ALANA Consortium BBQ

The ALANA Consortium Support Network, established in August of 1999, is an organization of professional administrators affiliated with colleges and universities within central Massachusetts.
Central to their work is a concerted effort to support the recruitment and retention of ALANA (African - Latino / Hispanic - Asian - Native American) students. The Network is a thriving organization with active representatives from Anna Maria College, Assumption College, Clark University, College of the Holy Cross, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and Worcester State College.

The annual ALANA Consortium BBQ is an opportunity for students to meet and dialogue. This year’s BBQ was held at Clark University and it was a great success as there were over 100 students in attendance from the various consortium colleges. Students listened to music as there was a live DJ at the BBQ, and they also had a chance to win different prizes through the raffle.

All in all, this year’s ALANA Consortium BBQ was a great success.
