A night filled with harmony and unity, and not to mention fun. This description matches the events that took place on Tuesday, as the Brothers Forum and African American Student Alliance, with help from the Institute for Multicultural Research and Campus Diversity, held Fun Night in the Student Center.

Students gathered to celebrate February being African-American History Month.

"This event will give students a chance to get to know each other better in a series of events that represents Black History Month," said Lydell Willis, vice president of the Brothers Forum.

Fun Night included activities that students could participate in. Music, dominos, card games such as spades, and videos showing on the Student Center television were part of the festivities. Also there was a Black History Trivia game and the winner received a $30 gift certificate to Best Buy.

"We just wanted to have a night where students could gather and hang out and have a break from studying," said Falone Serna, president of the Brothers Forum.

Approximately 30 students turned out at the event. AASA President, junior Mia Moore, said that the turnout was more than expected.

"We were trying to set a foundation for AASA to have events all year round especially in February, in the future," said Moore.
