Tuskegee University Reviews
Talk about prestige! Not only for Black students , but for others who come and excel in engineering, nursing, vet school and so many more degree programs. I was a product of Basil- the building that built me into the best nurse I could have ever imagined being: strong, confident, intuitive, special, and driven! Tuskegee gave me a grounded education and solid nursing sisters to go through the program with. I "balled" laughing with the friends I made on the yard and "parlayed" down the ave during the times I was free from studying. Nothing takes away from the experiences I enjoyed, whether it be winning the freshman talent show, joining the Golden Voices Concert choir, being a contestant in the Miss Black and Gold Scholarship Pageant, joining the 1st Black sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., serving as treasurer of my beloved sorority, joining the Women's Glee club and graduation itself. There is so much to see, experience, and enjoy in the pride of the swift growing south!
Tuskegee University is a eye opening school. What excited me the most is the environment and how several of historical black achievements have been accomplished. Although, I had basketball offers I decided to attend Tuskegee in the fall semester of August 2019. I'm more than 100% sure that Tuskegee is the school for me. Especially being that I want to become a successful black woman. It's a automatic process being that Tuskegee offers sororities & several other extra-curricular activities. After visiting open house I noticed how the upper classmen were very supportive amongst their other colleagues. Its very apparent and obvious why Tuskegee is one of the top 10 HBCU's. I wouldn't miss the opportunity to attend for anything!
After completing my first semester at Tuskegee University I would say I love it there, everything isn't perfect but I've made a family there and I love my University and I wouldn't change it for the world. The food is college food nothing sometimes good sometimes bad. Some professors are willing to go the extra mile to help you some are not, luck of the draw. The campus is beautiful and rustic but could use some updates. Overall a great school to be. GO GOLDEN TIGERS!
