Video Game Club meets every Friday from 3:30-4:30 in Room 235 (find later). After starting a little over a year ago, the club is finally starting to expand from its original state.

The club has gone under the banner of Video Game Club for a little over a year now, but when it was created around 2 years ago, it had a completely different purpose.
