Thousands of students from across the Northeast attended the New York Urban League’s 31st annual Historically Black Colleges and Universities Fair on Saturday.

The fair was presented in partnership with the Malcolm Bernard HBCU College Fair Tour, Riverbank State Park and the New York Urban League Young Professionals.

High school and community college students got the chance to meet face to face with representatives of many historically Black institutions of higher education from across the country. Many high school seniors received on-site admissions and scholarships. Students came from throughout the Northeast to attend the fair including the five boroughs, Long Island, New Jersey, Connecticut and even Massachusetts.

Families were treated to workshops and guest speakers focusing on helping students gain the knowledge and tools necessary for them to move to and through higher education.
