make it to the quad this week, check out the UNB-SRC’s website and social media for more information on the different clubs and societies that are active on our campus.
