Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

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

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

Dr. Michael Thompson who was then the head of the College of Pharmacy clinical department now the Dean. He had so much knowledge and he knew how to break it down for you to understand. His passion made you excited to go to his class everyday. His notes to this day I still have. He also, got to know you. Took time to listen to you if you needed to talk. Very down to earth.

Also, Ms. Deborah Taylor she was an administrator but more for me an advisor. She was my safe spot when I just needed to get away. She allowed me to talk to her thru the rough times to keep me going!
