Tomorrow marks the year’s kick-off party of the Black Organization of Students. The party will take place in the Diversity Center at 9:30 p.m. “We usually do this every year to invite the new members and the whole campus to come celebrate the beginning of BOS’s year,” said BOS vice president Taeya Abdel-Majeed.
The party will include food, a talent show, and a DJ, Abdel-Majeed told The Lawrentian.
Abdel-Majeed said that BOS “is trying as much as possible to make the campus more enlightened on cultural issues.” She added that “BOS is not just for black students–anybody and everybody should come.”
“In the past BOS has brought so many good things to the table, like cultural expression, and this year we’re trying to take the next step. We’re going to have things like panels discussing topics which affect us all.”
“We’re bringing some good speakers on campus [this year],” Abdel-Majeed said. “We want to discuss [these issues]; we want to make the campus aware of them.”
Abdel-Majeed pointed out that the BOS officers are “working really hard to make sure that BOS is reaching the goals that it has set for the year.” One of these goals, she said, is to “include the entire campus in moving forward towards diversity.
