Why school pride matters (regardless of how you feel)
Posted By: Eddie Francis on April 16, 2013 |
When I speak to HBCU students about the importance of school pride, I urge them to never get caught up in the emotions of the moment. I also challenge them to compete against proud students or graduates from some of the country's most well-respected colleges and universities.
Unfortunately, I have dealt with quite a few students who seriously lack pride in their respective HBCUs; and I warn them that could compromise their career paths.
The attached video features an interview with two alumni of Paul Quinn College. They speak energetically and eloquently about their experiences at PQC, but listen to the last comments made by Troy Sims about the value of leveraging school pride for career success.
