The Spring Semester 2022 has been nothing short of eventful, and what better way to bring it to a close than bringing all clubs together. Last week, the Student Affairs Department hosted Clubs Week, which took place from March 30 to April 1. The purpose of the event was to encourage the inter-mingling of clubs, creation of awareness on what different clubs are about, as well as being a recruitment drive for the clubs.
Some of the clubs that were featured included: AIESEC, SADS, Speak-Up, Hult Prize, Film Club, among many others. The excitement was at an all-time high as this was the first ever Clubs Week event since the onset of the pandemic in March 2020.
It was amazing to see the revival of clubs like the Visual Arts Club as well as USIU Radio which has been making notable steps to restore its former glory.
Attendees got to see performances from upcoming artists like Benaia, courtesy of the Music Club. The International Youth Fellowship (IYF) encouraged us to participate in the spicy food challenge, which was no walk in the park for those who do not enjoy spicy food. The film trivia by the Film Club brought back our love for films, and we could not be happier.
The events ended with a bang as we all got to take part in a team building seminar on Friday which was conducted by Mr. Chris Ayuoyi.
We had different presentations from the Placement and Career Services by Dr. Edgar Githua and Ms. Lucy Kung’u from the Counseling Department. We also had a session facilitated by Centonomy, which touched on the management of personal finances.
It was such an honor to have the eminent Centonomy which is a financial literacy institution that teaches individuals about management of their personal finances being brought to enlighten the student body.
