Christopher  McCall, Tuskegee University- c/o 2013, History

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

An HBCU was the first place to accept me.


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

I started school at Tuskegee University in the fall of 2008. I was a shy kid from Montgomery, Alabama. I met a lot of different people from all across the nation. I broke out of my shell a little bit during the 2008-2009 school year. I really broke out of my shell during the 2009-2010 school year. I gain close to 90 pounds my freshman year.

I lost a lot of that weight during the summer but I gained it back in my sophomore year. I have had a struggle with weight during my time in college. I joined the track team in the spring of 2010. I ran for the senator-at-large during the 2010-2011 school year and won. I held this position during the 2011-2012 school year.


"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*



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

I can’t really say, because they all have left some type of impression on both my academic and personal life. They teach me about stuff that is essential in life.


Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?

The best restaurants on campus are located in Margaret Murray Washington Hall. They just recently changed the names of the two restaurants, but their original names were WoW and Jazmine’s. Liked the tenders at WoW.
