There are many opportunities to get involved on Dominican’s campus. My freshman year I took some time to look around and try out the club and organizations I was interested in, such as Fashion Club, Student Leadership and Ministry and Campus Activities Board.
I started in Campus Activities Board (CAB) as the publicity co-chair, a position in which I was able to use my creativity to invite students to events on campus. Now, as a junior, I am vice president of CAB. We plan many events throughout the year for students, such as an Outdoor Movie, a Homecoming Dance, and Casino Night. Campus Activities Board was in high gear putting on events for Homecoming Week, October 9-13. You can watch a video (right) with highlights of the week.
One of my favorites is our annual Sundaes with the Sisters event, in which students get to eat ice cream and chat with some of the wonderful Sisters that teach and live on campus. It was amazing to watch students learning from the experiences of the Sisters.
Other events we held were a bonfire and a movie night where students came to enjoys watching The Great Gatsby. Finally, on Saturday night after the soccer games, students came to Parmer Hall for our Great Gatsby-themed dance. Fashion club put on a costume contest for those that dressed in all the glamour that goes along with the 1920’s.
This Homecoming Week is only one example of all the exciting things that CAB and other clubs and organizations do at Dominican. I am proud to be a part of an organization that provides fun events for students at Dominican and that brings people together through conversation and fun!
At Dominican anyone is welcome to get involved in the clubs and organizations and be a leader on campus. For me, being involved at Dominican has helped me to grow as a leading and as a human being.
