BSU (Black Student Union)

Welcome to the Black Student Union

Promoting Unity through Diversity



The Santa Maria High BSU is a part of the United Black Student Union of California - Southern Region.  The goals of the BSU are to promote the black culture, cultivate leadership, to encourage young adults to make meaningful contributions to the community, and to aid these students in preparing for college and careers. The United Black Student Unions of California has a 45 year history of providing leadership and motivational activities for high school students in Northern, Central, and Southern California regions.  High school Black Student Unions send student delegations to highlight their BSUs through learning about college admission, political and social trends, networking, and personal, academic, and character development.

BSU meets bimonthly during lunch in the College and Career Center.
