Here at Fairfield University, there are many wonderful ways to meet new people as well as get involved in the campus community. With over 200 clubs and organizations, there is a lot to choose from. With the wide selection, clubs are bound to appeal to all different types of interests. 

New clubs pop up all of the time, and it’s a great way for students to bring to campus what they actually are interested in. Below are four of some newer clubs that showcase different types of interests for the Fairfield U student. 

Play Like A Girl 

Play Like A Girl, or PLAG, for short, is a nation-wide organization that has chapters across the country for college aged women. It encompasses health and wellness, networking and financial and charity work in the local community to better everyone. They host fitness events on and off campus at different places like Pure Barre and Soul Cycle, as well as resume building activities on campus. 

“It has allowed me to join a community of like-minded girls,” said club co-president Alyssa Thomas ‘22, “I am so grateful to have been able to be a part of an organization that empowers girls on campus to become leaders.” 

Book Club 

The Book Club here at Fairfield University is a great way to continue reading while balancing the busy college schedule. They meet biweekly to discuss the readings that the group decides to pick out each time. 

“We want to appeal to anyone who has a passion for learning and would like to share that passion with others”. 

It can be difficult to fit reading an unassigned book into your college schedule, especially if you enjoy it, so the Book Club might be a great option for you. 

Cryptocurrency Club 

The Cryptocurrency Club is another great club to gain an understanding of a very confusing topic, especially if you are into currencies and financial trading. Their purpose here at Fairfield is to educate fellow students on cryptocurrency terms and how the stock market and other external factors can impact crypto. 

They also offer a series of guest speakers, informative presentations and open discussion to allow its members to talk freely and learn more about the subject. For anyone interested in these topics or going into the business world, this is another excellent way to learn more about a hot topic in the world. 

Girl Up Fairfield 

Girl Up Fairfield is a very new club that was just recently introduced. There are organizations nationwide and Fairfield University just added a chapter here as well. It is a service oriented club that dedicates itself to raising awareness of the obstacles that girls face within the Global South when it comes to accessing primary and secondary education, which is a very big issue. 

The club also hosts events that serve as community builders and fundraisers to help with the larger Girl Up organization, which is what makes everything happen. 

If you are interested in service work and want to make a difference in the world, then this new club is an excellent choice to try out. 

There are so many different clubs and activities to be a part of, it can be extremely overwhelming to choose what you want to dedicate your time to. These four organizations are all excellent to be a part of, and you can go find out more about all of the other clubs and opportunities at the Club and Activities Fair on Feb. 11 in the Oak Room.
