MANHATTAN, NY -

More than a dozen Tennessee State University students who were attending a conference in Manhattan when Hurricane Sandy struck remain stranded.

The students were participating in a leadership conference through the Thurgood Marshall College Fund when the storm hit the east coast.

Nashville's News 2 spoke to senior business major Jasmine Hudson via Skype regarding the terrifying hurricane.

"I was scared. I had never been in a hurricane before," she said, adding, "As far as what I saw, [there were] very, very strong winds and what was particularly interesting, there was snow. It was interesting and pretty much scary at the same time."

Hudson added that all of her fellow students are safe, but everyone is anxious to return home.

The students were supposed to return to Nashville on Tuesday, however it looks like Thursday will be the earliest they will be able to leave New York City.
