Why did you choose to join
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.?
“Attending an HBCU was a new experience in social interactions and relationships with students from all over the country. I thought about relationships back home, relationships with former teachers, church members and community members. These were people I looked up to and really respected and they were all AKAs. So the choice of joining a sorority was pretty easy. I told my ‘young’ self, ‘go with what you know’.”
Most memorable moment at your institution
“There were so many but if I had to choose one, it would be making the cut for the TSU Aristocrat of Bands. As a member of the TSU Flag Corp, the daily and nightly practices were difficult and grueling, but the opportunities to travel to other college campuses, perform at NFL games, meet new people was life-changing and at the top of my list of memories at TSU.”
What advice would you give to an incoming freshman?
“Immerse yourself not only in your studies but also into campus life. Step out of your comfort zone and attempt to do things you never thought you would do.”
Why should a student select TSU?
“TSU and Nashville have expanded in so many ways since my time there. As students make their decisions about schools and programs of study I would point out that TSU has always been a leader in preparing students for careers in engineering, health related fields, internship experiences, athletics and more.
Good luck at TSU!”
