Located in Queens, also known as the “Borough of the World,” you’ll often hear a myriad of languages intermingled on the spacious Queens College campus. One of the places where you can witness this exchange of cultures and languages is on the lower floor of the Student Union, where the anime club is located in his room LL-22.
With over 100 clubs on campus, QC is a melting pot of culture and student activities. Clubs range from the Caribbean Student Association to the South Asian Student Association and many others. While many clubs at QC center around a single culture, identity, or religion, one special club, the Anime Club, brings together students from a variety of majors and professions with interests in a wide range of popular media.
Since in-person classes began, the club has gained many new members and now has over 150 members on Discord. It is on the Discord server that the club remains active and thriving. It’s where club members come together to play popular games like his Valorant and League of Legends, or watch movies.
Jacqueline Horowitz, known as Jackie, a graphic design major, has been president of the anime club since last semester.when night news When I spoke with Horowitz, she was quick to credit the club’s success to her predecessor, Omar Onofre, who graduated with a degree in economics.
“Jackie is doing a great job keeping the club going. I visit from time to time and find the club room to be just as vibrant, if not more so, with new members. I see it,” Onofre said.
Damilola Babalola, a medical school student who is also on the men’s track and field team, just joined the club this year. She practices track for a few hours, and on days when she’s had enough work and people are hanging out, I’ll see her a little bit sometimes, Babalola said.
Steven Mercedes Corporan, a senior double majoring in elementary and early childhood education and East Asian studies, was just 5 years old when he came to the United States from the Dominican Republic. He joined the anime club as a first-year student when it was still known as the science fiction/animation club.
