But after the hype of freshman year went away, I realized that I was just a number to the university and my professors truly didn’t care anything about me excelling academically even though that was what I was paying them to do. So my sophomore year I transferred to PVAMU. I got to know ALL of the professors of my major and the Dean of my college very well and they do everything in their power to make sure I graduate a leader in my field of study.”
Nina Whitfield of Prairie View A&M University (@NinaRoss88)

Henry Funny, Jr. of North Carolina A&T State University (@KiD_HeaRTleSS)
