At the start of each new academic school year, campus organizations host a handful of events designed to welcome students into the Pacific University community and help them get involved through club participation, job opportunities and internships. Two of the larger events that are held annually at Pacific are the Club Fair and Career Fair.
“The Club Fair is designed both for incoming and returning students to explore the many clubs we have on campus and to begin getting involved,” senior Elona Wilson, Undergraduate Student Senate Vice President of Leadership said.
The Club Fair, which is set for Sept. 6 from 5:007:00 p.m., will be held in conjunction with the Forest Grove Farmer’s Market. At the event, students will be able to explore different club tables on the Marsh Hall lawn while also enjoying food, drink and music. Wilson said Outdoor Pursuits will also have games and activities for students to partake in during the Club Fair.
According to Wilson the USS will be adding an incentive for students to explore all club options by giving away five dollar tokens to the Farmer’s Market to the first 200 students who complete their “Passport to Pacific.”
In addition to the Club Fair, the Career Development Center will host its Work Service Fair on Aug. 31 from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. on the Marsh Hall lawn. The Work Service Fair will bring over 100 recruiters for jobs, internships, volunteer organizations and work study positions to campus for students to explore career options.
