Students from the Bishop Johnson Black Cultural Center visited Alabama this week in honor of Black History Month while Auburn traveled up from Alabama to take on the men’s basketball team. Our photographers were there every step of the way.

Celebrating Black history

Forty-eight students traveled down to Alabama last week to participate in the BCC’s Black History Immersion Excursion. This trip took the students to both Selma and Birmingham to visit museums focused on Black history and iconic sites related to Black history in America.

Upward momentum for the ‘Dores

Men’s basketball saw huge success this weekend after the team took down another SEC matchup, Auburn, for its fifth win in a row. The next day, the women’s basketball team celebrated senior night and beat Kentucky. The weekend also saw the women’s tennis team earn a win over UCF on Friday. The men’s tennis team played a doubleheader on Sunday against Belmont and OSU.

As flowers continue to bloom around campus, the construction across West End as the lot is cleared for an upcoming high-rise that will tower over Zeppos College. Fitz and the Tantrums also came to Nashville on Valentine’s Day.
