by Meagan FaisonAs a student getting ready to go off to college, you typically have two choices: You can either go to a HBCU or a PWI. There’s no wrong choice, but if you’re like me and choose to pass on a historically black college or university for a predominantly white institution...and that’s when things get interesting.
The scripted series Undecided follows 3 friends, Zuri, Cam and Alexis as they navigate through the highs and the lows of a college experience at Southern State University, a PWI in Atlanta. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not always smooth sailing for black students at colleges when you’re with a more diverse group of peers. In the series, the trio tackles everything from classes, relationships, and social lives to finances, parents’ expectations, and the everyday pressures of college life.
Producer and co-creator of the series, Shandrea Evans, brings the character of Zuri to life. She takes on the role of the sensible one in the group - the friend that forces you to study for exams and makes sure that you twerk responsibly at parties. She’s coming into college with it all together (or so she thinks *dun,dun,dun*).
Then there’s Alexis, played by Diamond Mitchell. While she’s not sure what she wants to do with her life just yet, she’s determined to have as much fun as possible while figuring it out. And last but not least Cam, aka Micah J. Oliver, is the much-needed testosterone to balance the group...even if he isn’t all that balanced himself. Like most people, his silly, carefree attitude covers up some deeper issues for this uncertain Pre-Med student.
