Tour Guide at Bowie State University

Class of 2021

Hometown: Washington, DC

Major: Elementary Education

Why did you choose your major?

I choose my major because I believe education is the light of the world. With education all things can be done. It is my belief that we MUST start investing in our children and their well being instead of ourselves and our gratification.

What sets Bowie State University apart from other schools?

Not only is BSU the first and oldest HBCU in Maryland. But BSU is dedicated to inspiring and teaching students the fundamentals of life to be successful scholars and professionals.

What attracted you to Bowie State University?

I was attracted to BSU because of the rich history of finer education and the nurturing environment cultivated here at the university. Additionally, the connections and prestige of BSU’s college of education has in the surrounding areas and nation.

Which building is your favorite and why?

James E Proctor. This building is my favorite building because it is home to the college of education and has lots of natural lighting. The large windows bring lots of light into the building which is very comforting to me. Additionally, the Proctor building overlooks the center of our university, the flame of knowledge. The knowledge flame is one of our scared areas. Here at the flame, the fire always burns bright shining the values of BSU to all of our students.
