"An HBCU Education ... Your Key to Success"

A Great Big Thank You!


As it takes a “village to raise a child,” so it takes a community of volunteers to successfully put on the Ethnic College Counseling Center’s HBCU Fair.  The ECCC is honored and blessed by the role you played in the 2017 HBCU Recruitment Days and Fair.  Thanks for your time, money, energy, guidance, network, wisdom, protection, facilities, transportation, food, and whit. Without your assistance, we couldn't have done such an outstanding job. We truly needed YOU and will need YOU again in 2019!
