Chance The Rapper Wants To Attend An HBCU; Why Should He Go To Your HBCU?
Anyone who ever attended an HBCU totally gets why Chance The Rapper would want to be apart of that world. HBCU’s create an experience for African-American Students that you can’t get anywhere else in the world. The loving support as well as being in a positive educational environment surrounded by people who look like you and want the same things as you is an uplifting experience.
Clark ATL is a great HBCU and if Chance The Rapper did go there, we have no doubt they would take great care of him. However, before he signs on the dotted line we think he should take a better look at the other 107 HBCUs.

Clark ATL has responded to his tweet:
“I was tryna go to Clark ATL. I’m still tryna go. Like not honorary, the full blown ya dig. Can someone help me sign up,” tweeted the 24-year-old rapper.
Immediately CAU alumni and staff encouraged Chance to pursue his dreams. Chance, whose real name is Chancellor Bennett, is a Chicago native. He grew up on Chicago’s South Side and recently made headlines for donating one million dollars to the Chicago Public School system. Sources close to the Bennett family reveal that Chance always wanted to attend CAU and that “his tweet didn’t come out of the blue”.
Second to Atlanta, Chicago sends the largest pool of applicants to CAU of other U.S. cities. “Amazing talent comes from the Windy City,” says Getchel L. Caldwell, II, Senior Vice President for Institutional Advancement and University Relations. “Chicago students travel to Atlanta for the very education and cultural experience that our city has to offer and we welcome Chance with open arms.”
Next month Clark Atlanta University will visit Chicago for the 20th Annual Chicago Football Classic. CAU Panthers are suiting up to play in a highly anticipated game against Grambling State University (GSU) on Saturday, September 30.
The highly anticipated, rivalry between the two teams is billed as a ‘must see’ attraction on Chicago’s historic Soldier Field. Each year two Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are invited to participate. “Being invited back to Chicago for the Football Classic is an honor,” says CAU President Dr. Ronald A. Johnson. “We would love to engage Chance the Rapper during this historic event in the city he calls home”.
CAU Student Government Association is also extending a “Panther Welcome” to Chance the Rapper to attend or perform during 2017 Homecoming activities October 16-20.
