Cultural Connections is back!!!

The Center for Multicultural Advancement and Student Success will host its 6th Annual “Cultural Connections”  on Thursday, September 4th, 2014 in the Camps Center Auditorium from 6 P.M. to 9:30 P.M.

This annual First Week event is a collaborative effort between CMASS, CSD,  staff, current students, and alumni to highlight and support cultural diversity through student artistic expressions (music, song, dance, art work and poetry).

Our headliner is Aisha Fukushima, a self-proclaimed ‘RAPtivist’ (rap activist), a singer, public speaker, & educator. As leader of the ‘RAPtivism’ (rap activism) project, Aisha raises social awareness through connections between global hip hop & social justice. She has engaged in hip hop communities from France to Morocco, Kazakhstan, Japan, Germany, England, South Africa, Senegal, India and Denmark.

This vibrant event is free and open to the campus and general public as a celebration of our campus cultural plurality, our energetic connection to the community and as a means of welcoming new students.

Cultural Connections is one that is looked forward to during the First Week of the academic year by students, faculty, staff, administrators and the local surrounding campus community.

We  hope  you will join us at our 6th Annual Cultural Connections!
