JMAC WQ Week 10: Witch Hunt and the General Meeting

S’up JMACers,

Welp, it’s that time of the quarter, week 10 is (nearly) upon us… Best wishes on your final papers and final projects to round off the winter quarter!

Sword Art Online comes to the big screen~

A new adventure begins when Kirito, Asuna and their party members explore the world of “Ordinal Scale,” a new hit game utilizing augmented reality technology. Players are about to find the line between the virtual world and reality beginning to blur, and their worst nightmares coming true. Can Kirito save his friends, or is this going to be game over for him? Find out in Sword Art Online the Movie: -Ordinal Scale-.

Catch this larger-than-life event in cinemas on Thursday, March 9th! More info about the film can be found online via the Fathom Events website.

Next Meeting: Winter Quarter Week 10

Stop on by and join us for our final meeting of the winter quarter~ The meeting will take place on Monday, March 6th from 4-9pm in room 314A of the Lincoln Park Student Center. The meeting will begin with a thrilling game of Witch Hunt as this week’s social hour!

After the weekly powerpoint, we will have the General Meeting. During this meeting, we review previous events and discuss what went well (and what we could do better) as a group. This is also the time when we take volunteers for social hours, weekly showings, and suggestions for running series.

After finalizing the agenda for the spring quarter, we’ll conclude with the final episodes of GATE, our running series for the winter quarter.

Last Week’s PowerPoint (Week 9)

Read up on all the latest news (and more) in the weekly powerpoint, which is viewable via dropbox.

The slides to last week are themed to Winter Wonder Festival, a semiannual event where Japanese companies showcase soon-to-be-released anime and video game figures~

The slides also feature February’s manga of the month (a series that just ended last week, woww!) and music featured in the anime Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable as the music video of the week.

(signing off in the spirit of Persona 3 and episode #081 of the Dear Hank and John podcast)
