Students Promote Clubs during Activities Fair
Wentworth students spent a sunny afternoon on the quad promoting student organizations at this year’s Activities Fair.
Representatives from more than 30 student groups and campus offices – including multicultural, athletic, academic, community service, professional, and special interest organizations – spoke with fellow students about the variety of ways to get involved on campus.
Kevin Barrett, BSCN ’14, said that joining the Association of IT Professionals (AITP) allowed him to learn more about his field. “You get to define your own interests and work on whatever project you want, as opposed to a classroom.”
Members of Wentworth’s AITP recently developed an app for Boston’s Museum of Science that allows visitors to learn more about the museum and their plan to work on a number of different projects this year.
“The activities fair is a benefit to students because it puts everything into a single easy-to-access space where they can find organizations they may be interested in,” said Eric Crumrine, a program advisor at Wentworth. “It’s a great opportunity for students to get involved with the Wentworth community, find a social outlet, or further their interest about a particular field of study.”
