Membership in literary and culture club is open to all majors.
By Andrea Herrera
The Cheshyre Cheese Club, inspired by a pub in London established in 1926, is the longest running club at this college.
It was created by a group of women from different majors who would get together and express their creativity.
Music business sophomore Tone Guerrero is the president of the club. His goal is to keep the club going and recruit enough members to keep the tradition alive.
“The club celebrates the humanities, arts, fostering social development and creativity,” he said.
“This is a club that could really focus on different opportunities,” Guerrero said.
As a fundraiser, the club sells old and used books for reasonable prices and the earnings go toward scholarship opportunities, Guerrero explained.
“We feed the mind with encouraging literacy,” Guerrero said.
One of the many aspirations of the club is for students to share their creativity with others, to be able to express themselves through music, speeches, poems and more.
To help achieve this goal, the club hosts an open mic night every month for students from all majors to share their work. The next open mic night will be 6-9 p.m. Oct 24 in Loftin Student Center. The theme is Edgar Allan Poe’s poem ‘The Raven.”
Guerrero said students are welcomed to dress up in Halloween costumes as there will be a contest at the end of the night awarding scariest, funniest, most creative and cheesiest costume.
“I’m open to suggestions,” Guerrero said. “I’m a big believer of community service.”
The club meets at 1:30 p.m. every Tuesday in Room 203 of Gonzales Hall.
