– HBCUBound.com is a new online student platform that alleviates the stress of the college admissions process to HBCUs. –
Atlanta, GA — The college admissions process is among the most stressful things for a college bound high school seniors. However, one online platform, HBCUbound.com, is helping to reduce stress for students with a desire to attend historically black colleges and universities (HBCU).
According to a 2010 survey conducted by the American College Counselling, Inc., 76 percent of high school students bound for college admit that they feel stressed about the college admissions process. The reason cited was the lack of resources for expert guidance.
HBCUbound.com was launched to increase enrollment at historically black colleges and universities and facilitate a smooth transition from high school to an HBCU. The website provides a wealth of information on financial aid, SAT/ACT prep information, essay writing, internships, the college admissions process and other necessary resources.
The website was founded by Barry Roberson Jr. and Samuel Sims Jr. who both have an undying passion for HBCUs. Roberson Jr. said: “We are aiming to be an online guidance counselor for high school students. We do understand how challenging the college admissions process is; so we created this platform to help reduce the stress on students through the provision of useful resources about HBCUs.”
Choosing the right institution can be a challenge in itself. Nevertheless, the website provides further help to students by narrowing down their choices by matching them with an HBCU of their choice. All that is required of the student is to register on the website, which may result not only in them being contacted by one of the institutions, but they will automatically be entered for a chance to win a scholarship.
The college admissions process doesn’t have to be a stressful event and HBCU Bound is seeing to that. For further information or to sign up on the website, visit www.HBCUbound.com>
