HBCU College Fair

A college fair highlighting Colleges and Universities. This event is geared toward High School Students, but is certainly open to students of all ages. The colleges represented will set up individual tables full of information and giveaways. Attendees will have the opportunity to make their way around the fair and gain information on as many schools in attendance as they wish. During the event, information will be provided about scholarship opportunities, essay writing tips, and insight on what to do after you have been accepted.
