What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Howard experience is all about culture. Coming here you will find yourself and discover so much about yourself, especially if you are black/ African american in some way. The cultural aspect of the school is definitely what stands out. Being from a foreign country and having a different cultural background is cherished and put on a high pedestal here. You will see people from places you have never heard of, speaking languages you did not even know existed. The people here are so friendly, you meet and speak to different people everyday whether you are an introvert or an extrovert and people are very quick to help here. The main issue with Howard is the administration. Going to the financial aid office is a nightmare, you are guaranteed to have to stay in line for at least and hour and even after you do speak with someone your issue will probably not be solved. You will learn how to be very independent here and learn how to do things for yourself like actively go out and looks for jobs or internships because you will not get much help from the school at all. Overall the atmosphere is my favorite part of Howard, will I stay here for all four years? We will see.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm a freshman and got here in early August. So far it's been an amazing experience. I love how there's always something to do on campus and I'm never bored. Inspiring well known people are on campus every other week not to mention the homecoming we just had. Long story short Howard Homecoming is not something you want to miss. Food is better than I thought it would be and there are several other options than just the cafeterias. Administration needs work because it takes forever to get a simple answer. The financial aid office needs to get more organized because between fighting for my scholarship during my first week, I've had a rough time and I know lots of other students have too. I love the school so far and can't wait to spend the next four years here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard University is a great school overall. There are some kinks in areas such as administration, appearance, and other things but I feel like that is somewhat balanced out by the amount of culture and knowledge that you are able to get simply by walking outside. In terms of administration, sometimes it just takes some time and running around to different people to get things squared away, but once you find that one right person to talk to then you are basically set for the rest of your time and whatever else you need, which I'm sure is true of many universities. Then, on the pro side, we have several intelligent and successful people here, not only referring to faculty/professors, but students as well. The people and educational experience along with all of the fun and enriching opportunities is what makes Howard University worth it for me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the experience that I am having at Howard University because I rarely find myself feeling "othered" as I have felt at predominantly white institutions. With so many people from different places you are bound to learn about different cultures. There are also many students groups including an LGBTQIA+ group and if you have not found the group you are looking for you can make it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard University is the greatest HBCU, however it does have it's shortcomings. There is an overwhelming sense of community and love surrounding the campus. School spirit is huge and to the point that when you find out that another person went to Howard you're automatically friends. Administration could you a lot of work, but overall the people I've met and the things I've learned have changed my life for the better. If I could go back to the college decision and choose again I would pick Howard all over again.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard University is what you make. Everyone whom has come and graduated here will all have something different to say about this institution. However, so far for me I love this place. I have met so many people from all over the world with all different perspectives having me learn to accept and appreciate others views and I also learned so much about myself socially, culturally, and spiritually. This establishment has been here for over 100 years and it has definitely change since it opened in 1867. However, it has no change in a sense that people attend this place to come in one way and come out successful and ready to change the world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a college, it has some stuff a lot of people are looking for, and it has some stuff you might not be looking for but may find yourself interested in. Personal it has a lot that I don't care for, but many people love. I like to just soberly hang out and be easy.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The implied segregation and hate of white people and the awkwardness it causes for a mixed race individual. People at my school are too quick to blame the white man instead of just a man, and the opinions are strong. I was once in an African Studies class with a professor from Mozambique. The professor singled me out for a demonstrative question, but it did not go how he planned. He was trying to explain that charity starts at home, in relation that back in Africa people helped their cultural companions, then countrymen, then neighbors outside of that. Unfortunately American culture does not operate the same as African. Where as Africa is a diverse continent, America is but one country where we collectively try to have a similar culture from west coast to east. The professor asked me if a white man and a black man were drowning who would I save. I replied to him whoever was closest, to which he immediately responded equal distance. Again evading a direct answer I say I'll save the man struggling more, with the same speed he tells me, equal struggle. I tell him it's an unfair question and I do not want to answer. At this point he had been holding up class focusing on my unwillingness to make a decision. The rest of my class, predominately African American, verbally displeased and stating their own answers. It made me uncomfortable how quickly, confidently, and proudly they stated their answers. I am only alive because a white man from Indiana came from his state to California and fell in love with my grandmother. That man has done much for me, and his people are my people just as my grandmother's. I refused to forsake a whole group of people to pacify a class and professor and the ordeal left me feeling outside of the campus culture and student body. Over the coming months the distance grew.
