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

My “experience” at my HBCU has been wonderful from the faculty and staff, to the students and new President and First Gentleman.

They have all played in integral part in making sure that my college experience would be the best possible.

Among many stories, I was honored as a Student Ambassador to escort my President and First Gentleman at the Dayton Classic and stay by them as a personal assistant for that day.

Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?

Applebees, the riblet basket.


College crush?

How did you overcome your nervousness about going to college?

In order to overcome my nervousness about going to college, I simply went to college. The only way to overcome something is by dealing with it. Once I got there, it became easy.

What is your major? and Why did you choose it?

My major is Communications with a Concentration in Broadcast Media. I chose it because I endeavor to be a script writer, director, and producer of plays, movies, and television sit – coms.

The proudest moment at my HBCU was when I got a 4.0 while holding nine titles and also taking 18 credit hours, I didn’t think I would make it to that G.P.A.

What to date has been your saddest moment @ Central State University?

The saddest moment at my HBCU was when I went with a bus full of people to Chicago in order to celebrate the homegoing of a fallen Marauder who was on the football team, this happened during my Freshmen year.

How many “firsts” have you had at college ? What are they? (e.g. first road trip, first job interview, first love, first “F or A”, etc.)

I have had my First Job Interview at college and my First D on a test, but it was brought up to an A.

Describe a situation from your life where this proverb came to life or occurred “The person who grew up without correction will find his mouth slipping instead of his foot.”

I don’t quite understand the proverb.

What is your process when you are going through a hardship that you have never faced before?

When going through a hardship I have never faced, I face it with previously gained knowledge. I may have never been faced with something in particular, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t at one point learned something in the past that can contribute to my dealings with it.
