Am learning a lot
Not only educationally but attending Livingstone College has taught me a lot about college and life in general.
Am enjoying being here
I love being on campus; but there is not that much to do out in the town. the campus is small so the class room sizes are pretty good at < 20 to 1.
Bang for the buck
Tuition is about $22050.00 but books are included and the food isn't that bad either.
Tips for prospective students
College is what you make it and Livingstone is no different. You have to come in with a positive attitude and know that everything you do will help you in the long run.
Great for these types of students
Although it is a HBCU Livingstone is a great school for all types of students.

Livingstone College is a great HBCU for students who were underachievers in high school. Livingstone also is a great college to play boys/girls basketball for. Last, Livingstone College will give you an great college experience.
Tips for prospective students
Don't judge the college by the way certain buildings look; it's an small private college. Also, don't focus on the negative, focus more on the positive. Last, keep a uplifting attitude, study, and ask questions if you don't understand something.
Academic Rigor
Livingstone College has a program, the bridge program where the college offers a number of students who have under an 2.0 GPA coming out of high school an opportunity to make up for the low GPA. Even though the required GPA is 2.0; Livingstone is willing to work with students who have lower than an 2.0. To sum up, Livingstone is a college that doesn't judge a student based on they're low GPA in high school.
Dorm Life
The college has 3 girls dormitories 2 boys dormitories and 1 coed dormitory. The one co-ed dormitory is for students who have an or above an 3.0 GPA. Although every dormitory isn't in excellent condition, they're in manageable living conditions.
Food and Dining
Livingstone just upgraded the cafeteria last spring semester to a new and improved cafe. The cafe offers pizza, deli sandwiches, Chinese food, various deserts, as well as various delicious main course. If that's not good enough, there's a sonic and Italy cafe less than five minutes in walking distance. Also, dominoes delivers to the campus.
What to do for fun
Fraternities and Sonorities throw parties through out the week. There's a club just 10 mins driving distance away that throws parties every week end. Plus, Charlotte is just 35 mins to 45 mins away.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
There aren't really any unusual traditions or campus locations.
Great for these types of students
This is a great school for students who came out of high school with below acceptable grades. This school is also great for students who would like to play sports on the collegiate level but couldn't because they're grades were low in high school. Plus, this school is great for students who want the HBCU experience.
Clubs and Activities
They're multiple clubs and activities on campus.
Greek Life
I'm not exactly familiar with the Greek life yet.
Campus Safety
The school does have multiple security gates on campus. Plus, outsiders aren't allowed to come on campus after a certain time for the safety of students. Last, the campus security does security drive bias and checks after hours around campus.
