MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

For the tenth year in a row, Castalia Baptist Church is preparing to travel across state lines and allow students to explore higher education at historically black colleges and universities.

More than 40 high school students will have the opportunity to tour eight HBCU campuses throughout Alabama and Georgia March 16 - 18. The tour is open to all students in grades 9 - 12, regardless of school district or religious affiliation.

“We are excited to continue our annual college tour into our tenth year, and are honored to have kids from as far as Nashville and Chicago participate this year as well,” said group leader Meka Egwuekwe.

The group will visit the following institutions: Alabama A&M University, Talladega College, Miles College, Alabama State University, Tuskegee University, Morehouse College, Spelman College and Clark Atlanta University.

The cost of the tour is $60 for members of Castalia, and $175 for non-members, and the deadline to apply is February 22. The application and more details about the trip can be found at www.castaliachurch.org.
