Commuter students play an active role in the life of Bowie State University, and alumni are no exception. Commuter columnist Ashlea Perkins interviewed former commuter Chauna Geter, who graduated with a degree in computer science in 2004, about her time at BSU.
The Spectrum: How would you rate your experience here at Bowie State University?
Chauna Geter: It was a great one. I feel that I had the full college experience here at Bowie. I commuted in the beginning then decided to stay my last year on campus and because of that and I formed wonderful lasting friendships and bonds.
The Spectrum: Since graduating, have you worked in you field of study?
Chauna Geter: Indeed, I worked in the private sector as a commuter help desk analyst.
The Spectrum: Does the campus look different to you?
Chauna Geter: Yes, when I was here Bowie Place was being built, and there were no pubs or cafés; it looks totally different.
The Spectrum: Would you advise any high school graduates to BSU?
Chauna Geter: Most definitely, I'm proud to have graduated from such a well known and highly regarded university. Your experience here at Bowie is what you make it, and I'm happy to say I'm an alumna of BSU.
The Spectrum: What advice do you have for graduating seniors?
Chauna Geter: It's OK to try different things once you graduate just to find your niche. I always say while in college you begin to learn yourself, and when you graduate you begin to deal with the person you've become.
