On September 19th, Jesuit hosted their annual club fair–an exciting time for students to sign up for clubs that interest them

Prior to this year, the club fair was hosted on Mary’s Way, but the location moved to Cronin Field, making more room for new clubs, and giving opportunities for students to choose between 80 clubs.

Tables were set up along the edge of the field, while students walked the track, learning about as many clubs as they could.

Finley Clark, a media student, interviewed some of her peers at the club fair. She first met up with Annie Duan ‘25 who is a leader of 3 different clubs and is returning to the club fair for her second year.

“This year is going to be a really busy year. I remember last year, we didn’t have [this big of setup]. This year we have 80 [different clubs] out here. I’m running 3 clubs: Green Team, Asian Student Union, and Fashion Club,” Duan said.

Paige Pierce ‘25 introduced a new club this year, European Studies.

“Our plan for [European Studies] is to bring the culture to the school. Because many people know that they’re either German or Polish but no one really knows the culture behind that. So our goal is to educate people about their own backgrounds and about ours, and let people share about their backgrounds as well. We will also cover topics like European festivals, customs, food, and dances,” Pierce said.

Lily Appleyard ‘25 signed up for 5 clubs.

“The atmosphere at the club fair was really positive. I thought a lot of the student body showed up to sign up for clubs. I was really excited about the turnout,” Appleyard said

About the Contributors
Finley Clark, Staff Writer
Finley Clark is currently a junior at Jesuit High School. She has always had an interest in media and journalism and is excited to finally pursue it in Mr. Falkner’s Fundamentals of Media class this year. She was originally drawn to this subject by growing up watching sports with her dad. Though she found the actual games interesting, she found herself intrigued by the commentary of the games and the production of them. However, as years have gone by, though there is still that interest in sports, she wants to explore this topic in a broader view. For example, in recent years Finley has been interested in fashion, so much that she is a leader of Jesuit's very own Fashion Club which she hopes to integrate into her work with Jesuit Media.  Finley was born in Scottsdale Arizona, however, the majority of her early childhood years were spent in Bend, Oregon. In the second grade, she moved to Portland and has been here since. Outside of Jesuit Finley enjoys spending time with her friends and family, skiing, playing sports, discovering and listening to new music, traveling, reading, and hanging out with her pets. Following high school, Finley hopes to attend college pursuing a degree in media and journalism.
