The Club Fair Is On The Green Today

Friday, September 6th, 2013


Where: Case Green
When: 3:30pm

You’ve already seen sun-soaked bodies lay back, the occasional frisbee circle, and maybe some drunk, late-night wiffle ball (If you’re lucky.) go down on Case Green, but today’s a different scene. Today all 80 student-run clubs (Not really, but kinda.) will be setting up camp along the walkway, trying to car salesman any hesitant freshman to hand over their pristinely inboxed email account to soon be peppered by a bit of useful weekly information from each and every club on campus. Or, littered with bitter alumni, still checking their Skidmore email accounts and aggressively replying all to ask “Can I Please Be Taken Off This Email List! I DONT GO HERE ANYMORE!.” And while I’m a sucker for chain mail as much as the next guy, it’s really fucking annoying. But I digress.

The Club Fair’s good. Get your name out there, see more faces than usual, and listen as WSPN, Lively Lucy’s, and SEC compete for who can blast the most bombastic Indie Pop on the green. Pulse will be banging on garbage, like always. A club or two may have some baked goods, free stickers, etc. A horse might be there. And, for the first time ever, live music will be playing the stage. Skidmore’s resident funk-rock fusion big band, Bo Peep and The Funk Sheep , will start things off at 3:30pm, followed by DJ’s Anonymous, a collection of on campus DJ’s, who I hope wear masks, and I’m told are better than your friend from High School who made that dope track off Garageband, a DJ app, and mad DatPiff instrumental tapes, but that remains to be seen.

Enjoy the sun, drink a lot of water out of a real metal (or plastic) water bottle, say hi to people, and make sure you remember how many letters were cut off your last name for you Skidmore email address.

See you there.

Brace Yourselves for the Club Fair

Thursday, January 24th, 2013


Tomorrow is the Club Fair, your chance to feign interest in your peers’ interests and maybe see a horse take a dump or something. It’s pretty much the same every semester, but this time it’s been moved to the second floor of D-Hall for some reason.

Once again, I urge you all to sign up a friend (or Stephen Yell) for as many clubs as possible. Anime Club? Why the fuck not! Model EU? Sure! The possibilities are limitless.

Friday January 25, 3-5pm @ D-Hall second floor

Club Fair Rears Its Head Once More

Friday, September 7th, 2012

These guys look like they could be some cool new friends

Today is the annual club fair, where Skidmore students eat free candy and agree to receive emails they will never read. Are you interested in meeting Jewish girls and eating tzimmes on Friday nights? Join Hillel! Are you funny and like attention? Check out the many sketch/improv comedy troupes! Do you enjoy being naked? Try Outing Club! Whatever your interests, Skidmore has the club for you. Alright, college!

Also, here’s a great prank: take one person (for example, Stephen Yell) and sign him or her up for as many clubs as you possibly can. They will hate you and it will be really funny.

Friday, September 7, on Case Green @ 3-5pm

The Club Fair Returns

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

Oh shit, someone's signing up for SEC!

This Friday, January 27, the Club Fair will once again take over the inside of Case from 3:30 to 5pm, where you will be coerced into signing up for clubs you don’t really care about by people you barely know/cute girls. You will also inevitably shove pounds of free candy into your face.

Friday, 3:30 – 5pm @ Case Center

Club Fair In Case Center

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

St. Francis HS History Club 2009

The best way to make friends at college is to stand outside of parties bumming cigarettes to strangers, the second best way to make friends in college is to join clubs.  Those of you with compelling moral or health reasons to avoid tossing cancer sticks around will be happy to know that the Spring Semester Club Fair is this Friday in Case Center from 3-5pm.
