Block party kicks off HBCU Week
Sep 21, 2015
Monday, Sept. 21, officially started Claflin University’s HBCU Week.
The first event was a local block party on High Rise Court hosted by the Student Activities Board. The party was open to all students and locals.
The purpose of HBCU Week and the block party is to bring students together -- and the events help as stress relievers from classes.
“It’s always great to have a big venue where all the students can gather and just relax and have fun,” senior Terryn Parker said.
The rest of the week’s festivities included events such as Movie Night and an ice cream social, Power Hour, Free Style Comedy Show and social forums.
