Congratulations to all new organizations!

Hi, I'm Kathy and I was a graduate assistant in the Office of Student Involvement and Leadership this past year. In my position I assisted many students create or reactivate new organizations. I would like to congratulate the following new organizations that established full recognition this year:

Earth Science Club (ESC)
The Libertarian Youth of Bridgewater State (LYB)
BSC Business Journal (Business Journal
Commuter Student Association
Middle Eastern Cultural Connection Association (MECCA)
Student Ant-Genocide Coalition (STAND)
Physics Club
Alternative Energy Information Sharing Club
Philosophy Club
Bridgewater State Democrats
Bridgewater State Republicans
Open Arms
Physical Education Majors Club (PE Club)
Bridgewater Billiards Club (BPC)
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Club (Biochem Club)
Universal Cuisine
Club Canada Club (CCC)
Bohemian Street Chanters (the B.S.C.)

These clubs have made a significant impact on the campus community already and will do great things in the coming years!

If you are interested in starting a new organization at Bridgewater State, get started as soon as you come back in the Fall 2009 semester. If you have an idea and at least 2 members, register your new organization on the Involvement Network following the link for New Club Registration. Here you will fill out the application for recognition and statement of purpose. You will then be contacted to come into OSIL and learn the rest of the process. If you have any questions, stop by OSIL. Have a happy and safe summer!

What a Weekend!

Hey Everyone!!

I hope you all had an amazing weekend!

Ryan Leslie came to campus this past Saturday! For those of you who don't know. Ryan Leslie is a graduate of Harvard, and after starting his career as a songwriter and producer he has now also become a recording artist. You may recognize some of his songs... Diamond Girl, Addiction and How it was Supposed to Be. Well, he was amazing! Thank you to the Class of 2011, MIB, Afro-Am, Cape-Verdean Association, La Sociadad Latina, United Caribean Culture Club and to SGA for funding it! Around 300 people were in attendence and Ryan Leslie had many of them singing and standing up to dance!

BSC's very own senior, Jerard "JRod" Rhoden opened for Ryan Leslie and he was also fantastic! People were standing in the aisles dancing to his beats. This young man has a lot of talent, and thank you to him for sharing it with the BSC community.

Tickets were free to BSC students, and $20 to any outside guests. If you missed this, I hope you take advantage of the upcoming events on campus! Remember, many of these events you have already paid for through your student activity fees. (That's where SGA gets the money to fund events.) So keep an eye out and pay attention to your student announcements!

Hang in there, BSC. It's almost summer!!
