Club Week 2022

Pomona Club Week 2022 is August 15-19!

We are BACK in person but it will look a little different. We will host approximately 20 clubs per day on the WesternU (Pomona) esplanade from 12:00-1:00 p.m. and virtual sessions in the evenings from 5:00-6:00 p.m. 

Our incredible students are often involved in numerous clubs and want to give you the opportunity to interact with as many as possible.  Clubs can choose their preferred in-person tabling day, so please check below for the list of participating clubs by day. For the virtual event via Microsoft Teams, we’ve grouped and scheduled the clubs in meaningful categories so you hopefully have time to chat with numerous leaders to find the right fit for you.  

If you are interested in becoming a club leader, officer transitions occur each January, unless national bylaws require an alternate date. So get involved now, learn the ropes and then apply for a leadership position within your club.

 

How It’s Going to Work

  1. Check the schedule below
  2. Mark your calendar, be sure to note the date/time for the club(s) you are interested in.
  3. Visit a club table or Team site to talk with club leaders
  4. Get involved

Learn More & Win

An optional survey will go out following Fall Club Week to all “on-campus” students (students not currently on rotations). Your feedback will help us improve our events for the future. There will be MULTIPLE opportunities to win an a gift card for those that complete the survey.
