What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school, don't get me wrong. But there's a lot that needs to be fixed on campus- buildings, both dorms and academic, have issues with flooding, mold, rat infestation, etc. By buildings I mean not one or two, but literally most of them. And don't get me started on the issues with admin and financial aid. It's like they don't even care about the students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If there were one word to describe Howard, it would be eclectic. Despite being an HBCU, Howard University is one of the most diverse campuses I have been on. Howard University encompasses the black diaspora from culture and beliefs all the way to diverse languages. It is an amazing feeling to be given the opportunity to collaborate with intellects from across the globe. This diversity heightens your awareness on issues that may be happening outside of your community. The students on this campus are all mini revolutionaries who recognize their potential and refuse to remain stagnant in the face of oppression and mistreatment, whether it is from the government or Howard University. People outside of Howard admire our resilience and notice that this is the place where all voices and opinions are welcomed. Howard University lets you know that someone is listening and that change lies in your own hands. So, come to Howard and be the change!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard University, also known as "The Mecca". Sounds beautiful and enticing. The student body recognizes that and tries their best to ensure that their work ethic lives up to this name. But more often than not we find ourselves struggling to find the support we need to keep our work ethic strong. Beginning with the fact that student's on campus housing are poor living conditions. What we experience here are unheard of at other institutions. For example, one of our male dorms went without hot water for weeks. Then one of the female dorms flooded. But that's not the only place where Howard lacks. They lack in the administration building as well. Long lines of students who can be there for hours only to straighten out a financial aid issue or to clear a medical hold. Losing paperwork or not having a clear communication with students. One person saying one thing but then another administrator denying that. The administration system overall needs work. As someone who's majoring in the performing arts, having quality performing spaces is something I care about. Having quality equipment is something we need but aren't provided with. Our musical theatre majors only have one piano, we don't have any rehearsal spaces within the fine arts building, the list could go on. Then it happens quite often that the school leaves fine arts to operate on its own, leaving us to deal with our own issues. Only being left to say that Howard in regard to it's care for students educational tools, is very poor. Sitting in the middle of the nation's capital, one may assume that the student body and campus has an abundance of resources at the edge of their fingertips. That because this school is in the faces of many important people, it should be cared for. But unfortunately we have been left in the blind. I feel as though we appreciate Howard so we attend to be apart of up keeping it's legacy but this appreciation is not reciprocated for it's students. Howard's legacy is what drives the student body so well. To work hard, graduate and be someone. That part is excellent. There is an understood feeling of pride and family and togetherness that has pushed students to fight thought their four years. That is what makes Howard, Howard. It's beautiful. Something that couldn't be rated on a scale of five stars. That's how great it is to be a student here, to feel as though you're a part of something much larger than yourself. It is what keeps us going. Howard is not perfect. It will just take time to get there.

Howard University is not only the Mecca of Black education, but it also serves as the most diverse melting pot of Black people in America. Here, all of these beautiful, Black people, from African American to Afro Cuban, Afro Caribbean and so many others, come together to learn, grow, and succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard definitely has its sour spots, but this is a school/environment like no other. The Howard experience is so amazing that it kinda overshadows all the negatives of the school. You get to meet people from al over the world/country that all have different ways of thinking and looking at the world, but are all willing to come together to share their thoughts and opinions and enact change in our community.
