With over 60 clubs, finding the right one can be difficult. With so many choices like Chess Club, Book Club, or even Wrestling and Archery, it can get confusing, not to mention, why would you want to join one in the first place. “To be able to see what’s out there,” Sponsor of the Young Democrats Club Glenn Prince claimed, “to get to know other people; it’s important to be involved in school activities.”

No matter your interest, there is always a club for you. Because of the number of clubs and activities that the school supplies, it may be hard to figure out what clubs are out there. That’s why Club Rush is such a big event. Set in the courtyard, many clubs went out on September 11 to show off what they do and what they stand for during first and second lunch. In the case of The Cabot Car Cruisers Club, they wanted to drive home the meaning of what they stand for with a fully customized car.

“It gives kids an opportunity to see all the clubs and pick a club to be a part of,” Sponsor of Car Cruisers Club Bill McReynolds stated. Club Rush gives kids the ability to see what they can be a part of, and to join with old friends while meeting new ones.

If you don’t see a club you like, you can always ask to make a new one. Take, for example, The American Sign Language Club (ASL); a way for people to learn and appreciate ASL. Want to learn about how to spread happiness? How about a positive club about ethics, like the new Ethics Club? Clubs are made out of student interest, so whatever you want to see can happen, like how the Anime club was created a few years ago because a student asked to have one. It went from a simple idea to a big group where lots of students show up just to watch anime together. “Student interest is important to keep a club going,” Gatewood stated. “If a student is not involved, let us know so we can help you.” So don’t be afraid to ask about making a new club, who knows how many people are interested in the same thing.

The biggest thing is that not many people see the use of clubs. Most high schoolers are busy trying to get homework done or cramming for that math quiz next period. The stress can build and build, and then grades could start slipping.  “Clubs,” Vice-Principal Nicole Gatewood explained, “are important to students because if the students can plug in and be connected with a positive group on campus, we feel like they’re going to be more successful academically, socially, they’ll enjoy school overall more if they’re involved with a group, so the club aspect is a key component in secondary education.” Clubs are a great way to cool off, get rid of some of that stress, and meet others who can help you.
