New members wanted: Student groups court Hopkins newcomers at annual Student Involvement Fair

At Johns Hopkins University, there's a club for almost anybody.

From the Hopkins Honeybees—a group that educates the community about the environmental necessity of bees—to the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu team and the Cubing Association (for Rubik's Cube masters), it's easy for students to find their niche.

The difficult part is choosing which one (two, three, or maybe even four) to join.

On Friday, Hopkins organizations gathered at the O'Connor Recreation Center for the seventh annual Student Involvement Fair, aiming to recruit new members. The fair, hosted by Student Leadership and Involvement, included representatives from an estimated 240 of JHU's more than 300 undergraduate student organizations.

"The fair is a great way for freshman to get a flavor of campus life," said Phoebe Gennardo, a member of the Buttered Niblets, a campus improv comedy group. "Last year, I signed up to audition for the Buttered Niblets at the fair, and because of that I met some of my favorite people on campus."
