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

I believe that the student has the right to choose whatever school he/she wants to attend. I feel that when you choose a school, choose it not by how great the atmosphere on campus is, but how great the general atmosphere by its surroundings is also. It really matters alot. Thats how easy students drop out of college and end up going back home wishing they could do it ovr. I feel that college is for everyone because of economy nowdays. People just dont want to apply themselves and go for what laws now a days suggest us to do. So students choose a school that would be successful for you. Also pray about it an make sure that your maker and creator guides you to go.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I believe the fact that some students pay all that money and if we are off campus, we still dont have a meal plan or parking permits that are at an affordable price.

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

What I would say to the parents and the students about finding the right college and making the most out their college experience, If your looking forward to enhancing you and your child education. If the parent is really involved and really care about there child education never just take your son or daughter/nor college word for it. Check the COLLEGE out for yourself, do some background work and also do alot of site seeing, when it come to the different colleges you and your child might be attending, because your child is pursuing their education and as well spending your MONEY. So my advice for the parent and the student is "This is your life so make it count"... make it your life and death desision because once you start you don't want to stop, you will miss the whole college experience, and the most experience you should want recieve in college is your college education.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Morehouse College is a historically Black school engrossed in a rich tradition of educating the top African-American males in the world and is a place of immense brotherhood.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is best known for producing the top Black males in terms of academics and preparation for life in general as well. At Morehouse, the students are a part of an environment cultivating intellectual prowess and being a well-rounded leader. In addition "Morehouse men," as we are so called, are also known for their excellent public speaking skills and public service.

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

I feel that in order to find the right college, a student must evaluate not solely their professional goals, but also their personal goals as well. It is necessary to attend an institution based firstly on your academic endeavors, but one must also focus on what type of personal growth he/she wants to experience. In order to make the best of the college experience, I feel the most important attribute to display is that of an open mind. Listening to others who are from numerous backgrounds can give you insight into aspects of life you may have never considered and can give you a different outlook on life. Having the ability to be open to growth is key because college is about finding yourself and stabilizing your morals, views, and beliefs. Also, focusing on academics is necessary in order to make it to the next level, whatever that may be. As for parents, it is important to aid your child in the process of choosing a school, but understand that he/she needs to attend a school that is right for them, not you.

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

Choose a place that you think will make you happy for the undergraduate experience. Also choose once, which makes the most sense financially, especially if you intend to attend a graduate or professional school to further your studies. Use the graduate school experience to live the ultimate dream, if it is not as accessible while applying for your undergraduate institution.

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

From the perspective of a sophomore at a private historically black college, I would encourage parents and students to spend several months researching colleges or universities of their interests. The best way to do this can include making use of online resources such as school websites, reading comparative analyses of colleges in books by Thomson Peterson or Kaplan, and if possible, making campus visits. By taking time to research and visit these schools, you put yourself in a better situation to choose the best college for you according to your academic, social, and/or spiritual interests. Once you enroll in college, you must realize that while you are on your own and away from home, it is solely up to you to stay focused with classes and not allow life's distractions such as peer pressure to pull you out of college. Thus, it is important that you establish a balance between your academic, social, and spiritual life because this is what will determine your overall success in college. This balance can be made quite easy by not only establishing a network with college officials, but also by making your net work for you in whatever way you see fit.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person that should attend this school is someone who is energetic about excelling in their academics, lending a helping hand to his classmates whenever it is needed, and offering service to the community. This person should ultimately desire to grow into a Renaissance Man--a man who embodies integrity, loyalty, humility, and strives to make this world a better place. Furthermore, from the mission statement of our president, Dr. Robert Franklin, this person should aspire to be "well-read, well-dressed, well-spoken, well-traveled, and well-balanced".

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.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Producing Morehouse Men. Morehouse is a HBCU with some weight to it. I came to Morehouse thinking it was just some school, but when people find out you go to Morehouse heads will turn. I've heard stories of men getting picked for jobs based off of ability and the Morehouse name. I personally was at an interview and when the woman heard I went to Morehouse, she told me I already had the job and the rest of the interview was just a formality.

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

Make sure the area is one that will be friendly to your child/yourself. Many colleges may be accepting but the surrounding area may be totally different than what your used to. Remember that when you go to a college your also going to a new area, which is just as important as your college choice.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Money. Make sure you have a plan ready if your going to go with using Financial Aide. Also make sure you check to see what scholarships are available because there is a lot of money out there for college students that isn't being used. It doesn't even take that much to get the money, sometimes just a essay or even just an application. Then once you get to school, see if there are any school jobs, make sure you have money because the worst thing is being a college student with no money

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

A socio-economically diverse group of black men who seek more than a college education and who feel called to be greater than society has tagged them to be.

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

Do your research prior to your senior year of high school. Campus visits are a plus but be sure to attempt to communicate with a current student before you make a decision. Also parents should discuss with their children plans of payment options and their own personal expectations. Ultimately communication between parents and students and perspective colleges and students is key and should be an extensive process.

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

The legacy that Morehouse has is unlike any other school, and the community and brotherhood have a transcendent quality that many men of African ancestry seek but rarely find in today's society.
