AK Bhangra

This is a student-run organization on campus which aims to express the Punjabi (Indian) culture through a well-known dance: Bhangra. The club mixes traditional Punjabi dance moves with modern hip-hop. The team’s goal is to increase awareness and respect of the culture through charities, fundraisers, and even Bhangra competitions. There will be a recruitment event Sept. 23 at 5 p.m. located in the Infocision building, room 310. The team encourages everyone to attend and learn more about the dance and Punjabi culture by trying it for themselves. There will be free food and drinks along with a t-shirt giveaway.

 

Zip-Strike

This club began as a group of friends trying to find something fun to do with their Nerf blasters. The group then brought the Humans VS Zombies game back to campus and created Zip-Strike to host the game. It hosts two games a year. The club is also planning smaller events such as capture the flag, Nerf wars, or days for modifying Nerf blasters. The club’s goal is to create a group of people who like Nerf and are looking for some fun. Zip-Strike meets every other week on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. in Kolbe Hall, room 301. Its first meeting will take place Sept. 7 and the club encourages everyone to come.
