Access Students Visit Missouri’s HBCUs

Recognizing that increased exposure leads to increased enrollment, college tours are a staple of the Access program; Access students are offered up to 16 college visits between 8th grade and their high school graduation.

This fall, those visits were to Missouri’s two Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs): Harris-Stowe State University and Lincoln University. In October, more than 30 Access high schoolers toured Hornet Nation, exploring Harris-Stowe’s campus, visiting the dorms, and playing ‘Tour Bingo’ along the way (congrats to students Sanai and Angel for winning!). Then in November, students traveled to Jefferson City to experience Lincoln, where they toured campus, participated in an admissions and financial aid presentation, and enjoyed lunch in the dining hall. As always, special thanks to all of the admissions staff, Access Graduate Support team, and student volunteers who make these informative and enlightening visits possible.
