Fisk is Family to me. This university is a safe haven for me to truly express my creativity and grow as a student and servant leader in my local community.
At Fisk, you truly are challenged academically. Without my professors pushing me and always making sure that my fellow Fiskites and I understand the topics at hand, I don't know where I would be. At Fisk, you are more than a number you are seen!
Fisk is my Home away from Home. I love being able to have such a close-knit bond with all my professors.
When people say "Fisk chooses you", I did not want to believe them, but it is TRUE!
I chose Fisk to continue the legacy that so many Fisk Alumni have established. I knew that Fisk would be the best place to academically and personally enhance my talents to their true potential. Fisk has taught me more about myself than I could have ever imagined."
Through the Honors Program here at Fisk, I have been exposed to different disciplines, which allows me to understand various viewpoints, enhance my network, and function in a multitude of business environments and industries.
A rich tradition of excellence
Probably no single institution has played so central a role as Fisk in the shaping of black learning and culture in America. The Fisk tradition of leadership and excellence continued throughout the 20th century and is being carried on today.
