A message from the Classic Committee


Dear Friend,

On behalf of The Upstate Historically Black College and University (HBCU) Classic Committee, we extend an invitation to you to become an Official Partner of this awesome event. In these challenging economic times, it is more important than ever to stay connected to the community and its development. The Upstate HBCU Classic is the perfect inroad for your organization or business to demonstrate its commitment by supporting activities and educational projects designed to reach out to those in need and deserving of our support.

The Upstate Historically Black Colleges and Universities Classic is committed to the development of relationships between the upstate of South Carolina’s community and Historically Black Colleges and Universities from across this state and our nation. The Classic Weekend provides our community with exceptional educational, cultural and sporting events that are designed to motivate and empower our youth to continue their efforts toward academic excellence.

The upstate of South Carolina has experienced tremendous growth over the last decade. With this continued success, our obligation to the advancement of society is stronger than ever. We believe that exposing the youth of upstate to the Historically Black College and University experience will encourage students to realize the importance of a college education and its correlation to career advancement opportunities.  

I hope you will give consideration to becoming an Upstate HBCU Classic partner. I realize that in times like these, you have to be careful about every partnership opportunity that comes across your desk. We strongly believe this is a winning opportunity for you and the community.
