Where are you from? Who introduced you to HBCUs?*
For high school seniors and incoming freshman Claflin University offers the Alice Carson Tisdale Honors Scholarship
Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*
What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*
I wouldn’t say my “experience” has a story. It’s more of a routine. Study. Go to class. I’m just going through the motions that are required for me to get into medical school.
"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?*
As a person, I don’t think of my professors make an impression on me. As a student, Dr. Wooten- Blanks and my mentor, Dr. Panasik, have made an impression on me due to the expectation they have for me.
Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?
I don’t go to many restaurants in Orangeburg, SC.
I don’t have one.
