The Dinner is open to all BAS supporters, including alumni, students, faculty, and allies (no BYU affiliation necessary). The program includes a three-course seated dinner, remarks from this year’s BAS Scholarship recipients, a musical performance, and a keynote address. Attire is business or cocktail.

In 2019, for the third consecutive year, the BAS participated in BYU-Provo’s New Student Orientation activities as a way to welcome new and returning Black students to a new school year. In August 2019, the BAS hosted a booth at the First-Year Fair, as well as a Student-Alumni Mixer.
The BAS and BSU hosted a Virtual Black Graduation! We enjoyed opening and closing remarks from BAS members, a presentation from the BSU president, a keynote address, and individual presentations and comments by each Black 2020 graduate.
On Saturday, April 27, Black Student Union members held a Black Graduation ceremony for them and their families. The Black Graduation program included a musical number, Kente stole ceremony, poem performance, slideshow, and keynote address. We are so proud of the graduates for organizing this great event!
