Our meetings can go anywhere from a fun laid back meeting to a very serious and even emotional meeting. Some of our annual meetings include our alumni night where we invite past B2B alums to join our meeting and speak to our current group of B2B members and talk about life while they were on campus and life after. We also have our annual pillow talk meeting where we all come together to have a fun night and speak about sex, sexual stigmas, double standards, etc. B2B has incorporated game night meetings last semester where there’s the option to play countless card games, listen to music, and have snacks, we also had ps4 and Xbox consoles present. Some of our annual events are our Halloween party, back to school bash, and in the spring, our annual 3v3 tournament. As said prior, we welcome everyone with respect and open arms and as the years go by, we grow to be an even bigger, stronger family. B2B hope’s to see you all this next up and coming year!
