    Took me 5.5 years.

    Got in 2007 and graduated 2013. My first two years were pretty tame. I was pretty much going back to Winston every weekend. I was going through some things. The last 3.5 were the best years of my life.

    I’ll never forget the engineering conference we went on. It was in Knoxville, TN, as U of Tenn was hosting. We’d go to the little programs in the morning, but after those were done, all the colleges would hang out and party. It was about 10 colleges out there, with us being the only HBCU, and we always rocked with West Virginia University. They just always wanted to hang out with us at these conferences. I remember we all in the hotel room, pregaming taking shots before heading out, and this drunk white girl from WVU saying “we like hanging with y’all, I gotta 2.3 gpa and don’t like being around them other snobs.” We ain’t know how to take that, but we laughed.

    Anyways, that was the first time I ever tried some real moonshine, and it was pretty good mixed with some Sunny D. Well we tore tf up, and we missing our president. I go back inside to the hotel lobby to piss, and see our president on the floor by the bathroom passed out. I go back outside to tell the group so and so is passed out. So, me and a homie goes to get him up and get him back to his room. Lobby receptionist asks if ole dude is ok, and I tell her yea, he’s just not feeling well and we’re getting him to the room. Lol I was drunk as hell too, but was able to keep my composure. Anyways, after that wild night, we all made it to the conference that morning hungover.

    I'm here to read them :salute::feedme:

    They had a black student summer transition program, at my school, where they let all the incoming freshmen take 2 summer classes together, took us on different trips, events and outings for us to have a bonding experience before the rest of the students officially started in the fall. (I used to fall asleep in this one class (hated math), I got high key embarrassed bc a couple of the dudes noticed my routine and brought in a pillow and gave it to me in front of everyone, I ended up dating one of those dudes after that lol). It ended up just being a situation where it was in-state black students v out of state, creating more division and cliques (then it got subdivided into cities).
    :mjlol::beli:
    But when the regular semester started in the Fall, and the other students (white) started filtering in - all that shyt got put to the side when we got the reality check of how outnumbered we were and how we needed each other for support. We created our own black network and kept to ourselves, so in a way it was like a small microcosm of an HBCU. Always had black roomates/housemates. Most of the 'scandals' and stories were about relationships - my roommate was dating 2 dudes from the same fraternity(broke up with one and dated the other one back to back), another student died in his sleep, there was a rain storm- everybody's car got flooded or damaged- between insurance and refund checks, you see people driving and stunting in their new cars, all at the same time, a few students were drafted to the NFL, NBA that made names for themselves; another student went on to marry a very famous celebrity, rappers would come and ask us to be in their videos from time to time; the biggest story was a dude who caught a charge in NJ that made national news.

    Oh shyt at that synopses:gladbron:

    You may not be an Aggie but you may have to share some of them stories in detail. Names can be protected but you sound like got some dope shyt:pachaha:


    One thing that after me makes me :dwillhuh: and :ohhh: occasionally when I go back to the Yard is the rise of the white population I see.

    Like seeing simple shyt I’ve only ever saw at white schools like UNC, UNCG, Wake, or UNCCH.....

    Like on sunny days white people under a tree reading a book or one time I saw a white girl on roller blades at that (still for me) new parking area behind Holland Dorm.

    Cuz there was legit like no white when I was there.

    Hell we ain’t really have a lot of mixed cats that I remember. There was one Asian broad named Lisa that was a Delta I had a crush on.

    The white dude that was cool with my click only lasted one year.... Fr and we never saw him again and his roommate lasted but he only hung with them Cuban Linx niccas.

    Now I go back and it’s like like A LOT of white folks go there but it’s definitely way more than what we had.

    Maybe I’m forgetting but I don’t remember a white face in ANY class I had and I especially my Major classes in Graphic Communication

    You may have told me this before but if you did I can't remember, what made you make this decision to switch? Do you think chemical engineering is more likely to go through automation?

    Oh and you and @Bryan Danielson did either of you get class rings? Or do you think that is mainly a HS thing? Me personally I would wanna get a class ring even more at an HBCU.

    Oh and you sure that crazy chick had nothing to do with your first roommates death? I do wonder what she is doing nowadays.

    Being honest with you, I switched because I realized I had no interest in chemistry. I was also terrible at it. I took 2 or 3 chem courses in high school, and they were cake, but high school and college are 2 different things.

    After I decided to change my major, I was honestly going to switch to a business major, but one of the engineer advisors stopped me before I could and told me to leave chem e, but don’t leave engineering all together.

    And nah, I didn’t get a class ring. I wasn’t going to buy it, as I was barely clearing $100 on a Best Buy check, and I didn’t even think to ask my folks. They were already semi supporting me financially, and my baby bro was about to go to college. I don’t like rings or jewelry on my hands, anyway.

    Na.... I didn’t get a class ring for that or HS but I wish I did.

    And no:russ:


    That crazy chick had nothing to do with it.

    She was from Charlotte and Melvin was like from that Rocky Mount, NC area way across the state from each other.

    Also Melvin had that heart issue. Like coincidentally, on our hall 3 or 4 rooms down, Melvin’s cousin stayed here too.

    And per what his cousin Milk and my RA told me, Melvin died on the court playing a pick up game of basketball. Kinda like that NBA play let some decades back.

    It’s crazy cuz a dude from Parkland on JV when I was on Varsity died too. It was a bruh I was getting cool with as he was an up and coming player and he actually wore my jersey number from when I played JV

    I remember when he died, it was known we worked out together and my local WXII NBC station interviewed me back then.

    But back to Mel.... it was his heart.... which is scary

    Aight next story Homecoming 99 and back then if y’all old heads like me and @Optimus Prime y’all remember that A&T was so big time and so dope we had TWO CONCERTS.

    One at the coliseum and one on campus in Corbett.

    That week was full of fukkery I don’t know where to began so I’m gonna have to skip around.

    I remember our comedy show hosted by a returning Ricky Smiley:picard::whoa::mjlol:

    Which I’m gonna explain those smileys as it goes back to GHOE 98 when RS came for the comedy show, so bookmark this.

    But 99 I think the line up hosted by RS was Joe Claire, Sommore, abs Mike Epps.

    [​IMG]

    And not sure how it used to be but back then they have a small stage on the floor and then floor seating on they main floor, then the bleachers filled up. We used to try to arrive early to get them front row floor (seriously.... sitting on the floor no chairs) spot but the time the Linx got it and we ain’t wanna sit behind them so we play the side.

    But I remember them being obnoxious and minor heckling..... but Mike Epps wasn’t trynna hear that..... he ROASTED THE fukk out of them!!! That shyt was embarrassing.

    Then homecoming night the main strip (when it was open) was wild and I remember niccas wilding out to the point peeping the energy it wasn’t exactly safe.

    Cuz this was Pastor Troy era, traffic was crazy as at the spot between Scott B & the gravel parking lot going toward the bookstore near that crosswalk there was a tree that niccas was posted at.

    And whev cars drove by and got stopped at that spot they’d run out and start rocking cars side to side, on nicca was doing the Dukes of Hazard slide across the hood move or sometimes the would jump on the hood.

    It got crazy so folks that peeped it sped by almost hitting people.... and they ain’t really too much fukked with cars slowly rolling by, but if you stopped you was fukked.

    So then, this burgundy Lex with these 2 bad chicks comes through and “uh oh” the traffic stops.

    Man them niccas turned to wolves. Some fukking with her car as she screamed stop. But one dude was legit trynna pull up on her. Either way, she wasn’t having it and attitude took off and on some “aint no nicca gonna” shyt that she did and I can imagine anyone reading this gonna feel like.

    As the saying goes, “she thought it was gonna be one way”

    She popping off of dude, next thing you know a nicca snatches her keys out the ignition and runs off and tosses them shyt!!!:krs:

    And then he’s gone!

    Now her and her friend stuck in the middle causing now a real traffic jam and niccas is really wilding.

    She can’t roll her window up she can’t go not wear or put her car in neutral, and she really can’t just leave it he car or her friend.

    I just remember her sitting their mad as fukk then crying and niccas laughing and the shyt wasn’t funny but at the same time she did come at a dude mad sideways and stuck up. And I get it but it’s like you gotta read the situation.

    They was stuck there for HOURS

    Cuz even campus security was like :manny: we don’t know what to do.

    And her friend and some other good people trynna help search in the grass for her keys but it’s dark out there with them dim ass streetlights

    I’m interested in reading those stories. Create an HBCU thread in the TLR. I don’t know if there’s enough Aggies on here to make it solely about A&T.

    Yeah.. you got stories to tell. I'm bored at work- drop those shytz...

    in addition to the topics from yesterday- I have one about my friend at the time who tried to suicide herself and now she's a psychologist; a haunted building on campus, a scandal of my own involving my college boyfriend and current bf playing college bball for a well known coach and a situation at Madison Square Garden.

    i'm going to tell the story later but the hint about the NJ situation is - Jayson Williams (that's not the dude who went to the school but he was affiliated with the situation and was there).
