Enrichments: J&C Edition


Peter Champelli

One of the best things about a diverse, large school like duPont Manual is the after-school clubs. There are clubs for everything, from chess to German minigolf. This series will venture into each club at Manual, three at a time.

Before this installment, some J&C lingo:

‘Staffer’ = Person on staff. Has more responsibilities than clubber; puts the final publication together.

‘Clubber’ = Person not on staff; primarily comes to club meetings on Wednesdays. Associated with ‘Freshman’.

‘EIC’ = Editor-in-Chief; person in charge. This person is in charge of clubbers, staffers, and the publication as a whole.
