The Brown / Parrish Black College Bus Tour was launched in 1983. It started out as an annual bus tour that allows inner city youth the opportunity to visit Historical Black Colleges and Universities ( HBCU). These tours encouraged students to consider attending an HBCU while guiding them in seeking financial assistance. The tour now departs from 10 cities during the beginning of each week when requested.
HBCUBUSTOURS.COM, launched in 2009, was created out of The Brown / Parrish Black College Bus. Over the years placing students into historically black colleges and universities, we realized that there is a great misunderstanding and miscommunication among communities towards HBCU’S, concerning the vast opportunities offered by these institutions. HBCUBUSTOURS.COM allows colleges to link directly to students, high school counselors and family members.
In March of 2010, HBCULINKUP was launched. HBCULinkup has given us a gateway to provide unlimited communication with colleges and the educational community through the usage of social networking. This social networking site will allow students, teachers, college admission and hundreds of relationships to meet one another and help provided the necessary support for each other.
