By sending the short clip to possible future students, the BSM group hopes that through congratulating and welcoming potential students, black students will enroll already knowing they have a community supporting them. Aaron Epps, the president of the organization, worked with the campus admissions team to make this initiative a reality.
"This video fits in a theme to enroll, retain, work with, and to provide that community," Epps told MTVU Stories. "The campus is 70% white, of course, our community is smaller, but we are close-knit. We want incoming students to know that they can succeed," Epps said.
The group is also working on a number of other motions that foster and celebrate diversity on the UNC campus. Actions such as this one are creating an academic environment that is welcoming to every student.
