A virtual way to connect with HBCU's and the college experience
Yes, the landscape is a little different given our now-normal. To varying degrees, even with some changes, there are some things that remain the same, and this includes the importance and relevance of college fairs. In a highly innovative and creative manner given the current climate, on Friday, February 5th (from 3-6pm EST) and Saturday, February 6th (from 10am-1pm EST), a HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) focused college fair is taking place.
Hosted by the Gwinnett County chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc (Rho Kappa Lambda) along with support from the Georgia District of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., the virtual fair takes place at Meadowcreek High School. However, please note you must register for the event (click HERE to register) as it is virtual (for safety precautions).
Representatives from a myriad of HBCU's are scheduled to provide extensive information on their admissions processes, scholarship opportunities, and related engagement. For those who are interested in pursuing music at the collegiate level, there are audition opportunities available, but you must register to take full advantage.
Additional engagement opportunities (virtually) with current students and alumni are also part of the weekend's programming.
Even in the midst of a pandemic, providing access to resources and opportunities for high school students remains a priority. Thanks to this service initiative from a fraternal organization established on a college campus (Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. is founded on the campus of Cornell University on December 4, 1906), this weekend's 3rd annual edition (of the event) provides a way to gather pertinent information to better identify post-high school pathways to success.
Register today and be present and accounted for virtually this weekend.
