I really do love my school! It is a historical black college, so expect some of the facilities to be also historical. It's a beautiful campus with most buildings made of bricks! Going from California to Alabama was a culture shock within itself. I can say that I truly adapted well. Tuskegee is a rural place, so you can really imagine the differences coming from a city going to a rural town. It is a great experience that we love to call the 'Tuskegee Experience'. People on the outside looking in may not understand it, but those of us who went through all four years understand the struggle and how it taught us to overcome adversity and taught us so much humility! Oh how I love my Mother Tuskegee! My home away from home. I would advise prospective students to attend with a very open mind, make the most of your experience, and find a lesson in everything. It was, and is a truly wonderful experience!
