Freshmen Find Family in Clubs

A new school year starts with a brand new freshman class. Last year’s seniors have taken off, a new group of freshmen have entered the game, and everyone else has leveled up. With roles and responsibilities shaken up, it can be difficult for students to find their place amongst the crowd. Enter the club expo in its diverse, welcoming glory. We turn towards these organizations for community and belonging, and the expo introduces new and returning students to the worlds of possibilities.

Denmark offers an assortment of clubs, but with so many options, it can be a challenge to pinpoint what might be the right fit. During the club expo, students have an opportunity to explore the clubs in a centralized location. Due to Denmark’s extensive campus, “You can’t really find every single club throughout the place, so having all of them here is pretty fun,” freshman Rush Mahendran explains. The expo gave him the opportunity to get involved with HOSA, FBLA, MSA, and CS club. Sydney Cox, another freshman, is excited to be joining the crochet club this year. She wants to explore her interest in crafting pillows and other small creations. The expo inspires new students to engage with clubs.

The primary goal of this event is to connect students and help them find their home away from home. As said by Cox, clubs help newcomers “connect with other students who are already a part of Denmark and learn a little bit of Denmark through them.” As her first time at a public high school, she’s thrilled to learn new skills while simultaneously getting to know her school. Mahendran shared that this is his first time joining any clubs, and he wants to puzzle together  “how to do things in high school and have a fun high school life.”

Students with different backgrounds come here to connect with others around them, and by participating in this club extravaganza, they are doing just that. Clubs elevate the high school experience by uniting people who may have otherwise never met. Welcome Danes, you’ve reached your brand new family!

Life is a journey, and high school is the smelly gas station stop along the way. At this current stop, I fill my time with more books than you can count, playlists as long as school days, and ideas that I might one day turn into novels. I’m excited to add crafting articles to my list this year, and my dream is that they will inspire others to make the most of whatever spot they’re at.
