Coming from a majority white high school, joining Morehouse college gifted me a complete new feel as I finally received the chance of experiencing black culture one on one. As a freshman, everything is new to a person as they must self discipline themselves to stay on top of their academics. As Morehouse may not be as efficient on customer service, relationships with professors are created as students have ample opportunities to meet during office hours. The campus itself could be renovated but overall, it presents a welcoming feeling.
The experiences i have encountered at Morehouse College makes it hard to believe i have only been there for two semesters. I have met worthwhile friends as well as met inspirational individuals and listened to breath taking speeches on motivation and persistence, Morehouse College is in the process of grooming me into the ideal man. I recognize that it is not at many colleges where you meet individuals within your own year group who aspire to excel and encourage you to do the same. Many times i have been taken aback due to the maturity and scholarly attitude of individuals my own age, it is as if Morehouse had hand selected each individual not only by academic achievement but by personality as well. These aspects are what makes my college unique, Morehouse College is not an HBCU for idling however, lives up to its tradition of creating renaissance men.
Morehouse is truly a great institution that strives to perpetuate Black male excellence. Through its long history and unwavering contribution to the betterment of the global community, Morehouse College is a genuine beacon of light that stands as that candle in the dark. Even though there are some flaws in the administration and student body, overall, Morehouse remains a great and thriving institution. However, I do believe that the college places most of its merit on the legacy of the late Dr. Martin Luther King. It is now time for the current students, like myself, to rally and engender a new and more present legacy.
