Tuskegee is a great school that challenges students to be academically, and socially excellent. Although the school is not in an especially large or modern area, there's tons of room for growth in the city and the student body. I wouldn't choose to attend anywhere else, because my experience has been phenomenal. The people and experiences you have are the largest takeaway from my personal experience.

The ILLUSTRIOUS Tuskegee University is a great school in my opinion. It is the only college or university in the United States to be designated a National Historic Site by the U.S. Congress. Because of that, it is a little old and outdated but nothing too terrible. Tuskegee also ranked 4th among the nations best Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) for the year 2021 by US News & World Report.


I have honestly enjoyed my time at this school. The classrooms can be small so you can get help from professors easily. The community of the students is great. There is a group for everyone. The history and tradition of the school is great and it makes me happy to be a student there.


I love Tuskegee University. The school has something to offer everyone. There are opportunities for growth in every aspect. As you matriculate through Tuskegee University you grow, you learn and you are ultimately cultivated to become a world leader and professional.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    College is an experience like no other. It is your time in life to make a statement about not only who you are but who you want to become. It is a once in a life time chance, so make every moment last. With that being said, it is important to remember why you are there. The college you chose after a careful elimination process is the one you will be with for the next four or maybe five years and graduate with a Chemical Engineering degree. You will encounter people and situations that you have never experienced before. The only advice I can give is to be smart, and think twice about every move you make. The parties and the boys will always be there but the deadline for that term paper is Monday! No one said that school would be easy but it will be fun. New doors will open up to you and you need to know which ones to close and which ones to embrace the journey that lies ahead. More than anything always put your best foot forward because it is a great feeling of accomplishment to see your hard work pay off.
