Hum..Dupage you say? I go to McHenry County College (for now at least) and I was looking into some of the programs at Dupage and was thinking about going there. I saw something about a transfer to Japan brochure at our college. Too bad I havent transferred yet because I would love to join! ^_^

You still can. You don't have to be a COD student to join the club!

Nope! Anyone can join. We welcome members from any school, county, planet... whatever. ^_^
To be a club officers you'd have to be a COD student, but there's no pre-recs to be a member. All that we ask is that you bring something to work on, even if it's just something small. We'll be running various tutorials and what not as well. It's the perfect time to get your cosplays done!

I would love to come but i dont think I'll be able to attend the club for at least a month. Sadly being a freshman in college and getting situated downtown takes some getting used to. Not only that I dont have a car...only CTA...if there is a train or bus route near there I can probably make it. It sounds like fun!

Just a thought-- take a video of the meeting and put it up on youtube, lol. That way, those of us who can't make it can still provide feedback and learn a thing or two about how things are going with the club...

Actually... you just take to CTA to Glen Ellyn then take a bus to COD. There's a bus that goes directly from the Glen Ellyn stop to both COD campuses.

That's a really great idea! I'll ask around and see if there's anyone who could video it for us. Thanks ^^

I'm a total n00b when it comes to taking public transit.....-sigh- Thanks for the info and I'll try to make one of the meetups as soon as I can. It sounds like a lot of fun and I would love to come! ^__^

...Weird place for a first post, but my sister told me about it and I have some time on my hands between my Bio and night-time Chem classes, so I might stop by. I'm going to Benedictine, which is only a few miles away, so if you see this in time, know that a photographer may show up (although I only have 10 pictures on a disposable camera and my cell phone to work with, but meh).

(Oh, for those that don't know me from one of the more recent gatherings, I'm just Jan, older brother of Jam-Kiske. Hello, I guess!)

It was wonderful! :heart: We have quite a few new members this years!!! *does chibi dance of joy* We did introductions, handed out some info sheets for people to fill out, then introduced this sem's new officer's board. Afterwords we quickly went over the club rules then dove right in to making the posters for the activities fair. It was a short meeting, but that was to be expected.

We had an unbelievable amount of interest at the activities fair. So we're very excited about that! This week in club we're going to be doing a "get to know each other activity" then playing some teams games and activities just so that we can get everyone comfortable with each other and give folks a chance to get to know us and one another. We're also going to be talking about what tutorials everyone would like to have us do. We'll probably do some quick introductions and go over the rules one more time for any new members. So... if you missed last weeks meeting don't feel bad. We'd love to have you this week~!



Ps) We weren't able to video the first part of the meeting. We didn't have anyone who could get a hold of a camcorder. Sorry guys!

Well, since I did eventually find it, I guess I can start coming on Tuesdays. Still, since I don't really cosplay ((so much as act as our group's photographer)), I can't exactly promise participation... ^_^;;;;;;;

That is a VERY good idea.

^-^ I'll bring my camera now.

I brought it to the first meeting. But I got there late. So I missed the majority of announcements.

^-^;
I'll be trying a lot harder, especially now that I'm an officer, lol.

Sucks I live all the way in Northern Lake County, (Right near the Wisconsin border) and am not able to go to stuff like this, I swear every other county but mine has all the fun stuff, sometimes I think I have the worst luck.
