During my time of going to a HBCU my experience has been great, now most people think when I say when I’m having a great time its with partying hanging out all night and everything else, it wasn’t just partying or having fun but I learned while attending Livingstone college , was that being in college is a privilege.

And the reason why this is a con’s, most companies look at what school you went to, and sometimes that can be a fault. And also you just not are running against the race of African Americans.
