Club Day brings attention to student interests

Hosting the annual Club Day event, Redwood’s South Lawn was full of students during lunch on Sept. 27. Club Day provides an opportunity for students to expand upon their interests and meet people with similar interests to them.

This year, the club fair was packed, with all 54 slots that Leadership made available for clubs to sign up for being filled. Senior Olivia Villanova, a member of Leadership, helped plan Club Day, even through some of the last minute changes.

“We got most of the sign ups in the last 24 hours,” Villanova said. “We try to pair up similar clubs at the same table, so getting the sign ups so late made it really difficult [to organize the tables] leading up to club day.”

Nonetheless, most students seemed to enjoy the event. Junior Catalina Aldana discovered and signed up for the Dead Film Society Club as well as the Horror Movie Club at the event. 

“I think it’s really cool to see all the different [clubs] people are doing. It’s very fun,” Aldana said.

Crowding around the South Lawn, many Redwood students participate in Club Day.

For those who are running clubs, Club Day provides a valuable opportunity to get people interested. Senior Dylan Weir is the president of the Tabletop Games Club, formerly the Dungeons and Dragons Club, but the club rebranded in order to attempt to expand its appeal.

“Club Day is very enjoyable. I haven’t really been counting, but I’d say we’ve gotten around 10 new signups today,” Weir said.

Club Day will continue onto its second day at lunch on Sept. 28, granting students another opportunity to find new clubs that they may have missed, as well for new clubs to participate that were not able to sign up for the first day.
