What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard University is a very unique school. There are many things about Howard that I do not like. The on campus housing is not an equal experience for everyone and the faculty and administration can stand to be more organized. What I can say about Howard that is exceptional is the culture. The events, the people. and the connections you make really do help set you up better than a lot of bigger schools.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard is an environment that pushes you to thrive to be the best you. Being surround by other black and educated people provides a sense of home and growth. Although the school has its downfalls in certain areas, there is always something that just makes up for it. Howard University is what you make it and you can make it anything you want!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard University is a great school. Despite Howard being a historically black college, it is very diverse. There are students from all 50 states and a plethora of countries. Howard's motto is "In truth and service" and you can definitely see that service is a huge part of the award community. I am a proud student of Howard University and hope that the school continues to thrive for years to come.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've never imagined applying and attending an HBCU until I stepped on Howard's campus. There is no words that can describe the artistry and excellence I felt and still breathe every day I'm on campus. Despite personal challenges and finances, Howard has taught me that anything can happen if you work for it. My first semester of college here has changed my paradigm about what it is that I passionate about aka teaching and who I want to become. There is always somebody in your corner and Howard will make sure you are aware of it. "In Truth and Service", my excellence is waiting to unleash.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Attending Howard University is an experience like none other. Between its iconic location, historical significance, and the plethora of intellectual faculty and students; it is impossible to make it 4 years without intellectual growth, better self-awareness, a fresh perspective and the ability to never take "no" for an answer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its the people that make coming to Howard worthwhile. Majority of the faculty is keen on helping students out inside and outside the classroom which is greatly appreciated by most students. The administration needs major improvements and the dormitories are in desperate need of upgrades.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The positive aspects of this school are most definitely the school spirit and the on-campus clubs and activities. If you're from Howard, you automatically make that connection with another HU student or alum. The bond between Bison is as strong as super glue. There are also more than 20 groups and organizations on campus where many people can find a place to belong or do something they enjoy. The negative aspects of the school are the academics, dining, administration/staff, "late" culture, and lack of diverse thought. Most of the teachers do not teach well, forcing you to learn the material yourself and hoping that you get those test questions right. The cafeteria is horrible. I am a vegan and there is a greater variety than at the beginning of the year, however the selection is still very narrow. Even non-vegans on campus complain how horrible the food is (not to mention the ridiculously expensive meal plan prices). Getting anything done with financial aid and registration is difficult because either the staff doesn't know what they are doing or they take a very long time to get the task finished. There's also a campus-wide habit of being late to events, so I always have to deal with the awkwardness of arriving on time only for everyone else to show up 10 minutes later. Finally, it seems like there is no diverse opinion here. Everyone hates white people (although they would never admit to it) and they only see there problems caused by "institutional racism" or being a woman. Overall, despite the fact that there are more negatives than positive, I only rated HU three stars because this experience is what I make of it. I am telling myself that this school needs me for improvement. I need to be the change that I want to see.
