Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

I chose an HBCU for several reasons. Because it feels good attending an institution where everyone looks like you. Second, I love the family atmosphere and how everyone is striving to be the best they can be.

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

My experience was amazing, Wilberforce University is the first black private university. It has a lot of history behind it, WEB DuBois taught there. It also provided slaves an opportunity to receive an education.

"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*

Attending an HBCU introduced me to attending church during the week, due to attending an AME university.

The professor that impacted me the most is Richard Deering, he taught my finance and Money and Banking course. He molded me to strive for excellence in all endeavors of life.
