Osco - 07/26/2022

I love Morehouse with all of my heart. The New Student Orientation made me fall in love with this space. No college or university is perfect. You may experience frustration with getting appointments or meeting with professors, but a Morehouse degree is going to take me, you, us, much farther than another degree. Consider Morehouse for sure. The brotherhood and camaraderie you develop are worth far more than you can imagine. You will always have brothers and friends and peers and staff to help you along the way. It is not perfect. Some offices have high turnover. But at the end of the day, I love it here.

Pierce - 08/06/2021

Best school to attend as a black male. There is a strong culture of pride. Success is not an option, it is an expectation. Faculty and staff all work together to ensure the success of everyone who attends Morehouse College. Alumni is also strong and supportive.

Morehouse College is an excellent school perfect for young men. Morehouse's mission is to teach young men to lead the world and reach their truest potentials. It also provides young black men with an HBCU experience and role models who can help them understand what it truly means to be a black man.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    To my high school self, here are some words of advice. First, know what you are going to major in. It is obvious, but the sooner you realize this, the more motivation you will have. Next, procrastination is a disease, vaccinate yourself immediately. A lot of stress can be avoided if you get the work done ahead of time. Cramming is not efficient. Instead, you will be wishing you had studied sooner when you realize you could have aced a test with a few more days preparation. Learn how to prioritize, it makes organizing a lot easier when assignments and activities begin to pile up. Skip the club that night if you have a deadline approaching, trust me there will be plenty more opportunities. Be social, you can make new friends and network to make future connections, but stay true to your values. When you choose friends, choose ones that you can trust and support each others ideas. Also, avoid debt at all costs, its no fun owing money before you start you career. Most importantly, enjoy the experience. There were will be trying days, but remember you are there to make a life yourself and your family.

  3. Describe the students at your school.

    My classmates are like no other. The men I am proud to attend this institution with are the most diverse males on this Earth. Hailing from almost all 50 states as well as nations like the Bahamas and Haiti, we possess varying backgrounds that have established in us certain morals and values. This withstanding, I have yet to meet anyone who does not respect the opinions of others. This will be the one place where you see men of color intellectually speaking and realizing this is our start to being the movers and shakers of our time.

  5. What's unique about your campus?

    I Love how the students here get together in study groups and try very hard to help each other out with their studies. Sometimes it gets hard but I keep working. I like the hours of the cafeteria which allows those of us that have early or late classes to still get a good meal. I like the way that problems are handle in the dorms. I am grateful for the workstudy program because it allows me to have a little cash in my pocket and that helps out for washing my cloths and getting my other personal items.

  7. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    When I tell my friends about my school, I brag most about the fact that Morehouse is a Historically Black College & University. I proclaim this the most because I personally feel that I have been granted such a strong support system from people of my own race within the administration of Morehouse College. In addition, I established a great appreciation for the culturally-enhanced welcoming ceremonies for freshmen that were presented by an array of members of the Morehouse Family during New Student Orientation Week. These ceremonies enhanced my knowledge of our African roots and encouraged me to dream bigger.

  11. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    What I wish I had known before coming to Morehouse College would have been the relationship between professors and their students. They reach out to assist anyone in need but you have to grow up and speak up to your professors because if you do not show you are serious about your grades or that you need help they cannot reach out to you unless you reach out to them first

    Its sort of like tought love. Every teacher cares about you and pushes you to the limits because they care.

Mays told us to be so good that no man living, dead, or ever to be bron can do it better.

  18. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    In the big picture Morehouse is Morehouse. Like any school where the experiences are unique to your setting, it is hard to explain to outsiders. When we speak of "Club Woody" or "Hump Wednesday" or Crown Forum, others just dont understand. I have grown so much from the time I arrived here. I was told, "You wont get this experience anywhere else and I believe that." I love this place more than anything in the world and I would do anything to help it keep its name. I find myself growing attached to it when I am not with it. I find myself noticing things I didn't notice about it before on a daily basis. I find myself becoming a part of it just as much as it has become a a part of me. I find myself at Morehouse because I find Morehouse in me!
