The Office of Student Leadership and Activities (OSLA) hosted its sping semester involvement fair at the Mack Student Center this week to encourage students to participate in the more than 200 extracurricular and community outreach clubs and organizations at Hofstra.
“As a new student, it’s been a great way to meet people and make friends,” said Meghan Orsino, a freshman public relations student and member of the Quidditch team—a competitive sport based on the Harry Potter series. “My life at Hofstra revolves around the dorm room, the classroom, and Quidditch practice field—I love it.”
From pre-professional organizations to fraternities and club sports, students had the opportunity to meet with representatives of all interests, including media, religion, business, culinary, drama, sports, community service, academic, social and politically/socially active. And, OSLA encourages students to introduce new ideas for clubs and organizations as well. Students can contact OSLA at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
“It seemed like such an interesting group of people,” said a senior acting major who represented the anthropology club. “It’s not my area of study, but that didn’t matter. I saw it as a chance to branch out and experience something different. I’m so glad I joined.”
