Black Togetherness Organization

The Black Togetherness Organization (BTO) works to empower Southern Illinois University Carbondale students living in the residence halls by providing opportunities that develop leadership and life-long skills. BTO plans and implements activities focusing on academics; cultures; and educational, political, recreational and social areas. BTO also co-sponsors programs with other campus Registered Student Organizations.

The Black Togetherness Organization provides many activities for students within the halls, including:

  • Kwanzaa Fest
  • Ice cream socials
  • Game nights
  • Spring cultural festival

Watch for postings or flyers in your halls or visit the BTO office on Grinnell lower level for more information or contact the Education & Outreach Office at 618/453-7535.
