My first year as a Freshman at Shaw U was a little rocky. As time went on I was able to build new relationships with students and professors/teachers. I took advantage of everything that was offered such as tutoring and joining active groups on campus.

I love the classroom environment. The professors are always trying to keep us engaged and offer extra help when needed.
