Every Tuesday night, the Wilkinson Student Center hosts a variety of BYUSA clubs during its weekly Clubs Night. However, Tuesday, March 19, was not a typical Clubs Night. The WSC Ballroom and Garden Court were transformed as various clubs prepared for the annual Clubs Showcase. 

BYUSA clubs encourage students to participate in their interests, expand their talents and make connections with other students. Not only are clubs a source of fun, but they also provide many service-oriented opportunities. The Clubs Showcase honored the way clubs contribute to the university. 

Throughout the night, students explored different clubs and interacted with displays. Clubs performed during the showcase and there were opportunities for students to win prizes and enjoy free pizza. Those interested in getting involved can find more information on the BYUSA Clubs Instagram account.

Thursday, March 14 marked the end of the two-week-long student campaign, Choose2Give. For the campaign, BYU Student Alumni encouraged current students to donate money to fund a BYU education for others in need. 

In addition to helping fund scholarships for students in need, the campaign empowered BYU students to give back and serve throughout their lives.

Choose2Give is an annual campaign that collects donations online or through events and activities hosted by BYU colleges. This year, BYU Dining partnered with the Student Alumni Association to make a mural made up of more than 1,900 cupcakes. The Marriott School of Business and the College of Life Sciences hosted pickleball and volleyball tournaments. There were also online and social media competitions, as well as shows and treats to encourage donations.
