Student Life with Kylah

Segment #3 from Alabama A&M University


Let’s head over to the quad to meet Kylah, a senior business management major from Memphis, Tennessee. As the captain of the cheer team and an active member in her sorority, Kylah is deeply engaged on campus. With several student organizations and career development services, The Office of Student Affairs prioritizes student development. Tell us what you’ve been up to, Kylah.

– Thanks, Desi. Hey, y’all. I’ve always had my sights set on attending a HBCU. Choosing the right school wasn’t easy at first, but I quickly realized that Alabama A&M was the ideal fit for me. The location, academic programs, scholarship opportunities, and vibrant culture all played a significant role in my decision. As a center of excellence, the university offers many programs and organizations, making it hard not to get involved. For the past four years, I’ve been a part of the cheer team, and this year I’m honored to serve as captain. Cheering on our Bulldogs has been incredibly rewarding. Another highlight of my campus involvement was joining the Delta Delta chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated, which has helped me grow personally and step out of my comfort zone. One of my favorite campus events is our silent headphone parties during homecoming and spring week. We dance to music through wireless headphones and there’s always a huge turnout. Student life at A&M is amazing and living in the residence halls, you’re never too far away from the fun. I stayed in Ernest L. Knight Living and Learning Complex. Not only do we have our own caf, but we have a barbershop and salon, too. AAMU is incredibly hands-on. I’ve had the opportunity to take courses where I work directly with real companies, gaining invaluable life skills and insight into corporate life. Last summer, I even secured an internship opportunity through a career fair hosted by the university’s Career Development Services to work with a major bank in Houston, Texas. This university has taught me more than business management. I’ve learned how to navigate through life and apply my skills in different ways. I feel so prepared and undefeated in all aspects. I wouldn’t trade my experience here for the world. Back to you, Desi.

– Kylah, student life at AAMU sounds incredible. Getting involved on campus fosters lasting friendships and relationships, preparing students for life, both personally and professionally. You’ve truly exemplified what it means to be part of the Bulldog family. Thank you, Kylah.
