Welcome Back! + Game Night

We started off the new semester with a game night to spend some time together and get to know new members. We played Twister, Heads Up!, and Cards Against Humanity (even though it’s the opposite of what our organization stands for).

For anyone who may be new to Rotaract, we hold meetings every other Wednesday at 8pm and dues are $25/year or $15/semester. Membership requirements each semester are simple: 4 meetings, 2 service events, and 2 social events.

We’re very excited for the rest of the semester. In the spring, we host our annual Philly Factor showcase. This year we are partnering with a Rotaract Club in Bolivia to support a Bolivian children’s school by funding a scholarship in our name for students who would otherwise lack access to education.

Other projects we have planned include: St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen, Transplant House with the College Diabetes Network, Philly Reads’ Reading Olympics, mentoring Breakthrough students, and intraclub mentor/mentee pairings.
