I love my school. The atmosphere is family-like, and my professors strive to provide each student in the engineering department a research or intern opportunity for each year. I am blessed to attend my HBCU, and I would not trade the experience for any other school. We are the #1 Producer of African-American Female Engineers and African-American Aerospace Engineers, and I am next!

The faculty, facilities, and policies at my University add more stress than necessary, in addition to school, and the transition into adulthood. However, the love and spirit that I have for Tuskegee - the love and spirit instilled in me during my college tour as an applicant - remains. I will forever be a Golden Tiger! It is my first priority, relevant to my short term goals, that my degree comes from Tuskegee University. My school is keen on tradition, which at times can be a hindrance, but I am very proud to be a product of my University. I want to be able to say that through all the joys, laughs, triumphs, setbacks, and failures, I made it to the finish line. If I had the chance to do it all again, ideally I would never make the choice of going to my school, consequently if granted this decision, I would not be the woman I am today. The woman I fight hard to be. I love my HBCU!

Housing is only relatively good if you stay in an honors dorm. Other housing options including off campus living and on campus apartments are literally atrocious. Last semester the school ran out of space, and had to force students to stay in the hotel on campus! Amenities are sparse, maintenance is sparse, cleanliness is sparse, space is sparse, and although some dorms have been refurbished, it still feels like they just painted over the cracks.
