Black Student Union

The Black Student Union serves as a forum for communication amongst diverse students and faculty. Through discussions and guest speakers, Black Student Union hopes to involve the community in its efforts to attain respect for cultural diversity and peaceful coexistence, in the interests of Iona students, concentrating on the Black/African-American community.

Come and enjoy our meetings every other Thursday at Noon as we discuss diversity here at Iona. We plan exciting events for the upcoming year such as our Maroon Madness After Party, Fright Fest at Six Flags and Black History Month. We also participate in community service projects as well as panel discussions about things on campus that affect our daily routines.

Remember, DIVERSITY isnt only about color but about everything that makes you DIFFERENT. So if you know that you are different, Black Student Union is the place to be.

Black Student Union encourages unity, inspires leadership, and asserts dignity. If you want to represent culture, meet new people with unique ideas and have fun, Black Student Union is the place to be.
