Welcome to one of the largest, student-led clubs on Hamilton High School’s campus! We are glad you stopped by to visit! We invite you to take a look around and get familiar with our members, activities, and goals. You will quickly recognize that our BSU is constantly grooming leadership skills while encouraging academic success for African American students. In fact, everything we do promotes, celebrates, and embraces Black excellence!
In 2018 and 2019, Hamilton’s BSU was awarded “BSU of the Year” by the United Black Student Union of California (UBSUC) during the State Leadership Convention (unfortunately the 2020 convention was canceled). This honor was earned based on our dedication to leadership, student body, and community. Not only do we have dynamic BSU Officers representing our school campus, we also have Hamilton Officers elected into leadership roles at the Southern region and the State Leadership positions.
We hope you enjoy learning more about our club and consider joining us. Although we’re called Black Student Union, our BSU also welcomes students from all races and ethnic backgrounds.

“History shows that it does not matter who is in power or what revolutionary forces take over the government, those who have not learned to do for themselves and have to depend solely on others never obtain any more rights or privileges in the end than they had in the beginning.”
