Can anyone share their experience from Tuskegee University?

I've been researching HBCUs and Tuskegee University has really caught my eye. Could any current students or alumni share what their experience has been like? What should I know that might not be obviously available on the University's website or a brochure?

Hi there! One thing students often mention is the strong sense of community and support among students and faculty. The student-to-faculty ratio is pretty low, which means your classes will likely be more intimate, and professors are more accessible.

Another point that's highlighted often is the University's rich history and pride in its traditions, which isn't something you can fully grasp until you're part of it. From the Annual Homecoming Week to the Tuskegee Homecoming Parade, there is a strong heritage there that's celebrated.

Something that might not come across in brochures is the hands-on experience available through their research facilities, especially if you're interested in engineering or agriculture. Also, some students gain quite a bit from mentorship programs that paired them with alumni in their field, and this kind of networking is invaluable.

If you have the chance, visit the campus to get a true feel for the atmosphere. The human element can really make a difference in your college experience. Best of luck with your decision!
