Students rushed toward the cafeteria on Friday to experience Costa Mesa High’s annual International Week celebration. A majority of Mesa’s clubs were in attendance, but the cultural clubs were the ones with the strongest presence. Each cultural club sold something from their culture. For example, the Latino Culture Club sold carne asada tacos, rice, and chips and salsa. Pacific Islander Club sold fried chicken, macaroni salad, Hawaiian salad, egg rolls, and white rice. Even with the flutter of activity, many clubs reported smaller sales than the last Club Rush in December. Treasurer of Asian Club, Michael Nguyen said that the sales were smaller than last time. Vice President of the Latino Culture Club, Nakita Rico, stated that the sales were “not as great as we like it to be, but we are learning.” Contrary to the trend, Gamers’ Club had been doing well with their bacon-wrapped hot dogs. “They’ve been selling out every time,” Richard Carmody said. The B.S.U., or Black Student Union, also made its debut. The club was officially started this January and drew a rather large following of 20 members. The club sold barbecue ribs from the Newport Rib Company, corn bread, pasta, macaroni salad, and soda. Secretary of B.S.U., Justin Valesquez, said, “I think it’s a good beginning for a new club.” The event was faced with a mix reaction. President of Asian Club, Peter Chau, had a positive opinion of the event saying, “It was legend....wait for it...dary!” While Daniel Lawrence, a Sophomore, said, “I enjoyed it, but I don't think there was enough clubs this time...not enough variety.” While the event seemed successful for some, it seems that this Club Rush needs more support if it is going to become truly successful.
