This semester, the Get Involved Fair will be held on Tuesday, September 20, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will feature over 150 student organizations, fraternities, sororities, community partners, Stockton offices, athletic organizations, and intramurals. In addition to that, new students will find Admissions Ambassadors, TALONS, and RAs at the fair and will be able to ask questions about how they can be part of those programs. Every semester, the fair gives students the opportunity to discover various organizations and opportunities.
The event will be held in The Campus Center’s Grand Hallway, as well as wings A through J of the spine. The Grand Hallway will solely host Stockton’s community partners, whereas the spine will feature student organizations. New and old organizations that are interested in participating in the fair can register for the fair on Stockton’s Osprey Hub; however, due to the large number of organizations that will be present, space will be limited and will be offered on a first-come, first serve basis. Thus, organizations are encouraged to register in time and registrations will continue to be accepted until September 13, 2022.
This semester, The Office of Student Development will play a role in putting together the Get Involved Fair. According to Lauren Wilson, an Assistant Director of the Office of Student Development who doubles as the fair’s organizer for the Fall 2022 semester, “The Office of Student Development will be partnering with the Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning to reach out to various local organizations outside Stockton that have volunteer opportunities for students interested in volunteering to get involved.”
Lauren further added that there will be a 360 photo booth at the C/D Atrium and that free popcorn will be provided at the fair courtesy of the Office of Student Development. She also emphasized the importance of student involvement at Stockton and highlighted that a major benefit of involvement is that it makes students feel a sense of belonging, and it makes them look attractive to potential employers in the future.
