More on the HBCU Fair

Open to high school students and community college transfers, the event will feature an HBCU exploration montage, workshops, speakers, performances, a virtual backpack, prizes and bookships.

 

Students will get more information on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, as well as other institutions. This annual program helps support and encourage students to work toward an advanced degree. Our annual HBCU Fair has taken place for nearly 40 years, and we know that in the past each year a number of the students have ultimately pursue their higher education experience by attending an HBCU and/or by doing two years here at a community college and then transferring to an HBCU to complete their college education.
