Students’ Union president Jarrett Henry plans to introduce his ‘Club Matchmaker’ quiz during clubs week, which takes place in MacHall from Sept. 15–19.
Club Matchmaker is a short, multiple choice quiz that will be in the SU president’s September email to students next week. Students can answer five questions to help them decide which SU clubs best suit their interests.
Henry says Club Matchmaker will make clubs week easier for students to absorb.
“It’s unrealistic to expect them to take the time to scroll through and read all 316 club descriptions,” Henry said.
Henry ran with Club Matchmaker as part of his platform in the 2014 SU election.
The quiz questions focus on program of study, interests, hobbies, activism, culture and religion. Students check off answers that apply to them for each question. The more options a student checks off, the more club options are generated.
“We wanted a simplified way to bridge the gap between students and clubs,” Henry said.
