Chicago State University Tour (100 BMC South & Westside)

The 100 BMC mentees, mentors and parents had the opportunity to partake in a private tour of THE Chicago State University. The staff pulled out all the stops as they dazzled their audience with everything the Southside institution has to offer in areas of academics, athletics and campus life.
The mentee's tour included CSU's new science labs, aquaponics facility and the library which is recognized as one of America's most progressive library facilities; it features the Automated Storage and Retrieval System called ROVER (Retrieval Online Via Electronic Robot) that can retrieve five books in 2.5 minutes.
University President and member of the 100 Black Men of Chicago, Wayne Watson, took time out of his busy schedule to speak with our group about CSU, it's mission and how an education from the Southside University will prepare its students for the workplace in the 21st Century.
