Japan Entertainment Club at LaGuardia Community College

Responsive image This document was last modified on:

The Japan Entertainment Club is an official student organization with representation at SAC (the Student Advisory Council) through the Office of Student Life at LaGuardia Community College. The Japan Club was established in the early 2000's and its original goal was to support international students from Japan. The purpose and the membership of the Japan Club have shifted from the Japanese international students to non-Japanese students who are interested in Japan and Japanese culture, especially its pop culture such as anime, manga, video games, and J-pop.

The Japan Club merged with its sister club, Anime Club, and was renamed into "Japan and Entertainment Club" in Spring 2022.
