The Black Student Union, Delight, Kickline Tap Team, and many more are doing things differently with their clubs this fall semester to ensure their status on campus.
Most of the clubs are doing meetings via Zoom, or online, in general. The Kickline Tap team at IU South Bend have been meeting throughout the summer via zoom to work on their dancing to get ready for their Christmas concert. They will start meetings again on August 31.
“Our meetings will have to be online now since the pandemic. Also, we may not have any events this semester because we do not want to have a large group of students to congregate in the same environment,” said President of Black Student Union, Carmen Chambliss.
The BSU will meet twice a month via Zoom, they are still figuring out dates at this time.
Delight, will be doing a hybrid approach to their meetings this semester.
“In-person meetings with masks and social distancing off campus and broadcasting our meetings on zoom for members who do not feel comfortable meeting in-person,” said Coordinator of Delight at IU South Bend, Annie Heiter.
At this time it has been hard for clubs to gain new members because they are meeting online. However, there is a full list of clubs on the Titan Atlas website. There, students who are interested in the clubs can contact the clubs via email, find online events and stay updated with club information.
While this semester brings new challenges, many IU South Bend clubs are keeping students social and safe.
