Tiona Blyde, Morgan State University- c/o 2013, Political Science
Where are you from? Who introduced you to HBCUs?*
There was a College Bound Representative at my school, Ms. Bajar. She made sure that we understood the difference between HBCUs, Universities and College.
Were your guidance counselors knowledgeable about HBCUs? If not, where did you get all of your information from about the HBCUs you were thinking of attending?
My College Bound Representative was very knowledgeable. She even went as far as allowing us to go on free trips to visit schools around Maryland.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*
I felt that it was very important for me to be around students, professors and administrators who understood what it was like to be in my shoes and who could offer me suggestions to make my experience memorable.
What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*
"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?*
