These Photoshoots From Canadian Black Student Groups Will Give You Serious Squad Goals

Sisterhood, diversity and hair always on fleek.

Last month, McMaster University's Womanists group and Nu Omega Zeta carried out a few different photoshoots around campus to showcase their new members for the 2015-2016 academic school year. The results are simply stunning and super adorable.


The group's mission is to provide a safe, positive and inclusive space for black women and other WoC on and off McMaster’s campus.

They also advocate for queer, trans and indigenous women.

Most recently, the group organized a coffeehouse event, with all proceeds going to FemCare Hamilton.

FemCare Hamilton provides feminine hygiene products to homeless women and non-gender binary folks in the area.


But they also hit the books as hard as they work towards their mission.

Their academic disciplines range from English, sociology and psychology to life sciences, statistics and math.

Founded in 2011, Nu Omega Zeta is Canada's first all-black sorority.

Above are the founding mothers.

The sorority's purpose is "to establish and promote the growth and enrichment of black undergraduate students," while also enhancing their educational experience.


Once one becomes a member of Nu Omega Zeta, each "little sister" is placed with a "big sister."

This is done to create a life-long family-type bond within the sorority.

The sorority also aims to be diverse in every way.

The sisters come from a wide range of cultural, ethnic, religious and academic backgrounds.
