Black Association of Students (BLAST)

The purpose of BLAST is to promote and sustain an atmosphere that is conducive to the political, cultural, social, spiritual, economic, and educational growth of students of African descent and the college community at-large. Such an atmosphere can be best achieved and sustained through the pursuit and dissemination of knowledge, cultural programming, pro-active leadership, and co-operation within the Black community.

BLAST coordinates social activities and strengthens the bonds between students in the multicultural community, with an emphasis on African American Students. The Black Students Association does not discriminate against race, creed, religion, gender, or sexuality, and welcomes all.
