This afternoon, the Black Cultural Center invites students, faculty, staff and the OSU community to celebrate the legacy of the Lonnie B. Harris Black Cultural Center as they break the ground of its new building! Construction is set to start this summer and be completed by June 2014. Today’s program includes a poetry reading, singing the Black National Anthem, guest speakers Dr. Larry Roper and President Ed Ray along with a histroical tour of the current BCC and refreshments.
The original Black Student Union Cultural Center was founded at OSU in 1975 and later renamed the Lonnie B. Harris Black Cultural Center. This project for a new center is in line with new facilities for other cultural centers on campus. The grand opening of the Eena Haws Native American Longhouse was held last month and the Centro Cultural Cesar Chavez begins construction this week, expected to be completed in December 2013. A new home for the Asian & Pacific Cultural Center is also in the works.
See you there!

We had a great opportunity to attend the grand opening of the new Native American Long House Friday May 17th. The building is named Eena Haws, or "Beaver House" in Chinook. The new building is located just south of the original Longhouse that was first utilized by students in 1971.
The new Longhouse, designed by Seattle architectural firm Jones & Jones, replaces a World War II-era Quonset hut.
The new structure reflects the shape and style of a traditional Oregon Coast longhouse while respecting the multiple tribal cultures represented at OSU. It was designed and developed in collaboration with Native students at OSU, who provided input and had decision-making roles throughout the entire process.
The Eena Haws provides a great place for students to feel at home, while away from home and is also the first of the cultural centers to reopen their doors in the remodel project.

From the Daily Barometer:
Oregon State University’s National Pan-Hellenic Council, consisting of nine fraternities and sororities commonly known as the Divine 9, hosted a series of awareness and community-oriented events this week as part of its annual Greek Week titled, “Old School Flava, New School Twists.”
The week’s events will conclude Saturday as members from these historically black Greek-letter fraternities and sororities compete in the biggest showdown of its kind on the West Coast.
Old school steps will meet new school twists on Saturday as the OSU Divine 9 compete in the 11th annual D9 Step Show. The event will take place at the LaSells Stewart Center beginning at 3:30 p.m., and pre-sale tickets can be purchased for $8 from Student Leadership and Involvement Services located in Snell Hall.
Tickets will also be on sale the day of the event for $10 each.
Teams will be performing routines under the theme “School Daze,” the 1988 musical-drama film directed by Spike Lee, with the goal of providing awareness of the black Greek fraternity and sorority system. Each group will compete by stepping a form of South African Boot Dance that is traditionally done in times of triumph, celebration and war.
A complimentary barbecue lunch will be served for attendees from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., and doors for the show will open immediately after.
The show will be hosted by the OSU Black Student Union, sponsored by Student Events and Activities Center and funded by Educational Activities.

This Saturday, May 18th, marks the annual OSU Community Day of Service, where Beavers across the nation will show their Beaver Nation spirit and volunteer in their communities. Brian Collins, a volunteer in Washington, D.C. said:
In addition to helping with many important community needs, Day of Service is a chance for Beaver alumni to reconnect with their fellow Oregon Staters wherever they live.
There are many projects that will be happening on Saturday across the nation. Included in those projects is a joint project between OSU and UO, where student athletes from both universities will be working on a Habitat for Humanity Build in Philomath, OR. Other projects include clean-ups at a zoo, working with foster care homes, trail clean-ups and working on community parks.
