2

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

I actually attended two other colleges before I chose MSU. When I went for a visit there before finishing up my sophomore year at CENTRAL ARIZONA COLLEGE, I fell in love. It was different. The people were intelligent. Their mind set displayed characteristics of individuals I wanted to be around.

3

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

Well I kept busy. I was a college track athlete. I took 20hrs+ every semester except my last. I would say I was very focused because I had a lot on my plate and failure was not an option.

4

"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*

I was in culture shock. I wasn’t used to seeing so many people that looked like me. I felt like I actually fit in for once.

5

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

Professor Eric Dodson. Amazing man. Great professor. He really taught us how to think. My mind was constantly challenged. To this day I will see a Facebook post or something of his and I will analyze it. Nothing he ever says is what it appears. There is always deeper meanings to everything. Critical thinking.
