Overall Tuskegee University has been a great experience. I came here when I was only 16 years old, and the environment is very tight and feels very similar to a large family. The fact that this university is private keeps the amount of students relatively low which allows smaller classes and more opportunities for one-on-one teacher to student experiences. Here I am very involved and very familiar with all of my professors and those in my department know me by name. This is extremely helpful because when you have a personal relationship with leaders, it opens more doors for greater opportunities and connections. The Tuskegee experience so far, has been a joy to me and I would encourage any high school students to choose this as their college choice.
Fortunately, there is a lot that I would like to see change I can't see it all happening in a year. I wish the dorms were more architected and fix up these historical buildings. The student life and the involvement of them is what really makes this place worthwhile. You will meet people that might make your experience here truly interesting. I want better working vending machines and better food offered at the cafe. Although it isn't mandatory to eat there, it would be good because sometimes you have to lower your standards and make it work. The good thing is you can choose from a variety of foods I guess. Sometimes, the party scene could really be better but that's alright.
