They have guided tours of each campus, they are provided information and a complete overview of each campus including what to do next if they desire to attend that college. The city tour lets them see other areas in the city and what it offers.

A program designed to reach out to middle school students to help them see Blacks in a successful environment and to inspire better performance in high school as preparation for college.
