If you’re looking for a club that exposes you to art in and around the Edinboro community, then the Culture Club is a great fit for you.

The Culture Club, formerly known as the English and Humanities Club, strives to enhance student knowledge of all things cultural.

The club has been around for several years, but recently club president James Palo, along with current members, helped transition it from a non-existent to active organization.

“We offer a way to have our students experience the arts and to have fun while doing so. Last semester, a group of us went to the Cleveland Arts Museum, and we had an amazing time,” said Palo.

According to the club’s BoroSync page, “The Culture Club was established to bring the students closer to the cultural arts and to promote the visual arts. We strive to expand our members’ appreciation for the cultural arts and provide regular chances to experience a variety of performances.”

Currently, the club has about 16 members, but Palo states that students of any major are allowed to join the club at any time.

The club visits museums around the area including the Cleveland Arts Museum and is also working to have author of “Fight Club,” Chuck Palahniuk, visit Edinboro and give a presentation.

“People should join because college is the best time in our lives; we should all be able to go to events that we never thought of going to before,” Palo said.

“Personally, I’ve gotten a solid group of friends out of the club and we have a lot of fun without the pressure of a large organization,” he said.

The Culture Club meets every other Wednesday in Hendricks 100 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. The next meeting is on March 16. Dues are $5 a year; if the club goes on a trip, students pay for their own food and gas.
