The Wolfpack chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has reactivated and will hold its first general body meeting next Tuesday.

Last semester, the chapter underwent a revitalization period, not taking in new members in order to focus on addressing internal needs. “You can’t invite people in from outside unless you know the inside is all cleaned up and ready to go,” said Lauryn Collier, in the Aug. 28 issue of the Nubian Message. Collier  became Interim President of the chapter over the summer, after the status of the organization was left undetermined.

During the fall semester, the chapter hosted fundraisers and programs during their Fall Revival Week, as well as teamed up with Young Invincibles for the Student Impact Project, an opportunity for students to learn about higher education affordability. This semester, Collier and other members look forward to sponsoring events that reflect the iniatives and mission of the national organization. The Wolfpack chapter also hopes to attract underclassmen students. “Many students involved with the chapter, including myself, are graduating seniors. The chapter is in need of leadership that can continue in the coming years,” said Collier.

The first NAACP general body meeting will be held Tues. Jan. 21 at 6:00 p.m. in SAS 1220. All students and faculty are welcome to attend.
