Black Student Union hosted a field day of sports and games during lunch

Black Student Union (BSU) hosted a field day for students to play football and soccer,  jump rope, and eat ice pops during lunch Wednesday, Feb. 21. Field Day was the second day of BSU’s Spirit Week, with students wearing sports jerseys to celebrate.


 “We just wanted to foster a good time here on campus, enjoying the beautiful weather.”

– BSU co-president and communications senior Jasmine Mullings 


“Everybody can bond over something. Whether you like to play football, soccer, whatever you want to do, there’s somebody here that wants to do it with you, and you can bond with them that way.”

– digital media junior Tyson Jimerson


“It’s just a celebration of unity and diversity. Just a time (for students) to hang out with friends and just be proud of their culture.”

– BSU sponsor and assistant principal Teneisha Finney


“We all get to come together as one and hang out and have a great time and play a little game of football and all the different activities that we got out here.”

– theatre junior George Bostic


“I’m excited to be out here spending time with other African American kids in a school where it is predominantly white, out here having a good time eating popsicles and throwing around the football.”

– dance freshman Mason Hart


“I really like field day, just because it’s a time for us to honor all the black people that do sports. Especially since the sports industry is very popular in our culture, and I love seeing everyone playing the games.”

– BSU co-community outreach officer and vocal sophomore Musiq Williams


“The one thing I’m really excited about for Field Day is just seeing everyone coming together. It’s not only just one culture, it’s coming from multiple cultures from all around the school and they’re coming together and having a really good time.”

– communications freshman Miya McKenzie


“I’m excited to hang out with all my friends, eat all the popsicles that everybody’s eating, and, obviously, play all the sports, especially some jump roping.”

– communications sophomore Sanjit Gupta


‘I’m really excited for my black brothers, my black sisters, coming together, and people that aren’t my black brothers or my black sisters. Everybody’s coming together united.”

– strings junior Christian Onyewumbu


“I’m most excited to beat some people in cornhole, because nobody here can hold me. I’m the best here.”

– digital media sophomore Joseph Floreal


“I really love that everyone can genuinely just come together, play sports, be out in the sun, get that vitamin D, and just do what they love and try something new possibly.”

– vocal freshman Miley Bhagwandeen


“Honestly, I feel like this is an actual chance for me to interact with people I’ve never met before. I get to see part of what Dreyfoos is really about, and I get a chance to express myself and play some of my favorite games.”

– communications freshman Daniel Marshall


“I liked how everyone was out here and got to play games. It was a big, really good game of football honestly. I felt like we were in the Super Bowl out there.”

– vocal sophomore Daniel Jones
