GET YOUR SLICE OF EDUCATION
"Get Your Slice of Education" is a bus tour of Historically Black Colleges and Universities for college bound high school students. The Tour is a 30 year project of HBCU Bus Tours, Inc.... formerly The Brown/Parish Black college Bus Tour. We have helped thousands of high school students to experience being on college campuses, many for the first time. Students get to identify with schools they desire to attend. In most cases, the enrollment process is initiated during their visit to the college of their dreams.
The one, two or three day tours visit two to ten schools chosen by your group organizer. Campuses include the Historically Black Colleges and Universities as well as other well known schools on the selected rout. The tour encourages students to consider attending an HBCU or other college while guiding students on how to seek financial assistance, and meeting the basic requirements’ for enrollments. Over the past 30 years, we have been rated as one of the most popular College Bus Tours on the East Coast. High School students from across the country enroll in our tours.
Visiting a college campus is a penetrating experience for every student whose family expects their daughter or son to attend college. Students often come away from the tour experience, with more than one school occupying their minds as potential candidates for their enrollment. This is exactly the impact HBCU Bus Tours has on most students returning from a tour.
A typical GET YOUR SLICE OF EDUCATION tour can be a (1) day tour where students visit two colleges. On a (2 or 3) day tour, students leave their hotel room each day at around 7:30am traveling to the first college. There They will spend approximately 1.5 to 2 hours on the campus learning about the college, it's curriculum and admission policy. Students then travel to the second college, have lunch on the campus and start the college tour process again. After the final college of the day, students head to the next city.
