Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are a group of individuals of which the majority are well-balanced, focusing mainly on school but who still participate in social activity.

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

The advice I would give to students and parents alike would be to make sure you/your young adult is fully prepared for the change of environment that college includes. While college is a great opportunity both academically and socially, it is also a huge responsibility. It was in college that I learned most of my independence. Even if you believe that you are ready for the transition you should make sure that college is the right avenue to travel. College can be a fun and rewarding experience if you adequately learn and take full advantage of the opportunities availabe for you and prepare yourself in advance. If you are prepared both mentally and academically college can be an opportunity any individual can both enjoy and profit from.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The type of person that should not attend this school would be an individual who is not academically focused. The coursework at my university demands that you remained focused and centered on your career goal.

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

i would encourage students to pick the school that they feel will support their goals and that the school is just right. Pick the school that will support you financially. Also, it's important to pick the school that offered you the most money for a scholarship. Make sure that students actually visit the school of your chioce before making any decisions because the school of your chioce may not be whqat you had expected it be. So make sure that you pick the school in which you feel at home and comfortable.

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

When it comes to finding the best college for you or your child the first part to look at is cost after that location. Once you've narrowed it down to what you think is affordable and a reasonable distance you continue your cost evaluation because every school gives different amounts of financial aid. If you have numerous choice you should try your best to visit those campuses because brochures and websites can only tell so much and besides there nothing a firsthand experience. After deciding what school in order to make the best of your experience make school your priority because if you like it there your going to want to stay so grades are a must. But once you have your work under control then try to join different clubs and organizations on campus to have so sort of impact on your campus. If that doesn't sound like your kind of thing then sports are always there for you to try varsity and intramural its a great way to stay fit and have fun with friends doing something you enjoy. In the end college will be the most memorable part of life so make it the best!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Creative and open minded people should come to Tuskegee University. If they are really serious about their school work but still like to have fun at times then this is the place for them. School spirit and togetherness are two of the many things that make Tuskegee the place it is, once you get to witness first hand what we call the "Tuskegee Experience" they will never want to leave!

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is best known for numerous reasons. First, the college of engineering is one that attracts numerous employers. The college produces top engineers that have gone on to work for companies such as Procter and Gamble, Southern Comapny, and John Deere. The Veterinary School is also known because it produces the most African-American veterinarians than any other school. The football team is the 'most winningest' Historically Black College or University football team in history. My school is also best known for its beautiful campus.

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

When searching for the perfect fit, one always seems to pick a place where they feel comfortable, even when it comes to college. Choosing the right colege can be difficult because you can never truly get a feel for the environment until you are actually a part of it. Fortunately, some colleges offer opportunities for future students to get a sneak peak of the college life by paring them with college students for three days. This allows students to eat, learn, and live amongst the college community they are curious about. I suggest that students participate in such experiences so that they can find that good fit. Other factors such as the weather, distance from home, student population, class size, and majors available should be considered when a student is looking for the right fit. In order to make the most out of the college experience one must get involved. Joining clubs and organizations on campus allows students to meet new people with whom they may share common interests with. Many students return home after their first year of college because they say they feel as if there wasn't enough to do on campus. You make your experience.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school is the comradery amongst the students. Some of the students are very cliquish and don't make the time to meet new people. They get so caught up in their appearance and ego that they forget about the reason they came to Tuskegee University in the first place: to learn. The same students always come out to events on campus; others feel that if sports or greeks aren't involved, then the event isn't worth supporting. There is little unity amongst this community and this must change.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

We are best known for the social network of alumni that allow students to get good jobs and interships all over the country. People also know Tuskegee because it is the institution that was founded by Booker T. Washington in 1881.

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

The best advice I can give any parent or student is that the college or university that a student chooses must fit the needs and wants of that student. In a lot of cases the parents of the students try to suggest schools that they want their child to go to simply based on traditional merits of that school. For example, if you were to ask any parent what type of school they want their child to attend, many would say someplace like Havard, MIT, or Yale. Now, there is no denying that these are excellent schools, but every student is not prepared to excel at these institutions whether it be in an academic sense or a social sense. So, the best thing for the parents and students to do is to research possible schools based on what will best fit for them in terms of their needs and wants.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

No one who needs to be in a big city environment, isn't open to new people, or does not like to study independently should attend this school.

Go with your gut feeling. I didn't know where I was gonna go until the tail end of my senior year. I applied to several different schools, and were accepted. I saw Tuskegee in a booklet and decided to apply. Once I was accepted there, I knew that's what was meant for me.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who's comfortable with all walks of life. Someone who doesn't need to live in the big city to have fun.
