In addition to college hoops, Scope hosted a college fair for Hampton Roads high school students. Nearly 600 potential students and college representatives gathered inside Scope’s Exhibition Hall.

The event was part educational, part entertainment. After learning about the importance of a college education, students watched MEAC bands and cheerleaders perform.
