Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

I came for the culture and enviorment. I wanted to see black people together in a positive setting. I want to be proud of my culture and learn from it.

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

Opportunity is here. That is not just a slogan for marketing but a true fact. I meet people and participated in activities that are not available at most PWIs or their versions are not focused to my likes and interests.

4

"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*

My first Turkey Day Classic was memorable. I saw alumni from generations ago, and shared a tradition that I could be proud of. Marching into the stadium and hearing the roar of fans.

5

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

Dr. Ashbourne and Dr. Oliver both have been big influences. I learned goals are possible and that I can reach a larger community than my original scope.
