Last Friday, Simon's Rock hosted its club fair to introduce its students to what their extracurricular options are this semester. The Weekly Cad went around and asked each club to write a pitch for us, in case any students weren't able to come. This is what the club leaders said:
The Robotics Club is for anyone who is interested in making robotics or understanding the fundamentals of it. We plan on creating structures, whether it is basic or advanced. We might in the future compete in competitions. Prutha and Kacey, founders of the club, have been competing for several years and have a lot of experience in it. We might start off with simple projects to help around campus. Help us mold this club into something you might want to be apart of.
CEI (Council for Equity and Inclusion)
CEI handles marginalization on campus through meetings, events, symposiums, bias response, and more. Come to meetings or reach out!

A fun, free place to lose control and let it all go. --With a small production for friends and fam at the end of the semester. We are so excited to have fun with you guys!!
Student Stages puts on a musical every year and this year we’re doing Mamma Mia and we want you! We’re looking for actors, techies, crew and more. It’s a super low-pressure environment where we have fun with other theater people!
You guessed it! O.R.C.A stands for Organizing Rockers for Civic Action. We love being aware of what is happening in the world of politics and encourage the same enthusiasm among our peers. On a serious note, civic engagement is and always will be important no matter how much you lack faith in the electoral college. We believe in voting! We enjoy taking off-campus trips to canvas for local candidates! We love hosting workshops where we bore you by talking about the government and how it works! Most importantly, in my very humble opinion, we pre-register Rockers to vote. The 2020 presidential election is important (as well as all of the others). So, join O.R.C.A today!
(I could not get a definite answer about what exactly Uncertainty Club was. To my knowledge, they've already sent out an mail with the time and place of club meeting to their members. They were, at least, certain about that).
