Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*
I chose an HBCU over a PWI, because I wanted the opportunity to delve into my history more than a PWI would allow me to do.
What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*
My HBCU experience is purely described by growth.
While at my HBCU (Central State University), I grew into a woman.
I learned how to take care of my own business, while still having time for fun. CSU taught me the essence of a well-balanced lifestyle.
My HBCU experience couldn’t be traded for all the money in the world. I LOVE MY CSU!
"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?*
Mr. Kenyal McGee left a major impression on my academic and personal life.
He made me work so hard during his course that I thought it would never end.
All the work he gave was fully relevant to his course, so my hard work resulted in an “A” in his course. To this day, he still communicates with me to make sure that I am staying on track.
