The faculty, facilities, and policies at my University add more stress than necessary, in addition to school, and the transition into adulthood. However, the love and spirit that I have for Tuskegee - the love and spirit instilled in me during my college tour as an applicant - remains. I will forever be a Golden Tiger! It is my first priority, relevant to my short term goals, that my degree comes from Tuskegee University. My school is keen on tradition, which at times can be a hindrance, but I am very proud to be a product of my University. I want to be able to say that through all the joys, laughs, triumphs, setbacks, and failures, I made it to the finish line. If I had the chance to do it all again, ideally I would never make the choice of going to my school, consequently if granted this decision, I would not be the woman I am today. The woman I fight hard to be. I love my HBCU!
