The men of Xavier University of Louisiana (fondly known as XULA) has decided to take to social media and expressed their love for XULA.
Shortly after homecoming week kicked off on Sunday on campus at the black university, the hashtag #MenOfXavier started trending on Twitter, with tweet after tweet setting the tone for this homecoming week.
Twitter user Jeffrey Ugwuanyi (@), who originally planned the mass photo shoot, told HBCU Buzz that he started the hashtag because “the black male representation on campus [XULA] is very small, we’re the minority…there’s not a lot of male involvement on campus.”

“I thought it would be great for the black men on our campus to unify in some shape, form, or fashion,” Ugwuanyi continued. “And I thought the best way to do that would be for everyone to be in a suit or a blazer and take this one big picture because I thought it would be very powerful, and also it would give an opportunity for our black males to feel represented in some type of way.”
