Hey JAC!

Welcome to Week 2 of JAC!

Did you miss out on the Welcome Week Picnic? Do you want to attend more social events? Don't worry there are more opportunities!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend! This week we will be having a few changes to our original screenings and plans on voting due to the release date of the series we will be watching this quarter not lining up with our general meetings.

Make sure to keep an eye out for all our weekly announcements on our newsletter and Facebook page!

[Week 2]:Special Screenings and Game-Night ╰(✧∇✧╰)

This upcoming Thursday, JAC will be hosting our first GAME-NIGHT event. Come enjoy some special screenings and a fun games set up around the the club room. Games will range from popular video games to board and card games. Make new friends over a game of Cards Against Humanity or challenge your fellow members to an intense match in Super Smash Brothers 4!

Special Announcement: We have good news and bad news. The bad news is we won't be having our usual in-club meeting in Kinsey 1240 on Week 4. The good news is we will be hosting another special event, which you can read about under the Week 4 section!

Dorm/Westwood Dinner:

Remember to attend our after-club group dinners! The JAC club meeting may be over, but that does not mean you can't go out with your fellow members and Senpai out for dinner.

Take advantage of the opportunity to grab dinner and talk with you new friends!

[Update] Week 3: Voting for Screening (n˘v˘•)¬

Traditionally, the members of JAC get to vote on the anime we will be watching for the season. Our Screener will show a few shows and you all get a chance to pick what we watch at the end of the screenings!
