Government Association cabinet and the 2600 + students at WSSU.
Activities at WSSU
by Carolyn Gloss
It is a necessary part of a student’s educa
tion to develop their leadership ability,
social skills and personality. Students must
broaden their interests and be inspired to
make worthy use of their leisure time.
Winston-Salem State University has pro
vided a variety of clubs and organizations to
accommodate the needs of their students.
These clubs and organizations sponsor pro
grams, projects, socials and other activities
that the students will find interesting.
Below is a list of organizations that the
students are encouraged to pursue accor
ding to their interests:
1. Student Government Association
2. Dormitory Councils
3. Class Organizations
Frankie Beverly &
4. General Organizations
5. Departmental Organizations
6. Greek-Letter Organizations
(1) Pan-Hellanic Council
7. Honor Societies
9. Religious Organizations
10. Alumni Association
Like the majority of all clubs and
organizations, there are certain re
quirements that must be fulfilled. Some of
the clubs and organizations are governed by
the university’s requirements, other set
their own standards.
It is very important for the students to
keep a proper balance between their studies
and extra-curricular activities. A student
should not become so absorbed with club
and organizational activities that his grade
point average drops below a 2.00, which is
the university standard.
WSSU Students Receive
Dear Students, Alumni and Friends;
Homecoming is unparalled for its excite
ment and nostalgia. As we celebrate and
bask in today’s glory and dreams for tomor
row, we reflect on what used to be. At
Winston-Salem State University, we are for
tunate to have current activities that spark
inspiration and a past that elicits pleasant
Isn’t it amazing how invigorating
homecoming is? When the spirit lags and
the energy flags, homecoming can revive us
to a level that pervades the campus for
weeks. It serves to rejuvenate us for the re
mainder of the semester.
I encourage you to enjoy homecoming. It
is one of those events with which you will
compare each subsequent occurence. And
somehow, each homecoming seems to be
better than the last. Homecoming 1986 won’t
change that trend!
