    Make sure you know how to manage your time well, because when school first start you will have so much spare time you will not know what to do. Then as the year progress everything will seem to go by so fast. Enjoy reading, because teachers do not teach you, you teach yourself and ask the teacher questions in class. Teachers never fail students at Fisk, if you want an A in a particular course you have to work hard and earn your A.

    Fisk University offers a lot of Merit scholarships based on both your academic prowess and your financial need so they automatically considers applicants for merit scholarship and 92% of the students are on some form of scholarship, aid or grant. I would advice students that wanted to major in depth in the arts to reconsider before applying because the Arts department consist of English, Music and Fine arts majors. This is because Fisk university is known for their science programs.
