Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

When it was time to start thinking about college I really didn't know where i wanted to go, HBCU or PWI. However, my sophomore year in high school i was taken to my first classic. That moment on i researched every HBCU, watched countless videos and already had my mind made up I will be attending an HBCU.

IT'S GAME DAY !

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 was the quad, seeing everybody come together enjoying themselves from the dancing to have fried chicken Friday to praying with one another when we feel like giving up. I honestly can't see myself at another institution besides an HBCU. It is truly a home away from home.

4

"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*

My first time experiences at my HBCU would have to be cheering at my first classic as a freshmen. The moment is unforgettable and priceless. I have dreamed of cheering in college and to be able to have that opportunity was truly a blessing.

5

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

A professor that have impacted me would have to be Professor Boulware. She has always made sure that I knew i wasn't given opportunities if God didn't think i could handle it.
