The Model United Nations is one of the several academic clubs at Sunset that lead up to an exciting conference. Spring Con, short for conference, may not have the most original name, I know. However, the club does its best to emulate the United Nations and its policies that aim for global peace.

Next week on April 13th, two giant yellow school buses will load up over 100 high school munsters, supervised by Mr. Dennis McClain, the advisor, and head of Oregon MUN this year.

With Spring Con arriving at the horizon, the anticipation flurries. After all, members had to write two position papers based on their individual country and topic. To elaborate, students from Sunset had to choose between four nations to represent at the conference.

Sunset High School had the honor of representing one of the Big 5 countries- the U.S.A. Other countries include Kenya, Poland, and Argentina. Additionally, the five main themes revolve around human rights, global security, the global economy, the environment, and health and human services.

Besides the academic work, the conference is hosted at the University of Oregon in Eugene. After picking roommates for the span of the conference, April 13th to April 15th, the students are ready to immerse themselves in fierce debate to form resolutions.

While Spring Con encourages students in Oregon to increase interest in activism and global issues, it also allows members to socialize with other students from different schools as well. Many members agree that the conference makes MUN one of the most fulfilling clubs to participate in.

Get ready; there’s only one week until the fun-MUN starts!
