What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard is an overall great school, however, there are some things that could be better within the Financial Aid, Housing & Academic Department. The food has had its ups and downs but we find a way to make it work. Professors can be tough to deal with sometimes but if you stand firm to what you believe in or simply complete the class to the best of your ability, you won’t have any issues. Besides these rough patches you gain an exceptional experience opportunity wise. You meet new and create new long lasting friendships/partnerships. Politically, there is absolutely nothing we won’t protest. Seeing how passionate and determined Howard’s students are shows outsiders that we only want what’s best for this campus and if we have to protest to help make a change then so be it. At Howard you gain experience through challenges and obstacles thrown in your way and your job is to get through them as best as you can. Greek life is very important to this campus as many of them were originated at Howard. Not only has Greek life become important but so have extracurricular activities. Clubs that are as little as a book club or a dance team are an important part of our experience. These organizations and activities not only give students a chance to meet new students but a chance to become a better person and to find what it is you truly love to do. These few experiences can turn into a lifestyle or career.

Howard University is my number one HBCU. The STEM program provided at this institution is remarkable. The culture surrounding this university creates a feeling of family. The interaction among teachers & students is not comparable to any other university that I have visited.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Howard University is the number one HBCU in the world. The environment and people are incredible. The truth is that it never is as bad as people say it is at Howard. That is not to say that you won't have issues with the administration, because it is an HBCU and goes through organization issues. However, I can honestly say that the collection of black excellence here is uniquely overwhelming. The student body is full of ambitious, passionate, and intelligent people dedicated to growing as students. We support each other to reach our goals and understand this is a place to grow as minds and as a culture. I love it here and cannot imagine going anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard University is that aunt or uncle who's never around but always slips you money when you see them. Though administrative support is extremely lacking, the support the student body has for each other is remarkable. You may find yourself in one of many long lines in the financial aid office or the health clinic or the cafeteria but there is hope in knowing that you'll always have a fellow student standing beside you willing to start up a conversation as you both try to find comic relief in what can be a chaotic situation. At Howard, we laugh to keep from crying, we dance unsure of what tomorrow will bring, and we hold each other close as we embrace what's ahead. We've had financial aid scandals, cold water in our dorms, and entire buildings destroyed by weather damages. Yet these things don't keep spirits down. You can always catch students having photo shoots on "The Yard" or cyphers in the cafeteria. The Howard experience is what you make it and the student makes unbearable things actually bearable. Not heat in your dorm? No problem. You an your floormates get cozy in the study lounge as you discuss America's political climate or the latest news in pop culture, hoping hot topics will warm you up. Often times we unite because of the hardships we face and help each other through it. This is what makes Howard University such a beautiful place. You may find that though you may not always see it right away, there's always a metaphorical hand slipping you $20 under the dining room table, waiting for you to grab it and make the most of your future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard University as a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) provides a rich learning experience for her students leading to academical, cultural and self-discovery. Howard University does not only provides the opportunity to explore the academic field of study but also gives the opportunity to discover oneself which leads to career and self-fulfillment. The commitment of the faculty to excellent service is a huge motivation for students to go beyond surface level learning and be part of change agents in the society. Currently, Howard University is the only HBCU to be ranked in the U.S News and World's Report's Best Colleges Ranking of National Universities at 124th position in the 2017 Edition which is an improvement from the previous Edition of 135th position. However, one major concern that needs to be addressed quickly is the maintenance culture. One gets to see quite a number of facilities that are not properly maintained and I guess that was the reason for the break of heating system in some of the major buildings last winter.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Howard University. The culture and the black excellence is everything you could ever want in a school. I've built amazing relationships (on campus and off) with staff, students and alumni. I usually have very small classroom settings so I was able to build relationships with my professors and they were very helpful and accessible during the semester. We have a great balance of social life and academic life. Many students are very driven and goal oriented and they inspire me to be my best self and strive towards my goals. The history that comes with the traditional campus makes my love grow for it each and every day. Although it is not perfect, Howard has been my dream school for years and I would tell everyone to come here if I could.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I think of the illustrious Howard University, I truly think of "the Mecca," as it is so often called. Howard University is one of the, if not THE, best school for people of African descent. There's no other school where black students have the opportunity to find themselves as students, as professionals, and most of all as a black human beings. It's an amazing feeling to wake up every day and go to class surrounded by scholars who actually look like you. We all have an understanding of the same struggle, so it's comforting to be able to intellectually discuss the status of black America (or lack there of) in the dormitories, in the classrooms, on the "yard." There's no other environment where students have access to an outlet like this. It's also in the heart of Washington D.C so there's always something to do! Howard University is the total package: there are some discrepancies such as the poor administration and housing, but the good truly does out weigh the bad.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There is no place I would have wanted to receive my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from than Howard University. The capstone, the Mecca, the illustrious top historically Black college or university, Howard University has continuously bred excellence through its dedication to scholarship, truth and service for more than 150 years. I feel extremely blessed and honored to have been afforded the opportunity to matriculate into an institution that holds such a legacy and has proven to be so impeccably influential in the lives of millions of students of color.
