3

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

SSC known now as SSU has given me the experience to handle multiple obstacles at the same time.
It takes tremendous focus to manage school work load, extra curricular activities such as band, sports, Greek life and personal issues.

4

"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*

N/A

5

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

Professors quickly give you the lecture of the pioneers that paved the street for us to be here and the responsibility we had to open the door for students to follow.

HBCUs such as SSU gives us the opportunity to learn in a controlled environment created for blacks. Failure is not an option at a HBCU, 4 -8 years in a HBCU doesn’t matter as long as you graduate.
