Hundreds of students attended this year’s Unity Day on Oct. 23 at Ocean campus Amphitheatre behind the Wellness Center.

The Associated Students and the Inter Club Council organized the event. It’s a day when students come together to explore all the different clubs on campus and sign up for as many as they’d like.

This year’s event began in the early morning with San Francisco’s famous fog migrating over campus.

KCSF Radio provided upbeat music with an impressive sound system and kept the momentum going throughout the event as students traveled table to table.

Many clubs attempted to attract students with unique presentations like the Student Association of Alchemy Club’s interactive dry ice demonstration, the Gamers Gathering Club’s dual television gaming zone and the Biotech Club’s hands-on experiments.

Some clubs gave engaging gifts like the Muslim Student Association’s Quran softcover holy books translated in both English and Spanish.

Other clubs performed for the attendees like the Japanese Culture Club’s taiko drummers, the City College cheerleaders and personal poetry was read by the Poetry Club.
