Consider a new club this semester

Club Craze filled SUNY Brockport’s ballroom with excitement. Club leaders were open to speaking about the details regarding events held by them.  

President of the new Ski and Snowboard Club, sophomore Missy Kern was enthusiastic about introducing her new club.  

“We are planning on taking weekly trips up to Bristol Mountain just for fun casual skiing. We’ll be holding club events to meet other people and get to know our members while we aren’t out on the slopes. Anyone is welcome no matter the skill level, it’s just to come and have fun,” Kern said.  

With the Ski and Snowboard Club being new to the spring 2023 semester, there are budget issues students may be concerned about.  

“We get discounted passes through Bristol since we are an official club. Fundraising events are being planned to help reimburse the students since we don’t have any financial funds for this semester,” Kern said.  

Opposite to this are deep-rooted clubs like the Caribbean Student Association (CSA). vice-president, Alyssa Morrissey is passionate about CSA because it brings her culture to the small town of Brockport.  

“We do a lot of cultural events on campus, one of our biggest is Carnival, which is a very important tradition in Caribbean countries,” Morrissey said. “We do our best to make costumes for models in a big pageant. The contestants answer questions, and someone wins either Mr. or Mrs. CSA. Most candidates are already involved in the club or attend a lot of events, but you don’t have to be affiliated.”

There are sports clubs and culture clubs, but there are also academic ones. Sociology Club president Juan Morales Perez uses this organization to bridge the gap between students and professors.  

“Sociology is about building communities and understanding how social dynamics work because people are influenced by social environments. In our club we have done career building events, resume workshops, game nights and tea socials where we just have casual sociological discourse about what we’re learning in class and what’s interesting to us,” Morales Perez said.

Participation in clubs is a significant part of college students’ lives, and club Craze gives students a look at their options without committing to one right off the bat. Students can find more information on the clubs mentioned on myBROCKPORT.
