The HBCU experience is like no other and I wouldn’t change it for the world. I love the people I’ve met from all over and the different cultures all mixed together. It’s a bit pricey, but I love being there so much I’ll do whatever it takes to stay there. The administration can be a bit of headache but if you can get through that it’s really a wonderful school!

My overall experience at Tuskegee University has been pretty good. The best part would have to be the social interactions. You meet some great people here, make some connections, social networking. And they events and activities are fun as well. I feel like they could work on the academics and faculty though. Some of the teachers just make it difficult to learn anything there and the faculty needs some extreme help they will having you running around the school just to get one thing accomplished. One person is telling you something and another is telling you something totally different. They need to work on there work ethic and communication. Other then that Tuskegee University is a great school.
Its an amazing school! Beautiful campus, active students and staff and welcoming community. There are hundreds of organizations to join, so you will always fit in somewhere. Great sports teams and exciting functions.
