I love my major! I am a part of Texas Southern's School of Communications as a Communications-Journalism major. Our college advisors are always there to help, our labs stay open long ours, our professors are amazing because they are experienced and most currently work in the field they teach. There are programs and seminars held by our college that give more enlightenment to and experience in our majors, one being the SOC's Communication week. During this week, the college hosts events n the auditorium, bringing in real-life editors, writers, broadcasting journalists, CEO's, you name it, of the fields we are all looking to go into. The college personnel all seem to want each student to survive each business, but what makes it even better is that they push for excellence and not just survival.

There should not be a limitation of Federal Pell Grants and Loans to students in need no matter the length of time they have been working towards completion of their degree or their age. Many students started college after high school and many things have happened such as marriage, increased family where breaks from education had to cease for a time. That's my experience, but the desire never left. Now with my completion nearing after a ten year break, and a restart in 2008, I have to fight to find money to help me complete what I started over 20 years ago and still maintain my household with husband and four children, two being autistic!

Education Is Important – I am currently in the Education program pursuing a degree in Health Studies. I would love to become a Public health Educator and benefit and impact the community the best way I know how. I currently have no concerns about finding a job in my field because there are always openings.I am happy with my program. Texas Southern University has come along way since I first enrolled. It is getting better each day with more graduates each year. TSU still has some improving to do, but I am very proud to attend. Yes, if I could do it all over again I would. I would start over again so I can do things the right way, meaning instead of transferring and taking a semester off just to return a yr and a half later, I wouldn't have. I would have stayed at TSU without transferring. Either way I am back and I love my school more than ever. All in All, education is important and Texas Southern University has shown me that importance!
