iFalcon Club focuses on fundraising and student success

About 10 students learned about iFalcon’s campus participation and fundraising priority during its first meeting on Feb. 12 at Learning Center 133.

After learning about the clubs participation in campus events such as an improv show, Falcon Games and the spring festival, attendees mingled with pizza and juice and introduced themselves to the rest of the new club members.

Ana Sosa, nursing major, said, “I want to gain success, be a successful student. I joined [this club] because I changed my study habits.”

Club President Michelle Mancilla said, “We want to advocate a lot more and have a lot more fundraisers. Last semester I don’t think we held a fundraiser because of the lack of timing that we had. We were all really busy students, so this semester we’re going to set aside all our stuff and just fundraise, fundraise, fundraise, focus on fundraising for the scholarship money.”

iFalcon will be offering three different scholarships that will be open to all Cerritos College students, providing the academic requirements are met.

To raise the money for those scholarships, Vice President Sophia Kaiser said, “I had this idea that we could do henna tattoos because I have this friend who’s really good at it.”

The club plans to provide the henna tattoos for this semester’s Global Village event, in which it will be representing the country of India, as well as sell Indian food to raise scholarship money.

“We’re also going to hold other bake sales and restaurant fundraisers. We send people to restaurants and get 20% of the money,” Mancilla said.

Kaiser added, “We do a fundraiser at Round 1.”

The club will also be selling iFalcon shirts for $12, with all the profit going toward scholarships.

“Students should join this club because it’s a great way to advocate student success, get to know each other and network. Also, become a student much more involved than just coming to school and leaving from class and going home,” Mancilla said.

About the Contributor

Monica Gallardo, Opinion Editor
Spring 2015 Hey, I'm Monica and I'm the opinion editor at Talon Marks. When I'm not stressing about creating story topics and making sure everyone meets their deadlines, I'm probably hanging out with friends or sleeping or just chilling with dogs. It's my second semester on the paper and hopefully next semester I'll be at a Cal State. Last semester I was the sports copy editor and I'm excited to take on a bigger role and grow with my fellow journalists. In the future, after school is all done with and I'm responsible enough, I plan to go to New Zealand and maybe stay there because even though I've never been there, it's my favorite place. And no, it's not because I love The Lord of the Rings and New Zealand is where the trilogy was filmed. That's just a coincidence.
