UMW Fall Semester Club Carnival Gets Students Involved

Students meet at the Club Carnival

Hundreds of UMW students gathered on Ball Circle on Wednesday, Aug. 29 for the fall semester Club Carnival. Club Carnival is held at the beginning of the new semester as a way for students to get together and learn how they can get involved.

Leaders and members from each club braved the heat and sun to educate their peers about their group, showcase their clubs accomplishments and recruit new members.

With roughly 120 active clubs and organizations on campus there are plenty of options for students to volunteer with an issue they care about, further their studies, play sports or just meet with peers who have similar interests. A full list of the clubs offered at UMW, from biology and politics to Latin dancing and scuba diving, can be found at
Local organizations such as the Rappahannock Emergency Services also attended the club fair to give students opportunities to get involved in their community outside of campus. Even some downtown Fredericksburg favorites like Sammy T’s made an appearance to give out free samples and coupons.
