Ryan Revock/ Arizona Daily Wildcat Clubs at the University of Arizona had to register for the Student Involvement Fair through Danielle Novelly, the ASUA executive vice president and political science senior, so they can participate. The fair will be on the UA Mall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2013.

From sports organizations and cultural clubs to groups that help the community and professional fraternities and sororities, 150 booths and tables will line the UA Mall from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. tomorrow.

The Student Involvement Fair was organized by the Associated Students of the University of Arizona and the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership.

“In my opinion, the number one way to succeed at this school is to be involved with something,” said Morgan Abraham, ASUA president. “There’s so many ways to get involved. That’s one of the benefits of going to such a large university … Sometimes, at such a large university, it’s easy to get lost, and even though there are so many things to do, it’s tough to find those things, and I think the idea with the fair is to show the students what’s out there.”

Clubs will be sectioned together on the Mall by interest, Abraham added.

“I love meeting new people, especially people with interests that I have,” Abraham said. “I think that’s what’s cool about the Student Involvement Fair and different clubs — you’re surrounding yourself with people who kind of think like you, and that’s always fun.”

Trenton Cherco, an engineering management junior and president of TriCats, has attended the Student Involvement Fair the past two years and said he is looking forward to the opportunity to expand TriCats to new students. TriCats is a student recreational sports club on campus that focuses on training for triathlons and living active lives.

“I think it’s good, especially for freshmen, just so they have something to do besides class,” Cherco said. “It’s a great way to meet friends and meet new people. I get to meet people I normally wouldn’t have met just through class and experience things I wouldn’t have on my own.”
