Four underrated organizations on campus

Cornhole is a classic game growing in popularity. It is great for barbeques, tailgate parties and any other outdoor fun. Just pick out a bean bag and toss!

OSU has many organizations that encourage involvement among the student body; here are four of those organizations  everyone should know about:

1. Juggling Club

The Juggling Club is an organization that celebrates community through a shared hobby: juggling. The Juggling Club’s goal is to encourage new friendships and bring people joy through the form of a silly skill. No, one doesn’t need to know how to juggle to become a member; one simply must be willing to learn. The club meets every other Thursday at 9 p.m. in the Student Union, and everyone is welcome.

2. Green Greeks

Green Greeks is a new organization on campus. Since Greek Life does not have eco-representatives nor the same sustainability policies in place like on-campus life, the Green Greeks have made it their responsibility to encourage eco-friendly habits in the Greek neighborhood through community and event planning. The club meets every Tuesday at 4:30 p.m., and the location varies.

3. Beta Alpha Chi

Beta Alpha Chi is an organization that focuses on educating students on how to properly care for animals as well as advocate for the welfare of animals. Any full-time undergraduate or graduate student with a 2.0 GPA is eligible to join. 

4. Cornhole Club

Cornhole is a unique sport, and the Cornhole Club celebrates that.

Jager Pifer, a biosystems and agricultural engineering freshman and president of the Cornhole Club absolutely loves their club and explained why their club is great for anyone. 

“I believe the Cornhole Club is great because cornhole is one of the fastest growing sports in the world right now. Anybody can play and anybody can win, regardless of who you are or your athletic ability,” Pifer said. 

Pifer also said that cornhole is one of few club sports that has the chance to be featured on ESPN. The club usually meets weekly at the Stillwater Area Sports Association, and anyone is welcome to join.
