This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to sing with the Acappella club at Voices in Concert. The event was a fundraiser for the QVCC Foundation and also Killingly High School. The show was packed with talented performers from our community. The Foundation also held a silent auction which helped to raise even more money for student scholarships at QVCC. One of the reasons that I love QVCC so much is the amazing support that we receive from our community and Saturday was another great example of that, over 800 people showed up to support the event.
I have been involved in different groups on campus since I started here at QV but this is my first semester with the Acappella club. I have really enjoyed singing with this group and have been able to learn a lot. Getting involved on campus is a great way to make the most of your time at QVCC. While you may not get the same experience as a 4 year school because students don’t live on campus, getting involved in clubs and other student groups gives you a chance to meet new people and try different things that you may not have done before. I have been singing my whole life but I have never sang acappella before. Even though it’s my last semester I am still glad that I was able to join this group and try something new.
If you haven’t joined a club on campus yet, you should check out our club list and find a group that interests you! We have many groups meeting regularly and we are always adding to the list. Not seeing something that interests you? Start your own club! It’s really easy to do and I’m sure you will find others on campus who are interested in joining. All you have to do is find the president and treasurer of the club and ask a faculty or staff member to be your club advisor. Once you have those people, fill out the club form, come to a Student Government meeting and you’re official! Get involved and make the most of your college experience here at QVCC!
