What attracted you to Bowie State University?

Bowie State University seemed like a school that truly valued the importance of higher education within the black community. As the oldest HBCU in the state of Maryland I knew this would be a school that prepared its students well for life after graduation.

Why did you choose your major?

For as long as I can remember, I've always drawn to the Criminal Justice field. I strongly believe in being the change that you want to see in the world, and through a Criminal Justice degree, I will do just that.

What sets Bowie State University apart from other schools?

Bowie State University capitalizes on black excellence, and providing students with the skills they need to maximize their success. Bowie State urges you to find strength and take pride even through the toughest of times, and that is why I love my HBCU

Which building is your favorite and why?

My favorite building is the Martin Luther King building. The auditorium holds approx. 1,000 people, it is a place where we as a campus gather during convocations and other ceremonies. Attending these ceremonies, singing and rallying next to my peers, really makes Bowie feel like a family.
