Mekkah Husamadeen:  President of the School of Communications

  • Age:
  • Hometown: Cleveland, Ohio
  • Degree being pursued: A in Mass Communications
  • Mekkah is currently the Treasurer of the School of Communications and am a member of the 1867 Undergraduate Assistantship program.
  • Mekkah plans on going to Law school, and following that, working in Entertainment Law.
  • Mekkah’s Thoughts on The Collegiate 100:


“The Collegiate 100 has helped strengthen who I am as a young woman. At all times I am either the only, or one of the few women in the room, but it has only shown me the beauty and power of how great women are. Also, I even feel that I have become, in a way, a ‘big sister’ figure to some of the mentees. The Collegiate 100 has helped my character and confidence.“


Marquis Taylor:  President of the College of Arts & Science

  • Age: 19
  • Hometown: Brooklyn, NY

  • Marquis is Co-Director of the Bison Guru Mentorship Program, Secretary of the Howard University Chapter of Collegiate 100, Community Service Coordinator for YAALI
  • Upon graduation, Marquis plans to enroll in a PhD program where he will study African American History.
  • Marquis’ Thoughts on The Collegiate 100:


“Being a member of Collegiate 100 has reminded me of my responsibility to serve the larger Washington, DC community. I am reminded of this obligation every other Saturday through serving as a mentor for SLA participants.”
