I am a very proud bulldog! This institution gave me so many great experiences, both educational and life. I am very appreciative to have had the opportunity to attend this university. I was a member of the Marching 101 Band, and a very active member in the University Bands, and my experience with that was memorable. Upon my graduation in 2016, people were calling me and I was immediately given my first position as an educator. I had many networking experiences while at South Carolina State University which has helped me tremendously for my career. Many of my professors were very close knit with me, and still stay in close contact with me, and vise versa. Despite what the media says about South Carolina State University, it triumphs through it all and has produced great alumni who are accomplishing and achieving outstanding goals.
