Makuu serves as a cultural hub for campus and community activities, providing students, faculty and staff, alumni, and community partners with numerous meaningful opportunities to learn from one another. Makuu conducts a number of events each year including our Kwanzaa Dinner (December), Senior Awards Celebration (May), faculty and alumni talks, academic skills workshops, film screenings, student mixers, and more. Makuu also partners with other offices and centers across campus to co-sponsor a wide range of additional events. Finally, Makuu supports the various Umoja-affiliated student groups with their meetings and events.
The calendar below is managed by Umoja and Makuu, and lists the many events happening throughout the school year as well as important academic dates. Be sure to subscribe to Makuu’s weekly e-mail updates to receive notification about additional events and opportunities (internship and employment presentations, local conferences, scholarship and fellowship postings, new course announcements, ticket giveaways, and more!)
