HBCU College Tour
What We're About
Since 2007 Ivy Rose Foundation, Inc. has sponsored an annual tour of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) in conjunction with Delta Rho Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. The goal of the tour is to encourage the furtherance of education beyond high school while sharing the rich heritage of some of the universities which were available to African Americans during the early days of racial segregation.
The College Tour experience begins with a series of preparatory workshops. The students then visit eight to ten schools from Maryland to Georgia over 5 days. Many of students who participate in the tour are from low-income families and for some it is their first time venturing outside New York City or seeing a college campus.
