Augustana’s clubs and how to join them

On Sept. 27, the forum was filled with displays advertising the various clubs offered to students at Augustana. The Club Fair provided students with the chance to meet club representatives and sign up for clubs they’re interested in. Most clubs accept new members throughout the year and are easy to approach and join.

Here’s a look at the clubs that were at this fall’s Club Fair:
