Happy New Year from the MRC!

The Multicultural Resource Center extends a warm welcome to our new transfer students arriving in a very cold January 2014 to Binghamton University. February kicks off our busiest semester as the month opens up with all the Black History Month festivities. The first MRC Student Leaders Meeting hosted more than 60 representatives of various cultural groups and more than 40 announcements for upcoming student programs. The MRC will continue to host our Diversity Talks this semester along with a series of workshops and trainings for faculty, staff and students. There are so many events and lots of ongoing programs to be apart of so stop by our office to learn more about how to get involved. The MRC has 12 interns, 3 graduate and 9 undergraduates this semester to service all our cultural student groups! Be on the lookout for them at your events and general body meetings. Check out the enclosed pages about great events going on this month!
