14th Annual Black College Expo Returns To LA

Black College Expo

The 14th Annual Black College Expo Returns to LA February 2nd and as someone who was accepted to Hampton University on the spot (Black Collge Expo Oakland 2005) I definitely recommend making the trip to all High School Students.  Younger students can get a feel for what is necessary to get into their ideal schools and older students with all the necessary documents can be accepted on the spot to certain schools.  Helping over 375,000 students get into college and giving away over $500,000 in scholarships The Black College Expo will take place on Saturday, February 2, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Make sure you have all the requirements necessary for your school, dress professional and you can have your college acceptance on the spot.  I had to go up to Oakland because after attending the LA Expo I didn’t do my personal statement, thinking since I was doing an on the spot interview I didn’t need it, WRONG.  The next week it was in Oakland so along with having a wonderful supportive mother, I prepared my personal statement and was on the road to Oakland the next weekend.  Now I am Hampton University Alum, Thanks Black College Expo!

House On A Hill: 1070 N. Hillcrest Rd…..BevHills

House On A Hill: Bedford Parc

Perhaps the catalysis to transforming the district or an attempt to  finally connect with it’s “Uppity Brother”, Baldwin Hills, Crenshaw District truly produced a Diamond in the rough, Bedford Parc and Bedford Promenade Condominiums.  Southwest of the BHCP, Bedford Parc and Bedford Promenade, a collection of new luxurious condominium residences sit right in the heart of the Crenshaw District.  As a product of The Bedford Group, both developments are proving very promising for the area. 

Experience the New Urban Luxury with its impeccable views, relaxing outdoor pool area, inviting Club Room, private theater and personal on-site concierge service.  With Bedford Promenade completely sold out and Bedford Parc with more than 50% of their 70 condos sold out, the developement as whole is doing great.  Bedford Promenade sits directly behind Bedford Parc, almost seems as one giant complex. Condos in Bedford Parc range from 1,100 to 1,580 square feet and don’t quote me but selling for right under $300K.

These homes offer an eclectic mix of seven (7) well-appointed floor plans accentuated with some of the finest finishes and amenities. And because Baldwin Hills is currently undergoing a new renaissance, Bedford Parc puts you right where you want to be- just steps away from exclusive shopping and dining, as well as close proximity to convenient transportation corridors and the LAX International Airport.
