Where are you from? Who introduced you to HBCUs?*
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?*
I went into A&T on a full academic scholarship and graduated early. I attribute all my success to the relationships I was able to build with my peers and my educators. The support, guidance and encouragement that was given to me felt like that of a family that I don’t believe I could have gotten anywhere else.
"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?*
Dr. Myra Shird and Dr. Sandra Alexander actually gave me information to use for life as opposed to teaching me the subject matter. Both professors shared their experiences with me and offered themselves as mentors to help me in my quest to become my family’s first college graduate.
Best restaurants on/near campus? Best dishes?
Anybody who spent time at A&T is familiar with Cookout, Elizabeth’s Pizza, Libby Hill and Bojangles. My friends and I spent more money at Cookout on milkshakes and fries than any of us care to admit.
A football player name Ivan Butler. I wonder whatever happened to him.
