Destination HBCU: Detroit to be held on Saturday, April, 27, 2019 at Southfield A&T High School from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  
The Detroit HBCU Network and Closing the Gap Detroit, in part­ner­ship with Southfield Public Schools, are proud to present Destination HBCU: Detroit, a Metro Detroit col­lege fair and more!  While the event wel­comes stu­dents across Southeast Michigan, our pri­ma­ry focus will be stu­dents from the city of Detroit and its sur­round­ing sub­ur­ban com­mu­ni­ties. Parents and oth­er sup­port­ive adults are high­ly encour­aged to attend, also, as they play an inte­gral role in help­ing shape the col­lege blue­print for their stu­dent.

Set up for the col­lege fair will begin at 8:00 a.m. 

While the col­lege fair por­tion is an essen­tial piece to Destination HBCU: Detroitthe entire day is slat­ed to give every vis­i­tor in atten­dance a dose of the HBCU experience…from ener­getic musi­cal selec­tions to infor­ma­tive break­out ses­sions such as “Finding the Right HBCU for You,” “Making the Right Call: The Power of HBCU Athletics,” “Securing the Bag: A Guide to Scholarships,” and “University of Financial Aid.”  There will also be a live­ly pan­el dis­cus­sion of diverse HBCU alum­ni, enti­tled “Life on the Yard:  A Look Inside HBCU Lifestyle and Culture.”  There is no doubt that the 3 E’s of this event will be achieved: to host an event­ful, enjoy­able and edu­ca­tion­al expe­ri­ence for all stu­dents inter­est­ed in attend­ing a Historically Black College or University and to also pro­vide a qual­i­ty learn­ing expe­ri­ence for our stu­dents and par­ents.
