Reading President Paxson’s journey to Tougaloo brought me back to my own experience (“From the President,” July/August). As an aspiring African American student, I found that one of the great challenges was the choice to grow and learn through the Historically Black College & University (HBCU) experience or to attend Brown. This partnership between two historic and extraordinary schools provided me with the unique opportunity to do both! My life has forever been changed. I hope future generations of Tougaloo and Brown students take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
