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.
