1-Up Club; the new student organisation for all things pop culture

1-Up Club is a new student organisation about all things pop culture, being set up at the University of Malta by 7 students coming from different courses and years.

Inspired by the Junior College Manga Club, they hope to provide a meeting space for all those with an interest in superheroes, comics, anime, manga, video games, novels, RPGs and the likes.

The team at 1-Up Club will ensure that everything that they do will contribute to creating and maintaining a community with a sense of belonging for all their members. They aim to achieve this by bringing together like-minded students, and providing them with the opportunity to interact with each other and talk about their common interests.

Speaking to The Yuppie, they said that they would love to see this community become ingrained in campus culture, and above everything else, hope to see the Club outlive their term on the founding Exec.

Despite them just starting, 1-Up Club are already working on various activities, namely  bi-weekly discussions and meet ups for interested members. In terms of events, coming fresh off the heels of their Fresher’s Week presence is their intention to go see the supervillain movie Venom as it comes out in cinemas soon, open to all members and stakeholders. The expected date is Sunday 7th October, subject to Eden’s release schedule.

1-Up Club are also in negotiation with Wicked Comics to obtain yet another stand, this time at the annual Malta ComicCon, this November 3rd-4th.

The new organisation will be present at Freshers’ Week, where students have the opportunity to meet and get to know more about them, and also join the organisation by going to visit their stand at Fresher’s Week!
