Festival ISU is the day when many registered students organizations (RSOs) make their pitch to new members for the first time.

This year’s Festival ISU on Thursday, August 28, was a huge success, with RSOs joining other campus groups and local businesses to introduce themselves to Illinois State University students.

The STATEside crew was out on the Quad too, asking student leaders from 10 different RSOs if they could pitch their group in 20 seconds or less. Check out our video above to see the results.

Thanks to the following RSOs for appearing in the video: Asian Pacific American Coalition, Best Buddies, ISU Service Dogs, Club Baseball, Student Alumni Council, ISU Equestrians, ISU Bass Fishing Team, Construction Management Student Association, HOPE (Helping Others Prosper Everyday), and ISU Astronomy Club.

Check out Illinois State’s full list of RSOs.
