When I first attended Savannah State University, I admit I did not like it. To the location from the people, it was all a new experience for me. Two years later, I love my HBCU (Historically Black College/University), Savannah State University. Every university/college has its inner problems, but you are the ultimate benefactor. I learned that, the only person to make it the best four years of your life. I joined the school's Newspaper and have participated in various community service opportunities. I also was inducted into the University's chapter in the National Honor Society.

My experience at Savannah State is amazing. The campus is beautiful, the staff is helpful when needed. Academically awesome!
My experience at the university of Savannah state has been phenomenal. The diversity, the food, the academics, the environment, and the freedom all have played big roles in my life as it relates to learning responsibility. My college experience has shown me how to correctly manage my time for the things that are more important than others like doing all of my work before going to a party. Savannah State University has taught me discipline in one of the best ways possible. This discipline has also taught me that in fact "anything i put my mind to I can do". I believe in myself wholeheartedly and as a student at the University of Savannah State i feel as if the faculty and staff believe in me as well. Savannah is my second home to Atlanta anywhere i go I make sure to represent my school by being bold, being respectful, being intelligent and being tiger proud.
