As a transfer, my first semester here was horrible. Most times it seemed as if I had to go all around the world for simple or single piece of information. No one informs anyone about anything! Also when seeking help, the personality in the business offices are pure ugly and full of rudeness! This is "suppose" to be a HBCU, we are suppose to help each other, and not treat each other with attitude. As the "prestigious" HBCU it proclaims to be, Tougaloo is in dire need of great help to make it great again! On the other hand, the education here is great because you will truly learn!!

My overall experience here at Tougaloo College has been a very humble and memorable one. Tougaloo is like a big family made up of a variety of people from different walks of life who desire to reach a common goal in life. The college experience thus far has been fairly benificial to me and it has been a non-stop learning experience. A few things that make Tougaloo College a unique institution of higher learning is the way our school sticks together no matter what in order to help uplift the community in some of the most generous ways. We make sure families have gifts, food and places to enjoy their holidays during Christmas and Thanksgiving time and we also help at risk young adults and troubled youth, through mentorship, realize that life is what you make it and any decision they make will have a consequence. If I had to choose another institution of higher learning I would choose the prestige Tougaloo College a thousand times. I adore my alma mater!
