pingHappy April Fool’s Day!

The game you just played isn’t really a test for entrance into a new club. It was just a way to have some fun on the PCC website on this day of hijinks and Tomfoolery.

Missed all the fun?

The prank may be over, but you can still play the game over here.

Real clubs

If you are interested in student clubs, because they really do exist, visit your respective campus’ club page and sign up for some fun and learning. Clubs can be sports related or academic in nature or simply a hobby. Run by the campus ASPCC offices, each location has different clubs. Check them out!

Clubs are a great way to be involved at PCC than just classes. The ASPCC branches sponsor clubs with plenty to offer to people of different interests and backgrounds. You can even set up your own club if you choose.

And feel free to comment below on what you think of our retro practical joke.

Damn! No Pong club?!?! Here I thought I could whip out my mad eight bit skillz and pwn some paddles.

Serious Kudos to the web team for excellent interactive design, tho. Happy April Fools~

Loved the April Fool’s home page story and game! I haven’t read a home page story in awhile, but that one really pulled me in! I wanted to join the electronic ping pong club, though I wasn’t sure what it was. Great job Web Team!

is there a ping pong club?

x by Luis 1 year ago

I don’t think there is a ping pong club, but there should be! There is now a ping pong table available in the Sylvania HT building, first floor by the vending machines. You can get paddles and ball from the Issue Room.

Someone scored 34 points? I am calling shenanigans!

I am a professional PONG player and my top was 11.

I demand a recount!
