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 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.
I enjoyed my time as an undergraduate at Livingstone College. I was a student-athlete, so I had to stay academically motivated in order to play my respective sport. This HBCU campus is very small, with about 1,200 students enrolled. It was a family-oriented atmosphere. Everyone knew your name. I liked the small class sizes and short commute to my classes. I would recommend LC to students who prefer small class sizes and small campuses.
