It goes without saying that, with our new way of life, everyone from students to professors alike, has had much difficulty with the transition to online. Organizations and clubs are feeling this more, since they are formed on the basis of social interaction, and many leaders of these organizations, myself included, have felt the heavy burden of working within our new boundaries. This leads many of us to ask: How can we make our organizations appealing to students with the new online format?
