Alabama A&M University featured in 'Virtual HBCU College Tour'

High school students were only a click away from visiting their prospective college or university.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Thousands of students took a tour around more than forty Historically Black Colleges and Universities, without ever leaving their home on Saturday.

Huntsville's very own, Alabama A&M University was one of the participating schools at the Virtual HBCU College Tour hosted by the National HBCU Alumni Alliance, Inc. and launched by HUX Made Productions.

The event featured live virtual booths and sessions, along with on-site admissions.

Organizers say this is a way to keep the tradition of school tours for high school juniors and seniors during the pandemic.

"It's important because a lot of students right now are feeling like they can't either apply or 'I don't want to apply' because 'I don't know what's the circumstances'. So, in order to know that; you won't know that unless you ask or someone gives you some type of platform to really do that," says HUXMade Productions Owner, Dr. Danielle James.

This is the fourth virtual tour this year. Organizers are planning to have more tours. For more information, click here.
