If you have full scholarships, or enough scholarships to fully cover your tuition every year you are here (because of the extra required PE classes and non sense divisionals you may be here longer than four years) then go for it and come, if not, go elsewhere, it is not worth the money and/or the debt. There are few good teachers but the hastle to get into the class you need is terrible. Be prepared for the run around by administration. If your're expecting excellence, you will be disappointed.

To a Prospective Howard student I would say to make sure you apply for any and every scholarship while you're in high school. It is imperative that one has their financial means as well as their grades in tact. Keeping your grades up can open up a lot of oppotunities for Howard students especially financially. If you are coming to Howard make sure you are ready and willing to stay focused and keep in mind what you are at school for. Don't waste the oppotunity, be prepared to learn, and make your freshman experiencence memorable.

Lauren-Nikai

So Howard was founded in 1867, and not a thing has changed. There has been some renovations here and there, but the best thing about our campus is the historic beauty. Our buildings may be old, but they hold stories that can never be replaced. Prefect example: The school of communications used to be Freeman's hospital. There are aspects of this building that are honestly quite appalling and may deter people from wanting to receive their education here, and even though the administration has been working on getting us a new building, many of us (including myself) would still hate to see the building go. Our history is so important, and its a way of knowing our culture and who we are, so its something you grow to love. A new building wouldn't say "this is the place where great people were literally born" or have the same ascetics as the rest of the buildings on campus. So the buildings are beautiful, in a historical way, but they can use some changes.

ebony

Tolisa

Howard University is bittersweet because its history gives students great confidence and pride in everything they attempt to do while we are definitely on our own when it comes down to keeping up grades and having to run around the school to get approvals, whether it may be housing, registration, or finances. Although our administration isn't the best, our love for the school's campus itself and its legacy always overcomes the glitches that we have to take care of day to day.
