Something for every CMCer at Engagement Fair
Opportunities to give back, make friends, develop an interest, and—of course—have some fun were featured during CMC’s Campus Engagement Fair.
CMC first-year students gathered on Parents Field to sample the wide range of activities on display, as more than 60 student clubs and organizations, as well as CMC’s institutes, centers, labs, and campus services had a presence at the fair.
MJ Lindsey ’23 described their involvement with the Food Recovery Network as their “favorite thing to do as part of the CMC community.” Lindsey, who is president of the Food Recovery Network, was recruiting CMCers to join the organization, which takes leftover food from Collins Dining Hall to local shelters in Claremont and Pomona.
First-years also had the opportunity to learn more about resources available to them, including the Romero Success Coaches, who offer one-on-one peer counseling, focusing on time management, and healthy habits. Stuart McCallum ’25, an economics major who plays forward for the Stags basketball team, offered tips to first-years. Gleaning from his own efforts to seek balance between sport and academics, McCallum said, “Consistent bedtimes work for me.”
Carolina Auerbach ’25 summed up the value of joining a CMC club or organization. “I met my best friends through this club,” Auerbach said as she enrolled first-years in the Outdoor Initiative, a club devoted to providing free, weekly hiking, backpacking, and surfing trips to CMCers at all skill levels.
