Hilbert College’s Black Student Union and Multi-Cultural Student Association Club, ran by Tyshawn Jones and Adrionna Wright are always promoting equality on campus. The clubs have an emphasis on acceptance while welcoming students of all races and ethnicities.
On a college campus, there are many different cultures and some students may feel that they struggle to fit in. BSU/MSA Club attempts to bridge that gap on Hilbert’s campus. “Who doesn’t want to feel comfortable and see things change on campus” Jones said. “The club is all about promoting and educating people on history and cultures.”
Jones and Wright said they plan to hold events students can look forward to on campus this semester. A potential movie night and guest speaker are in the works. Both Jones and Wright, made it clear that they’re always open to any suggestions. The clubs emphasis is on equality, making anyone welcome and all ideas are to be considered.
“It’s important to learn about other people; where they’re from, where they grew up,” Wright added. Although it hasn’t been confirmed yet, they club plans to meet again in about two weeks, while the first event is estimated for the end of March. Stay tuned for postings on meeting times and events.
