Morgan State University

I went to Morgan State University today to pay my application fee and speak with an admissions advisor. I was really excited because, despite all of these acceptance letters that I'm getting, Morgan is really want to go. So anyway, I was talking to Mrs. Donovan and she was telling me about how their school was one of the premier schools in Maryland because their computer labs were super updated, their dorms were spacious, their student-teacher ratio was 17:1, and their cafe was ran by a chef that graduated from Le Cordon Bleu...blah blah blah...

Ok so why did I see my friend Amanda in the admissions lobby withdrawing herself from Morgan? First of all, I haven't seen her since last year's graduation, and I didn't even know she was going to Morgan...so this was a pleasant surprise. When I asked her what she was doing, and she told me that she was withdrawing herself, I was even more surprised at her reason...and this surprise wasn't pleasant.

She said that the American Red Cross came to Morgan last week and did a blood drive, and she was on the committee. She said that one of the representatives from the Red Cross said that they never wanted to come back to Morgan because out of all of the people that signed up to give blood, 36% of them tested positive for HIV....and more than half of the people that signed up were male....As Maya from Girlfriends would say..."OH HELL NO!!!!!"

Ok so that's really triflin', but what's more triflin' than that is the fact that I still want to go there LMAO!!!! And anyways, I don't have nothin' to worry about. I'm not gonna be bonin' anybody on campus....I love Leroy too much for that lol...."shameless plug"!

But so anyway, I'ma go now cuz that sorry ass Sanjaya is bout to sing...LATA GIR!!!

Glad you're narrowing down your college choices. Realistically - and no dig or disrespect to Leroy -but you will do a lot of growing in college - sometimes outgrowing people that are now in your very young life - so your choice for higher learning should be one that centers around getting ahead in life. As someone who has seen corporate recruiting at its finest, they will be looking to schools and students from solid schools. As for the HIV situation at Morgan...what can be said? It's disappointing...college is a time of sexual exploration and you'll need to consider that you may be placing yourself in greater danger - then again, I trust you'll always have the safest sex possible, so we can continue sharing your stories for years to come. I ain't even takin' the bait on the Sanjaya issue...all I'm sayin' is some folks might interpret it as a 17-year old realizing how beautiful another 17-year old is and feeling serious insecurity... LOL

I'm going to morgan State during spring break. I have no intentions on attending, I just am going to look cute and stay up in a hotel for free.

I'm sure it was probably 36% out of the applicants and not the entire school. Still, that is high. in 2007 safe sex is the ONLY sex. Most of the HBCu's on facebook have these really nasty groups that explain some of those rates though. one of my classmates who is attending an HBCU just joined a group that talks about how the men in one specific dorm group give the best dick.
