Club History

The Anime Society began as the Anime Club in the year of our Lord, 2005. However, it was unofficial and only consisted of die-hard fans that wished to meet together in a run-down apartment and engage in weeaboo activity. In the following year, the founder and former president Ashley McBride decided to take a chance and make it official. However, the club member count was very low, only a few hardcore remained, dubbing themselves as the Elite Eight. The following semester flourished, due to an activity fair, mass e-mailings, as well as over nine-thousand copies of club advertisements posted around the campus, we successfully had over 25 people attend the first showing.
