About & Mission Statement
The Multicultural Student Organization (MSO) is dedicated to celebrating the beauty of culture and diversity within a world of disappearing borders by engaging students in activities which embrace various cultural aspects of the student population, the community, and the world. The MSO encourages educational awareness among all people, not only by encouraging students to learn about cultural aspects of other people they may encounter, but also by encouraging students to embrace and share their own cultures.
The MSO attempts to provide information about available assistance for international students, supports foreign study for domestic students, acts as a liaison between the campus administration faculty and students: promotes programs and communication forums which bring social awareness to cultural similarities and differences among people: encourages the incorporation of multicultural issues and history within our educational system: and sponsors culturally based entertainment and events to bring the world to Big Sandy students in the eastern Kentucky region.
MSO also has a Regional and Cultural Diversity Center resource center in the student center 106. We welcome you to join us in the Regional and Cultural Diversity Center; there are computers for your use. Please remember to sign in when using the Regional and Cultural Diversity Center

The Philosophy Club seeks to provide a comfortable, informal environment in which philosophy students and fans can discuss big ideas without getting funny looks.
- Because you love talking about, thinking of, and being around philosophy
- Because you have great ideas but do not feel comfortable expressing them in front of a classroom.
- Because you want to meet peers who can challenge you intellectually and still be fun.
- Because you would like to impress others
