What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion of my University is that this is a vibrant,creative school filled with black excellence. There are amazing people here, numerous opportunities, and diversity seen throughout people of color. I love my HBCU because the courses and knowledge you gain here is nowhere near what I've learned nor experienced in high school. I am able to learn and grow as I figure out what it means be an Afro-Latina in this world.

I think it is a very sophisticated school and has a lot of opportunities. If you want to be part of a sorority there are alot. It is part of the howard "religion" i guess you can say. Right in the heart of DC. A lot of nearby sights to go see. The campus is very open and beautiful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard University is known as many things. It is the Mecca for one. The most popular of HBCUs. But why? Is it because of our notable alumni? Is it because of its students' determination and stride for a better life and representation of Black people all over the world? Perhaps a combination of the two. Students still apply and attend this "prestigious" university every single year knowing about the problems that its current students face every year. The administration at Howard works extremely slow and mostly shoos away students looking for help to fix whatever issue they may be having. Financial aid at this university is truly a mess and is a constant work in progress. They are good for losing your paperwork, or taking away money, grants or scholarships that were given to you prior because they have somehow found some reason for you to no longer deserve it. The administration does a poor job at distributing and publicizing important deadline dates for its students to take care of business, and students often times end up leaving the university to pursue their education elsewhere because Howard failed to uplift them. I've had my run-ins with admin many times, and many times ending with me leaving in tears. We are paying entirely too much money for the facilities to still be run down, administration to be treating students poorly, and for the food to not be that great and have inconvenient dining hours for students. I love Howard because of the people who care about the students and because of the drive of students. The music program is phenomenal and is filled with such talent and expertise and I am glad to be apart of it besides all of the chaos that I have to deal with everyday. If it weren't for the music department and the amazing souls I have met through it, I may have transferred by now, because money is scarce. I hope that my class will progress Howard's conditions and make it better for the next group of students who are ready to start their college careers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The illustrious Howard University is and will forever be an amazing school, however, no school is perfect. Upon arrival to Howard there were some major issues with on campus housing, as well as financial issues. Within the few months that I have been here and seen things grow, some much change has been implemented and campus life is already improving. Administration is actually taking the time to hear its students and faculty out; trying to integrate our ideas into the university to figure out what is best for everyone, as a whole, and this is happening slowly, but surely. We attend school in the nation's capital, it 's only fitting that we protest and demand for change to happen on our campus, especially since it's our home for the next four years. I am proud to call myself a Bison and can't wait to be a part of the change that future Howard University Bison will experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a place where you can be yourself and still thrive to be better. The social life allows people to increase their confidence and grasp what they feel will be beneficial to their success. We open our doors to the community because without a community you can not create a home. Overall Howard University provides individuals with the support, academia, facilities, and services to be all that you can be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard University is a stellar academic institution with its share of faults. While there are a number of facilities on the campus that could serve in better capacities Howard University provides a safe and effective learning space for students. The university prides itself on producing many of the trail blazing African Americans in our nation's culture including Senator Kamala Harris, Zora Neal Hurston, and Phylicia Rashad. Howard University makes the most of its strategic location in the nation's capital and should be considered by any students seeking an education on a culturally diverse campus.
