New clubs promote student interest

Kirkwood Community College offers many clubs and other activities on campus, yet some students feel they still do not have a place where they belong and can meet new people outside of classes.

While attempting to create a new club is an option, many students might be unaware of this. It is important that each and every student on campus can be involved in a club or other activity in which they feel included.

Not only should it be made more known that students are allowed to apply for the creation of a new club, students should also check out the more than 80 clubs already offered. They appeal to a wide variety of students based on major, hobbies and other interests.

Allowing students to have a say in what clubs are offered benefits Kirkwood, as students and faculty will not have to waste time and money setting up clubs with little interest and can better prepare for clubs with a lot of student interest.

College is full of choices from deciding on a major to what place to call home. Campus clubs and other activities should be no different. If students were more interested in developing a wider variety of clubs, they would have a greater potential to meet new people and make friends with similar interests. 

Giving students this potential will also lead to more time spent on campus, which improves the school overall. If students put more time into either starting a new club or bettering existing clubs, it will encourage more students to attend Kirkwood and be involved in these activities, as well as improve the overall school environment. 

Giving students the power of choice encourages them to make a difference while attending Kirkwood and for future students. 

Allowing a revision to old clubs and potentially adding a variety of new clubs to Kirkwood could be extremely beneficial to the productivity of the college, as well as improve the social atmosphere Kirkwood already has set in place.

Students should take advantage of their time at Kirkwood and either join an existing club or start a new club based on their interests.
