We are Fisk.

In the 8th grade after attending a “Black College Tour” I knew that Fisk was where I wanted to begin my journey. Being on such a small campus gave me the opportunity to form relationships with my professors and other faculty that have been essential to my academic and professional growth. I selected Fisk not only because of the history of the University but because of the intimacy and the familial aspect that I witnessed the first time I stepped foot on the campus. I understood that a liberal arts education from Fisk would foster my dedication to improving my scholarship and leadership skills.
