Are there HBCU-specific college fairs or recruitment events?

Does anyone know if HBCUs hold unique college fairs or events like that where students can showcase their talents? Looking for any similar experiences!

Absolutely, there are events specifically tailored for students interested in HBCUs. Many HBCUs participate in the National College Fairs that focus on historically lack institutions. These fairs give students the opportunity to meet with admissions representatives, learn about different programs, and even receive on-the-spot admissions decisions.

An example is the Black College Expo, which is held annually in various cities across the U.S. This event showcases the vast opportunities available at HBCUs as well, and presents an opportunity for students to ask personal questions about scholarships or other resources.

Additionally, keep an eye out for local events in your area, as schools may arrange their own individual college visits or mini-fairs in collaboration with community organizations or local high schools. I recommend reaching out to the admissions offices of the HBCUs you're interested in to ask about upcoming recruitment events or fairs and to join their mailing lists for updated information.

Networking with these institutions at fairs is a fantastic way to get a more concrete feel for the school's culture and academic offerings! Good luck with your search!
