Imagine this: you attend Club Day, eager to get involved on campus. You’ve heard of some clubs here and there, but you want to consider all of your options before you commit to one. You enter the Outdoor Plaza (or the Indoor Plaza if it rains) and you’re greeted by chaos. Like, Black Friday at Walmart chaos.

E-board members from every club offered at Fordham Lincoln Center are seated at tables, like a circle of vultures with school spirit. They coax you with colorful posters, smiling faces and — most alluring of all — free stuff. Between the food, t-shirts and stickers, how can you possibly decide which lucky club will receive the honor of having your email on their sign-up list?

Have no fear — your guide to Club Day is here. Below you will find every club at Fordham Lincoln Center, summarized in 10 words or less.
