The Rio Clubs website, new this year, allows students to view all active clubs in one place and contact officers to join.

As the second semester gets into full swing and students approach the one-year mark of distance learning, Student Government is working harder than ever to make sure students, especially freshmen, feel included in the Rio community.

Last fall, Student Government put on a week-long virtual Club Rush event where students had the option to explore different clubs and get in contact with leadership to find something that was right for them.

However, there are still a lot of students who were unaware of the initial Club Rush and now, entering the second semester, want to be part of something at Rio. This is especially true for freshmen who haven’t had the opportunity to spend time physically in class with their peers and want to meet new friends.

In response to this need from students and to boost membership in new clubs not included in the fall Rush Week, Student Government is presenting another opportunity for students to join clubs this week.

The Rio Clubs website has been updated to ensure that all contact information for clubs is current and specifies which clubs are accepting new members and which clubs have closed to new members for this year.

Clubs on campus can be a good way for students to unwind from the stresses that distance learning brings amongst others with similar interests and can also offer opportunities for students to discover their passions. Even virtually, Student Government has continued working with club officers to ensure that every student has a place where they can express themselves and fit in within the Rio community.
