Club Rush: bring the heat

At the beginning of every school year, Rancho Cucamonga High School hosts Club Rush in the quad. Club Rush is an event that takes place over the course of two days within the first month of school, and it serves as an opportunity for students to see what types of clubs are available for them to join.

Club Rush is an annual event that many students and staff members look forward to every year. This year, over 55 clubs were represented across the two days of Club Rush, giving opportunities for students to join and participate. Even though it was predicted to be very hot on this year’s Club Rush, nothing could diminish the excitement for this event. 

“We loved the energy that was in the room during Club Rush!” said Ms. Heather Landau, the Activities Director for RCHS. “Setting up in the MPR was incredibly smooth and we intend to host Club Rush in the MPR from now on. It was a lot more fun to have it in the MPR than outside.”

Typically Club Rush takes place in the quad out in the open, but this year the event took place in the MPR due to excessive heat during the scheduled days. This caused clubs that usually had the ability to advertise their club for two days during Club Rush were only given a slot on one of the two days this year due to limited space. This did not affect the turnout of Club Rush though, as many students could still attend the event and see the types of clubs that Rancho offers. 

“It was a really exciting experience!” Esther He, a junior and the executive manager of the RCHS Moon Club, said. “We all had such a great time introducing our club to others and crafting a community.” 

Landau oversaw the setup and organization of Club Rush in the MPR. On the other side of planning, club executives and members also helped plan Club Rush.

Seeing how these clubs join people together who want to form a community to craft unique experiences is important because it can help students who feel as if they don’t have a space to fit in or belong. Having a community to support and share your experiences with is always an amazing feeling, especially in such a unique time off figuring out everything is a heart-warming experience.

Even as aspects of Club Rush changed this year, like moving into the MPR and reducing space for clubs, the feeling of community from joining clubs stays the same.
