2018 Midwest HBCU Alumni Weekend is This Thursday thru Saturday in Columbus! (2604 hits)

HBCUConnect.com partners with First Friday’s Columbus and Distinguished Alumni to present The 2018 Midwest HBCU Alumni Weekend

Registration Opens July 1st

The Official Midwest HBCU Alumni Weekend promises to provide a weekend packed with entertainment, career and professional networking activities for the tens of thousands of African Americans who attended an HBCU and currently reside in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Illinois and the Michigan markets.

The Midwest HBCU Weekend will be hosted in Columbus, Ohio, the 14th largest city in the country, and also home to the 2nd largest university in the country, Ohio State University. The weekend activities will be open not only to HBCU grads, but also diverse professionals in the area that want to experience that positive and progressive HBCU vibe.

Event Location: Columbus, Ohio
Event Dates: Thursday August 2nd thru Saturday August 4th, 2018

While Ohio is home to two HBCUs in Central State University and Wilberforce University, the vast majority of HBCU alums who live in the Midwest attended universities that are in the Southeastern United States. For those graduates who do not have alumni organizations in their cities, attending their alma mater’s annual homecoming festivities in the fall may be their lone opportunity to reconnect with friends, fellowship and take part in quality networking activities. Hosting The Official Midwest HBCU Alumni Weekend in Columbus, Ohio, provides a unique, cost-effective event in an easy-to-access location by car or plane for HBCU alums in states in the Midwest and those that are adjacent to Ohio.

The agenda for the weekend will include entertainment from well known DJs from the 90s as well as several social and professional networking events sponsored by companies such as Nationwide, Amazon, CVS, and employers looking for educators, corporate IT, Finance, Accounting, Business Managers, and Executives.

While the weekend has been growing in momentum with signature events like the HBCU CONNECT Recruitment Reception on Friday, August 3rd, the schedule of events continues to grow. So far the weekend party goes and professionals will enjoy the following agenda:

Thursday, August 2nd, 2018
