Winter Club Fair highlights RU's many opportunities for student engagement

Hundreds of students flooded Radford University's Recreation and Wellness Center on Jan. 23 for Winter Club Fair, which featured almost 100 unique campus clubs and organizations.

"This is the first time we have had a facility with enough room to have a Winter Club Fair inside," said Ben Litvak, coordinator of student organizations.

Club Fair provides opportunities for students to work together and with the community.

"Mainly, we want to get students involved, help them get better grades and add to the overall experience they have while at Radford," said Litvak.

"Women can be negative and mean these days. Ladies of Value and Empowerment (LOVE) is here to create and send positive vibes," said LOVE President Quiana Mizell. "We have a lot of events going on to celebrate Valentine’s Day and set up a booth at club fair today to get the word out and encourage more women to join."

Ladies of Value and Empowerment (LOVE) is a club that focuses on positivity and women.

Residence Hall Association (RHA) was also displayed at Club Fair and helps students living on campus and in the community.

"We do community service events like 'RU Scared' at which we bring in kids who won’t have a Halloween and let them trick or treat," said Katelyn Bailey. "RHA is here today to get the word out and add to the student experience."

Sophomore Lara Sop was just browsing the club fair and she said, "This is my second club fair and it’s crowded," Sop added that that she thought the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) was the most interesting booth at club fair.

The Winter Club Fair is sponsored by the Student Organization Assistance and Resources (SOAR) office and the Department of Student Activities.
