All Club showings are free and open to all UT students, faculty, and staff; you don’t have to be a member to attend! However, in order to access the Club’s mighty lending library (and, more importantly, to bask in the knowledge that you help to fund this mighty organization), you must register as a member.
As a UT student organization, we can only offer memberships to currently enrolled students of UT and to current UT faculty and staff. You can sign up during the library break period at any of our regular meetings during the Spring and Fall semesters. (There are no library check-outs or membership sign-ups during the Summer session, although we do hold weekly screenings year-round.)
Although all students, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend, to become a Club member, you must pay an annual membership fee. These fees help us to purchase new anime, pay for our annual student organization registration fees, maintain our web site, and also fund things like prizes and pizza for our special event nights, contests, etc.
Registration as a member is for an entire school year (Fall, Spring, and Summer), and is $10 per year for any UT student, faculty, or staff member.
The Anime Club maintains an email list for use by its members (as well as former members and non-members who share our interests and feel like signing up). The list is primarily used to send out schedules/event summaries each week; it is generally very low-traffic. If you would like to join the list, you can sign up directly through the UT Mailing List site.
Should you someday grow weary of this anime world, you can also choose to unsubscribe via that same online interface.
If you need technical help with the mailing list site, your best bet is to start with the UT mailing list help page.
Once you’ve signed up to the list, you should receive an automated introductory message; if you don’t receive such a message within a reasonable period of time (up to half a day), you can contact us and we can check to make sure that you were successfully added to the list.
We’re entirely run on the power and generosity of our members; there’s no glory or material reward in it, but it’s great to be able to help people to have a good time and enjoy anime together! If you’re interested in helping out the Officers (or even evolving, Pokémon-like, into an Officer yourself!), feel free to talk to the President, Vice President, or other official-looking person at one of our meetings, or email us to discuss ways to help out. We’d love to have you aboard!
