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!
We are a band of brothers. We are a family in every sense the good, bad, and ugly. We battle but we love. I know that some brothers dislike other brothers at time but we all want to see that brother succeed. I truly believe that.
Its 2008 and people still battle everyday with the person they see in the mirror and the person who sets foot into the world. In a world where diversity is ever so embraced and self-expression has become the normality, people still find it easier to fit in with the masses. It has become more evident with the so-called “thugs” we have on campuses across this country. In a literal definition a thug is considered a violent person. Not to say we all don’t have tempers, but violence isn’t the purpose of being in school. Whether it is Morehouse, Clark Atlanta or any other institution, to carry that thug persona while trying to attain a college degree is a contradiction in every sense. Trying to understand what makes men want to appear so much harder or realer than the next has been challenging and can lead to many different conclusions. The most obvious reasons tend to be respect and women. Whatever flatters women and keeps you in the good graces of other men is usually what appeals. For some brothers they think being a thug is the answer. In being a thug there are also concepts that come along with it. It is reasonable for one to believe that those of us who come from harsher more threatening environments embrace the thug persona as opposed to rejecting it. When you live in a neighborhood where your life is constantly threatened that stage of development is just as normal as developing reading and math skills. In institutions of higher learning however, that is not the case. Those of us who are here have come here to better ourselves. Not to say we are all saints but none of us are thugs. Smoking, drinking, cursing, or playing music doesn’t make you a thug. The true thugs lurk outside of the campus. The true thugs are the ones who weren’t fortunate enough to call college home. Although some of those people may still be our friends the fact that we are here and they are where they are is a true testament to the reality of both of our situations. I say that we leave the street persona to the streets and embrace the persona that we all are really striving for. That is to be successful individuals and being a thug doesn’t in any way help that cause. This problem seems to be more evident in institutions that have a majority black population as opposed to others. In all honesty it is not hard to see why. Most of us don’t have very positive male role models in our lives. Many of us grew up with idolizing people we couldn’t touch or even talk to such as athletes. Some of us even grew up idolizing people who were not good for us such as drug dealers and even real thugs. In spite of all those factors we find ourselves here. We find ourselves living a life that can open so many doors for us and others. Yet, some of us show our appreciation by embracing a life that is cold and dark, a life that cares nothing about our well-beings. We must wake up and realize that we are in college to better not only ourselves but the world. Furthermore, to hold on to anything or any lifestyle that posses opposition to achieving that goal is defeating our purpose in being here. We must wake up and realize that our existence here now is greater than the one we left behind, and if the thug life was really meant for us, we would not be here. We must learn to embrace our being and express ourselves not by the standards of the masses, but rather by those we feel are right not only for we ourselves, but for everyone.
I disagree with both not because I attend but because I strongly feel Morehouse is still that great beacon of light that gives the entire black community hope and guidance. My feelings on that are the reasons why I chose to attend Morehouse in the first place.
Its sort of like tought love. Every teacher cares about you and pushes you to the limits because they care. I have the numbers and emails of all of my professors and know each one of them to some degree or another. Students here are highly competitive but it pushes all of us to be great. Mays told us to be so good that no man living, dead, or ever to be bron can do it better. That is the foundation of our academics and our response to it will determine how high the elavators of our skyscrapers will go.
It is an HBCU in its truest sense. We have had speakers from Bill Cosby to Ray McGuire. Being at "The House" really allows chances we wouldnt have recieved elsewhere. To be good here there must be balance. Parties are a part of the experience but academics are the reason why you are here.
We are considered arrogant and the school has been rumored to be falling off from the days of King and Mays.

It's no different from any other school that is held at a very high regard; the place is a microcosm of real life. I will say that the school atmosphere is generally right of middle with traditional conservative values placed on a high pedestal. Don't come in expecting anything and you will be satisfied with what you get.
Due to the conservative nature of the school the student body is slow to accept personality differences that lend themselves to a sub-culture not commonly associated with Black people. Hippies, punks and metal heads be warned.
The facilities aren't the best in the world. There is still a huge problem with neighborhood crime. The food is not friendly to vegetarians and there's very little for vegans to eat. If you have a standout personality but are kind be prepared to be called gay. Be prepared for the Holy Warriors. No you do not know everything about your religion. You will struggle at some time. It is true you can't play on the grass. Graves Hall is not all it is cracked up to be, neither are the people who stay there. I am sorry if you have to stay in the Quad. Have a way to get safely on and off campus. Make friends off campus. Don't come here if you are weak. Don't come here if you can't afford it. Like anywhere else this place is merely what you make of it.
No. The problem is that the typical Morehouse student is overshadowed by the personalities of the student who fits into the stereotypes.
Most students are very enthusiastic about the professors they have. In fact the professors give Morehouse something really special. I will say it is not the best place to go to if you want to major in the fine arts, as we have no fine arts programs here. One negative is the fact the library is lacking in Literature from about the 1960's to the present, but does keep a good section on religion and has excellent access to online acedemic publications.
I rarely participate in school sponsored activities, even if they are sponsored by school frats, clubs etc. I am away from campus frequently. I am a big art head so I am in midtown or East Atlanta a lot. Due to the stigma of the perception of a Morehouse Man I commonly seek women out of the AUC. Our SGA is a non existent entity which means the best events are usually off campus.
We are all stuck up. We are all biased towards women. Most of us are gay. We are all assholes. We aren't that interested in Black women. Pretty much any stereotype about successful middle and upper class black men.

....... I got a scholarship? That's a good thing...
you really want me to answer this?
Most of the 'men' in this school have an ego... I mean at levels so high that it can induce vomiting. They definitely cannot solve a problem another can't because most of them are so lazy...if a good show is coming on, they definitely will skip class... No joke. And finally, these people here are not in the least socially aware because they are all kinds of ignorant! As much international people they have up here, they refuse to learn something from them. But thank God that at least 5% of the student population is the opposite and actually are modest, apt, and socially aware.
don't get me started here
One is that they have a huge ego. Another is that they can solve any problem that anyone else can't...and the biggest laugh of them all is that allegedly, they are renaissance men with a social conscience.... Ha!

The best thing about Morehouse College is the brotherhood and comradely. Though we are a predominately black institution we are a diverse group of men with so many different backgrounds. We come together, work together, and look out for one another. I tell people back home in Bermuda I have 3 brothers, at Morehouse College I have 3000 brothers... The only thing I would change at Morehouse is the Registration process for class overload. Morehouse is a small school and I really do like that way. When people here I go to Morehouse they are immediatly impressed and think I am very smart.. On campus I spend most of time in class but when I am not there I am usually sitting on the benches in front of the cafeteria...(the caf)... Morehouse Administration- I really depends on who you are dealing with...Some people are very lazy, others are anal, while some are helpful and willing to go the extra mile for you... Biggest controversy on campus right now is how the image of the Man of Morehouse (enrolled students...) and the Morehouse Man image is changing. There is great school pride at Morehouse!! One experience I will never forget...New Student Orienation... Frequent student complaints..
The most likely students to feel out of place at Morehouse are caucasions... Most students wear t-shirts and jeans to class..business majors where shirt and tie... All types of students at Morehouse interact with each other... Most students from Morehouse come from North U.S. There is a mix of students financial situations but most students from Middle class families.. Students are politically aware..GO BARACK!!!..... Students do talk about how much they will earn one day......
It is not true that all men who go to Morehouse College are homosexual. Its statistcally impossible. As for the arrogance, I beleive that it can often be mistaken for the confidence that we exude.
Yes, many professors know you by name... Favorite class was Management Information System (MIS)..because it was a real life business simulation class...learned very useful information. least favorite class: Business Statistics..(self expalnatory) Class participation is very common. The most intellectual conversations that I have ever had happened outside the class...just sitting around doing nothing.... Morehouse College is a very competitive atmosphere... Most unique...I am a business major we don't really take unique courses... I don't spend time with professors outside of class.... Academic Requirements are very challenging but they aren't unrealistic... Education at Morehouse College is geared toward getting a job...
Most popular group would be the SGA... STRIPES is a group of tour guides...we work with Admissions... Most students leave their dorm rooms open if they are going down the hall to vist a friend or going to the rest room... Athletic events are sparsely attended...excecpt for the first game of the season... Dating scence..go over to Spelman College and pick your wife!! lol I met my closest friends from attending dorm events.... If im awake at 2am on Tuesday im having the best conversation with my friends..or studying for a test...or finishing off a paper for a 8am class.. We party pretty often.... Fraternities are very important to college life at Morehouse College... Last weekend I went to a few valentines parties...attened a Keisha Cole concert...chilled at the mall..and wrote a paper..and studied... Saturday night without drinking..go to the movies..bowling...take a girl to dinner...plenty of parties...throw a house party...rent a movie and invite people over...theres sooo much.. off campus I do a lot..
Stereotypes of Morehouse college is that because Morehouse is an all male institution they are all gay. There is also the stereotype that we think we are better than people who don't go to Morehouse or Spelman(all female college)
