Be prepared to branch out and work hard for everything. Classes are cool, not really too difficult, difficult at all really. Time management is key though. Social Life requires alot of personal effort especially when it comes to on campus activities. Be prepared to learn alot about yourself...and build patience..because,the easiest way to put it is, Fisk is not for everyone and you will know if its for you because in a sense, it will choose you. Expect greatness if you come here...because if you are the type of person I am.. you will be motivated to promote change. Miss Michigan

    Fisk University is an amazing small school. It will be your home away from home, because you develop a personal relationship with not only peers but faculty. Fisk also offers joint programs with other institutes to help students get a step closer to their dream.

    Fisk is a very small yet historic HBCU located in Nashville,Tennessee. A big plus of going to the university is the close-knit family oriented style of learning and culture that can be felt by those who don't attend the university. However, despite the family atmosphere of Fisk, our facilities are sub-par and some of our buildings need renovation but for most, the vibe given off on campus causes many people to overlook this (in a good way). The best part about Fisk University is its close proximity to other universities such as Belmont, Vanderbilt, and TSU. This helps create a network where students can engage in activities and conversation and build relationships and establish connections which i I think is an AWESOME opportunity and experience.

    Fisk is essentially what I was hoping to find in my college experience. My mother was an HBCU alum and being at a Black Ivy League Institution is rewarding academically as well as it is socially. I recommend anyone looking for a school to challenge you instead of just feeding you information to check out this illustrious institution of higher learning.
