Tougaloo College is a very heart-felt school. I feel as if I am home there. Everyone is friendly and you can always expect a cheerful greeting whenever you come across others while on campus! The campus site is historical and very beautiful. It is very relaxing to go outside and study in its peaceful setting. My advice to any incoming students would be to be open-minded and open-hearted. Socialize while you're here! It would be very hard not to anyway! Everyone is too nice and friendly!
