Rust College has partnered with HBCULinkUp to offer additional services to our students.

HBCU Link-Up is a FREE social networking website that helps to further educational opportunity for students nationally. HBCU LinkUp has aggregated a number of services to meet the needs of the high school students, counselors, college students and family members. HBCU LinkUp has established several high value relationships with national service organizations which our members can use to support their college bound and civic needs.

Through our site, students and civic groups learn about
• Bus Tours to colleges
• Dynamic scholarship tracking program month to month
• A College Enrollment program that offers failed students to get into college
• Communities can access powerful fundraising campaigns
• College search engines
• GPA and loan calculator
• Academic Teaching programs
• Career Search engine
• Mentoring opportunities with students, fraternities, sororities and educators

HBCU LinkUp provides an equalizing of platform for all serious students to achieve. This service is an offshoot of the 30 year old Brown/ Parrish Black College Bus Tour, which has provided college accessibility to thousands of students. The tour traditionally takes students to visit colleges along the east coast in an effort to build relationships on campuses with admissions departments.
