Tour Guide at Bowie State University
Class of 2021
Hometown: Baltimore, MD
I knew that I wanted to attend an HBCU because of the rich history behind freed slaves paving the way when there was no way to achieve education through a system that was against them. The fact that Bowie State was Maryland's first HBCU gave me a strong sense of pride before I even attended. I also knew I wanted to do something with computers and I really liked the look of Bowie's Computer Science and Technology programs.
The New Student Center is my favorite building because it's the perfect blend of leisure, study/academics, eateries, student organizations and the game room. It's a welcoming and cozy environment that I enjoy being in when I need to wind down or buckle down to take the time to do my school work.
Bowie State has plenty of opportunities for everyone to be successful and it's small enough for everyone to have a bond of some sort. I love how Bowie State is a family-like environment.
