The students were there to discover the opportunities available now and in the future. The event was presented by the Office of Student Organizations and Service, which is part of the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership.

The attending student organizations were only about a third of the total number (more than 300) on campus. The entire list includes campus ministries, fraternities and sororities, national organizations, student-led department organizations and more.

Among the student organizations attending Wednesday, Jan. 25, included the MTSU E-Sports Club, Collegiate 100, Reformed University Fellowship, Tabletop Club and NAACP at MTSU.

“There are more church ministries, fraternities, sororities and a whole lot of organizations to see. There’s a good vibe going on — and a whole lot more socializing.”

Jackie Victory, director of Student Organizations and Service, called the event “a huge success” with the number of attending students “and 94 organizations showcasing themselves to new and current students.”
