The in-person Winter Involvement Fair was held on February 2 after being postponed a week due to extreme cold weather. There was a wide variety of clubs and organizations that were all able to attend, their goals ranging from spiritual to community and cultural building, major assistance, or hobby groups.
Some clubs were St. Cloud State regulars like the Rowing Club and Student Government, while others were new this semester like R.I.S.E. of the Hmond Women, a club set up for creating a community and networking opportunities for its members. Also in attendance were hobby clubs like Running Club and Super Smash Bros Group, as well as community building organizations like the LGBT Resource Center, Multicultural Student Services, and Catholic Student Community- Newman Center. Several university student service organizations made an appearance including the fairly new Huskies Advance program.
Many of the organizations were excellent networking opportunities for after college and excellent ways to get involved on the St. Cloud State campus. There was also a Zoom option for the Involvement Fair, an addition that was added due to COVID-19, that allowed for some organizations that could not make it to the in-person option to still attract new members. Overall, there was a wide variety of clubs and organizations that were able to attend the in-person Winter Involvement Fair.
