Several our members, past
and present are very creative – and they now host stalls in local art and film
conventions, selling art work and showcasing their content. As you can imagine
having a strong base in the creative ATRiuM Campus, JAMS gets very talented
members from a range of courses. These members all contribute to the
organisation and operation of the society; providing posters, promotional films
and even animated shorts! Some of our members have been lucky enough to travel
and work in Japan, with recent graduates moving onto the JET (Japanese Exchange
and Teaching) programme with the Japanese government!
I was the Chair of JAMS from 2013-2015, and I haven’t looked back since. I’ve done my best to keep in touch with members past and present, and it’s always great to support get together like the most recent. On Saturday we got together at the Newport Campus, shared some stories from over the years and looked back on some of the events and then headed off into Friars walk for Bowling, Laser Tag and some Japanese food in Wagamama! We had members travel from all over the UK for the reunion, and one student all the way from Germany. Thankfully, the CLV Student Village could accommodate us all, so it felt like being students again!
If JAMS sounds like something you’d enjoy being a part of, be sure to check out the society stand at the upcoming Freshers’ Street Fair in Cardiff and Newport! I’m sure they’ll be around for many years to coming, building on its strong membership and alumni base."
