BET returns to GSU for its seventh annual Black College Tour

BET made its way back to GSU for its seventh annual Black College Tour. The tour is part of BET’s continuous efforts to highlight and support HBCUs by providing a plethora of activities and fun events that give students a chance to be in a stress free, down to earth family environment.

The tour also offered health information for all attendees and had its Emmy award winning “Rap-It-Up” campaign conducting free on-site HIV testing.

The tour also had its youth involvement in the presidential election by hosting its “Be Heard Innovate” offering on-site voter registration and general election poll voting information.

The McDonald’s Spoken Word Contest was held, which gave away a 13-inch MacBook. The Pepsi Freestyle Rap Contest gave away a traditional iPod, while the Verizon Wireless 3-point Shootout gave away $100 dollars and a cell phone contract.

Fully loaded and ready to rock, the 2008 BET performers included: Lil- Keke, who is slowly making his way back on the rap scene; Brisco, a solo rap artist, who claims to be on many of Lil Wayne’s albums; Mishon from the ABC Family show who was obviously excited about the possibility of a singing career; and Rock City, a Caribbean group from St.Thomas, V.I.
