Tougaloo College Reviews
Tougaloo has a lot to offer academically. I was very impressed during the summer science program I attended in 2017. My greatest accomplishment was my ability to be the student during the summer science program to receive the overall student achievement. Not only was I surprised, I was absolutely elated. I value the academic challenge Toygaloo offers. Tougaloo is a private historic kept secret and many people are not aware of the opportunity that this great HBC can offer. The alumni association is also very encouraging and supportive in more ways than one, but I also have to say the campus can use a more modern updated look. Tougaloo has been around a long time and mostly all funds come from private donors, with that in mind I understand that the funds are used for people like me to be funded for college books, housing and etc and that can be very costly. If I could change just one thing I would surely hope this would be the one thing that could possibly be changed.
Tougaloo College is such an outstanding school with many perks. The academic system that they have established here sets high standards that requie the students to earn everything that they are given. This college helps each individual learn, prosper, and become great assets to many business & other establishments after graduation. Its an awesome school to attend!
The food is not that great but the professors make up that. They are supportive and wants students to achieve and excel, putting in work while being readily available if a student needs extra help with comprehension.
