The Leadership Studies Program at HSU is preparing for its 5th annual Bike Ride, this year they are leaving the Texas border and trekking all the way to Canada (Bike Ride Across The States). The ride provides students a real and complex project to plan, organize, and execute. Students are responsible for all aspects of the project, which provides them opportunities to practice and develop leadership and organization skills.To learn more about the history of BRAT, please visit our website www.bikerideacrosstexas.com.

The total cost for this project is $5,000. Students have until June 5, 2017, to raise all necessary funds. 


These funds will help pay for lodging, food, gasoline, and any emergencies along the route. They have bikes, gears, and spare equipment from previous rides.

The financial support will ensure a successful trip. You can also donate in the areas of lodging, food, and/or promotion. For further information, contact Dr. Coleman Patterson at pattersn@hsutx.edu.
