As I was taught by our Dean of College Counseling when I was a school administrator, “college is a match to be made, and not a prize to be won”. It’s very difficult for us to see – especially for those of you who are parents – college as a “fit” rather than an “award”, but it’s important that we look at things that way.
That said, I do think that it’s important for us as HBCU alumni/ae to inundate our children with a confirmed belief in the quality of an HBCU education. Even if they ‘break our hearts’. and decide to go to an HBCU other than our own – or a PWI – they should go there with the knowledge that HBCUs provide exemplary education. It solidifies the importance and the legacy of historically Black higher education.
