I've been living in Tuskegee all of my life. It is a nice quiet and historic town. I would like to see more job opportunities come here. Yes t her are jobs here, but not every one can make it on minimum wages, especially when you have children, car notes and other expenses. The school systems are good. The teachers are good and they don't mind helping the children. They encourage and motivate them to ask questions and reassure them that no question is stupid or doesn't makes any sense. I am attending college to become a nurse so I can become employed in Tuskegee and be able to give back to my community through education, and encourage others to better themselves though education. Life, to me, is a revolving circle. You must contribute, motivate, and encourage others in order to keep the circl going. I love being apart of TUSKEGEE!

Tuskegee is a college town that welcomes all. This southern city is small, but loving. Residents take responsibility for one another and try their best to uphold southern hospitality to maintain the confidence of the area. This town is home to a variety of black owned businesses. Tuskegee University is located less than a mile from the town's square. There are opportunities one could take advantage of here, but there is also much room for growth. This area is not only a food desert but also a food swamp. It is an economically poor area, though the community is rich in support (internal and external). My hope is that more business and financial stability comes to this city so that it may thrive as it once has.
My experience at Tuskegee was great! I attended Tuskegee University which is a Historically Black College or University in 2009. While attending this university I met great friends. I also toured the House of Booker T. Washington and saw his grave site with his wives which is located on the campus. Tuskegee is a small town but the atomsphere is great! There are stores and restaurants for students to shop, sit and mingle. Sometimes I would have to travel to Auburn or Montgomery if I wanted to attend nice events or restaurants or even the mall. Unfortunately Tuskegee doesn't have nice lounges or a mall or walmart. So if you are use to a big city Tuskegee is not the place for you.
