On Sept. 27, 2022, two West Chester University organizations known as Sisters United and Black Student Union hosted their first ever field day event that was located on the quad from 3-5 p.m. For those of you who may not know, Sisters United and Black Student Union are organizations on campus that have been around for over eight years. Sisters United’s key focus is on uplifting and empowering other women on campus to come together as one. In addition, Black Student Union is an organization on campus that focuses on educating the student body on African American culture and history from music to foods and different hair types. Therefore, these two organizations came together to create an impactful collaboration that brought the student body together collectively.
The reason for this event was to encourage students to come together, have a good time and get familiar with one another. It is significant to have student leaders and organizations on campus that take initiative to create types of events. These types of events are focused on encouraging students to strive to meet new people and use each other as resources on campus. The unity and support from different on campus organizations were great to see. They also provided fun activities like a water balloon fight, corn hole and Connect Four for students to play.
Overall, it was enjoyable to capture students having a good time and enjoying a break from schoolwork. It is important to put aside time to enjoy activities that fulfill you and bring you peace from an exhausting day of classes. Therefore, join Sisters United programs every Tuesday at 6 p.m. and follow their Instagram @sistersunitedwcupa for updates on upcoming programs and events. As for Black Student Union, join them every Wednesday at 7:15 p.m. and follow their Instagram @bsu1969. I highly suggest staying up to date with future events, trips and programs from these two organizations. You will not regret it!
