What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel as if Howard University should have more options for off and on campus housing due to the bigger class sizes always coming in. The options available are good options, but I also feel as if they should be updated, and modern. Most students will love spending more time on-campus if they know their dorm has a homey feel for them when they come back.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Alright, look...Howard is so popular but it's really like any other school. We experience hardships and most of the times we don't see where our money is going to, but there is still an experience to be had here. Our hardships are suffered with each other, the student body here is AMAZING. You feel the love and support and no matter who you are, there's no way you won't fit in. THERE ARE ALSO A LOT MORE OPPORTUNITIES PRESENTED TO US HERE!! PAID INTERNSHIPS CAN BE ATTAINED WITHIN THE BLINK OF AN EYE! That is definitely one thing I can say the administration does for us. Numerous well known companies come out all the time for our career fairs. Even before the career fairs, there are events and workshops that help with resume building, how to dress properly and tips on styling the African American kinky hair to still look presentable in a professional setting. There are some things that need to be improved on such as the school infrastructure, administration being more straightforward with students and not having us do a runaround between different departments for some information, etc. Over all, it's a great school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here. There is always something going on and I meet new people every day. We laugh, argue, cry, etc.. just like a huge family. It's a variety of people here, and I always learn something new each day about a different person. If I had a choice to go somewhere else, I would still choose to go to Howard University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Howard has a lot of aspects that they need to renovate, but overall I love this university. Aside from the housing crisis and collapsing buildings, this University is doing all they can to ensure the success of their students. They put passionate professors in charge of the "majors only" classes to make sure the students of each major are educated to the highest degree. The food has gotten a lot better since I first began attending this university and that is always good. I can't wait to come back to Howard next semester.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In an effort to figure out my career path, I took courses that were outside of my comfort zone. I took Fashion Marketing, Wall Street, Business Law, and Principles of Marketing and Advertising to name a few. I excelled in each of these classes, winning an award for a Wall Street competition. But more importantly, I enjoyed them, they quickly became my favorite classes. I developed a strong interest in consumer behavior and how the market responds to their trends. Each class unlocked a new skill and strengthened my passion for business. My teachers saw that I had a knack for business and encouraged me to join our school’s DECA and Business Olympics business clubs. These clubs were fun and gave me real world business experience. My Business Olympics team proposed a fundraising event for cystic fibrosis research. We decided on a silent auction and worked collaboratively to gain sponsors, secure a venue, and advertise the event to ensure it would be profitable. In DECA I've written job pitches, elevator speeches, interned with local companies, and engaged in business competitions. Not only did I enjoy these projects, but I was great at leading and executing them. The business clubs helped to solidify my decision to make business marketing my career choice. I have developed a love for business marketing and have demonstrated that I am highly skilled at it. I am on track to receive the New York State Business Honor Society Mastery of Business Achievement distinction for the work that I’ve done in class, in clubs, and in the community. Through my discovery journey, business marketing has become the space that I can explore the different facets of who I am. It takes advantage of my analytical and creative sides. I have developed strong presentation, leadership, and project planning skills and am looking forward to continuing to expand these studies at Howard. I am also looking forward to continuing my real world business experience through the partnerships that Howard has with various corporations.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's chill I guess. I don't mess with the folks there, a little elitist, as you would expect from a comfortably middle-class population. The professors are really active in advocacy and urge you to go beyond the privilege of academia to make an active change in the surrounding community. I don't know, it's chill.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In all honesty, Howard would be nothing without the spirit of the students. In its current state, the students are really the heart of this campus. There is low morale, but through it all we still stick it out because the culture that has been created and the history is incredible and it is a wonderful thing to be part of. Once you figure out how to navigate the administration and financial aid, it really is so rewarding to be here and know that this education isn't available at every institution and that's why I'm coming back. It truly is a place where the strong not only survive, but thrive, and the others are forced to grow up and deal with things that other students don't have to experience, but may need to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel like Howard is a great school with brilliant students but the administration completely sucks. If administration gets its act together and gets things done that need to be done around campus then it would be one of the best schools ever. But since they don't, it is a very frustrating experience especially for first year students.
