Texas Southern University will be featured on the BET+ reality series “College Hill: Celebrity Edition.”

The eight-episode series follows eight celebrities as they are fully immersed in an HBCU experience set against the backdrop of the campus of Texas Southern University. TSU was chosen in a national search for the opportunity to highlight the campus, academic programs, and students. The cast includes NeNe Leakes, Ray J, Lamar Odom, Big Freedia, Stacey Dash, India Love, DreamDoll and Slim Thug AKA Big Slim. During the series, the cast will work toward completing a specialty certificate program to walk across the graduation stage. 

 “Having the cast and crew of ‘College Hill: Celebrity Edition’ on our campus was a special experience for Texas Southern University and a unique opportunity to introduce TSU to new audiences,” said Texas Southern University vice president for communications and advancement Melinda Spaulding. “The multiple positive interactions with students and the highlighting of our president and faculty will show the world what we already know about Texas Southern. BET also partnered with the University for scholarships and gifted our students with an amazing Culture Fest culminating experience. We hope our participation will enhance the interest in not only the Texas Southern University, but all HBCUs.”

The series is produced by Edmonds Entertainment, founded by award-winning executive producer Tracey Edmonds, Sean Rankine and Mark Seliga for This Way Out Media and Tiffany Lea Williams for BET+. “College Hill: Celebrity Edition” is a reimagining of the “College Hill” series that initially ran in the early 2000s following the lives of students at different HBCUs.
