Feel like spinning fire for fun? Intrigued by the three-stringed sanshin or how to crack passwords in a cybersecurity league? 

With 91 registered student organizations available this year, it’s harder to find something you’re not interested in. 

Here are a few organizations that are slightly off the beaten path: 

Poi club
