    The Student Activities Fair is “the best opportunity to get to know all that campus has to offer regarding student engagement,” according to University senior Taylor Roman, secretary for Student Government. One hundred student clubs and organizations are expected to participated in this year’s Activities Fair, which is set for on Saturday, Aug. 29, from noon to 3 p.m. on Fitzpatrick Field.

    “I would strongly recommend students attend the fair, especially first year students,” said Roman, “I remember when I attended the Activities Fair my first year, I signed up for so many different clubs and then throughout the semester I was able to narrow it down to a few that I really enjoyed.”

    Roman would recommend students “sign up for anything that even partly interests you, because signing up does not mean you have to commit, you are simply showing interest in learning more about that club. I would even encourage other students who are not first years to attend because I feel that it is important that everyone finds something to get involved in and keep busy with, especially with all the current restrictions on campus.”

    Roman, Poughkeepsie, New York, will be representing the International Business Club at the fair. An international business major at Scranton, Roman serves as vice president of International Business Club.

    The rain date for the fair is Sunday, Aug. 30.
