Interesting article in today Boston Globe (boston.com) about how schools have seen an exponential growth in student clubs. 400 clubs at Harvard? 500 clubs at UNC-Chapel Hill?
In my day the offices at the Student Activities Center were mostly silent as a tomb and the clubs had to beg for members.
Is the trend of adding clubs/organizations a problem as some administrators believe? Are fears of stratification justified? The comment from the Harvard administrator was interesting; 'these are all bright kids who want to create something, but I tell them not all of them are going to be Bill Gates. You need to know how to work within an existing group.'
