A Digital Spin on the Student Involvement Fair

Clark’s ASCC launched the Student Involvement Fair through a YouTube video on Oct. 19, after being inspired by another school’s virtual fair.

“We really liked how that looked, so we thought it would work for our college as well,” said Mila Smook, the ASCC club coordinator at Clark.

Unlike with previous in-person Student Involvement Fairs, any student with access to YouTube and google docs can attend virtually any time until the end of the fall quarter.

Every club was asked to submit a two-to-five-minute video showcasing the club’s purpose, why a student would want to join, dates and times of meeting, and any contact information. The video has a run time of approximately 38 minutes, but there are time-stamps in the description so viewers can skip to the club they’re most interested in.

If a viewer would like to be put in contact with a specific club all they have to do is click a link to a Google Docs form where they can submit their name, contact information, and the club they wish to join!

Smook stated that advertising for the event faced challenges because of the campus being closed. Students are also able to see the Involvement Fair for themselves on The Weekly Penguin Digest sent to their emails as well as Student Life’s Facebook and Instagram pages.

Smook said that in-person events usually have closer to 20 clubs participating, but only twelve contributed to this year’s YouTube video. The Fall Student Involvement Fair video went live on Oct. 19, on YouTube, and will be available through the end of the fall quarter.
