Second chances are a gift, not a hand-out. Livingstone College is the ultimate place to receive a second chance.Livingstone College is an important place that is leading me into a bright and successful future. My college experience at Livingstone College has led me to self-discovery, self-improvement and personal growth. My major is Education, and I have been taking courses that are designed for my major. My future career goal is to be an elementary school teacher.Here at Livingstone, they provide the students with the resources to be successful. The Reading and Writing Center helps students write and revise their papers. When I have writers block I go there and receive help. The classroom sizes are scant which allows the teacher to know the students. I enjoy having that because I can receive one on one help.

I am currently a junior at Livingstone College in pursuit of a Bachelors of Art degree in Mathematics. As my third year here, I have grown to love my HBCU. During my freshman year I was in such a hurry to transfer because I only went to class and then right to my room. I wasn’t getting the college experience by doing that. I had to adapt to the atmosphere and the culture here at Livingstone. So,I started by getting involved into extracurricular activities around campus and becoming socially involved with my class. College is truly what you make it therefore I decided to change my ways by stepping outside my comfort zone before I decided to transfer.
I been going to Livingstone college for 4 years since 2014 I enrolled right after I graduated from Central High School. I choose this College because it has good opportunities for me. I love the professors, the dorm rooms, and what I love best is that every professor loves to help their students they don't want anyone to fail. I love the athlete coaches, the campus stay clean. The people here are so polite and well manner like myself, it's comfortable here. The campus us very secured very safe. My freshman year I started off slow but with the help of the professors and others I caught up and got back on track now I'm a senior this year and ready to graduate in December 2018. I met some really nice students here, everyone is willing to help everybody, we study together, we practice together I mean you really feel welcome here.
