Beautiful, Beautiful, ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!! Well DONE!!!
I don't know if any of you saw the documentary "The Swamp" presented on MSNBC on four Sunday nights. One of the four was filmed on A&T's campus. The news crew was doing a story on the gerrymandering of A&T students by splitting the campus in half to dilute their vote, thereby giving the republicans an overwhelming advantage in elections. The news team filmed a significant portion of campus on the ground ( it looked great), but also did some aerial shots from a helicopter. They did an awesome job of presenting A&T through their walking tour and speaking with great students.
Kudos to you for presenting those great dusk and night photos. You did yourself proud.

i think we have the most "under rated" hbcu campus in america. i always hear folk talkin' bout how nice hampton's campus is. but why? i don't know. maybe just because they've got a little ole lake on campus i suppose, but ain't nothing that special about hampton's campus.
i think our campus gets a raw deal because a lot of non-aggies only got a chance to see our campus while major "construction" was going on. a lot of non-aggies saw when scott hall got "demolished" so that aggie village could be built and then the old student union got "demolished" so that the new student center could be built.
so the north side of campus darn near looked like a "war zone" during the intial phases of new construction and i think for non-aggies it gave them the wrong impression of our campus.
but i've traveled to a lot of hbcu's over the years and i don't recall any being any more beautiful than our campus with the only exception being xavier university in new orleans and that's only because most of their buildings are all built with the same kind of brick which looks pretty cool.
now i won't say that i've been to "every" hbcu campus in america, but i've been to an awful lot of them and a&t more than holds its own relative to other hbcu campuses...
she's the "symbol" of lady aggie basketball excellence. its amber calvin's "show time" in aggieland!! the queen of "no look" passes...
