Written By Mick Stinelli, Co-News Editor

The United Student Government (USG) recognized four clubs at its most recent meeting on Monday.

The Point Blank Comedy Collective was recognized alongside the Point Park University K-Pop Dance Club, the Point Park Uno League and the Point Park Ultimate Frisbee Club.

The Point Park Uno League was founded by Bryan Partika, who started holding friendly competitions in his dorm room just last year.

The Uno League, which is made up of 11 officers including a Keeper of the Rules and Selection Committee Chairman, is looking to host tournaments every two weeks, but Partika said he’s most looking forward to the social aspect of the game.

“I’m just hoping that people have a good time and meet some new friends,” Partika said. “Just have fun playing a simple card game.”

Partika said the league has two senators right now, but he’s hoping to have one for each year.

Christiana Cates, a freshman journalism major, started the K-Pop
Dance Club.

“I always had a passion for K-Pop music and dance,” Cates said.

Cates said that it was hard finding people who are into K-Pop, but so far, 10 people have joined the organization.

“I really want this club to become a part of Point Park after I graduate,”
Cates said.

No meetings have been scheduled yet, but Cates said that she expects to organize something within the coming weeks.

Elsewhere, the Pre Med Club changed their name to the Pre Medical Student Association.

USG senators said the change to an “association” would help them receive national credibility.

The Active Minds Club has also been re-activated. The club intends to to address the issue of mental health on campus and in the surrounding community.

USG moved to officially change the name of their Press Secretary to Communications Director.

Parliamentarian Alexander Popichak, a senior broadcast production and media management major, said the change would more fully encompass the array of duties associated with their Communications Director.

The Student Concerns Committee, which works to gauge the pervasive problems within the student body, said they plan to have student concerns tables around campus in the near future. The tables will give the committee a chance to talk to students one-on-one about their concerns with student life.
