    Prairie View is the place to be. There is always something to do like activities, forums, lectures, theater play productions, game nights, athletic games... You name it, we have it! In addition to the academic growth that I have experienced here, I have been introduced to many people and adventurous opportunities. Prairie View is full of spirit and positive energy, even from thousands of alumni that I meet all the time. Panther Pride is contagious and continuous.
