Lewis and Clark Community College is home to a diverse student body and offers many clubs and activities to a variety of their students’ hobbies and interests.
L&C offers the regular organizations like Student Government and Radio Broadcasting, but this semester, two new clubs are have been added to the list.
The Gamer’s Roundtable and The Fighting Lions are looking to become a cornerstone in student involvement out of the gate.The Roundtable is a club that discusses Japanese anime, and spends time playing various video games.
“The Gamers Roundtable targets people who are interested in getting in touch with their nerd side, and I mean that in a good way,” founder of the club, Lucas Gardner said.
Gardner has always wanted to belong to a club like his, but that was not a possibility in high school. So this Fall when he had the chance to create his dream club, there was no question about it.
“I hope to bring people together and enjoy doing what a lot of people enjoy doing, and that is gaming,” Gardner said.
Meetings are held every first and third Friday of the month in the Underground Connection from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and anyone interested is encouraged to come.
Gardner is expecting the club to grow to a membership of around 30.
The Fighting Lions’ name hints at their club’s function: self defense. However, this club is not one dimensional, the club also focuses on dancing.
“The goal of The Fighting Lions is to bring people’s self confidence up,” club founder, Tanner Brooks said.
Membership of The Lions has already grown to 10 plus. Brooks is looking for more people to become engaged by getting the club name out there.
The club meets every first and third Tuesday of the month from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Hatheway Hall dance studio.
