Madison Students Attend SDSU Conference

Earlier in November, Madison's Black Student Union (BSU) attended the annual Afrikan Student Union Conference at San Diego State University. Hundreds of Black Students from both San Diego and Los Angeles County attended to experience keynote speeches and interactive workshops. Topics included female empowerment, the process for completing college applications, and conversations about being Black in America. The historically Black Sororities and Fraternities performed after explaining their core principles of excellence. The field trip was a collaboration with Broadcast Journalism and Madison's BSU.
