MEMBERSHIP — Clubs at McLean have faced challenges gaining members from diverse backgrounds. A common misconception is that cultural clubs only exist for those that identify with that culture.
“These groups are meant to not only bring together that certain cultural community within the school, but raise awareness so that other people of different perspectives can get to understand them more,” Pang said.
Club names sometimes suggest that only students of certain backgrounds should join.
“It’s been a constant struggle of [gaining new members] to understand different perspectives,” Pang said.
