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

I would have to say the first time I step foot on the grounds of a place that I had heard so much about, seen so many pictures of and learned so much history about. However, it was just being there; right there, where my family members had been, greatness was born, famous people had gone, it was surreal.

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

I would have to say Dr. Zaman (Anatomy and Physiology Instructor at the time) he was always dedicated to “education” first. Rain, sleet, shine or snow [not often in MS] we were having class. I always admired him for that; I actually didn’t think he liked me at all, but “hind sight’s” 20/20. I know now that he only wanted us to be serious and focused. Even today I think of his drive.

6

What sports do/did you play at your HBCU? What positions?

N/A

7

FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America), choir, Science club, Drama, and few others, it’s been over 19 years since High School, sorry I can’t remember.

8

Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?

I actually liked the food in the Union. I loved the Philly cheese steaks. Later on while attending Alcorn, I found this place right off campus on “the stretch”, sadly I can’t remember the name of it, it was owned by a gentleman who was quite friendly. Nonetheless, his Philly chicken sandwiches were INSANELY good! I still remember how they taste!

College crush?
