NCASC Hosts Annual Bake-Sale

 

A local club on the Bloomsburg University campus, National Communication Association Student Club, held it’s annual bake-sale of the semester on February 14, 2017. The sale was located in the McCormick building. Students familiar with the campus would recognize this area as the “Old Side”, of McCormick. This event was a Valentine’s Day theme. A couple of students from the organization participated in this event. They donated both their time and baked goods to the sale. The proceeds were raised to give back to the organization. The money covers special events that their board would like to host such as speaker forums and COMM Day.

 

During this event I was given the opportunity to interview two other students that helped run the bake sale and are deeply involved in the club, Jenna Nace and Jason Footses,  to find out how they felt about the club and the bake-sale. Both students were asked a similar series of questions, here are thei

r responses.

 

 

ME: What is your name and major?

 

NACE: Jenna Nace, I am a senior. My track is Organizational Communications

 

ME: So Jenna, how long have you been involved in the club?

 

NACE: I would say for about two years now.

 

ME: Why did you initially join the club?

 

NACE: It was a good resume builder and I also joined because of my friends. They are in the club as well.

 

ME: What do you like about the club?

 

NACE: I like the guest speakers, they’re usually alums and they can help with networking and advice.

 

ME: How do you feel about the bake sales?

 

NACE: I think it’s a good idea because it raises money. But it hard to get people to buy sometimes.

 

ME: Why do you think it’s hard to get people to buy sometimes?

 

NACE: A lot of students and faculty don’t carry cash.

ME: What do you think will make this event better?

 

NACE: I think if we had members of the club come to classes and tell people about upcoming events it would be better for promotions.

 

I also interviewed Jason Footses with the same questions. Here are his responses.

 

ME: What is your name and major?

 

FOOTSES: My name is Jason Footses. My major is Communication Studies, my track is Organizational Communication.

 

ME: So Jason, how long have you been involved in the club?

 

FOOTSES: I would say for about two semesters, so a year.

 

ME: Why did you initially join the club?

 

FOOTSES: I was recommended to join after declaring my major.

 

ME: What do you like about the club?

ME: What do you think will make this club better?
