Go back to school with the 'Chronicle' interns

Huston-Tillotson University

Yohannis Job (junior, business administration; anticipated graduation: May 2013).

AC: Why Huston-Tillotson?

The campus is beautiful and historical. It is relatively small. The faculty and staff take time to speak with students and are genuinely interested in their success. Most people classify H-T as a historically black institution, but it really is a melting pot of cultures. There are a lot of international students; this provides a rich cultural experience.

Extracurricular Activities

Peer Learning consultant, American Marketing Association, and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, and I'm running again. H-T exposed me to corporate-setting internships early. I interned for Circuit of the Americas and a firm in Hahn, Texas.

Favorite Eateries

Bennu 24-Hour Coffee Lounge and the H-T student union

Survival Tips for Incoming Students

• Come with an open mind and heart; H-T surpassed my expectations.

• Don't be afraid to ask questions.

• Become familiar with your resources. H-T has the Center for Academic Excellence, the Writers' Studio, and library training sessions to help students succeed academically.

• Get involved, and don't be afraid to start your own organization. Let your voice be heard.
