Over 100 student clubs from every FAU campus have signed up to recruit new members at the Boca campus’ Rec Center.

This annual gathering, known as Club Fest, will be held on Aug. 31 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be free food, a live DJ and prize giveaways. “I would safely say there will be [over 120] organizations participating in this year’s event due to our continuous marketing and promotion,” said Katie Burke, Boca campus’ Council of Student Organizations (COSO) coordinator. COSO is responsible for funding student clubs, and hosting Club Fest.
“Club Fest allows us to recruit students and give them the chance to do something they wouldn’t normally get to experience every day,” said FAU’s Film Club president Peter Amirato, who’ll be attending the event for his club. Amirato said his Club Fest booth will have cameras, video equipment and T-shirts bearing his club’s logo.
Andrew Hackett, a founding member of the Owl Rangers, will also be attending Club Fest. According to Hackett, Owl Rangers’ club members go to all FAU home volleyball, basketball and football games painted from the waist up in school colors. He said the reason is to spread and encourage school spirit. “We are the sixth man out there on the court, we are part of the team,” said Hackett. The Owl Rangers’ booth plans on holding competitions for prizes.
“Students should attend Club Fest, they will be able to immediately connect with new students and hear what the student organizations have planned for the upcoming semester,” said Burke. For more info on Club Fest, visit www.fau.edu/sil.
