5 Reasons I Loved Attending an HBCU: Savannah State Edition

 Graduation season is one of our favorite times of the year and we especially love our HBCU graduation sessions.  Here are some beautiful pictures from a Savannah State graduation session. We were also lucky enough to get to chat with Ta’Shara Jackson about why she loved her HBCU experiences. It brought backs so much nostalgia for me  and my Howard experience. Take some time to congratulate a recent #blacksouthernbelle graduate or remember your college years or even donate to your HBCU!

“By attending a HBCU, it taught me a lot about myself. Not only was I inspired by all that I learned, those life lessons encouraged me to want to share my experience to inspire others.”

“HBCU’s have a lot of history and by attending the oldest HBCU in history, inspired me to create my own.”



“As a young girl my dream was to attend college and graduate, and i accomplished just that.”




“Savannah State University has definitely been an experience and I can honestly say I’m grateful and humbled by the good times and the bad times because I know it helped make me the woman I am today, a lot of lessons learned but no regrets.”
