Black Student Union promotes unity

By Bria Hall, Staff Writer

The Black Student Union is one of the amazing clubs available at MCC.

The mission of the BSU according to vice president Hannah Agboola is “striving to unite and educate students of African descent about their cultural heritage, and by doing that we promote community service and stress academic excellence and develop students into active leaders in the struggle for Black Liberation.”

The group meets in the Student Success Center on Wednesdays from 12-1 p.m. In these meetings, they discuss future events, fundraisers, and volunteering planned for throughout the semester. Their first fundraiser was on September 11th, where they sold cider donuts to raise money to attend the Black Student Union Conference in November.

Also in the meetings, they discuss academic excellence, one of the club’s core values, and help any members who need academic assistance. They also have contests to keep members engaged.

Anyone can join the Black Student Union, by going to meetings, fundraisers or events. Even if you have a busy class schedule you can volunteer services to future events. If you have any questions, stop by the meetings at the Student Success Center, or  contact Hannah Agboola at [email protected]
