The Black Student Union welcomes you to the University of Florida. As an organization continually striving to make your stay at UF as rewarding as possible, we challenge you to get involved. This is an open invitation to become part of an organization that since its inception in 1968 has served as a voice and foundation for Black students.
Through the concerted efforts of BSU, the Black student population as well as the quality of Back faculty members have increased significantly. BSU was the driving force behind the development of the Institute of Black Culture (IBC), formation of the quality of life task force, hiring of minority affairs deans, and the list goes on. BSU sponsors numerous programs each year including Welcome Week in the Fall, BSU Kid's Day in the community, Homecoming activities, food drives, Black History Month Celebration, speakers, forums, and Umoja (unity) graduation celebrations each term for Black graduating seniors.
The past success of these programs and activities would not have been achieved without the unification and cooperation of Black students. In order for these accomplishments to continue, BSU needs leaders - leaders like you! We challenge you to actively support BSU as we unite to tackle common problems and share aspirations.
All Black students are members of the Black Student Union. Membership is open to all UF students. Active membership applications are free. BSU meets Thursdays at 6:00p.m. at the Institute of Black Culture (IBC).
There is nothing stopping you from becoming a contributing member to the Black Student Union. So why not get active-TODAY!
It's only B.S. without U!
