The Student Information Services (SIS) Fair was held on Sunday Jan. 25 from 3-5 p.m. in the CUB multipurpose room. This fair is held at the beginning of each semester to help boost students’ awareness about the different groups that both the campus and Shippensburg township have to offer.
Students were able to walk up and down rows of tables, each with its own group presenting information on what the organization does and encouraging students to participate in future events.
Ann Wendle, the interim assistant director of Student Group Services and Leadership Development, coordinated the event, which has grown from only having about 30 groups to having 77 groups in attendance, as of Sunday.
“The fair is for any organization that has any kind of student involvement, meaning that it doesn’t have to be recognized by Student Senate to be represented here,” Wendle explained. This fair had 77 groups total, ranging anywhere from fraternities and sororities to the Quidditch team and Homecoming committee.
“During the fair in the fall semester, more groups from the Shippensburg community are in attendance,” Wendle added. The event tries to help the students get involved in the school as well as the community of Shippensburg.
Overall, the SIS Fair provided a way for the whole Shippensburg community to come together and spread awareness of all the different groups and activities that are offered.
