Join the club

Club fever is in the air – or coming to the atrium at least.

Next week from Sept. 21 to 25 at 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the University Community Centre atrium, Western's 110 clubs will have the opportunity to display their wares.

Students will have a chance to learn more about what university has to offer, meet with other students who share their interests and join any club they find interesting.

Clubs participating in this year's Clubs week range from the wild to the athletic, from the Royal Order of Water Buffalos to the Billiards Society, to the political or cultural, such as the Charity Alliance Against Poverty or the Multicultural Leadership Club.

"Clubs week is in place to promote the USC club system," said Pete Hill, VP-campus issues for the University Student's Council.

Hill added Clubs week allows clubs to get the exposure they need in order to present themselves to interested students.

Finding a way

On Monday the United Way kicks off its annual fundraising campaign throughout London. The 10-week campaign raises awareness of the work United Way performs while it turns to the city of London for contributions to help continue this work.

Kris Blainey, communications coordinator for the United Way of London, invited both students and employees of the university to make donations. "Western has always been an active participant in raising funds for the campaign."

All students are invited to visit the "Images of Hope" exhibit which will feature the artwork of some of London's top photographers. These artists volunteered their time to capture images of the people whose lives were helped by the United Way. The exhibit will be on display in the Great Hall Sept. 24. Anyone seeking more information can contact the United Way at 438-1721.
