Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

Originally I didn’t have a preference of what kind of school I went to. My parents both went to college and graduated. My father went to Wiley College and my mother went to Florida Atlantic University.

I’m currently a Sophomore at The Illustrious Alabama State University and so far my college career has been great. When I first arrived I was nervous being that I was so far from home but once I got settled in I joined freshman organizations like SGA Street Team which led me to branch out and meet new people and join other campus organizations as well.
