Spotlight on Chapter Members who attended an HBCU


Name: Former Chapter President Soror Joy Dorsey-Whiting

College or University: Hampton University


What were your best memories at the HBCU:

Everything! I absolutely loved my Hampton experience, some of the best times of my life! Meeting new friends from all over the country, becoming a member of AKA (of course) and Homecomings!!!!!


Why you would recommend others attend a HBCU:

I would recommend an HBCU because of the wonderful cultural, educational, and social experiences that can be had! It's an experience of a LIFETIME!!!! I will cherish it ALWAYS!


Name: Former Chapter President Soror Chrystal Cleaves

College or University: Voorhees College


What were your best memories at the HBCU:

Meeting my lifelong friends, being exposed to the South, nothing like a HBCU party, the greatest homecomings, and becoming an Alpha Kappa Alpha woman - Fall '83, "14 Shades of Perfection" #1.


Why you would recommend others attend a HBCU:

We were one big happy family, we respected each other. By attending a small college we had no other choice but to get along and make the experience one that we would be proud of and remember for a lifetime. After attending a predominately white high school, it was a breath of fresh air to study and compete amongst my own. I would not trade the experience for anything in the world.


Name: Soror Stacey Coleman

College or University: Morgan State University


What were your best memories at the HBCU:

The "SIT-IN" on campus and the president's office, Spring 1990, to demand dormitory improvements. Scheduling classes around noon, to hang out on the bridge. McKeldin parties...Making life-long friends.


Why you would recommend others attend a HBCU:

I would recommend Morgan because it has so much to offer in regards to the undergraduate, graduate and PHD Programs. They offer many fields of study as well as having the number one school of engineering. Staff and faculty are fair and caring. The buildings, facilities and dormitories are new or upgraded. Morgan is its own little town.
