Students gather for Elective Fair to finish off Advisory Week

Clubs and organizations gathered to display their talents and recruit new students on Jan. 26. This event, called the electives fair, was part of Advisory Week, helping students pick classes for the next school year. Many of the stands were in the Main Quad, including the Japanese Club, Freestyle Academy of Digital Arts and Communications, theater, and more.

“Everybody’s super fun and welcoming and friendly,” sophomore Jay Wilks said. “It’s a nice environment.”

Wilks said he was crewing for the Japanese Club table, hoping to spread Japanese culture.

“It’s super fun, and I’ve honestly loved it for the two years that I’ve been going here, and this has been my favorite club-class…,” Wilks said. 

The Freestyle Academy booth featured student created videos and art, such as a 3D printed octopus, zombie film, ornate wood carvings, and wooden business cards.

“Join Freestyle,” junior Julia Kipnis said. “It’s the best choice you’ll ever make.” 

Kipnis described the quad as buzzing, with many clubs present and many people signing up for various electives. 

One of the tables was a multi-purpose booth that promoted the theater program, with stagecraft and acting, as well as the Oracle and its digital broadcasting. 

Junior Senator Trent McCauley IV, a crew member for the booth, said he was answering questions about what various classes were about, and informing people what the incentives for joining various programs are. The day also saw business taking place, with a fair-goer trying to buy the booth’s mannequin.

“I made him an offer,” McCauley IV said. “He was a good guy.”

Another table served to answer student questions about various classes, such as course load and homework.

“There’s lots of clubs out here, lots of people signing up, lots of people interested,” Kipnis said. “Very nice vibes.”
