Event Description

The time has come again! NKU’s Media Informatics group the NKU MINja’s are putting on their Childs Play event.

Other groups that will be aiding the MINja’s in this event are: Norse Code Radio, Norse Gaming Club, Norse League of Legends, Northern Kentucky: Table Top Club and NorseGameDev
