The Music Club has no specific genre of music; its talent is so carried scope large enough for almost any musician to find their niche. There are presently many independent music groups within the club, the rock band being most well established. All genres of music and instruments are welcomed’; the club also has a few country/acoustic/blues enthusiasts. The club hosts bi-yearly concerts on campus; however more frequent shows are possible if requested. There are weekly meeting and jam sessions during which all members perform together (or in groups) in a relaxed atmosphere. There is a university-provided club space, sound system and acoustic drum set. The club space is open at all times for music club members to practice. Member’s instruments can also be stored in the club room. Prior knowledge of music is not required to be a member, the club supports students who are interested and want to learn from scratch.

      The Humanitarian Club is dedicated to providing members a way to be involved with the society. Being a humanitarian is having concern for or helping to improve the welfare and happiness of people. Hopefully, we would try our best to make a difference in our society with the help of our fellow students. Our mission is to give students more insight on issues that affect the society and to find ways to make it better. It is also our goal to see students learn from their experiences and use it to make themselves better citizens where ever they might be. In the near future we plan on setting work shops where students visit facilities to see how things get done. Fundraisers, clean up drives, marathons, walkathons and plenty more that has to deal with being supportive to which ever cause might be of interest to our members.

Koshal Makhija

knm3782@g.rit.edu

 

The RIT gaming club aims to just relieve people from their stressful everyday life by introducing some games to the members, and allowing them to escape from their daily routine. In the gaming club we hope to show people that games aren’t always a waste of time. You can learn and play at the same time, some games have been proven to increase the sharpness of people’s minds and their abilities to think and understand situations. Here we hope to introduce people to such type of games, that they can enjoy and at the same time subliminally are benefitting themselves. Another one of our aims is to bring people together. In our competitions we blind pick teams, people get to know each other, and when they play together they bond together, and that’s what we are hoping to achieve from most of our events. With all these aims listed, TGC is the gateway for students to escape their tedious and stressful university lives.

  Drama Club        
 

The RIT Dubai Drama Club aims to provide students of RIT with the chance to broaden their background in acting and filming/directing. Students, who show keen interest in acting, can use the skills they’ve learned later on in the future if they ever choose to take on acting as a profession. The plan is to allow students to take turns acting, filming, and directing, in order to create short films that will be produced once each semester. Each film will differ in genre, to ensure that the students along with the audience stay entertained.
