Many of my peers that graduated from my program are close friends of mine. Between these students and professors I feel well equipped to handle any and everything in my future career. Any Alumni that I meet from here has always embraced me with a warm greeting and extended a helping hand in any endeavor that I wanted to pursue. Career services, though underrated, is a fantastic aid to use!

My overall experience here at Albany State University has been phenomenal. With the campus not being very big makes campus life better as well. You can actually walk around and remember people's names and feel like a family. The best part that I like about Albany State is the classroom sizes. The largest classes I've been in was roughly forty students. That's a perfect size. The classroom isn't very crowded, and you can actually form a relationship with your teacher. Compared to your bigger schools like the University of Georgia, where you mat have one hundred students in an auditorium with one teacher. It's nearly impossible for that one teacher to remember every student name, or if you're like me, it'll be very hard to learn in an environment like that.

Being a part of the Greek Life here on campus I feel that Greek life has slowly diminished in value. The sole purpose behind most Divine nine organizations is being of shadowed by the stereotypes and socialized concepts that has been fed or embedded into campus life as a whole. When I joined my fraternity I had burning passion to serve not only the university that housed me but the community that surrounded me. The trivial disagreements between fraters and Soros of different and sometimes the organizations are at an all time high and they must end in order to ensure productivity. A revival or reminder is called for in order to readjust the vision of the members of these organizations. We are more than social entities with elitist complexes, we are the future leaders of our community and we have to regain sight of that again. The front runners for pivotal moments in our history (Civil Rights Movement, Harlem Renaissance, etc.) for the most part were members of these prestigious organizations. They are no different from us besides the conscious decision to make a difference and to stand boldly in that decision.
