What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard University ultimately fails itself by not investing in the students, the infrastructure of the school, the surrounding community and the continual allowance of adminsitrative staff to embezzle funds. The students and teaching staff at Howard are everything to the school

What is your overall opinion of this school?

We desperately need better financial aid and though it is a great school the disorganization is massive. There are plenty of activities to participate in. The students are very nice and intelligent for the most part. The professors vary on who you have but some additional learning outside of the class may be necessary. The social scene is great but when it comes down to actually getting work done it is extremely hard to get in contact with who you need.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my opinion Howard University is an amazing college to attend. It is full of amazing opportunities no matter what your major is, and the network you achieve while there is like no other. Being an international business major myself, I have been able to improve on my networking schools as well as improving my communicating skills when it comes to communicating on a professional level. Howard University is definitely a school I would recommend for anybody to attend as it will be a life-changing experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have a love-hate relationship with Howard. I love the people and culture at Howard--there are tons of artistically inclined, innovative, and intelligent students who create the social college experience. However, the university itself is terribly run. Administration seems to take little interest in the well being of students, buildings are old and poorly maintained, and financial aid is a complete disgrace. When I become an alumni there's no way I would give back directly to Howard.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Howard University is a great school for anyone that wants to be surrounded by rich culture. Students aren't afraid to start political conversations in and out the classroom. There are so many organizations on campus that there's something for everyone to join. They range from student government, campus mentoring, state clubs, etc. This campus also takes Greek Life very serious and it's shown on a daily basis. There are improvements that can be done to the different class buildings but other than that, Howard University is a great campus to be on.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard University holds a sacred experience of black excellence amongst a community and culture that has lasted for generations, and will surely continue to last. Being a current student at the Mecca there is so much I could testify for on the positive end, but as every academic environment can contest, it is what you make of it. Some students that recently graduated were counting down the days to receive their degree, while others were a bit more sentimental and involved, feeling as if they were parting from the family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Howard University is that it is a very positive environment, it facilitates many meaningful conversations, and there is always something going on outside of the classrooms. While there are some issues that could be helped, if you take advantage of your time here, you can definitely be successful in your career path.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Howard University is that being a HBCU the student bring the culture to the campus. There are many artistic minds around campus that help it thrive and catch the attention of others. There are also those who are very bright individuals and flourish in their academics which helps improves Howard's academics and set a good reputation for them. Although not every dorm is up to date the older it is the more the students living in it can build a sisterhood or brotherhood. Being an open campus the staff takes necessary precaution to inform the students on what to do during certain situations and provides a list of contacts that can help in extreme situations.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Entering my first year at Howard, I have had fun, educational, and challenging experiences. Howard University is not just one of the most popular historically black colleges, but it is also a culture. Its motto “Truth and Service” is a key part of the identity that the culture holds. As a student, I learned how to handle several administrative and financial issues on my own without the help of my family. I also learned how to balance my social life with my academics and understood that I have to handle my business before my pleasures. Attending an HBCU also meant networking with other black students who want to help you achieve your goals. Aside from academics and personal challenges, I enjoy what Howard has to offer. Our annual homecomings, our football games, our Soul Food Thursdays, and our First Fridays are some of the key components that also make Howard enjoyable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard offers many opportunities. There are so many events held for networking or meeting popular influencers/celebrities. There are a large number of organizations to join and events to attend. Howard does a good job of providing job fairs and resume training. The campus is always very lively. Especially in the spring with events like SpringFest, Resfest, probates, tours, etc.
