"I never knew anything about HBCUs until my senior year of high school. I was sure I was going to a PWI, until a friend of mine told me to check out Spelman because it would be perfect for me. I had no idea how right she was until I visited the campus and fell in love. I was surrounded by hundreds of black women who were just like ME. It was a place to be empowered, nurtured, and loved. It was a place to hold my head high and be proud that I was a black woman. Spelman taught me so much about myself that I didn't even know I needed to learn. Through the beautiful times and the dark times, I learned to be a woman who stood for something. I learned to be a woman that's passionate, creative, innovative, and ground breaking. I am the first in my household to graduate college, and starting an HBCU legacy is so important to me and my future family. Without Spelman, and the culture of HBCUs I would not be who I am today. I found myself and I found God on that campus. I am forever grateful that I can call myself a Spelman woman." #WhyHBCU #SpelmanCollege #HBCU #HBCUPride

"Coming from Fort Worth, Texas, Agoro says attending Morehouse was more of a cultural blessing than a cultural shock. Back home, he says black men are often viewed as nothing more than entertainers and candidates for sports such as football.

But Agoro, a photojournalist, wants to dispel that perception. The 22-year-old African Studies major and two-sport athlete started his own company, the AUC Cam, a media outlet that captures professional African-American students on campus.

Agoro runs the company with three friends, taking photos of black men and women in business attire. He also catches students taking action on campus, including a recent protest against violence and sexual assault.

When he's not in classes, playing sports or taking photos, Agoro volunteers with inner city youth. He shows them how to work a camera.

I was able to show them how to shoot with a camera, not a gun.
And sometimes Agoro speaks in third person"

"Being asked why I chose an HBCU is a very important question to me! I grew up in a fortunate, predominantly white community in the suburbs of Maryland. In school, I would usually be the only black student in class. Growing up in a community where you are always reminded about being different, based off of skin color, created the strong desire to be around people who looked like me! Well, both my Mother and Step Father are graduates of Howard University. Hearing the stories about their experiences at their HBCU really captivated me and I only wanted the same for myself. Going to homecoming as a young child was like being in a completely different world, I had never been surrounded by so much black excellence and good times. So, I made it a priority to attend an HBCU! Now at Morehouse, beyond my academics, there was so much I learned about myself and my black identity. HBCUs are a place of comfort and self expression. With less racial boundaries, we are able to authentically pursue our interest, passions, and explore new roads. WhyHBCU? Well, I wouldn't be as whole as I am today, as I step out into the "real world", without my HBCU." #Morehouse #WhyHBCU #HBCU #HBCUPride

"As our journey comes to an end (😢), I want everybody to know that it does not get better than this group of young aspiring doctors right here. I truly believe every single man right here will make it and become something special which we need right now here in the United States of America. I learned a lot from each and every one of you. You truly made my summer one of the best I had in a little while now. I wish you all the best. I considered you all my brothers for life, I hope one day we can come together and look back at this program and see how far we came.

"God has kept me and pushed me. I am thankful for those moments where I wanted to give up because I not only became a stronger person, but I realized that there are younger generations watching the steps I take.

"Last night I had the honor of attending the 2017 HBCU Digest Awards in DC. It was a great event full of great people all working toward a common goal, but who are changing the world in so many different ways. Incredibly proud to have been able to represent the Hill-George "Resurgent" Administration, and accepting the award for BEST SGA. We were petty, but productive and impactful. Also, thankful for the amazing recognition after receiving this year's Best Male HBCU Student of the Year Award. It's been a great ride @morehouse1867. Looking back at the past year..it was all worth it. Best crew(GDs), Best VP(bestfriend), Best Team(family), Best House (716 Lowery Boys), Best kept secret (you can't see it, but you can feel it). Thanks for taking the chance on me. 🙏🏾" #MorehouseMan #Morehouse #MorehouseCollege #whyhbcu #HBCU #myhbcu #hbcupride #hbculove #hbcumade #hbcugrad #blackisbeautiful #blacklove #blackexcellence #classof2017

For those inquirig. The dress is relaxed! Ladies, leave your Louboutins at home. Fellas, hang your collared shirt back in the closet and represent your school or your greek affiliate. If you're not an HBCU Grad or affilitated with a greek organization, that's perfectly OK! We want to see your face in the place too! #djjsmoov82 #adifferentworldlive #suitelounge #atldayparty
