Tougaloo is a small HBCU with a rich history! This is a private institution with a family feel. The teachers care about the students and work to prepare them for the next level in their lives as they leave the nest of the Eagle Queen. This is an experience of a lifetime!
As a transfer, my first semester here was horrible. Most times it seemed as if I had to go all around the world for simple or single piece of information. No one informs anyone about anything! Also when seeking help, the personality in the business offices are pure ugly and full of rudeness! This is "suppose" to be a HBCU, we are suppose to help each other, and not treat each other with attitude. As the "prestigious" HBCU it proclaims to be, Tougaloo is in dire need of great help to make it great again! On the other hand, the education here is great because you will truly learn!!
