...Cameron Bell graduated last spring from Westlake High School in Atlanta and was accepted to UGA. But she decided to attend Tuskegee University in Alabama, an HBCU that gave her a full ride, allowing her to graduate without debt. She was also impressed by its program in computer science, her intended major, with a minor in business administration.

“My parents both went there, and they’re successful,” she said.

Bell, along with many of her classmates, rejects the idea that her individual choices are to blame for the lack of diversity at the state flagship.

Sitting in a Westlake classroom in March with several other high-achieving seniors, none of whom are going to UGA, she said, “If you’re going to sit back and say, ‘They’re doing the choosing, how is it our fault?’ that means that you’re not making yourself relevant.”
