The San Diego County Office of Education will host its sixth-annual Black College Expo on Jan.26 to allow students to connect with more than 30 historically black colleges and universities.
The free annual event will be hosted from 12:30 P.M. through 5 p.m. in partnership with the National College Resources Foundation at MLK Center at Bayview, 6134 Pastor Timothy J Winter St., San Diego. Over 50 colleges and universities are expected to be in attendance.
According to the San Diego County Office of Education, the expo opens an opportunity for high school juniors and seniors of all racial and ethnic backgrounds across the region to meet with historically black colleges, earn scholarships, or even be accepted on the spot with a student transcript.
Local and state university representatives will also be in attendance to talk with students. There will be seminars on financial aid, student-athletes, and how to start a business, among other helpful topics.
