Networking has become one of the most important tools for the millennial.
It has become less about what you know and more about who you know.
As the world grows closer together on an international basis, it is essential that students become attached to an institution that will aid in this interpersonal bridge.
Fisk University is that aid for many students in this country.
Becoming the president of the Fisk University Student Government Association has allowed me to see, in depth, how great the Fisk brand works for the whole student body.
The Fisk brand has carried many of its budding scholars abroad to London, Beijing, Johannesburg, Geneva and other destinations.
It has also carried many into various professional fields to which they commit themselves to servant leadership. This, however, is not what distinguishes Fisk University from other American higher learning institutions.
The difference between Fisk and other institutions resides in the type of cultivation that takes place.
“Cultivating Scholars & Leaders One by One” is a mantra that the Fisk University administration and faculty pride themselves into chanting.
There is no doubt that this chant is embedded within the Fisk curriculum. Small classrooms and experimental learning are all mechanisms that are utilized by the university to bring the students closer within the greater community.
This closeness is often met with excellence by the student body because of the brand that has been maintained for many years.
The Fisk brand is what continues to bring the millennial generation to Fisk University semester after semester. This inspires many to aspire to become greater legends.
The word “legend” may seem such a massive label to put on young adults, but the type of care and education that Fisk University provides its students can only build such persons.
It is my sincere hope that the Fisk brand continues to reach out not only to the Nashville community but continues to extend throughout the nation while providing hope and a promise to resolve the troubles of the nation.
Fisk will continue to send out her best sons and daughters to answer the call of service. This answer will be echoed by many others who will follow, and Fisk University will continue to impact the world in education, the arts and social change for another 150 years.
