Fair showcases campus organizations
Posted on September 18, 2013
Campus organizations set up displays and activities on the Erskine Mall Sept. 10. With 27 organizations represented, the Organization Fair was “a fun-themed, interactive event that swamped the mall from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.,” according to Student Government Association Vice President Hannah Collins.
“Ministries as well as societies were present and student leaders were running from one table to another, since many of them were representing more than one organization,” Collins said.
Erskine’s Rho Psi Chapter of the national theater honor society Alpha Psi Omega (APO) brought out costumes and props, allowing students to dress up and take pictures, Collins reported, and Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM) hosted a homemade toss game.
Other activities centered around the Society of Visual Arts (SOVA), whose members “pulled from their leftover supplies and had craft options for those who wanted to paint,” Collins said.
But it was the national biological honor society, Beta Beta Beta (also called Tri Beta) that “blew away all competition with their turtle and snake display, along with their ‘Adopt-a-Plant’ campaign,” she said. All plants were given away.
Also on hand for the fair were members of the Yearbook Committee, who distributed copies of the Arrow.
Collins reported that “organizations had good promise of interest and sign-ups were off the charts in comparison to last year.”
