At the end of the night, you will fill out a preference form for the small groups you most want to be a part of. Don’t miss out!

What is the Family System?

Since Rotaract is a large club, we’ve created the family system to promote close-knit bonds among our members and to provide as many opportunities for people to get to know one another as possible. This semester Rotaract is introducing a new system called Big Bear/Little Bear in addition to our established Family System. There are three Rotaract families and they split into nine Big Bear/Little Bear groups. Each Big Bear/Little Bear group is led by two officers (big bears) and will have 6-8 general members (little bears).

Throughout the semester there will be various family events planned by the Family Chair for families to bond and compete with other families. In addition to the official club events, all Big Bear/Little Bear groups will get to plan activities and socials together such as dinners, late night boba runs, study sessions, game nights, trips to San Francisco, and more!

Feel free to contact the Family Chair, Susan Wang, at if you have any questions!
