Overview

The Only Black Student is a book that evolved progressively from casual group and one on one discussions into written form during the latter years of Lull's undergraduate experience. On campus, Lull worked as a student ambassador for the Office of Minority Affairs. Additionally, he provided guidance to college-bound high school students who feared that they would not succeed socially and academically at a Predominantly White Institution. Many had only interacted with people of similar economic and ethnic backgrounds before entering a PWI. Compiling input from his mentors, mentees, and peers over the course of three years, he completed and published his first edition of The Only Black Student. Lull never considered himself a writer, but was driven by the desire to inscribe the wisdom to others that he wished someone had shared with him when his academic journey began.

Meet the Author

Life has taken Lull down an unanticipated yet rewarding path. As an undergraduate, he completed prerequisites for dental school and majored in economics, primarily because he felt that both of these areas of study were safe and practical. His senior year however, Lull made the decision to put dental school aside in pursuit of a more fulfilling profession. Throughout his life he had been interested in business, community service, and entrepreneurship, so he decided to develop his leadership skills. After graduating from college, he started applying for jobs at consulting firms and local technical companies to put his economics degree to use. He took on various odd jobs, including working for a cleaning service and tutoring high school and early college students before Boeing offered him a great position as a Functional Analyst. Lull is in the process of receiving his Master of Science Degree in Information Management and saved enough money over the past few years to purchase his first home. Looking back, people didn't expect students from his high school to graduate, let alone pursue advanced degrees.
