On October 15, the Student Government Association approved and welcomed six new clubs to Emmanuel College at their weekly Tuesday meeting.
First to be approved was the EC Tap Team, a competitive tap dancing team separate from the dance team. This team is open to all, and tap shoes are not required to join, until competition. The team may soon be open to students of other COF colleges.
Next was Face AIDS, a club originating from students at Stanford University. This club is dedicated to fundraising for areas of the world affected most by AIDS. Face AIDS will also have guest speakers coming to help spread awareness. This club is just another example of EC students reaching out to others outside our campus community.
EC Uke, a group that has gone unrecognized for some time, has finally become an official EC club. The club gives students the opportunity to teach and learn the ukulele. They plan on performing on the quad for all to hear and enjoy.
Another club aims to spread gender equality and awareness. S/He will work with the women’s studies department to exhibit trends and issues having to do with gender equality. For example, they will be selling baked goods, priced higher for males to purchase to represent the wage gap between working men and women.
EC Improvisation is a group that practices theatrical improv, which will “help with acting and public speaking skills,” said Jamie Crisman ’16, president of the new club. “It will change your life.”
The club will have weekly meetings and may also be traveling to see various Boston improv performances. It may also be open to the other COF schools.
Campus Cursive is a dedicated to spreading love and support among the EC community. The club is based off of an online organization, moreloveletters.com, which offers anonymous support and advice to those who request letters. The club will give EC students the opportunity to reach out to others and offer support through letters, hidden around the school to find.
“It offers Emmanuel students the chance to connect and relate with each other and their community, even if they do not speak directly to the person! Hopefully students will take the opportunity to reach out to their community and spread the love!,“ says Lauren Mullett ’15, public relations for the new club, “[Writing letters is] becoming a bit of a lost art, and Campus Cursive will utilize it to reach out to someone and hopefully make their day a little better!”
