The University of Maine at Presque Isle will host its 16th annual Community and Club Fair on Thursday, Sept. 15, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Campus Center Multipurpose Room.
For the past 16 years, the University has kicked off the academic year with this event, which allows campus clubs and organizations to showcase and promote their groups to the student body and the community.
The event also gives area businesses an opportunity to participate in the event and introduce students to the local services and products available to them. Businesses can give product samples and coupons to students to promote their products and services. The Fair has the added benefit of giving local businesses a chance to meet UMPI students as prospective part-time employees.
Bonnie DeVaney, Director of Career Services and one of the promoters of the Fair said, “The Community and Club Fair is an exciting event and a great way to start the new academic year. This event gives our local businesses the opportunity to meet our new and returning students and to showcase what they have to offer our students. The Fair also gives students a chance to learn about the activities and service projects of campus organizations and decide if they want to become members. For the past 16 years, students and staff have enjoyed this fun and informal fair to learn more about the community and the campus.”
Members of the campus and community are invited to attend this event. The Fair is free to all, and there will be door prizes, product samples, coupons, and give-aways. For more information, contact Bonnie DeVaney at 768-9750 or Barbara.DeVaney@maine.edu.
