I would not choose another HBCU even if I had the chance to. Alabama State University has taught me so much about myself, as well as the Alabama itself. There are so many opportunities at my HBCU that you would have no choice but to be engaged with the student body. You meet people from all over the world and the education is just wonderful! Not only do the professors teach, but their passionate about it and you learn about life situations as well. I will never forget my experience at Alabama State University, and I will forever be grateful for the friends, professors, and knowledge that I have gained.

I honestly do love my university, but there are small things that the administration can do that will help tremendously. Some of those small things are simply installing water bottle refill systems onto the water fountains in dorms and also purchasing vacuums for the dorms. There are many other things but those are just two things that come to mind. I would also like to see my school treat the band program better. I have been in the band for going on 3 years and the marching band is really the face of the school. We deserve better treatment. I have had most of my best experiences being in the university's marching band. One other issue is the policy for academic scholarships. I graduated from high school as valedictorian but did not get an academic scholarship because they ran out of funds. And the policy for academic scholarships is they are only awarded to incoming freshmen and transfer students.

There are many things that makes Alabama State University unique. Going to a HBCU students will experience black excellence and motivation from alumni, including others around the school. Since, my freshmen year at Alabama State University, I have created a bond with students and staff around the campus and I have enjoyed an variety of activities that kept the excitement about school alive. We have an excellent library and student center that is provide to us. Also, we have different labs such as the writing lab, history lab ,math lab , science lab and reading lab that help students with their assignments and exams; each lab has a tutor and free printing available for students. As a result, if I could do it all over again I will still chose Alabama State University because I really have enjoyed my two years there living on campus. The professors, staff and student body have shown that they do care about our future and wellbeing on campus. So, there is no other school I will rather attend.
