This week includes the first club fair of the year at CGCC. The past Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon, student club members hosted tables outside the student pavilion at the Pecos campus, to introduce the clubs and organizations to new potential members. 

This excitingly informal event was a great chance to meet other students with similar interests, and build a stronger network on campus. Most but not all clubs were in attendance, and provided a qr code to sign up. Additionally, all the clubs are listed under student life in clubs and organizations (student-life), which will then take you to the clubs page in Coyote Connect where you can sign up as well. 

There were definitely some standouts, one being the Fashion Lifestyle and More club! I spoke with president Celeste Garcia who told me “I wanted to start the club to make new friends and be creative. It was definitely difficult to get it all started at first, but as it went on it felt more and more like hanging out with friends and a lot less stressful.”  I learned about some exciting field trips they had last semester, such as going to the Phoenix art museum and Maricopa’s Equity Prism Drag Ball (With Willow Pill winner of Ru Paul’s Drag Race season 14 headlining!). When asked what the club environment was like, Celeste explained “Our members enjoy meeting new people and having fun while exploring the latest trends and ideas. We believe in the power of creativity and individual expression, and we aim to provide a platform where everyone can share their unique perspectives and experiences.” For any who are interested in Fashion Lifestyle and More, meets every other Friday at noon in SC 103.

One of the larger clubs is actually the Esports club. This group provides a space for the gamers of our campus. They have their own computer lab located just outside the library, being open Monday through Friday 2pm till 10pm for students to hang out, play games, or be a nerd and study. The games the Esports club focuses on, or at least has teams for, are Valorant, Overwatch, League of Legends, Rocket League, and Call of Duty. They also have a discord server for students to socialize on as well (

 This event was a great opportunity to meet some of the student leaders and clubs on campus, and there are certainly still more clubs and organizations to learn about which can be found in student-life
