What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I think of Howard University, I think of the Mecca. It really holds true in that regard. There are intelligent black, brown, and white people on campus. More brown people than anything. However, cost can be a big factor if this is somewhere you want to go. Think smart and handle your business in financial aid, the line be crazy. Other than that, overall its an okay joint to consider for your education. We got a little bit of everything. You know!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard University is a complex culture of a mixture of several black diaspora groups from all over the world. The main reason to go to Howard is for the black education, empowerment, and cultural inclusion. However, Howard is also a great place for academics, sports, and the arts. Really anything you could want to do in college is offered by Howard. Great students, great teachers, and a warm community. Only thing plaguing Howard is a lack of government and private funding, and a slight problem with transparency with students from the administration. Overall though it is top 10 schools in America to me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of my institution is it is not my favorite place in the world, like some students, but it is a place where I am comfortable enough to come back to every school year. I have had amazing teachers who appear difficult, but truly care about your education in their class. I LOVE the food on campus and around campus in the DC scene, and the housing is getting better and better every year. It may be a little expensive from time to time, but it is definitely worth the experience and important lessons that come with it. I am truly proud of Howard University; they try their hardest to be the best that they can be, just like myself, and current and past students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, my brief experience at Howard has been an exciting one. There’s always something for you to do and explore. Academically, the math department could be better. Main problem with the infrastructure lies on Financial Aid and different Administrative departments. Dormitories are average facilities and food is also average as well. However the culture of the school is one to behold!

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.
