Sean, Ryan, Mark, and Noelle had the chance to socialize with incredible students from the College of Saint Rose at a gathering of the Geeks of the Round Table. The club president, Nikos Assimakopoulos took the time to tell us about what a typical meeting is like and the fun activities.
“We are a gaming club with board games, video games, and Anime. The number one goal is to find a free and open relaxation time for students. School is tough and tiring. While we love our classes, we need a time to take a break from everything.”
“At the end of the day, we are a group and a family and everybody is welcome. We have been around for about 7 years and have three meetings a week on Wednesday, Saturday, and Mondays are just for Anime. We meet from 7 to 11 PM, but someone does not have to stay the whole time. Another good thing about the club is that someone does not have to come to a certain number of meetings to be included. All you have to do is come to one meeting to become a member!”
Sean said he loves the club because, “I like Anime and have been playing video games since I was a kid.” Or as Ryan states, “I get to play board games and draw characters from video games and Anime on the dry erase board. My favorites are Transformers, Godzilla, and DC/Marvel comics characters.”
We appreciate the students, faculty, and service employees within the College of Saint Rose who have embraced our students and made them part of campus!
