Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*
Majority of the people I knew went to PWI but when I spoke with some that went to a HBCU, and they told me about their experience.
What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*
HBCU they told me about their experience and instill important information in about why Lincoln came about in 1866 by the 62nd and 65th Colored Infantry Soldiers. Lincoln was founded by these war veterans who took there last to help African American get a quality education. I feel as if I could benefit from going to a HBCU.
"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?*
Its a lot of people who has impacted my life and career while attending Lincoln. I thank my advisor Terry Moore and Professor Mathews for teaching and aiding me to learn all that I could before entering the real world.
They both provided me with quality information about the Criminal Justice System. They still to this day allow me to use them as references. They helped me stay focused and taught me to not give up on my dreams because of others, not even family.
What sports do/did you play at your HBCU? What positions?
What sports and/or extra curricular activities did you do in High School? And why?
Band and Track. I felt as if I could benefit and others could benefit from me being apart of that partucular organization.
Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?
Starbucks on campus and their Bagels w/ Steawberry Creme Cheese.
