The Black Student Union will host a Valentine’s-themed dance in the Student Union Cafeteria Feb. 15. The BSU will pay 40 percent of proceeds to the Vera Allen Jones Scholarship and another 40 percent to the Alaska United Negro College Fund, which provides scholarships to all students of color, not just black students.
Black Student Union decided to donate to these charities in support of higher education for all.
Pre-sale tickets for the dance are $8 for students and $10 for guests. Tickets sold after Feb. 14 will be $10 for students and $20 for guests. The dance will take place Feb. 15 from 8 p.m.-1 a.m. in the Student Union Cafeteria. The dance has a semi-formal dress code and BSU asks that students not wear sweats, t-shirts or sneakers. There will be food at the event.
