Sometimes I really regret turning down my acceptance to FAMU. I think going to an all black college would be a better experience for me as a whole. Did you go to an HBCU? Do you feel that going to a predominatly black oriented college is bad/good for young people? I see how some people think that it hurts young adults because we live in a diverse nation and it's good to experience people of different backgrounds.

Sometimes I feel that way as well, however I wouldn't have chosen FAMU...

Before I actually started college I always wanted to go to an HBCU. For the longest I had my mind set on attending FAMU. I grew out of it towards my later years of high school when I actually started applying for colleges though.

I love the idea of an HBCU actually. But I'm glad I didn't go to one. None of the HBCU's are ranked as high as my school so I had to pass.

I would love to go to grad school at one, though.

Heart FAMU & I've got lots of love for all HBCUs

They're not all created equal. But it depends on what you want\need out of your specific program also .... FAMU has great pharmacy, business, nursing, and teaching programs. They're also in the process of possibly getting a dental school. All of my friends who graduated from there are doing well.

I would not have gone anywhere else.

I went to a PWI for undergrad and I didn't enjoy the experience. My dream school was Clark Atlanta and I turned down the opportunity to attend the school for a PWI in NYC. During the five years I was there, I thought about my missed opportunity and how my college experience would have been different (maybe better) if I would've gone to CAU.
Now, I'm attending an HBCU (Howard) for grad. school and I wouldn't go anywhere else. I wish I would've attended Howard as an ungrad. I love the environment. I'm sure I would've enjoyed my college years.

I'll be honest here; I think the best is to go to a college that has some tradition AND diversity.
Staying with your own people, you never get out of your comfort zone therefore, you won't evolve.
It's important to mingle. The reason why rednecks act the way they act is because they are stuck in the deep country somewhere in the South, hanging out with idiots like them, whom think like them and whom will never achieve anything.

I attended a PWI for law school and a State school for undergrad, and I wish I went to an HBCU. I think there is a stronger alum network and more support to help students succeed. Also, when large corporations are looking to hire diverse people, they don't look at PWI's. They go straight to HBCU's. If I could do it over, I'd change things, but I can't change my path. It is what it is.

many of the professors have transferred over from 4 yrs.  hell, George Lucas graduated from a CC and went on to USC.  I get defensive when ppl talk about CC's because of how many people i know who have graduated from one and gone on to really good Universities.  You're doing the same thing in your first 2 yrs, only it's cheaper.  there is only a stigma bc of the drop out rate.  if you have set a goal you will achieve it.

Which is stupid because if these same people who dropped went to four year schools, they'd drop out there too.

Please! Some Blacks go to PWIs because they offer more scholarships, and you are talking about coons and coonbucks, last I checked Clarence Thomas and Hermain Cain were the products of HBCU's. Coons can come from any school. I agree with you. More Blacks should attend HBCU's. I wish I attended one, but the presumption that all Blacks that attend PWIs = Coons is faulty.

I didn't really take it as shade .... I thought sexyandfamous was saying if the school is producing graduates with prosperous careers in your field, that should tell you if it's worth going

As opposed to a school that's graduating business majors who end up selling shoes at Foot Locker.

I question if this is a regional thing. I went to Duke, we had tons of recruiters there from major corporations as Duke's science, engineering & business schools are quite strong. Maybe the recruiters in DC don't want to go all the way to Cali to find a minority applicant. It makes sense to visit the hbcu's in their area to find diverse new hires.

Why would someone lie about where they went to college? It's not like ppl on here are offering jobs where you would need to vie for top ranking. Confused

I don't think people lie as much as we think.

I went to a predominantly white state school for undergrad and the black community there was VERY strong... We pretty much ran the SGA while I was there. It was kind of like having the best of both worlds... We had diverse classroom, social, networking interactions, but we also had many things on campus that were just ours. Because of the size of the black population there, it's kind of like we all stuck together. I remember when I got there as a freshman I immediately felt welcome by all of the blacks, upperclassmen, greeks, geeks, gradstudents, staff...
 
Le sigh... I miss college

You have to do what's best for you and your future. I'm graduated from an HBCU and two PWIs and have had a very successful career. My daughters went to PWIs, enjoyed themselves and are successful. My son went to an HBCU and he's successful too.
 
In my expert opinion, FOLLOW THE MONEY!

Staying with your own people, you never get out of your comfort zone therefore, you won't evolve.
It's important to mingle. The reason why rednecks act the way they act is because they are stuck in the deep country somewhere in the South, hanging out with idiots like them, whom think like them and whom will never achieve anything.


 
Equating black people to rednecks is ridiculous. Black people are a diverse race of people who hail from all over the world. Rednecks are a subgroup of American southern whites from a very specific socioeconomic and religious upbringing.
 
The very idea that this could be used as a reason NOT to go to an HBCU is simply bizarre. I feel bad for black people who don't realize how diverse black people are. But maybe that was something that I learned at an HBCU?

I am currently attending a PWI and I have a close friend that is attending a HBCU and loves it.However I know that attending spelman wasn't for me. She loves the community however she isn't the diverse experiences as i am and idk if its just her, but now she's all pro-black, and does nothing but preach about how the white man is keeping us down.
My group of friends are starting to find her extremely hard to be around.
