Curtis Bunn , Norfolk State University- c/o 2013, Journalism & Mass Communication with a concentration in Print Journalism
Where are you from? Who introduced you to HBCUs?*
I grew up in Washington D.C., and really did not like the snow and cold weather of the winters.
Read “Baggage Check” the first chance you get!
Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*
I was totally unfamiliar with HBCUs until a counselor suggested Norfolk State. He had heard it had a strong journalism program, and he knew I wanted to be a journalist.
