The Black Student Alliance (BSA) promotes unity and diversity, uplifts and supports culture, and provides support for black students. We help students with adjustments they may face in a college environment. We represent and protect the interests of black students on campus as well as the surrounding community. We hope to increase awareness of black student contributions, issues and ideas. The Lambda Alliance: an organization that encourages the acceptance of sexual diversity, offers a safe environment to discuss issues involving sexuality, and educates people about different sexual orientations. We work hard to alleviate fears and prejudices. We offer a concentration in Latin American & Caribbean studies – Because there’s a surprising lack of knowledge in the United States about this dynamic region, understanding its culture is important for our community.
