Baton Rouge native Tonyea McCaleb believes that Southern University has prepared her for a great future as a social worker. She has always wanted to attend Southern University and is certain that she made the right choice. “I want to make sure that other high school students know what Southern has to offer and choose Southern as I did.” 

Tonyea also knows the importance of giving. “I really appreciate the donors who support to the Southern University System Foundation. Last semester I was able to purchase costly books and supplies with a financial award from the foundation’s 1880 Educational Assistance Program. God has certainly blessed me with an opportunity to receive an education here at Southern. When I graduate, I plan to support the university and help other students achieve their goals.”
