Sometimes, the best way to give your brain a break is to take a brief escape from reality. One of the best places on campus for this is the Game Club at the Downtown Milwaukee campus. Whether students crave a high-energy, adrenaline-filled tournament or a quiet room to discover a new favorite, this club offers a space for everyone. Students can enjoy not just video games, but board games, card games, and party games just to name a few.

During Halloween, the club hosted a costume party and competition. President CeeCee Huff and Vice President Austin Zorc went out of their way to ensure every member felt welcome and included in the space. Even in a recreational club, student leaders work tirelessly to make MATC more inviting and welcoming. To decompress from the burden of exams and essays with peers who share the same niche interests is a refreshing reminder that there is something for everyone here at MATC.

Students who want to join or start a club should visit the Office of Student Life at their campus. There’s a space for everyone here at MATC.

About the Contributor
Christopher D’Allen, Editor-in-Chief
My name is Christopher D'Allen and I am the Editor-in-Chief for the MATC Times, a student run paper dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in scholastic journalism. The MATC Times stands as the voice of our students and a bastion of free speech for the communiy we represent. I joined the staff in my first semester at MATC and obtained my current position at the start of Summer '23. Here I am a photography student and hold a BA in Political Science and Spanish & Latin American Studies with a minor in Democracy and Justice Studies. I have worked an Administrative Assistant, World Language Instructor, a Head Lifeguard and Resident Assistant, but have found that my passion lies in the arts. As a photographer, I challenge myself daily to find a new perspective, capture a fleeting scene and turn moments into memories. As we work to relaunch the MATC Times website and grow our staff, I want to make joining our team as positive a learning experience and beneficial a work experience as possible. I strongly believe in the power of collaboration and inclusivity. As an Editor, I actively encourage diverse perspectives. Each student's unique viewpoint enriches our storytelling and fosters a sense of unity within our community. I aim to bridge the gap between words and images, revealing the untold stories that shape our community.
