Flying the aerie

It’s amazing how much can happen in two years. Yeah I was only here two years because I was a transfer student.
Initially NCCU wasn’t my first choice. After being here, I realized that NCCU was actually my best choice. I feel like I was able to hit the ground running once I got accepted to NCCU. Everything I pictured myself doing I was able to make it happen here on campus.
I must say that if I am the star of the show then I have the best supporting cast ever.
The faculty here at NCCU, especially in the Mass Communications department, is the absolute best. I would like to personally thank Dr. Mac, Dr. Paulin, Dr. White, Dr. DePyssler, DL, Mrs. Pierce Cartwright, Dr. Robinson, Mrs. Casey Hicks, and Mr. Chambers for everything they inspired me to do and for believing in me.
The students here on campus are really cool and down to earth. I enjoyed going to class and hearing what you all had to say. I feel like you all kept me in the know as it pertained to pop culture.
You all showed me what swag is like on a HBCU campus. You all also inspired me to work harder because some of you have some very interesting stories.
I would like to personally give a shout out to all the students that get it in at the Campus Echo. I would like to recognize all the students that help out at AudioNet, whether you have a show or you help with the morning news.
I would also like to recognize all the students that helped in the past with putting together the shows for E-Chat. I am not personally saying any names but you all know who you are.
I’m going to miss chicken Wednesdays and fish Fridays in the cafeteria. I’m going to miss the cool lyceum events on campus. I’m going to miss going to the newspaper competition with the Campus Echo.
I’m going to miss Homecoming week. I’m going to miss all the excitement that goes along with campus life.
NCCU you were really good to me. I feel I gained an extensive amount of knowledge and I got some experience along the way. You showed me I can do whatever I put my mind to.
You rewarded me for my hard work. I will miss you and all the opportunities you created for me in my two years of attendance.
My eagle pride will forever be amplified and all the way live. An eagle is no ordinary bird and NCCU has given me the educational “wings” to soar higher than the rest.
Dr. James E. Shepherd had no idea the impact he would make in the US, NC, Durham, and in our lives when he started this university.
I am elated this is where I chose to come for my education and I am certain I gained knowledge to push me to the next level in life. My journey is done. Farewell.
