It is what you make it. If you do not get out there and get out of your comfort zone, you will not like it here. It is a learning experience. The school needs better staff in departments such as financial aid. The administration should really lend an ear to the students and not just shun them.
If you're looking for a school that's inclusive, fun, and has great educators, Hampton University is the place to be. Coming here, I've experienced nothing but feeling welcomed and pure fun. All the students I've met so far are very helpful, encouraging, and hilarious. If any school had to be one of the easiest places to make friends, this would be top 5. My professors are very helpful and communicate their lessons in ways all students can understand. They're always making themselves available to students and provide many opportunities for grade improvement.
It’s a great school, but it could be better if they only listen to the students, TRULY listened to the students and create more financial opportunities. I love my school, but it does have its major flaws which is something hard to look past especially it being an elite HBCU. You hold the students to a certain standard..... do the same for your faculty and staff.
Hampton is a decent school, but there’s a lot of things about it that just don’t sit right with me, the biggest being the president of the university and how he has no real regard for the students. The faculty and staff don’t always look out for their students which is sad considering HU is a $40,000 a year school
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Hampton University is 64%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
When people say college is where you find out who you want to become and where you want to be, well that is very much true. Being at Hampton helped me establish who I am now. I knew who I was and what i wanted out of life but I had some confusions about certain things and being at Hampton just helped me clarify that. I can now stand proudly and speak elegantly when asked a question of what I would like to be or what my future plans are. Hampton has helped me set a road map for my life and future plans, where I want to be, who I am going to be and where I end up after graduation. Any school is valuable to attend because it is a chance to further your educational goals and seek a better life for yourself, family and future generations. It has been valuable to me because I now know who and what I am without any hestitation.
When considering my school, the worst thing about Hampton University would have to be the college expense. Although there are not any out of state fees the tuition along with comp. fees, housing, and food add up to almost $30,000 a year which is hard for most students who are not on scholarships (football players) to afford.
My school is historical but modern. It has strong beliefs in excellence for education.
It's not a school for artisitc students similar to myself. If you sports like rugby or feild hockey like me, we don't have them here. Nor if the majority of your fiends from high school were caucasian
Anybody that wants the HBCU experience should attend Hampton University.
The best thing about Hampton University is the small size of the campus. There are only about 5,000 undergraduate students and approximately another 1,000 graduate students. The campus is small enough that one can cross it by walking in approximately 20 minutes. The class sizes are the same as high school, and it does not feel like the campus is overcrowded by people.
They are music-loving, fashion-oriented, partiers that understand the need for a good education and are able to get up from a night of socializing to attend an early morning class.
My school is best know for having a high number of graduates that go on to get offers from many jobs, have a many intership offers, and very succesful Journalism School.
One unique feature that Hampton University has to offer, is the overall development of confidence and originality in its students. It is a culturally diverse school with plenty of oppurtunities. Here people are very accepting of different cultures and ideas. Many people find who they truly are because here, they feel accepted and able to express and explore their true selves. Every other school may offer the same classes, but not the same type of feeling when students attend Hampton University.
We are the real HU. Not Howard University or Harvard but Hampton University. Also we have great programs such as the Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications adn the new proton research therapy institute is only 3 of its kind in the world.
The most frustrating thing about my school is at times there is not enough activites to be involved with during the weekend. There may be events that are happening but becaue I a ma freshman , I can't get to them due to them being off campus.
I wish i would have known to look out for the locals.
hospitable and very friendly
good but could be better
