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!

Tuskegee University is a campus built of family and support. I've never felt unsafe or unsupported during my experience here. On every corner there is another student, a professor, or other faculty members ready to help you with any troubles or issues that occurs. The classes are very innovative and actually teach the students useful knowledge. I’ve also learned the importance of connections while attending Tuskegee University. Every connection that I’ve made on this campus has proven to enhance my education or enhance my experience. Attending this school was one of the best decisions I made for my career. Despite, the few unprofessional encounters I've experienced with a professor, I would still not consider transferring into another university. Tuskegee University is my home.
When they say we are all family it is the truth. Professors work closely with students who are having trouble, and the tutors are are very knowledgeable. The classrooms are small; it is easier to focus on each student not like colleges with 100+ students in each class. Here everyone knows everyone no matter what you are involved in. Every single staff member from whether they are a professor, custodian, or cafeteria worker go above and beyond for the students here. The Alumni provide internships and other extracurricular opportunities for students here, and it is so enlightening. They are the most supportive people I have ever met besides my family back home. Tuskegee is a second home to me. Whether some one joins an organization, sports, or any other extracurricular at the school everyone is family, and we support them. The atmosphere is amazing. I would recommend this college to any one wanting to attend an HBCU and entering the STEM field. Tuskegee is the best choice.
