On Wednesday, March 14, the Black Student Union and the Center for Student Involvement will be hosting “Black Greek 101.”
The event is an informational conference about historically African American fraternities and sororities. It is a free event, and participants should go to the Redwood Auditorium in the EMU at 6 p.m.
The BSU holds cultural and social activities throughout the year that are offered to the whole University of Oregon community.
“Through these events, the BSU provides opportunities for students to develop leadership skills, a stimulating learning environment, and cultural awareness,” according to the BSU’s OrgSync page.
According to the event flyer, there will be a Q&A session with BSU members, gift cards that are raffled off and light snacks provided.
This event comes recently after the BSU, among other organizations, was invited to give their opinions on the university multicultural requirement.
On March 2, UO invited the BSU, the Black Student Task Force and the UO Black Women of Achievement organizations to a discussion panel about the changes being made to the multicultural requirement.
This is the first time since 1994 that the multicultural requirement will be updated at UO since 1994. The university invited these organizations to hear their feedback on what they would like to see more of from the requirement.
