by our experience working with HBCU Connect. William, Reginald, and the whole
team have exceeded our expectations by providing exceptional customer service
and helping us reach out to highly qualified students. While this was the

student at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn NY. I found out about HBCU website
about two years ago at a club fair at school. Today I walked into our student
services building and immediately noticed the HBCU Connect magazine with Puffy
on the cover. I am thrilled to know that he is a HBCU alumni. You are doing a
great job on the website and with the publications. Congrats and keep moving
forward. I am now a member of our school newspaper, Adafi, and I hope that we
can eventually have a magazine like HBCUCONNECT. Thumbs up to HBCU workers."

inauguration of President Barack Obama was an extremely heart warming and
life changing experience. My decision to use the Girlfriends email
blast program has brought change to my company. Within 2 days of the blast
we have experienced an 80 percent increase in sales. Thank you Girlfriends
for a job well done. 'Yes You Can' expect more of my ads to run with you."

is bar none one of the best affinity sites on the web. I won't add any words
of praise outside if you aren't associated with it, you aren't interested in
diversity. And if your company isn't a sponsor, you're not spending your
dollars wisely ... I have no stake in the site but have recommended many to
it over the years..."

offers a way to communicate directly to a very specific audience. What I
like is, as an advertiser, you know what you are getting when you reach
out to Girlfriends. I also think the diversity Girlfriends provides
is a critical piece to your value proposition. The bank realizes that it
must communicate and support its diverse customer base and this includes
HBCUs. As is evident by its support of the CIAA tournament and other
initiatives, the bank sees HBCU students as potential lifelong customers
and therefore makes it a priority to begin that relationship while they
are in college."

||"The site gets
tons of traffic and truly is the #1 HBCU site. The staff is fantastic. The
staff is friendly, professional, and tech savvy. I have had good conversations
with several members of the staff. They have always been helpful and flexible.
In addition, the staff is qualified to speak on technical issues as well as
marketing and business affairs. It is essential to engage young people from
all backgrounds to lead our communities, nations, and world in creating the
Beloved Community. African American HBCU graduates are the ideal candidates to
develop leadership skills to lead in addressing our country's most critical
needs while making a positive difference in the lives of thousands of children

Girlfriends has grown over the years. I'm impressed with how it's becoming a
