CSU Shines at 2015 Bud Billiken Parade

Chicago State University prides itself on being a beacon of education for the communities on the south side, and once again CSU showed up in style to the 2015 Bud Billiken Parade.

Bud Billiken is the oldest and largest African American parade in the United States. Since 1929, it has always been held on the second Saturday in August.The idea for the parade came from Robert S. Abbott, the founder of the Chicago Defender. It is now the second largest annual parade in the United States.The focus of the parade is on educating Chicago's youth.

CSU was represented at the parade by over 100 students, alumni, faculty and staff from all five colleges. Student athletes dressed in their uniforms, student leaders in their bright green blazers, pharmacy students in their lab coats and our beloved Cougar mascot all drew big cheers from the crowd. Thank you to all the members of the CSU family who participated!
