Humber Students’ Federation full list of clubs for this semester isn’t finalized, Ahmed Tahir, Vice President of Student Life at North campus said there’s lots this year.

“Even when I’m not talking about clubs, I try to find a way to bring them up somehow,” he said.

Of 20 clubs signed up, 10 are new.

“There’s some this year that I think are really going to be popular. One’s called the Theatrical Society, which is improv-based plus scene work, and people are always asking for that kind of club,” said Tahir.

There’s also going to be a Muslim Student Association, Greater Toronto Area Paranormal Society, Next Generation Music Club and Energize the Earth to build solar panels.

Engineering-based clubs will build 3D printers and create tools for people with disabilities.”

A new policy is that part-time students and HSF staff can start and join clubs this year, said Tahir.

One returning club is the unplugged gaming group Table Tops.

“We play board games, card games and collectible card games… Anyone is welcome regardless of game preference or skill,” said Table Tops President Andy Caskanette.

Aboriginal Student’s Circle, Christian fellowship Embassy, and Beyond the Rainbow are returning.

Beyond the Rainbow aims to provide a safe, inclusive, friendly and confidential environment for members of the LGBTQ community.

“We discuss LGBTQ+ related issues in media, personal issues, such as coming out, homophobia, and just build a community at school for LGBTQ+ students and allies,” said club marketer Ferdinand Ngo.
