My overall experience at Langston University has been very inclusive, fun and memorable. I’ve experienced more at my institution than I have at my regular home state and I am grateful for the people I’ve met and opportunities I have been given. Going to an HBCU has changed my life and I now feel that I am able to have multiple outlooks out life and apply what I’ve learned in school to the outside world!

Being at the only Historically Black College University in Oklahoma has definitely taught me things I didn’t not know about African American people. It is not a big campus, but the people make it so much more than the campus. They provide resources to further go in depth into your education such as tutors, English center (to help with writing), and the library of course is always open for use. When we had to switch to online courses the professors communicated for well to ensure that we were completely capable of getting the assignments needed to do the work in order to complete the class. Although I was not very fond of online classes I think Langston University communicated with its students very well due to the pandemic.
I hate that Langston has such a bad reputation in the state of Oklahoma because it's their only HBCU and Oklahoma is very racist. I wish everyone would see the wonderful things we do on campus instead of all the "incidents". We have the top goat research facility in the world, people come to visit and contact us just to help them with their clinical trials and studies. As well as we work with NASA on how to help an astronaut's immune system while in space and what works better herbs and remedies or western medications while they are in space.
