Whether you are looking to take on a leadership role or become a general member, there is something for everyone who wants to get involved. If you enjoy writing articles, taking pictures or videos or advertising on social media, then you're in the right place.

3. You get to be a part of launching a new nationally recognized group on campus

The cool thing about joining Spoon at W&L is that it's brand new! There are plenty of clubs that have been around at W&L for years, but Spoon is launching this fall at W&L and that makes it extra special, because you get to be a part of founding something. 

4. You have more say about the food/wellness on campus and in Lexington

It is up to us to change and improve the campus of W&L and the town of Lexington. The small town and university have the potential to grow and become better than before with the addition of a Spoon chapter. It is up to us at W&L to write articles and publish pictures about potential food places to come to campus or better ways to attain sustainability.

5. Connect with students all over the country and the world

Spoon is unique because it is not isolated to any one campus. Spoon chapters exist at over 200 college campuses across the country and the world. Not only will you be able to connect with students at W&L, but you will also be able to connect with students from all over.

6. Work for something that is student organized and student run

Joining clubs and committees at W&L are great, but how many of them are totally student led and run? Spoon is organized and led by students, encouraging growth and improvement among the student body and campus.
