Please share your academic or social experience at your HBCU, your favorite class, hang-out joint, homecoming game, student center, on or off-campus party, and Greek show. If you pledged a fraternity or sorority, we want to hear about those stories too. The goal is to use your Story to promote and uplift the HBCU brand. Your HBCU prepared you for success, and now we want everyone to read about a real HBCU Experience.
