Black College Tour 2018 (Claflin University, South Carolina)


The Indianapolis Alumnae Chapter – Black College Tour 2019 will include visits to: Bennett College (Greensboro, NC), Fisk University (Nashville, TN), Hampton University (Hampton, VA), Howard University (Washington, DC), Johnson C. Smith University (Charlotte, NC), Norfolk State University (Norfolk, VA), North Carolina A&T University (Greensboro, NC), Tennessee State University (Nashville, TN), and Winston Salem State University (Winston-Salem, NC). **Visits are scheduled based on each university’s availability and are subject to change without prior notification**.

The 2019 Tour will take place on Sunday, March 24th – Friday, March 29th, 2019. This tour is open to freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors. The cost for this tour is $525.

Most students are afforded the chance to visit one or two colleges during their high school years. However, through the DST-IAC Black College Tour, students will have an opportunity to visit nine (9) to ten (10) colleges and universities in less than one week! WOW, what an opportunity! In addition to the Tour being a “once in a lifetime opportunity” for most families, the Tour is extremely affordable. This Tour allows students a chance to talk with administrators, admissions officers, current students, faculty, and staff. Students can ask direct questions, explore scholarship possibilities, look at residence halls, investigate extracurricular activities, and make comparisons to colleges and universities in states they may be interested in, but perhaps never considered a real possibility. Many students have reported…

“I never knew about HBCUs.”

“I’m so glad I came.”

“I can really see myself here…”
