HBCU SpringcominG

APRIL 21-23, 2017

 
 

What if we told you that you didn't have to wait until Fall to experience the love and fellowship of an HBCU Homecoming? 

What if we told you that EVERY year, New York City hosts a special Spring Homecoming for graduates of HBCUs?

Graduates from all over the nation, draped in school colors, pour their school pride all over NYC in a weekend full of events that feels like being back on the yard! Filled with opportunities to both party and network, HBCU SpringComing, always draws an audience of influencers from across the country, and should not be missed!

 

 

EVENTS

INNOVATION LAB - In Partnership with Amplify 4 Good -- HOSTED BY TWITTER

Calling all creatives, engineers and project managers...everyone loves a good group project! Imagine if some of the brightest minds in the class were assembled and challenged to tackle one shared problem that impacts HBCUs. Join us in making a lasting impact on our HBCU community.

SOUTH'N THE CITY

The first chance to clink a glass, this Friday welcome event should be thought of as Orientation. It will be your first chance to meet everyone that is enrolling in the weekend. Come celebrate SNTC's 6th Anniversary, and kick things off in style.
 

Mind YOur Business

Better than Convocation or advice from any academic advisor, this panel will leave you empowered to take the next steps in your personal business development.  Join us for an in-depth discussion on Entrepreneurship, Ownership and Community Building.
 

School Daze (The Yard)

This is The Yard. This is campus. This.is.SpringComing! If Saturday was a movie, it would be School Daze!  Think Saturday of Homecoming! Trust us, between the guest performances, grilling stations, spades and basketball tournaments and sponsored tents you won't even realize there wasn't a halftime show!

THE KICKBACK: A Block Party Experience -- PRESENTED BY DIAGEO

What’s an HBCU SpringComing without a few surprises? You’ve left the yard after the game and want to figure out the next move? Consider this our version of “something to get into”. Details coming soon. 

WORSHIP SERVICE

Come celebrate and fellowship at one of Harlem’s most fulfilling worship services! 

HAV PLENTY BRUNCH

Complete with amazing food and a musical turn up reminiscent of freshman year, you are guaranteed to get more than your stomach, liver, and IG stories can handle! This will be the quintessential farewell brunch of the weekend!

HBCU SPRINGCOMING '18? 

PUISSANCE SCHOLARSHIP

In 2012, five HBCU grads set out to shatter the perception that black alumni don’t give back to their alma maters. Lauren Legette, (Hampton ’11), Alize Beal (Howard ’12), Brendan Francis (Howard ’12), Roger Rojas (Morgan State ’01), and Anastazia Neely (Hampton ’12) founded the Puissance Scholarship, to aid in offsetting the cost of college tuition for high school seniors bound for an HBCU. Scholarships are solely awarded thanks to generous monetary donations of fellow HBCU graduates and sponsors. Outside of the scholarship, the team develops programs to increase awareness about the benefits of HBCU for prospective students and to provide a network of support for the alumni they will become.

Thanks to the Puissance Scholarship and the HBCU Family at HBCU SpringComing 2016, I can achieve my dream of earning my degree at a Historically Black University. I can’t wait to move further towards my career and grow in my culture at Norfolk State University. Behold the green and gold!
