Hello there! It's great to hear that you're considering HBCUs for your college experience. In Charlotte, North Carolina, you'll find Johnson C. Smith University – a private, historically black university with a vibrant campus life.

Students at Johnson C. Smith University often engage in a variety of cultural, educational, and social activities that celebrate the rich traditions and history of the African American community. The university offers a range of majors and is known for fostering a tight-knit community where students support one another.

As for the campus vibe, many students appreciate the feeling of belonging and the personalized attention from faculty due to smaller class sizes. If you have the opportunity, I would highly recommend visiting the campus to get a real sense of the environment and talk to current students about their experiences. Best of luck in your college search and feel free to reach out if you have more questions!
