The students at Middle Tennessee State University are speaking up and having their voices heard about the upcoming presidential election.

Watch The Yard sent cameras to the university to interview members of the Black fraternities and sororities on campus about why they think participating in the democratic process of voting is so important. The students, who are members of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc., Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc., and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. opened up about why they think voting is important and why they think students at their school and people in the community surrounding the school should vote.

Julian Sieferth, a member of the Eta Gamma Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi and a senior at MTSU majoring in Multimedia Journalism produced this piece. For more of his work, check him out on Instagram and Twitter.

Watch Whitley Gilbert Passionately Explain Why She Chose To Attend An HBCU Over A Top PWI

Why do some students pick HBCUs over predominantly white institutions? Well in the third season and 12th episode of A Different World, the show waded into the seemingly never-ending “debate” of HBCU vs PWI in which Whitley breaks it down for those who just don’t get it.

Here is TheAntiIntellect‘s description of the episode:

“In the episode, Dwayne’s childhood friend comes to visit him at Hillman and tries to convince him to transfer to the PWI he attended. He makes all of the baseless claims people always make about HBCUs not being a reflection of the “real world,” HBCUs not being as rigorous, and HBCUs not having the right connections. When Dwayne asks Whitley if Hillman was her first choice she, like many HBCU students and alums, answers with an emphatic “Yes!” She was part of a legacy at Hillman that would simply not have been the case had she attend the other school she was accepted to, Georgetown. The episode ends with Dwayne schooling his friend on the many accomplishments of Hillman. This is something that many HBCU students, alums, and supporters can identify as the assumption is always that our HBCUs are not enough and that we are somehow missing out on something by attending them. As this episode shows, the HBCU track record speaks for itself.”
