The College of Liberal Arts and Behavioral Sciences (COLABS) is one of the oldest colleges at Texas Southern University. It has been in existence since the 1940s. Through the decades, COLABS has educated thousands of students-- many of whom have gone on to distinguish themselves locally, nationally, and internationally. We are very proud of that history and deep tradition.
On Saturday, April 7, 2018, seven TSU voice majors competed in the Greater Houston NATS Classical Vocal Competition at the University of Houston Moores School of Music. These students were: Skylar Gordon, Andrew Harrison, Ashton Jones, Breanna Lindsey, Kayse Musse, Elliot Sam, and Enrique Solis, all accompanied by Dr. Lucian Zidaru. This was the very first collegiate competition for most singers and all scores averaged in the mid-80s to mid-90s, with a few being one point shy of competing in the final round. Congratulations to winners, Breanna Lindsey, 2nd place (studio of Dr. Gwendolyn Alfred), Kayse Musse, 3rd place (studio of Dr. Jason Oby) and Skylar Gordon, semi-finalist (studio of Dr. Gwendolyn Alfred). We are TSU proud of all of these talented music students!
On Wednesday, April 4, 2018, three panels made up of university-wide TSU undergraduate and graduate students will present their original research studying African and African American Literatures at the Annual Gender Conference of the University of Houston Downtown, from 1:30-5: 00pm . Each year for the past twelve years, one or two panels of TSU students have presented and/or submitted for awards and publication their research about African and Diaspora Literatures, at conferences held regionally or throughout the nation. This year, professionally dressed TSU students are representing their university on three full panels at UHD's increasingly popular venue--this year's "Resist and Persist!" Gender Conference.
