“It was a success. It was a beautiful thing because the student population as a whole was embraced,” said Denise Whisenhunt, dean of Student Affairs.

During the week of Aug. 29, the Associated Student Government,ASG, presented Club Rush 2011, a week-long event where all the clubs and organizations that represent City College collaborate with one task in mind; to inform and embrace their fellow peers.

“Club Rush was well organized. It was good to see the students engaging into their campus in only the second week of the fall semester,” said Whisenhunt.

Some of the festivities included live bands, food carts and face painting tables. There were about 30 clubs and organizations that were participants in Club Rush 2011. Information boards and tables were set up to give students more information about the organizations.

Inter Club Council, a group within ASG, is responsible for the unification of all the clubs and organizations that represent City College. ICC is also responsible for relaying ASG information throughout the campus, help students form clubs, and to get more students involved into campus-based activities.

President of ICC Trung Nguyen, said that the event had overall a good turnout but there was definitely room for improvement.

Nguyen also said that he and Public Events Coordinator, Angel Henderson, and Public Relations Officer, Juan Carlos Jimenez Cruz, together plan on presenting another week-long event similar to Club Rush next semester.

“Everything was well organized,” said Gail Rodriguez, assistant dean of Student Affairs. “Angel, Trung, Juan-Carlos, and the whole ASG-ICC staff put in a lot of time and effort on making Club Rush a success”.

ASG and ICC both work hard to promote school-related programs and activities here at City College.

“It feels great. Our Executive Team and ASG Council are so powerful; it is an honor to work with them,” said Danielle Coulter, President of ASG. “I enjoy being in a position where I can help them do their jobs as liaisons to student issues.  I support them,

and our students, in any endeavor.  It is a pleasure to be a part of a team that works so hard for students they may never meet face to face.”
