Enigma at UCLA

The Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Gaming Club at UCLA

Enigma includes everyone from undergrads to graduate students and alumni, encompassing every department from both South Campus and North Campus. If you're interested in science fiction or fantasy (whether books, art, or film), or gaming (video games, card games, board games, roleplaying games, etc.), even just a bit, you're always welcome with us.

All Enigma meetings on UCLA's campus are open to the public and are free of charge. There is no formal membership, so drop by any time! Students, staff, faculty, and local community members are all welcome.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does Enigma have a code of conduct?

Yes. Although it's really just an elaboration of simple decency, please don't hesitate to let an officer know if you have any specific questions or concerns.

Q: What goes on in a typical weekly meeting?

All meetings include two parts: Announcements (general business plus any news of interest), followed by the night's official activity for the rest of the evening. Activities vary from week to week. You can check them out on our Events page! Though not an official part of meetings, we often get food at Late Night on the Hill after meetings as well.

Q: Do I have to attend every meeting?

Of course not, attendance is entirely up to you and your schedule. That being said, we'd love to see you at any meeting you can make it to, and we have a whole lot of fun every week, so stop by if you can!

Q: Do I have to stay for the entire meeting?

Not at all. Feel free to take off early if you have other obligations, or need to head home to catch up on sleep. You can even just drop in to say hi. We're happy to have you for as long or as little as you feel comfortable. 

Q: Are there club fees?

Nope! None whatsoever. Although there may be the occasional paid side-event, regular meetings are always free admission.  

Q: Do I have to be an undergraduate to come to meetings?

Enigma has no restrictions based on student status. Students, alumni, staff, faculty, and local community members are welcome. As long as you love sci-fi, fantasy, and/or games, we're happy to have you!
