Japanese Club exposes students to a new culture

Stewart Mccallum, campus editor

The Japanese Club is a club focused on tearing down barriers between American and Japanese culture by exposing students to Japanese culture. They meet twice a month in Room 1730 and take part in new activities. Some of these activities include Japanese food days, manga reads, Pokémon battles, and playing both Japanese board games and video games. These activities aren’t set in stone and aren’t preplanned. If you have any suggestions on what they could do, you’re free to make them to Club President Grant Winsand or Club Vice President Viktor Scheett.

You don’t need to be enrolled in a Japanese class to join nor do you need to necessarily need to know Japanese, according to Winsand. He did mention however, that it would be beneficial to at least be in a Japanese class or know some Japanese.
