I love my school. The atmosphere is family-like, and my professors strive to provide each student in the engineering department a research or intern opportunity for each year. I am blessed to attend my HBCU, and I would not trade the experience for any other school. We are the #1 Producer of African-American Female Engineers and African-American Aerospace Engineers, and I am next!
Review Tuskegee University
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!
I like Tuskegee due to the fact of the great amount of history that it has, and you can feel it as you walk around the campus. Since I am working to join the Air Force, Tuskegee was kinda the best choice in that regard. Plus it was a simple two hour drive away from where I live, and Tuskegee has a legendary history when it comes to the Air Force. Plus the student interactions are great, we all understand that we are going to have a hard time here and formed a great bond, becoming a bit of a family, same can be said for the people in my Air Force detachment. But there are a lot of things that the school can change, ranging from the old and rundown dorms, to the vacant and ruined building that litter the campus. The could really do something to put those buildings to use at least.
