The Collegiate 100 Women of SU took over the Yard last week for their student focused activities. The women centric events were selected because they catered to the organization’s audience.
They kicked off the week with The Glam Center Monday evening at the event center. Breshatta Davis, founder of Pretty Girl Talk and a 2019 graduate of SULC, connected with C100 Women to host their most popular event with over 450 attendees and 40 female entrepreneurs. Davis, “I had initially reached out to the First Year Experience, but I connected with C100 Women in October and they fit my all-women target audience better. As a two-time graduate my heart’s desire was to sow in to where my roots are and enhance the self love, Black Girl Magic, and entrepreneurship at my alma mater. I found a need and really wanted to help enhance the way that the women of Southern presented themselves.”
Above attendance, Davis is most proud of the $1500 in scholarships awarded. Tiffany Foxworth- Robert’s campaign contributed $750, Dr. Leah S Collins’ campaign $200, Pretty Girl talk $350.
Tuesday, C100 along with Alpha Tau hosted Welcome to the Jungle. Featuring Zacheus Johnson M.Ed, Southern’s Executive Director of First and Second Years programs the event focused on time management.
Wednesday the ladies hosted Pretty Wednesday at Smith and Brown Memorial union. While the events were in full swing; Sydney Tatum, a junior nursing major, “I had no idea that it was C100s week.”
Thursday, the women of C100 hosted dual events. Sis We Got You, an event from 12-2pm consisted of goodie bags of personal items and snacks that were given in the lobby of the student union. The items were oriented towards self care and included makeup remover wipes and sleep masks. From 7pm-9pm the Royal Court co-hosted a dance event with Special guest Moe Campbell. Women interested in dance met at the Horace W. Moody intramural gym and were taught a fast-paced hip hop routine by professional dancer and choreographer Campbell.
Ariel Briggs, c-100s president and senior computer science major, “We chose Studio 100 because the campus is full of dancers, and C100 wanted to bring something of interest to the women of Southern.”
The week closed out with a community service event at Ryan Elementary. Girls Day In was an exclusive bonding and service event for members and Ryan Elementary’s female 5th grade class.
Briggs, “ Our organization’s motivation was to bring back elements of classy glam. We revamped events that had previously been popular and brought them back with a twist“
