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

My story at Dillard is one of triumph. Beginning my freshman year, I knew that I belonged at the top. And that is what I shot for. I was apart of every council thought of. From Sophomore Class Parliamentarian, Junior Class President and Student Government Association Treasurer, I made sure that Dillard knew my name and the face that went with it. Becoming an inaugural member of the Collegiate 100 Black Men of Dillard University was an amazing success in itself. At the time I could not grasp the power that we as black men would soon have on campus, but it was and still is being shown on the Gleaming White and Spacious Green.

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

The first professor that comes to mind when thinking of an influence is Professor S. Carver Davenport. He is a Professor of Music and the director of the illustrious Dillard University Concert Choir (DUCC), which I was apart of. Dr. Davenport revealed to me a side of Music I was never aware of. He humbly explained the idea of Ethos, which means that Music has the effect on the emotions. He is a world renown teacher and instructor and I am forever in his debt

Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?

Well on campus everyone eats in Kearny Hall for lunch. We would have Red Beans and Rice with Fried Chicken on Mondays and Fried Fish with Mac n Cheese of Fridays. Every week. (“Kearny Hall is is the center of student activities on campus. Administrative offices for Student Affairs, the Student Government Association, the student yearbook, and the Courtbouillon (Dillard’s student newspaper) are housed on the first floor of Kearny. A student lounge and, short order grille and convenience store are also located in Kearny. The dining hall occupies the second floor.”)
