You Beautiful Black Woman is composed of students from various backgrounds, for the purpose of unification through friendship, leadership, and scholarship. Through this process our mission is to make ourselves useful in assisting female students in their families, campus, and communities. We further believe that through educational. mental, physical, and social development, we will not only culturally enhance Ferris States' campus, but we will increase the societal awareness as well.
