UCF students are working to help Bernie Sanders become the next U.S. president with the Knights for Bernie club, slated to have its first meeting Tuesday.

Since the club became a registered student organization at the end of the summer, it has gathered 600 Facebook follows and registered almost 150 voters, according to a press release.

The goal of the first meeting is to familiarize students with the organization, while discussing the election and registering voters.

"We've been blown away by the level of support the club has gotten. Every time we set up a table, we get crowds of students eager to take part in the movement," club president Daniel Koster said in the release.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. in the Student Union, Room 218C.
