BSU Overnight

SPACES has partnered with the Black Student Union (BSU) and the Black Resource Center (BRC) to offer a unique opportunity for those interested in connecting with the Black UC San Diego community. Students will participate in a variety of activities that include a Biological Sciences Lab Tour, Visual Arts/ Theatre and Dance Tour, Social Sciences Lecture, interaction with faculty members, campus tour, and social activities which emphasize the Black experience. In addition, students will attend a community dinner which brings together campus administrators, faculty members, staff members, current students and leaders in the San Diego Black community for an opportunity to network while learning more about the university.

Students will interact with members of the Black Student Union (BSU), National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), African Student Association (ASA), Black Campus Ministries (BCM), Black Graduate Student Association, Queer and Trans People of Color (QTPOC), and Black Greek Letter Organizations. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in joint activities with the SIAPS and JSOE tracks.
