I chose a HBCU over a pwi because HBCUs have history and I wanted to become a part of history. Not that I have anything againt Pwi’s but its just not the same experience.

I also chose my HBCU because of the experience i could receive. I had at one point attended a pwi, but it just wasn’t for me. Wasn’t my type of crowd!

Major? Why did you choose it?

I am a biology major and I chose it because for one I like science and I know that I want to do something in medicine, in the science field!

What is the story of your “experience” at Alabama A&M University given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?

Aawww man, my experience is something I would not trade for anything. Getting that HBCU experience is something you cant get anywhere else, from the parties, to eating at the cafe, to turnin’ up on the quad!

My experience at my school (Alabama A&M University) has been wonderful. I got to meet people from all across the world. I think everybody has there own personal connection when it comes to HBCU’s. I have plenty of stories that I could go on on and on about!

“First time” experiences at Alabama A&M University?

My first time experience was crazy, it was homecoming 2010 and it changed my life!

Who are the professors that have impacted your life in and out of the classroom? How did they do that?

Dr. Hop is my advisor and is my absolute favorite teacher ever. I feel that he goes above and beyond to help not just me but other students too. I think he deserves the best college professor award!

He takes time out of his day to make sure his students are prepared for graduation and post-graduation. I must say since I’ve known him he has made a world of difference not just in my life but in others as well!

Curious about being a Biology major? Life at AAMU? Respectfully ask Kiera!
