Belmont’s Black Student Association is hosting its annual BSA Week — and there’s a lot planned for everyone, not just current BSA members.
“BSA puts on BSA Week as a fun way to show our members we appreciate them,” said BSA President Jeremy Capps.
BSA has already led a chapel service and hosted a game night, but the events don’t stop there.
At Friday’s 10 a.m. general meeting, BSA will hold its officer elections. On Sunday, it welcomes those officers with its BSA banquet.
Next week, BSA has Display Live, a tribute showcase featuring local performers, planned on April 6 at 8 p.m. inside the Massey Performing Arts Center.
On April 7, it is hosting its annual BSA cookout at 4:30 p.m.
“Annual events like the cookout and BSA banquet are always highly anticipated and usually our most popular events,” Capps said.
Every Belmont student is invited to all BSA events — even the general meetings, Capp said. The tribute show, he hopes, will attract a lot of students.
“We would love to have as many people there as possible since the space is so big,” Capps said.
All of this is an effort to show appreciation for current members and to recognize what BSA is doing for Belmont’s campus, said Capps.
“We value and uplift the diversity of students who often feel overlooked,” Capps said. “With the help of my incredible officer team and our future officers, I hope BSA will continue to model an environment of inclusion while remaining at the forefront of Belmont’s diversity efforts.”
