College can be a part of your future.

Get a real feel of what it’s like to be a student at an historic black college or university with our tours.

Choosing where to attend college is a major life decision. A college tour can give you first-hand experience of what it’s like to be a student on campus and help connect you with valuable resources. From sitting in on a college class or visiting a dorm room, you can get a real feel of what it’s like to be a college student.

That’s why Urban League of Nebraska is offering you a chance to be on an historic black college campus. Each year, the Urban League of Nebraska takes 80 or more students to visit both in-state and out-of-state institutions, including historic black colleges or universities. During this experience, you’ll see why historic black colleges and universities are so widely regarded for their ability to support and elevate minority students.
