Where are you from? Who introduced you to HBCUs?*

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York. I first heard about HBCU’s from family members and hearing them talk about them as a child. Later on I heard about them from other folks and I decided to check them out on my own.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

The first college I went to was a pwi. I decided to go to an HBCU to see what the cultural differences were, and to see the difference between the educational curricula.

What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*

My HBCU is still lauded as an outstanding and upstanding institution of higher learning. It still has a “family” atmosphere and is a close-knit campus. Also, the professors and staff are caring towards students.
