FAU Hosts Club Fest to Promote Student Involvement
BOCA RATON, FL (October 31, 2011) – Florida Atlantic University will host Club Fest on Wednesday, November 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the FAU Breezeway, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus. The event will provide an opportunity for fraternities, sororities and other student organizations to come together to promote philanthropy and school spirit through table displays, decorations and member participation in a spirit competition.
“Club Fest is a great way for members of student organizations to promote involvement and leadership with fellow students through school spirit and enthusiastic representation,” said Alicia Keating, associate director of FAU’s Student Involvement and Leadership Office. “Located in the heart of campus, the Breezeway has always been a popular and busy spot so it’s the perfect venue for events like this.”
Club Fest is taking place during the week of “Homecoming 2011: Building Traditions for 50 Years.” However, FAU’s more than 250 clubs and organizations also use the Breezeway throughout the year to promote group programming, recruit members and/or raise awareness for various causes. Clubs and organizations range anywhere from science affinity groups, such as the Human Powered Submarine Club, to trending culinary movements such as Slow Food FAU.
