California College Fairs

(HBCU) Historically Black College Recruitment Fairs

The UCAN Black College Recruitment Fairs are held in the Fall each year. Our most recent fairs in September 2016 drew more than 15,000 students and parents serving the cities of Sacramento, San Francisco, Fairfield, Oakland, Vallejo, Modesto, Las Vegas, and the Inland Empire (San Bernardino, Moreno Valley, Rialto and Fontana Unified School Districts). The Fairs were an overwhelming success with many students receiving on the spot admissions and scholarship offers.
