Representatives from the 70+ clubs and organizations that call Prep home gathered this week in our Warren Street Plaza to welcome and recruit their peers at the annual Activities Fair. Each year, this two-day event highlights the diversity of student life at Saint Peter’s Prep.
Every activity on our growing student-run roster is designed to complement and enhance the classroom experience; they are “co-curricular,” not extracurricular.
And this week’s strong showing highlighted all the ways Prep men individually contribute to our thriving campus—with interests spanning the arts, the stock market, the sciences, sports, and more.
Tuesday allowed the freshman Class of 2027 and transfer students the first opportunity to visit the fair as they begin their journeys here at Grand & Warren. Wednesday then welcomed upperclassmen looking to broaden their own horizons.
Both days were abuzz with excitement and energy as members of our award-winning bands filled the plaza with music—catching the attention of our neighbors in the historic Jersey City community we are proud to call home.
One passerby even challenged our Chess Club to an impromptu match, and our students had the opportunity to well-represent Prep and show off their skills.
Nearby, past and future collided as the Classics Club encountered Prep’s resident robot, courtesy of our Robotics Team, “The Tech Terrors.” Meanwhile, our Student Council challenged their classmates to answer questions in the moment to win a prize.
Other displays included service-based groups, in keeping with our commitment to creating young men for and with others; hobby and interest groups spanning Dungeons & Dragons, video games, cinema, comedy, and more; performance groups; and cultural and language groups celebrating the diversity of Saint Peter’s Prep.
We extend special thanks to all our co-curricular leaders, our faculty and staff moderators, and the Office of Student Life for making this year’s event a success.
