Livingstone college is an awswome school its all about what you make it. If you like being in a small environment then this is the school for you. it's in a small town with not a lot of things to do. the best thing is that classes are fairly easy if you pay attention. They have a great college, Family Orientated ,Great academics also Great Teachers. Livingstone is all about a second chance in bettering your life.The ability to help young people further their education is bye far one of the best ability to take advantage on. I love my school LC.!
Review Your College
Going to school at Livingstone is all that bad. It's really what you make your experience to be. I'm currently a sophomore and I honestly enjoy it. Lots of people and there's scarcely any drama. Everyone open to new opportunities. It really hard to fail any classes. The Success Center is always open for anyone to get help on work. Tutors are available for anyone struggling in any subject. Being at my HBCU brightens my day. I enjoy the activities, parties, administration, sports and definitely the modeling troupes on campus. The bond that I have with my mentor and his assistant is extremely strong and they open doors for me as well as other who keep up their appearance and grades on campus.
As a current student attending Livingstone College, I would like to see a greater return on my investment. Being a student here is not easy, the locals don't like the students and the surrounding area is very dangerous. But I am a student that will graduate from this institution. This HBCU was founded on the backs of born slaves freed seeking higher education and I'd be dishonoring my people if I wasn't taking advantage of every possible opportunity I can. The school isn't the best of the best but at least I've been given a chance to change my life and be the best I can be.
