BET’s College Tour Will Visit FAMU

Florida A&M University will be one of the 16 stops on the BET College Tour, the largest and only national tour of its kind. The tour will be on the Benjamin L. Perry lawn, behind the Perry-Paige building, on Wednesday, October 29, during FAMU’s Homecoming week.

“This is very exciting for our us,” said Mellori Lumpkin, vice president of FAMU’s Student Government Association. “We have built a great relationship with BET over the past couple years and to have them to come back and participate during our homecoming activities is great.”

Now in its seventh year, the College Tour is part of BET’s continuous efforts to highlight and support historically black colleges and universities by providing relevant, engaging and informative outreach to minority students.

The schedule of events will include a spoken word contest, a two-on-two basketball challenge, a singer’s spotlight and a concert from a Universal Records recording
