NCCU featured in August US Airways magazine

N.C. Central University has been featured in an August US Airways magazine cover story about historically black colleges and universities.

The magazine reaches the airline’s 6.5 million domestic passengers and 3.6 million international readers, according to a NCCU release.

The 48-page spread on HBCUs, which includes short articles on 30 of the nation’s 100-plus HBCUs, opens with a full-page photo from the NCCU campus, which shows the statue of founder James E. Shepard and the Hoey Administration Building at twilight.

The article about NCCU has the headline “Hearts and Sciences” and focuses on the university’s biosciences programs, law school and longtime record for community service.
