I love my “H” before my “B.”
I love my “B” before my “C.”
I love my “C” before my “U.”
I love my H-B-C-U!
And, without my HBCU, my life wouldn’t be the same.
As a student, Oakwood challenged me intellectually and spiritually; gave me opportunities to travel; and most importantly, gave me friends for life.
As an alum of this great institution, and now as the development officer for the Annual Fund at Oakwood University, I know that our shared “Oakwood experience” would not be possible without the generous support of those who have come before me. I’m hoping you’ll agree that your life wouldn’t be the same if not for Oakwood. 
If you’re like me, and your life wouldn’t be the same without our HBCU, don’t miss this opportunity this Valentine’s Day to show how much you love our HBCU by giving to the Annual Fund online at
Thank you!!!!
