Did you miss the club and resource fairs this quarter? But are still interested in joining a club? The Ebbtide has you covered.

Student Life hosted two club fairs this winter quarter which featured an array of clubs and resources. The club fairs were held on Thursday Feb. 2 and Wednesday Feb. 8 inside the PUB’s main dining hall. At the events, students were able to travel the perimeter of the room browsing tri-fold boards to find information about clubs and resources that interested them. Here’s a few the clubs and resources that attended the fair.


The library was a popular hotspot for student attendees. Librarian Lauren Bryant drew students in with her great energy and charm. The booth was covered with an assortment of books that the library owns. Students also enjoyed the stickers that they were provided for students.

The Honors College brought honors swag to the club fair, which consisted of honors sunglasses, highlighters and pens. The Honors College has a wide array of classes to choose from. The classes are also limited to a maximum of around 20 students. For more information about the Honors College at SCC, read our article here.

The Athletics Department brought in the mascot Dolphie and he was a huge hit. Dolphie break danced in front of the Honors College and Rooted Ministry. Dolphie brought the energy to the club fair as the members of the groups were amused by him. In the video above, Dolphie danced with Naomi A’au, a member of Rooted Ministry.


Rooted Campus Ministry is a club that started at the University of Washington that branched out to the SCC campus. Rooted Campus Ministry regularly shares faith with students. Although they are a non-denominational Christian club, everyone is welcome to participate in their club. They host bible talks at 12 p.m. every Wednesday in the PUB.

Students that walked around the perimeter may have noticed that students were playing some sort of games. These clubs were the Chess Club and the Mahjong Club, which both brought games for students to try out. The Mahjong Club meets at 4 p.m. every other Thursday in the quiet dining room.
