I went to college in Ohio and spent the best four plus years of my life at historically black Central State University in Wilberforce. CSU is Ohio’s only public historically black college or university (HBCU). College is the best four years of your life, they say.

So because of my love for my HBCU, I was thrilled to discover the fact that enrollment at many HBCUs across the country is, in fact, on the rise.

In late July, I wrote this story about how North Carolina HBCUs are enjoying an ongoing surge in donations, thanks, in part, to the Black Lives Matter movement because it seems to me and hundreds and thousands of others that HBCUs matter. It’s exciting to hear about HBCUs trying to find new ways to engage with alumni, fans, and supporters.

Two HBCUs in the Houston area also are seeing an uptick in enrollment, according to reports.

TSU and PVAMU have seen a jump in enrollment
