For those new to campus or anyone looking to get involved, check out Rush Week, Aug. 23 to Aug. 25, during A and B lunch.

Rush Week, an annual event hosted during the second week of school, provides clubs an opportunity to advertise their organization to recruit new members. Club members are present to talk to students who are interested in joining. Rush Week allows students, especially freshmen, to see the variety of extra-curricular activities offered on campus.

“I think [Rush Week] is important because we have [45] clubs on campus and that gives students a variety to choose from,” Student Government Association sponsor Cassandra Stilwell said. “Hopefully, there is one or two clubs a student can join where they can have a close group of friends to finish high school out with while doing something that interests them.”

At Rush Week, Gay-Straight Alliance co-president Tyler Locke hopes to send the message that GSA is a positive and equal environment.

“[GSA] is a safe space for those who don’t normally have somewhere they can be themselves,” Locke said. “I’m excited for this year to be able to create a close knit group and being able to provide the safe space and community Boone needs.”

Whether your interests are in baking or science, there is a club offered for all students. Here is a list of all clubs one can find at Rush Week:
