With the school year officially started, now is the time to decide just how, and with whom, you want to spend your time. This semester, students will have their choice between two different org fairs, happening on the same exact date, at the same time. That should give everyone plenty of options for which clubs and organizations are best for them. The traditional Organization Fair will feature all Student Government Association-recognized clubs, ranging from the Musical Theatre Society of Emerson College to comedy troupe Chocolate Cake City. 

But right across campus, the Emerson College Alternative Org Fair will have its debut. Advertising itself as the “punk” version of the school-sanctioned fair, the Alternative Org Fair boasts campus groups that aren’t SGA recognized like ISIS Magazine and the Emerson Lions Spirit Squad. If you plan carefully, there should be time to visit each org. And yes, both will be giving out free swag.
