The Black Student Association (BSA) would like to invite students to come and partake in a Meet & Greet event on Wednesday, Jan. 30. Attendees will get to meet new people and current members, participate in an Uno tournament for a chance to win gift cards, enjoy free food, and learn more about the causes that the BSA gets involved in.
“The Meet & Greet is basically to help draw in new people and help them get familiar with everything we’ve done from the past to present,” said President of the BSA, Anthony Brown. “We want to let new incoming African American students know that there is an organization meant for them.”
The event will be held from noon to 2 p.m. in the Underground Connection, below Reid Cafe.
“We’re also trying to focus on more problems that affect the black community and reach out to African American students to help them be the best that they can be,” said Brown. “We want to help them strive for better and strive for more.”
Students of other races are welcome to attend and join as well. While, the BSA directs most of their efforts towards the black community, they embrace those of all different backgrounds in order to make diversity and allyship commonplace among students.
More information about the event can be found by contacting the Advisor of the Black Student Association, Jared Hennings, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (618) 468-6400.
