Fisk University has truly been a place of refuge. I wholeheartedly love my University and I could not imagine myself anywhere other than Fisk!

We are Fisk.

As a Music major, I have been afforded many opportunities to perform both on stages around campus and so many off-campus. Being away from home can challenging but, I can truly say, the administration and professors were gracious and kind in helping me to navigate these obstacles.
