Tevin Cameron, Central State University- c/o 2013, Psychology
Where are you from? Who introduced you to HBCUs?*
I’m from Mansfield, OH. I’m not sure when I was first introduced to HBCUs.
Staff at Central State advising a student
Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*
I always wanted to attend a HBCU. I couldn’t see myself attending any other type of university. There’s an experience here that you can’t get anywhere else.
Central State Alum ’09, Jazmyne Byrd was a psychology major as well
What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*
I’ve had a lot of great experiences here on campus. One of them would be the trips to Atlanta. I was able to travel to Atlanta with the University for recruitment purposes, often for the Battle of The Band
"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*
Who are the professors that have impacted your life in and out of the classroom? How did they do that?*
Tevin Cameron spends a moment with us to share his HBCU Experience at Central State University.
He tells us how he arrived at the halls of CSU, his favorite professor, and all the experiences he has had thanks to pursuing an higher education after high school at an HBCU.
Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?
I’m actually a fan of Applebees and there is one located close to campus, but if I had to pick somewhere on campus it would be the grill.
