Clubs Unite!

There are several clubs on campus! It is always great to join as many clubs as possible. It is one great way to meet people and become more involved. Most of the clubs I am involved in is based on social justice but there are clubs related to one’s major, sports clubs and much more. On Saturday, for the first time, a few of the clubs from Saints Scholastica and from the University of Minnesota Duluth gathered together in the Benedictine commons for a potluck.

Some of the social justice clubs on campus are Latino Student Union (LSU), Black Student Union (BSU), International Club (IC), Asian Student Union (ASU), Oxfam, All abilities club, Muslim Student Association (MSA), Amnesty International, Deaf Culture Clubs, and much more.

The purpose of Social Justice club is to provide insight to injustices while also creating events on campus to educate and combat issues. Although all the social justice clubs vary in some way or the other, at the end of the day, they all have the same mission to work towards and achieve. For the first time, CSS board members from ASU and IC organized events with clubs from UMD.

I found this fascinating. It was a great way to meet several new people and new leaders who are willing to make a difference in this world. We started the evening off with introductions. We then had a dinner along with several games. Everyone had different wristband colors so that we could all be distributed into four groups. It was an amazing idea because it divided the students from people they may already know to those who they don’t.

In the future, I hope we continue to collaborate with members of the UMD community. We all live in the city of Duluth and therefore have a strong responsibility to educate and advocate for injustice. By getting to know each other and understanding each others’ missions, we can achieve them at a much faster rate.
