In next week's Student Life Program the upperclassmen will discuss Bullying and Hazing and focus on how they can be a part of breaking cycles of peer abuse in school and beyond.
This Thursday evening, in honor of the life and work of actor Chadwick Boseman, we will be screening Marvel's Black Panther for our 1504 students.
