Veteran and newcomer clubs intertwine

Every year, student-led clubs at Diamond Bar High School, each advocating for a different cause, work their hardest to campaign to their peers. From interest-based clubs like Brahma Cinematics Club, to service clubs like Key Club, to competitive ones such as the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), DBHS provides a wide array of clubs suitable for almost anyone.

Seniors Melody Zhang and Zoe Guillen have participated in club rush for the past two years as officers representing their respective clubs. 

“I was a part of club rush last year for FBLA,” said Zhang, FBLA’s President of Internal Affairs. “This year, we set up a trifold, some club paper posters, competition awards and an Instagram polaroid board.” 

The trifold showcased exciting photos from competitions and social events, and detailed information about what FBLA had to offer.

On the other hand, Guillen worked with Brahma Cinematics as its Director of Photography/Videography. 

Using a more hands on approach, Brahma Cinematics chose to promote themselves at club rush by showcasing past video projects and equipment, including a trifold setup of past club activities. 

Meanwhile, Key Club implemented a slightly different tactic in order to appeal to DBHS students. Senior Katelyn Thai, Key Club’s Division Vice President, explained the logic behind their setup. 

“The other officers and I used a big trifold with the main information on what our club is about, two smaller poster boards to walk around with and a poster frame for members new and old to take photos in,” Thai said.“We also used spirit gear such as red flower crowns, bandanas, prompoms, and stickers [to make ourselves stand out].” 

Social media was also another vital factor in the communication between clubs and potential members. Officers came up with different ways to promote their clubs through that medium.

“We promoted club rush on our Instagram account (fbla.dbhs), posting pictures of new members with our instagram polaroid board,” Zhang said. “We also plan to roll out a FAQ post on the last day of club rush that consists of top questions asked from our initial interest form.” 

Brahma Cinematics, on the contrary, implemented a slightly different method of communication, using a different platform. 

“We do promote on Instagram…and we get a bit of activity; however, we mainly keep our club updated through Discord,” Guillen said. 

Key Club was the exception; already being a large club, they chose not to promote on social media this year. 

“I find social media pretty useful when wanting to reach the follower platform, but it is more convenient to reach those who may not have social media through word instead,” Thai said.  “Our officers did a very good job making Key Club known during club rush, so not promoting on social media was not a big problem at all.” 

Officers of each and every club worked hard to ensure the smooth sailing of club rush, and through these two tumultuous weeks, students have been provided with countless opportunities to get involved thanks to their efforts.
