Clubs and organizations at Fresno City College hoped to create awareness as well as recruit new members during the Club Rush on Oct. 3, 2018.

A diversity of booths and clubs–the LGBTQ Spectrum club; the Teachers of Tomorrow club, and the US Army’s booth–were on display and hoping to recruit new members and raise some money to fund their projects and endeavors.

“The money raised from Club Rush will help us fund field trips, help students in the program purchase textbooks, and fund projects for the parents and children in the child care program,” said Beverly Russ, a representative for the Extended Opportunity Programs and Services. EOPS had a booth and sold homemade lemonade and Frito boats.

“[Club rush] has given me a good way to meet new people, get involved and stay out of trouble,” said Luke Winchester, LGBTQ Spectrum club treasurer.
Vice President Tory Shelly said the club aims to promote awareness, acceptance and respect for the LGBTQ+ community and encourage more safe spaces on campus where students know they can go to talk about any issues free of any judgement. Erik Torres, president of the Lambda Alpha Epsilon FCC chapter, which is for students interested in criminology. said the club was recruiting new members.

Torres said the club is trying to facilitate connections plus volunteer and job opportunities for students interested in criminal justice, while promoting “a more positive perspective of law enforcement within the student body.”

The next Club Rush will be Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018.
