In order to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Jacksonville State University hosted its annual Day of Unity in Leone Cole Auditorium. JSU’s Day of Unity is used to showcase the strength and unity of student organizations such as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (N.A.A.C.P.), Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, and even the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.
According to participants, this event is an absolute necessity to show students the highlights of the different student organizations available to those who may not know much about them.
“This event is needed since JSU is such a diversified campus. Also, with JSU being the friendliest campus in the South, this event is a perfect demonstration of both. We’re off to a great start!” Deonta Freeman said.
This event also featured a live Jazz band, free food and a diversity banner which was used to display what inspires each person that attended.
Taking part in this event provided students with a plethora of different organizations to obtain information from and potentially join in the coming future.
