Janelle

My overall opinion of Langston University is that it is a very small school but worth it. Everyone knows or sees everyone. Walking to and from class is the easiest walk I've ever had to do. Langston university class is size is about the average class size of a 2a high school, so your teacher will actually know your name and remember you. The teachers care about your involvement and usually incorporate campus activities with school work so students have the chance to get out, see, and engage with one another. Overall Langston is perfect when you're looking for something that isn't over excessive like a D1 institution, but still worth the tuition in comparison.

    If I had a chance to go back and speak with my high school senior self I would walk right up to her and look her straight in the eyes. I would then say "stay focused". I would have a conversation with her about her goals and dreams and the ways to prevent set backs. I would tell her that she needs to be responsible and get herself on birth control since she is sexually active with her partner and use protection always. I would tell her that knee injuries happen all of the time and to remain focused on getting a basketball scholoarship. Opportunities for a student athlete are endless. I'd tell her that she will meet so many new people and travel to many places. There are tones of successful men in this world and she should not focus on this man. If he loves her, he will find her in the future. I would say to her that her future is very bright and that an educated beautiful black woman is powerful.

I find it to be a very beautiful setting when I'm outside walking around campus. The school cost is very little with their help of scholarships and financial aid information.
