When it comes to finding your best-fit college, a school's atmosphere is very important. It determines whether you'll feel comfortable and whether you'll find your niche. For this reason, all students should consider attending a Historically Black College or University.
There are 105 Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the United States—you may already be familiar with some well-known campuses like Morehouse (pictured above), Howard, Spelman, and Fisk. From class offerings and student organizations to career services and alumni networks,
HBCUs offer supportive environments that are rooted in the African-American experience. But this is not saying these campuses aren’t diverse: HBCUs admit students from all races and walks of life.
Did You Know…
You should consider the campus culture at any college before you apply. Don't rely solely on the materials sent to you by the admissions office—do your own research.
Given the opportunity, visit as many campuses as you can before making a final decision. There is no better way to get a real sense of the college, its people and the type of life you will experience than visiting the campus.
A quality HBCU tour provides the student with access to many campuses, admissions personnel, financing seminars as well as accurate customized information about the various HBCU options that meet your specific objectives.
"Without new experiences, your soul rots."
I have no idea who originated that quote but I am absolutely certain it is true. Very often we, as human beings, get very comfortable in the lives we have and start to grow roots.
I don't mean the good kind of roots where you create strong relationships with others who educate, inspire and motivate you to greatness, but the kind of roots that keep you in the same place, with the same people, discussing the same ideas.
In my lifetime, I have found that travel, no matter how small, opens the door to new ideas, perspectives and always has the potential to teach new lessons about people, the world we live in and most important about ourselves.
So, it is with this thought in mind that we bring you the Top 5 Reasons "you" want to be on the Ultimate HBCU Tour.
