The Harrison Museum of African American Culture is proud to announce our fourth annual Historically Black College and University (HBCU) Fair and on-site admission event.

This fair will offer opportunities to students who ordinarily would not receive such direct access to HBCU recruiters and alumni. Students will also have a chance to walk away with acceptance letters in addition to scholarship and financial aid information.

Seniors should come prepared and dressed professionally for on-site interviews (suit, tie, slacks for men and suit or dresses for women). No jeans, no sweats, no fitted caps, no t-shirts, and no exceptions! Seniors should bring several copies of High School transcripts and SAT/ACT scores for on-site admissions.

Panel Discussion and Question and Answer segment with College Alumni and Representatives of HBCU schools will begin at 11:30 am


Hampton University

In addition to bringing SAT/ACT scores and High School Transcripts, please bring a recommendation letter and essay: A minimum 500 word essay on the topic of CHARACTER: Character matters at Hampton University. Describe what exhibiting good character means to you and provide specific examples of your demonstrated behavior in this regard.
