I AM NSU...Because I Love My HBCU

(NSU NEWSROOM--July 3, 2014)--Help Norfolk State University raise $300,000 in support of student scholarships through our Tom Joyner School of the Month Campaign this September.
The Tom Joyner Foundation has been a major driving force in raising money for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) since 1998. The foundation was formed by nationally syndicated radio personality Tom Joyner.
For the past 16 years, Joyner’s foundation has selected historically black colleges and universities to showcase on his program and to raise money to support student scholarships. This year, NSU has been selected the school of the month for September. As the School of the Month, Norfolk State’s goal is to increase funding for scholarships from alumni, friends, and corporations.
Norfolk State University is reaching out to alumni and friends and asking them to join us in this special one-time campaign. Through the support of Tom Joyner's radio show, NSU can engage its alumni throughout the United States. This campaign provides us with an opportunity to raise money for needed scholarships, but also gives us a chance to speak with alumni and friends about the great work being done on NSU’s campus on a daily basis.
Scholarships are vital at public institutions such as Norfolk State University. Today, 95 percent of NSU students receive financial assistance. Without this necessary support, many students are not afforded the opportunity to succeed in life.
