During the event, student attendees were encouraged to interact with club organizers in exchange for food and drinks.

WEST CAMPUS— Valencia College ended Black History month with an event outside of the SSB building in the courtyard on Thursday, Feb. 28. Valencia Volunteers helped students sign-up at the Student Development table in order to receive a free bag and a passport to the Black History Cultural Gala.

The bag contained eight signature boxes, which were to be signed by club members and vendors that stood in the courtyard in order to receive free food and cold drinks.

Visiting each table, students got to learn more about each club’s purpose and what they stood for. Prizes and goodies of all kinds were distributed to students just for visiting the table. Questions were asked, and answered by club members, giving students more knowledge on Black History month.

The food was catered by Chef Eddie’s; serving fried chicken, green beans, macaroni and cheese and fresh bread rolls.

“It’s been a really nice time, the students are just awesome,” said Bess Eddie, chef Eddie’s wife.

Later, students gathered for singing and dancing.

According to Valencia student Cleef Desir, the event was “pretty decent.”
