Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

I started at Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO), but transferred to Tulane University because I felt Tulane had more to offer. However, once I arrived on Tulane’s campus, I felt like an ink spot in the crowd of pale faces. I could no longer share textbooks w/ friends, make copies of the chapters, and “rib” other students. The cost of Tulane’s tuition on my limited budget sent me back to SUNO.

3

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

Upon returning to SUNO, I had the opportunity to intern with the Vice Chancellor for Community Outreach/Univ Advancement. Shadowing Mrs. Moultrie (SUNO graduate ’67) allowed me the opportunity to understand the important history behind Southern University at New Orleans.

5

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

N/A

6

What sports and/or extra curricular activities did you do in High School? And why?

I was lazy in high school and didn’t participate in much of anything except attending the dances.

7

Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?

SUNO is a small university (for now), with just over 3,000 students. We don’t have any restaurants on campus. To get the best bang for my buck, I would hit up Spicy Kitchen. Their soulfood is sooo delicious

8

College crush?

No one. Actually, I was falling in love with myself. Is this vain of me to say?
