By: Jillian McSpirit Bergen Community College hosted ‘Club Day’ for upcoming and current students to explore what clubs Bergen offers and how to be a part of them. Upon walking around and speaking to various students and club members, there was a clear set of options that anyone can find interest in.
Theater club meets on Wednesdays from 12:30-1:30. They create four shows a year, all picked by their director. Interested students can audition for the play and then it will be determined by the director whether or not they are picked. They have fun events like the Life’s not Fair(e) event which is written and directed by Bergen exclusively.
The STEM club meets from 12:30-1:30 on Wednesdays as well. In STEM (science,technology,engineering and math) there are transfer credits offered, connections with jobs and internships as well. For fun, they offer movie and astronomy nights.
Other clubs like fashion club, for example, take Goodwill trips, talk about current trends and how they feel about them. They also talk about more important issues like conservation and environmental issues pertaining to fashion.
Computer club offers workshops weekly, in order to find exactly what members want to get out of the club. For example, if a student wants to maybe build a computer, they can host a workshop on that. The club- as well as all of those offered at Bergen allow for flexible schedules, fun events, and great connections in real world scenarios.
