Orientation season is winding down, and incoming freshmen are starting to feel the butterflies of venturing off into this new chapter full of possibilities, opportunities, a new environment, and new people. If no one hasn’t warned you by now, attending an historically black college or university (HBCU) is going to be a compilation of some of the best years of your life, both academically and socially, and the individuals you encounter from this point on are going to have a huge influence on how these next 4-5 years go.
