The BSCF Club is a social club open to all students that focuses on fellowship, entertainment, and getting involved. The club was originally founded upon a love and appreciation for African-American culture, and has diversified to represent and share in cultural activities and foods from around the world! Lead by a dedicated and hardworking team of individuals, the club has thrived throughout the years! With its many events such as BBQ's, Christmas parties, picnics, and more, the BSCF club is ideal for students who love to have fun and try new things, and even for those who normally have a hard time socializing with others.
