6 underrated clubs to join this school year

As we’ve started the new semester, it’s that time of the school year to begin getting involved. Whether that be with your organizations from last year or maybe you want to try a new one, Ohio University has over 550 campus clubs to choose from. Although the Involvement Fair has been a bit of a bust these past few years due to COVID-19 and rainy weather, that shouldn’t deter you from exploring all the amazing options student organizations have to offer. That’s why we’re here to spotlight six underrated clubs that you should get involved with this semester.

F.A.C.E.S. Modeling

If you’ve ever wanted to get in front of a camera and show off your style, Fascinating Alluring Chic Exciting Sensing, or F.A.C.E.S., Modeling is for you. With a focus on diversity, body positivity and creativity, the organization’s goal is to unite students and the OU community while also teaching basic modeling techniques. The group collaborates with other campus clubs, holds workshops and puts on fashion shows.

OU Vibrations

Get your body moving with the dance organization OU Vibrations. The club does different kinds of choreography and focuses on small group routines, and all levels of dance are welcome. Tryouts are held at the beginning of Fall Semester, and the group works towards its show in the spring. Some activities that the group does are fundraisers, performance group auditions and a spring show.

Sphere Magazine

Known as OU’s oldest and only undergraduate literary magazine, Sphere is a great opportunity if you enjoy writing, editing and visual art. It publishes works from fiction to nonfiction as well as poetry and art. Not only does Sphere publish online, but it also does an imprint version of the journal as well. Submissions are taken in the fall before being published in print every spring.

Bobcats Spikeball

Have some fun and enjoy the outdoors with this fairly new organization. Started, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the club was founded as a way to meet new people and socialize while things were shut down and classes were online. The group holds its own games and travels to tournaments. Whether you’re a laidback spikeball player or more competitive, Bobcats Spikeball can be the perfect match for you.

Alden Book Club

Want a fairly low commitment club to join? Do you enjoy reading and talking about literature with other people? Then Alden Book Club is for you. Another new organization to campus, Alden Book Club meets once a month for discussions on different types of books. Held in Alden Library’s Friends of the Library Room on the third floor in room 318, this organization is a great option for those that also love to hear other people’s thoughts on literary work.

Coffee Club

Calling all coffee lovers. The Coffee Club is the newest organization on the list after just forming this year. The group gets coffee together weekly to try out new drinks from different cafes both on-campus and off-campus. The club hopes to bring coffee lovers together by socializing over a shared interest and creating a social media influence to show off the amazing drinks Athens offers.
