The University of Minnesota boasts over a thousand student groups. Student groups on campus cover an array of categories ranging from academic and career-based student groups to athletic, cultural, political, and leisure-based student groups. It’s a great way to meet new people, develop soft skills not normally taught in classrooms, advocate or support a cause, or just keep yourself busy. I happen to be the president of a student group, and I would like to introduce you to my student group: the Juggling Club.
Fun fact: the University of Minnesota Juggling Club is the first juggling club in Minnesota! It is also one of the oldest student groups at the University of Minnesota.
The Juggling Club is pretty straightforward: we juggle. You most certainly do not have to know how to juggle to join it; we would be more than happy to teach you to juggle! Speaking of joining the Juggling Club, all you need to do to join is show up! The Club meets on Tuesdays and Fridays from 4 to 6 pm. We juggle outside when the weather is nice, but retreat indoors when unforgiving winter prevails.
I like the Juggling Club a lot for a few reasons. Firstly, I enjoy juggling a lot (no brainer there). Secondly, it’s an incredible way to relax and destress amidst classes, assignments, and stress; your mind really clears out when you start juggling them. Thirdly, we enjoy the attention from people passing by and we always put a smile to their faces. And ours. Ever seen an unhappy juggler?
If you do end up coming to the University of Minnesota, I highly encourage you to check out the Juggling Club. Swing by to a couple of Juggling Club meetings. If you can’t juggle, we’ll teach you how to juggle. And we can teach you to juggle in only 10 minutes, especially if you proclaim yourself to be “uncoordinated”. Above all, do explore different student groups on campus and see what you like. There are a thousand student groups on campus, there’s no way you won’t find one that you’ll like.
