Why join the BSCAA?
Your support allows us to connect alumni with current members and each other through events, giving, and meaningful collaboration with local partners. In becoming a member, you’ll join a diverse community of people who lived, worked, and learned together in the BSC–just because we moved out of the co-ops doesn’t mean we’ll ever move on! We love the BSC, and we love our alumni.
Being a member also ensures you’ll be informed and involved, and have access to exclusive events and opportunities–you’ll receive periodic email updates so that you can stay connected and up to date. Perhaps most importantly, becoming a BSCAA member helps ensure that the BSC can continue to serve generations of future students, supporting its mission to provide affordable housing and make higher education more accessible. Donations from our board of directors cover our administrative program expenses, so your membership dues directly contribute to our student and alumni programming and financial support.
In the past couple years, our membership has successfully:
- Donated tens of thousands of dollars to support the BSC and those impacted by COVID-19
- Created a fund to offer bail to students arrested for ICE-related offenses
- Hosted a series of virtual skill-shares showcasing local cooperatives
- Divested our funds from fossil fuel companies & adopted a responsible investment policy
- Prioritized our explicit commitments to diversity and accessibility
- Provided care packages to students during finals, and groceries to those in quarantine
- Explored ways to support students and alumni in acts of civil disobedience during unprecedented times of societal revolution
