MOUNT LAUREL, NJ—Even in a largely virtual climate, Rowan College at Burlington County (RCBC) is managing to keep students connected and engaged.
On Wednesday, September 23 at 1pm, RCBC will be holding a Facebook Town Hall covering student clubs and resources. RCBC’s Director of Student Life John Costa and student club leaders Kelsey Moss, Kye Binik and Harlowe McCarron are set to participate.
Kelsey Moss, a member of the National Student Leadership Society and the Human Services Club, will speak to how the clubs are tempering their desire to complete community service projects during a pandemic. During their virtual meetings, they engage members by playing games and doing icebreaker activities.
“We always welcome new members, regardless of major. We encourage people to bring their ideas because no idea is a bad idea. We still want people to participate, get to know each other and get involved,” Moss said.
Kye Bink, a Criminal Justice major and the Student Government Association’s Vice President of Community Service, is working on creating a Discord server in order to keep students connected and informed.
Film Club President Harlowe McCarron hosts biweekly film nights and discussions about film theory, film characteristics and the importance of politics in film. A Paralegal major, she’s also been involved in the Environmental Club, Marketing Club, RCBC Radio and serves as an SGA Senator.
In addition to the Facebook Town Hall, RCBC is set to host two Student Club and Resource Fairs via Webex that are free and open to the public. The first will be held on September 23 from 11am to 1pm and the second will take place on September 24 from 3pm to 4pm. During these virtual fairs, student organizations and college departments, including Tutoring and Financial Aid, will answer participant questions and provide relevant information.
“This is the event that kick-starts things. We’re going into it with an open mind and the ability to adapt to student schedules,” said Director of Student Life John Costa. “Our social media is key in that. We have some great events lined up for the fall, and it’s a constantly evolving schedule.”
