A North Carolina teen had a huge decision to make after being accepted by 113 universities across the nation.
Jasmine Harrison, 17, ended up choosing Bennett College in Greensboro, North Carolina, where she will attend next fall on a full ride scholarship, according to WFMY in Greensboro, N.C., where she will major in biology and hopes to become a NICU nurse.
“When I got the first couple in the mail, I was like, ‘OK, this is really happening.’ I didn’t really think I’d be able to do that,” Harrison told WFMY.
Harrison was awarded full rides to three schools – all Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) – Ed Waters College in Jacksonville, FL, Mississippi Valley State University in Itta Bena, MS, and Bennett College in Greensboro, NC. Harrison was able to apply to 53 HBCUs all told with just one Common Black College Application and managed to get into 26 that way.
