Day 2 Recap:

The evening continued with laughter and a little friendly competition at our “Play No Games” Game Night. Attendees enjoyed an array of games, and, depending on the cards people were dealt, friends and enemies were made as fast as the dice were rolled.

Day 3 Recap:

Day 3 of the HBCU SpringComing x NYC four-day festival was filled with fun, friends, and more than a few food trucks.

Let’s dive into the highlights of Saturday, April 20th:

At our family-friendly event, School Daze, attendees soaked up the sun while enjoying live music, family games, and delicious bites from food trucks. There was something for everything, from the young to the young-at-heart.

As the sun set, the party continued at The Kickback! Attendees danced and drank as DJs spun everything from classic hits to the latest tracks. It was the perfect way to unwind after a long day of festivities.

Day 4 Recap:

As the curtains closed on an unforgettable weekend, Day 4 of HBCU SpringComing x NYC brought us together for one final celebration of Black excellence.

The weekend culminated in style with the Hav Plenty Brunch, where attendees chatted with fellow HBCU alumni over plates brimming with good food.

It was the perfect opportunity to reflect and say goodbye to an unforgettable weekend of connection and community.
