Hello Everyone! I have attended Talladega College since May of 2016, I am now a senior. Talladega is an HBCU located in Talladega, AL. My experience has not been the best, but I am sure I could have experience worse. It is pretty much just your average private institution. You truly get out of it what you put into it. If considering it please be sure your major is available, if not, I strongly suggest another institution. Some programs are great and others however are not. Also, funding circumstances have changed drastically since I first started, again if considering, I strongly suggest you get as much external money (outside institution scholarships) as you can. If I had to rate my overall experience at Talladega College as a whole on a scale from 1-10, I would rate it a 6.

I am a freshman at Talladega College. I live in California and my mom got laid off her job of 3 months after being unemployed fro 3 years. I was also laid off of my job of 6 months. I am 17 years old and I go to a charter school in Gardena. I was accepted to Talladega during a HBCU event, on the spot. It was the first college that accepted me. I would like this money because it can help me in so many ways possible. Thank You!
Talladega College is a wonderful HBCU. It’s a small campus so everybody knows everybody. We consider ourselves one big happy family which is very nice when you are coming to get a HBCU experience.I love that the classes are a good size and if you was to ever need help in any class somebody is always there to help you. There’s a few things that could change about Talladega . We need a football team very bad we have other sports but if we have a football team it will bring a lot of publicity and many future Talladega family. Its a small campus and really nothing around it so if the school was to put more to do around there that would be great! But so far I love my HBCU.I’m very proud to attend a wonderful HBCU .
