I’m from The Eastside of Detroit,MI. My High School counselor

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*
It’s motivational being around people that look like me and who want to be Great
What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*
My experience here a Lane College has been great so far. I really like the small class sizes and the one on one learning that I can get with my professors. Being here gave me different look on life.

"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?*
Ms. Nicole Anderson & Dr. Barbara Perry. They have really been in my corner to help me become great. I know I can always count on them. When my brother passed away almost 2 months ago they stayed checking on me to see how I was doing. It’s been a hard 2 months & they really have been there helping me and making sure I’m okay.
