[My advice to other students is to] get out and get involved. Enjoy your time here and make connections because those connections along with experience and grades will benefit you in your future endeavors."

Na'eem Outler (2011)
Before coming to Miami I majored in psychology, but once I transferred I changed my major to Black World Studies (BWS). I feel this change served to be one of the best I could have ever made, because BWS taught me many different perspectives I was unaware of.

Francesca Witcher (2010)
BWS gave me access to many great professors of color, which played a huge role in my professional and personal development. I gained a tremendous amount of confidence and encouragement from these professors that I feel that I did not get elsewhere.

Dave Greber (2003)
I majored in English-Journalism at a time when doing so required a minor. A quick jaunt through the course list one spring left me wondering more about BWS. As a budding writer and reporter, I knew I needed to understand experiences beyond my own. It proved to be one of the best decisions I've made.

Sheryl Long (2009)
I am honored to be a part of the network of people within the Black World Studies community who look at the world with an open and honest perspective. 99% of us who sat in those classes did so because of our thirst for knowledge and because our professors created a safe, trusting environment in which to learn. My professors delivered that on a daily basis and I am grateful to have been changed because of it.
