Despite the many changes that have come with this fall semester, a new club has started meeting. The club, called Blended, focuses on multi-racial and multi-cultural students here on campus.
“Students are able to come to a place for every part of their identity and every part of themselves are welcomed, so they can be exactly who they are,” said Jalee Ortman, president of Blended and junior elementary education major.
The club is open to all Hornets and aims to be supportive to give resources, confidence and the encouragement students need to grow.
“Mixed race individuals or anybody can be surrounded by people that they can be comfortable around,” said Tom Torres, treasurer of Blended and senior psychology and sociology major. “Anyone is able to use their voice and work confidently whoever they are.”
This semester looks different in many ways due to the pandemic. Recognized Student Organization events are impacted a lot.
“COVID-19 prevents people form face to face meeting, but I think it could be a little easier to find a meeting place for everyone,” said Tayler Loudermill, secretary of Blended Club and senior social science education major. “Wherever you are, you can join the meeting on the phone, so there are some disadvantages and some advantages.”
Blended Club meetings are from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. every Monday on Zoom.
