Columbus, OH (BlackNews.com) – HBCUConnect, the mega-site related to Historically Black Colleges and Universities gears up to promote their second-annual HBCUConnect Alumni Cruise.

"This cruise is our way of ensuring that another generation of students will get a chance to attend a Black College, just as we did”.
Every year, HBCU Connect raises money for students at historically black colleges and universities and helps raise the awareness of HBCUs via events, partnerships and the work of The HBCU Foundation.
