  1. AAS Classes

    African-American Studies taught us about our literature and history, gave us a sense of understanding and gave us the ability to #staywoke.

  2. Financial Resources

    Undeniably, there were resources available to help people of color specifically, including grants, scholarships, work study and educational funds. When it came to our education, you name it, we finessed it. 

  3. Black Barbers and Hairdressers

    No matter the distance, there was always a part of the hood or a dorm room that provided the hair care you needed. Black barbers and hairdressers that actually knew how to line you up and get you a neat closure were imperative.

    There was always a group of people that you could feel comfortable around who were like-minded and understood where you came from. 

  5. BGLOs

    They’re the ones that handled forums we could relate to, threw parties with music we listened to and had events we always wanted to go to. We couldn’t imagine college without the Divine 9 holding it down. 

  6. Homecoming and Tailgates

    Do we even have to write it out for you? You know what it was. Everything was lit!

  7. Home-cooked Meals

    When you find someone or some place that knows how to make authentic, home-cooked meals. We’re talking oxtails, collard greens, mac 'n’ cheese, fried chicken and cornbread. Nothing beats this feeling!!! #OMG
