Northeastern University's Multicultural Organization
Our purpose is to educate and support those on the Northeastern campus who identify and/or associate with the multicultural community as one defines it.
We haven't been able to touch base in a little while I hope everyone is doing well. March is a busy month for us so I wanted to update everyone on the happenings for Nu Mix in the coming weeks.
First and foremost, next week is the start of non-violence week at Northeastern. To partake in this event we will hold a regular meeting on Monday, March 14th, where we will have activities and discussions based around this touchy topic (violence) among different cultures. More info to come as the date approaches.
Second, we are partnering up with Nu Pride at their full body meeting next week! We are very excited to be working with them and they are beyond exciting to work with us. This is going to be a really great collaboration. We are planning to join them in their meetingThursday, March 17th, more information in terms of the time and location will come out later this week, so stay tuned!!
Third, as some of you are aware the Museum of Science is hosting a new exhibit for the next couple of weeks. The exhibit is called Race: Are we so different? Please visithttp://www.smm.org/race/ to check it out. We will be distrubuting sign up sheets in our next couple of meetings so we can get an idea of how interested everyone is in going. We feel that this will be a great opportunity for all of us. We are planning to attend onSunday, March 20th, and perhaps grab some ice cream after! More information to follow.
Fourth, the HAPA SWAYA conference is coming up!! For those of you who do not know what this is please check out this website: http://www.hcs.harvard.edu/harvardhapa/swaya/ This is a great opportunity for us to go and collaborate with others. A few of the eboard members attended last year and absolutely loved the event. We will also be providing sign up sheets for this event so that we can perhaps collaborate with each other and head over to Harvard together. The dates for the conference are Friday March 25th and Saturday March 26th. Registration is required but of course we will be covering this in the next meeting.
Fifth (yes fifth) we are also collaborating with CVSA this semester!!! We will be attending their general body meeting in the Cabral Center in the African American Institute onTuesday, March 29th at 6pm for discussions and games based around multiculturalism. We are SO excited for this event and you should be too. CVSA is a great student group on campus and they can truly help us out in terms of making our group more recognized on campus!
So be sure to mark your calendars for all of the dates that I just threw at you. I understand that it is a lot, but do not friend my friends because we will be constantly updating you and reminding you of EVERYTHING!
Good luck with everyone and we look forward to seeing you all on Monday at 6pm!!
