I wish I would have attended a different university. Unfortunately, this administration DOES NOT care for their students. They make us wait 2-3 months just to receive OUR refund money which students use mainly to pay for their bills and make sure that they’re able to make it school. NO OTHER UNIVERSITY IN MISSOURI DOES THIS BUT HARRIS STOWE. They have an emergency assistance program but they wait 1-2 months just to let you know whether they’re going to assist you or not. The administration acts as if they’re just there for a paycheck rather than assisting students. If you’re not a known student administrators are reluctant to help you. Activity fees are included in the tuition BUT THEY STILL CHARGE STUDENTS FOR THE ACTIVITIES ON CAMPUS. If you wanted to save $300-400 on books by using Cheggs or another company you can’t because they automatically charge you the cost of books in your tuition which should be a decision that students make. I could go on and on about this school but I wouldn’t be surprised if someone in this administration is stealing funds.
I honestly love my school because although it’s an HBCU, it’s still very diverse and you learn things about people from different walks of life. You learn peoples likes and dislikes, personalities, dreams and you share that bond with one another. It gets no better than Harris-Stowe.
I was very excited to attend Harris-Stowe but I feel like it let me down on numerous occasions and that is very disappointing. The school is very disorganized, not very clean, and it is a negative atmosphere. The students are wild and reckless, and can basically get away with what ever they want to do. One thing I will say is that the professors are very kind and helpful. This school is not for me.
Overall I believe that Harris-Stowe is a great university to be apart of. All of my academic classes are overall easy to understand but at the same time still show some challenges. Also, the campus has a very homely or family-oriented feel mainly because every event or activity that is hosted such as: "Meet the Greeks", to the NAACP fashion show, or the hilarious BFF game show, we all always go to these events together as a HBCU and have a blast which makes it an inevitably great memory and experience to have been apart of.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Harris-Stowe State University is 100%. 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 _____.
I would tell the parents that they should let their child chose a school. All parents have a place in mind, where they believe their child could benefit from the most or would be more suitable, whether it be the place, amount of people, or type of people, but it has to be the childs choice. For the student, I know we like the party schools or the one where all our friends are going, but you should pick a place where you can see yourself staying all 4 years. Some where, where you can see yourself enjoying campus life and the surrounding area of the school. You will make friends and enjoy yourself if you put yourself out there. Spread your wings and fly and you will learn to be strong, independent and determined to accomplish all your goals. You will find that the responsibilties that you have as an adult are hard, but worth going through because it makes you a better person and a stronger graduate.
Harris-Stowe State University is best known as a "teacher's school". Harris-Stowe started off being a college for people who planned on being teachers, and even now, a lot of our students are planning on being teachers.
The worst thing about my school is the dorms' rules! We cannot have vistors other than our parents, grandparents, and/or legal guardians. If we do have visitors we have to stay down in the lobby area. Our windows in our room do not open...which does not make any sense. Also the dorms are really boring most of the times. There is nothing to do on campus forreal.
Harris Stowe State University is accessable, afordable, and diverse university.
I wish that there where more school activity for us to get involve with and that they had more of a variety of scholarship available for us.
People attending this school should be prepared to learn.
My classmates are really invovled in their study's, we all try to help each other prep for the LSAT.
My campus is small and thats a good thing. This way we have small classes and are able to have more open discussing. The teachers are always avaible when you need them.
The kind of person who is only coming because their friends or here or looking to be on a sports team other than, soccer, basketball or baseball. You shouldn't attend if you are not use to an urban background and city life. My school is very open and not scared to show you the good and the bad. Don't come if you want visitors in your dorm or prison like rules in the dorm. Freedom is not a word we use to describe the dorm. Small classes, quite classes are not here!
Well the most frustrating thing that I had a problem with were the tuition. I had a hard time getting in school. I had to pay a large amount of money up front before I could get cleared to move in my dorm and start classes. It was a struggle for my mom to come up with the money. My mom is a widow. My dad passed away severals years ago. My mom is so determined to get me through college. It is her goal to see me gratuate from college. I want to make her proud of me.
Nothing is unique it is more of fa commuter school. No campus life at all.
