On Friday, September 8, Miron Student Center Operations and Event Management hosted a successful Kean Day event from 12 - 4 p.m. Students were in their complimentary “Kean Day” T-shirts as they explored numerous groups and participated in fun activities.

Miron Student Center (MSC) Plaza and Cougar Walk were filled with tables representing many of the different organizations and programs within the university. During this time, students were able to talk to the presidents and members of the organizations that interested them the most. Some of the organizations and clubs that could be found tabling at Kean Day include:

  • Jumpstart
  • Environmental Alliance Club
  • Kean Dance Theatre, Center for Advising
  • Center for Advising, Persistence and Success (CAPS)
  • Campus Ministry

There were so many organizations lined up along Cougar Walk talking to students about their programs and values. Students could also learn more about Greek letter organizations as there were many fraternaties and sororities present and ready to highlight their best qualities.

As the event continued, students were able to enjoy food from the following places:

  • The Chippery
  • Rita’s Italian Ice
  • Mighty Quinn’s Barbeque

Some students shared their reasons for attending Kean Day.

“I’m in Jumpstart already and I'm looking forward to LASO," said Maite Lluberes, a criminal justice major at Kean.

Psychology and Psychiatric Rehabilitation Major, Aamillya Joseph, expressed that her experience at Kean Day was great.

"I want to be more involved on campus to build up my resume ... also build connections," said Joseph.

In other exciting news, the Kean Cheerleader Club was also presented during Kean Day. The club members proudly represented Kean and encouraged all to join. Vice President of the Kean Cheerleader Club, Danielle Felix, said that the club is the first cheer organization at Kean since 2009.

“We get a lot of love from multiple people around campus and that’s very appreciated," said Felix. "We look forward to continuing this program and to continue showing out at football and basketball games and hopefully other sports to come."

Kean Day was an absolute success, the campus buzzed with the vibrancy of Kean's cougar spirit. Kean University encourages students to continue to learn about the resources, organizations, and clubs on campus, these things contribute to a wonderful college experience.
