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

The story of my experience at my HBCU is Leadership transformation and Revolutionary Enthusiasm. So many times we forget the essence of who we are as students. Central State constantly reminds me that the leader I am being transformed into is preparing me for my future as an educator.

N/A

5

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

Dr. Latson.

She goes beyond what she really has to just to ensure that we are secure in the knowledge we gain. She is always making herself available to the students. As a future educator, this simple thing spoke volumes for me.

Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?

The best restaurant on campus is the grill. They have amazing chicken and turkey wraps.

7

College crush?

My College crush was a football player from my freshmen year. I never knew his name, I just knew that he looked good and he had a nice smile.
