TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - A Stillman College student tells FOX6 News a mold problem on campus is forcing her to transfer to another college. "It was really like a traumatic experience for me," Amina Kelly, a Stillman student said. Kelly says she experienced those bad conditions while living in Roulhac Hall. Kelly sent FOX6 pictures showing what appears to be mold in the showers. In one picture, a ceiling tile in the shower was non existent. Another picture shows a card board box covering another missing shower ceiling tile. Other pictures show some trashy conditions in Hay Hall, which is the male dorm. "There's outdated things. And stuff falling down from the ceilings and mold, water stains, pipes bursting," Kelly said. Kelly says the mold problem is so bad its affected her health. She's made several trips to a determologist office. Amina's face says it was clear before attending Stillman then says her face started breaking out big time while at the college. "Spots like all over my neck and chest. My face just nasty bumps and it started coming on my lips and that would really get ashy," Kelly said. "I've tried cleaning the mold several times. I've bought cleaning supplies." Kelly says she's tried getting Stillman College officials to address the problems but she's run into numerous road blocks. "I've sent pictures. I've showed them pictures of my face. And just to be treated with shear disrespect. I was like I can't stay here," Kelly added. "If I'm paying to go here, I've paid every red cent. Therefore I should not live in conditions that I did not live in before I got there." Thursday afternoon, a Stillman College spokesperson told FOX6 she wasn't aware of any issues. She says she would have mainitance look into the issues. Kelly says she's spoken face-to-face and via email with college officials, but so far she says nothing has been done to fix the problems.
