The College Hour is doing something different. We are not going to put HBCU's by states, region or in alphabetical order. We are hoping that you stretch your mind and look at a lot these institutions because they all have a lot to offer. Choosing an institution is a very important decision and shouldn't be taken lightly. The majority of students and parents choose a school a lot of times because of financial reasons. Some choose because we don't want to be far from home. I hope you take this thought into consideration. Choose a school on the strength of it's ability to get you where you want to go in life. I say this because there is a prevailing thought that the ice is colder from someone else's refrigerator. This fallacy is further from the truth than people realize. Statistics show from the 2010 Department of Education that over 40 % of African Americans that received Bachelor Degrees came from HBCUs. Over 70% of African American Doctors and Dentist come from HBCU's. Over 50% of African American Engineers come from HBCUs. Now take this thought with you. HBCUs only make up only 3% of Colleges and Universities in this country. These institutions also have close ties to corporations and foundations for employment and for raising capital for their endowment and working capital. HBCUs give a sense of belonging, self pride and the thought of experimenting and failure is just a learning experience of something not to do again and try another approach to get the answer. The College Hour recognizes that HBCU's are not for everyone. If you are thinking about going to College, GO TO COLLEGE. It is one of the greatest experience that you will have in your life.

But, if you decide to go to college, go to a HBCU!!!!!

Paul Quinn College

Paul Quinn College was founded by circuit riding ministers from the African Methodist Episcopal Church in 1872. The college was started in homes and churches in the surrounding area of Austin, Texas. In 1877, the school moved to Waco, Texas to a larger African American population. The school was named after the 4th Bishop of the AME church, William Paul Quinn. The school received it's official charter from the state of Texas in 1881. In 1882, the school offered elementary, secondary and college courses. The school student population grew over 500 students before the Great Depression of the 1930's. The school suffered greatly during the depression, with enrollment dropping below 125 students. By 1938 the school enrollment began to increase. In 1938, the Texas Department of Education granted Paul Quinn College accreditation. In the 1980's HBCU's saw black flight to PWI's. and many of the HBCU suffered greatly. Bishop College of Dallas closed it's doors. A businessman by the name of Comer S. Cottrell purchased Bishop College at an auction. Mr. Cottrell started talks with Paul Quinn College and persuaded the College to relocate to Dallas, Texas in 1988. Mr. Cottrell added another 1.7 million dollars to clean up the campus. In September of 1990, Paul Quinn College relocated to the 132 acre campus in Dallas, Texas. Paul Quinn College has developed into one of the finest colleges in the country. Paul Quinn College was voted best HBCU for 2011 by HBCU Digest. It's accredited by Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS)accrediting agency. This institution on the move, upward. This is a must see college.
