Student of Color Affinity Group

Being a person of color in a predominately white environment is a complex and often stressful experience.  The Student of Color (SoC) affinity group serves as a way to openly engage in dialogues around what it means to be a student of color on this campus. This group serves to increase the awareness of students to the fact that there are other individuals who share similar multicultural lived experiences.  The SoC ultimately serves as a resource for students of color to come together weekly in order to enhance their success at VU.
Monday 4pm-5pm, Sarratt Multicultural Lounge, Facilitator: Shelby Reyes
Tuesday 4pm-5pm, BCC Legacy Lounge, Facilitator: Erica Brice
