Black college mega-site launches HBCU Connect The Magazine

aoldb://mail/magazine/images/MEDIA KIT.pdf(April 12, 2007) HBCU Connect, one of the largest websites dedicated to Historically Black Colleges and Universities, has announced the introduction of its newest media platform – HBCU Connect The Magazine, an alumni-focused full-sized print publication.

"It's been a long time coming!" says Daniel Moss, Vice President of Business Development for the growing online community. "This is yet another venture that has been on the horizon for some time, but we knew it was a matter of time because we grew from an alumni focus."

HBCU Connect, "The Magazine" is distributed by mail and on-line subscriptions, at high traffic areas and at alumni attended events of federally recognized Historically Black Colleges and Universities across the nation.

"Our mission is to lift up the successes, concerns and issues facing the Black community, beginning at the core of leadership found at HBCUs," offers CEO William Moss. "It makes sense to rally more seasoned community members who can in turn offer something back to the younger generations."

HBCU Connect is an online-based community formed in 1999 to link graduates of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. With a membership of more than 400,000, the community now consists of HBCU students, alumni, family and friends. The Columbus, Ohio-based company has extended to not only link graduates, but students, offering money for college, graduates with employers as well as maintaining an active presence in the HBCU community.

HBCU Connect The Magazine is available by subscription at www.hbcuconnect.com/magazine .
