What is your overall opinion of this school?

You can't go to Howard without growing, becoming a leader, a better person, and a competive candidate in your field of study. It's because of Howard that I am the person I am today and I owe much of my current and future success to that that university. Howard University is an upstanding institution and I'm proud to be an alumnus of the Howard University School of Communications (c/o 2015). HU! YOU KNOW!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion on Howard University is that it’s a very excellent school. You can tell that the students there always excel and do great in anything they do. The students are also very helpful and very friendly. The campus is extremely big and there’s so many activities you can do around the school when students don’t have class. The events at Howard are even bigger. Howard always show out when they have homecoming, important speakers, music festivals and more. Howard will make you feel very comfortable and secure. There’s so many options you can major in at that school. If there’s a major that they don’t have, you can choose the alternative to go to another school and make up your own major and still get college credits from Howard. The opportunities you can receive at Howard are endless! You can even study abroad and go on a couple of free vacations at Howard based upon what you major in and how long you’ve been there. I would definitely consider going to Howard without a doubt. Howard is known for having great academics, a great law and medicine program, and more.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I genuinely enjoy attending this university. Although there are countless things to fix, I would not trade my HBCU experience for the world and feel I would not be happier elsewhere. As an incoming freshman, I had a slight idea of what to expect because my aunt is an alumna of my school, however, you do not really understand until you see for yourself. I suggest everyone have the HBCU experience at least once, and Howard is, in my opinion, the best place to do so.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard University is an amazing school solely for the people you will meet and the connections you will make. HU has major flaws that they will not address most of the time unless students force Administration to either through social media or by constantly harassing staff. The math department is terrible and there is no way around this other. HU Administration will frequently try to play students and give you the run-around whether it is concerning Financial Aid or even to try to cover up their own mistakes and confusion. From underfunded programs and prolonged "construction" and "renovations" on dorms, Howard never has a shortage of problems. They recently increased tuition without notifying students resulting in extra charges and forcing many students to transfer. I love my HBCU, and I will never regret attending HU but we are a far way away from perfect.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The historical value placed on Howard University is what makes the school thrive. The professors, the atmosphere of the classroom, it all bleeds with African-American culture. Because of this, their is a warm feeling of unity felt by all, embedded in the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The illustrious Howard University, also known as the Mecca, has influenced my growth and individuality in more ways than one. Being a student at Howard University means that you will face issues with financial aid, and with bursar, and with housing, and maybe even with meal plans. Howard, although, is a community. It is not just a regular community; it is a community filled with intellectual, bright, beautiful, black students from all over the world. The culture, the blackness, being able to look around and see people who look like you and can relate to you. That experience is like no other.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I had an awesome time during my visit of Howard University. I was a great opportunity to see people who looked like me taking their education seriously. i wish the television and the media showcased all the positive and educated minorities instead of the criminal activity. Being located in Washington D.C. it's less than 5 miles from the white house and close to and less then a 10 minute walk to the Smithsonian Garden. Being centrally located to culture and educational history is one of the many reasons I chose Howard University to complete my degree in Mechanical Engineering.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall Howard University is the number 1 HBCU, but it could use some work. Housing wise, there is a freshman girl dorm that is currently being renovated, but girls are still living there in not so good conditions. Food wise, the food is okay, definitely room for improvement. Food outside of campus is kind of scarce and you must Uber or take the metro to a lot of places. Howard is a great school, like others, it needs some work, but you get a lot of opportunities to do many things towards your major or even to fulfill your creative pallet.
