'gami is a brand new club on Northwestern's campus that aims to be a fun, social, and stress-free environment where students can learn the art of paper folding, origami. Origami began in Japanese culture as a religious ceremonial activity, and turned into an enjoyable recreational practice that has been proven to boost mindfulness and enhance creativity. The club seeks to teach students origami in a laid-back setting where club members can meet new people and take a break from stressful classes each week. No experience required.
Practice the art of paper folding in a fun and stress-free environment.
