Rider Up

News & Events

University police are getting a leg up on patrolling campus. Make that four legs.

Thanks to an agreement with the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department, the university now has a part-time mounted police unit.

The horses are on campus as needed, for special events and to patrol the surrounding trails and other areas. The program will also serve as a community outreach tool. Meanwhile, plans call for BSU’s equestrian team to play a role in the program. (Video by students Travis Garlick and Yvana Osborne) 

'Keys' to the City

News & Events

Professor Emeritus Henry Santos put on a bravura demonstration for a near-capacity Horace Mann Auditorium audience, performing the music of three little-known composers.

“The Piano Recital of New Orleans Composers of Color” featured a selection of solo pieces composed by Basile Barès, Sidney Lambert and Lucien Lambert. The goal of the program was, in the words of Professor Santos, “to bring the music off the shelf and into the public domain.”
