The Elmira College Black Student Union invites the community to the “F.U.B.U.” (For Us By Us) event featuring local businesses on Wednesday, March 1 at 5:30 p.m. in Tifft Lounge, located inside the Campus Center. 

This marketplace event features products for sale from more than 11 locally owned and operated businesses from the Elmira-area, including:

“We hope to show Elmira College students, as well as the surrounding community, what opportunities and resources are available to them,” said Morganne Bethel, a senior and member of the Black Student Union. 

“We also hope that by having this event, students will become more empowered to start their own businesses or to simply follow their dreams.”

In addition to the local business, the event features raffles and is free to the public.
