Where are you from? Who introduced you to HBCUs?*
I choose a HBCU over a pwi because of the college experience… Football classics, homecoming , home Style cafe food etc. WSSU is a small HBCU.
I love the environment at WSSU the student professor ratio is small as well I can get that one on one help with a professor.
Show some love for Winston-Salem State University!!

What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*
Overall my college experience was great … Of course I miss it… That’s why I try to come back for homecoming to see family, friends, old professor etc… WSSU motto is ” a Enter to learn, Depart to Serve” and that’s what I’m doing excited about the next phase of my life.
