Representatives from more than 15 historically black colleges and universities were present at the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Fair Nov. 6 in OAB 251, providing information and resources to help students in their search for higher education.

The free event was open 10 a.m. to noon for any and everyone who had an interest in applying to a historically black college or university like Alabama State University, Bethune-Cookman University, Clark Atlanta University and Harris-Stowe State University.

The California College HBCU transfer pathway group contacted David Shoemaker, the transfer counselor, about stopping by for the students.

Although there was some miscommunication from the event coordinator and the students about where the event was going to take place, event coordinator Rodney Murphy said there were about “100 students that came in and out.”

The popularity for the HBCU college fair has been growing since its inaugural year in 2014, with more and more applicants attending the event, said one of the college representatives.

“For California community college students, every single one of theses colleges and universities students apply for, they will have a guaranteed transfer agreement,” Shoemaker said.
