PLS Saturdays at Sam

September 25, 2021

Heather Barodi, Emma Anderson, Erin Juarez, and I were eager to begin our recruitment for the Pre-Law Society at Saturdays at Sam. This event is held in the Lowman Student Center mall area where almost all 250 organizations at Sam attended. Each organization had their own table and were ready to teach students more about what their organization consisted of. Our table had displayed a Pre- Law Society shirt, a pamphlet, and some sweet treats!

Although the turn out was not great, we tried our best to be as engaging and informative in describing what the Pre- Law Society has to offer. We informed students about past and future events and opportunities we have. While we were able to teach others, we also expanded our knowledge on what other organizations are doing on campus.

Towards the end of the event, we had a special guest come. My dog, Pupito, made an appearance that attracted students and other organizations to our table. It was a great way to finish off Saturdays at Sam with smiles on each volunteers face and a furry friend helping recruit.
