Department ofAfrican American Studies

We are happy to report that Mikayla Howard (PSU Alum with BA in AFAM, 2021) has been accepted into 9 law schools for 2022 admission, including Northeastern where she has been offered a full scholarship!

AFAM helps to send an intern for the Civil Rights and Restorative Justice center at Northeastern University each summer.  Last summer Mikayla Howard worked as an intern there and then stayed on to work with them as a paralegal this year.

Mikayla has given us permission to share this amazing news, with the caveat that she has not yet made a decision on which law school admission offer she will accept.

Thanks to this amazing department, and especially to any faculty with whom Mikayla took courses and/or from whom she received mentoring and support during her time here!
