North Carolina Central Universty'94

I love attending an HBCU because they take care of you. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts from North Carolina Central University and I obtained two Masters degrees and my doctorate from another HBCU, Fayetteville State University. My college days were the best and if I could I would go back and relive it again. I met a lot of great people, attended classes, had great professors, and would attend the football games. Some of my favorite moments would be hanging out at the Student Union. They had great food and we would sit outside and have the best conversations. It was like a big family reunion at times. In our dorm rooms, we would order pizza, play Spades, and play our music. It was so fun. My professors really had a genuine concern for my education and well-being. I had a great experience at both colleges. Attending an HBCU is the best!
