BSA holds membership drive

The Black Student Association ended its three day membership drive Thursday by inviting everyone out for free barbecue.

“The membership drive was very successful. We have over 100 active members this year. The BSA barbecue was a way of saying thank you to all the students and faculty who helped to make our membership drive a success,” said BSA President Anthony Broussard, a senior Bachelor of University Studies major from Covington, Tennessee.

The barbeque was a time for BSA members and others to interact with one another, enjoy a variety of music, and get a brief look at some of what BSA has in store for the year.

Broussard says that he is very excited about the school year and that BSA has many more things to present to the campus.

“Membership is still available by going to the BSA office (during office hours),” said Broussard.

BSA will have its first general meeting at 6:30 p.m. tonight. Two guest speakers will be present. Freda Player and Jerry Maynard will be speaking to members about the importance of voting.

BSA is in the process of developing a mentor program as well as co-sponsoring a Voter Registration Drive with the Student Government Association and Multicultural Affairs.

“Our goal is to get 1000 nonregistered voters to become active and vote.” said Broussard. He encourages everyone to get to the polls and let your voice to be heard.
