They are also looking for talented new recruits to make a solid team of Falcons.

“As long as you are passionate about cheer-leading, any university students are welcome to join”, said coach Anna Busby.

The members of this society will be selected through a tryout process.

Candidates will be asked to perform a cheer and dance that will be taught by the active coach.
