NCCU to Host NC HBCU Picnic During Spring Fling Week

North Carolina Central University’s Spring Fling Week will headline the first North Carolina HBCU Picnic, Saturday, April 22 at 2 p.m., at the Outdoor Recreational Complex (located near O’Kelly-Riddick Stadium). The event is free and open to all.

The HBCU Picnic, hosted by NCCU’s Student Activities Board, is a part of a week-long series of events that will bring together students from neighboring campuses to celebrate the close of a successful academic year.

“We are excited to celebrate with our fellow HBCU students and alumni from 11 universities from around the state,” said Jalen Baker, event coordinator. “This event will showcase our unity and will offer the ultimate family reunion experience.”

The event will include music, special performances, food and vending. NCCU’s SAB is the university’s student-led organization that is responsible for planning major student events, including Homecoming and Pre-Dawns.
