The largest program house on south campus is Lord-Saunders, also known as the Afrikan Heritage House. Approximately 80 students live in Lord-Saunders creating a family atmosphere that extends beyond the house and into the larger campus community. This modern building overlooking South Bowl is the center of activity for students who want to heighten their understanding of cultures, traditions, and issues among African, African American, and Afrikan Caribbean societies. Lord-Saunders is a designated safe space for residents and students of the African Diaspora.

This class was fun and very interactive. I liked that the Chef allowed us to participate "hands-on" and allowed us the flexibility to alter or change up the recipes a little to allow for creativity. Great job, Chef Kevin Chaney! I can't wait until the next cooking class in the series, on Feb. 21st at Stevenson!
