Undoubtedly, the skinny, 17 year old Kyle Jacob would be ecstatic to see a slightly taller Kyle Jacob who looks much older due to the stress of his first semester at Morehouse College. He would be excited that in nine months, his tufts of chin hair would evolve into a full beard that needed constant shaving. Im almost certain he would have many questions I couldnt answer, 18 year old Kyle has many priorities at Morehouse and little time to waste. "Listen closely", I would tell him, although I wouldnt need to, even the Kyle of today listens intently to a man trying to educate. "Focus" I would say. In highschool, many things deterred my focus as a student. With my 20/20 view on the past, I would break down our vices; girls, television and facebook. He would learn that by reducing the time spent on these things, it would clear up his schedule for more productive purposes, like scholarships. I would let him know that know that Morehouse is struggling financially and even if he did well, there was no guarantee that the school would be able to aid him financially. "Do scholarships for an hour a day".
I brag about the brotherhood at my school the most. The family atmosphere here is second to none, and is a principle promoted since the days of our New School Orientation. Upperclassmen go out of their way to support an upcoming freshman, however their efforts usually are not enough. Every student here has the potential to be great because they learn off of their predecessors mistakes, however, it is possible for many students here to become distracted with issues of lesser importance.
The most frustrating thing about Morehouse College has to be its financial assistance department. Although Morehouse College was voted the best college for black men, it has a hard time supporting its students, many who come from middle class families that need help paying for their son's education. Many 4.0 students have had to leave due to the strain their tuition and room & board has put upon them. It is frustrating how such potential can easily be extinguished at such a fine institution.

First off, begin narrowing down your college choices. Consider important things like if they have your major, number of students who get a job six months after graduating, teacher to student ratio, internship opportunuties, scholarships given,etc. As you will see, all these things matter to help benefit you in the long run. Not if its a party school or if your friends and girlfriends are going there. Secondly, start doing more with your self so you will be adapted by the time college comes around. Do community service, start your own programs, get a job and save up for college, or get into some school clubs and organizations. These things will help you learn about time management in college which is a big plus if you know a thing or two about. They also will look good on your application when applying for college. Colleges do not just look at your grades, but they also see if you were involved and doing positive activities in your free time. Lastly, take a little time out of each and every day to fill out scholarships online. There are so many scholarships out there for all students not to do this.
The most frustrating thing about my school is the lack of scholarships available. There are a lot of students who have a 3.5 G.P.A or better like myself at the end of this semester who get no scholarships from the school at all. This is a private school so it is not cheap at all. I think if you are making the grades and applying your self in programs and such then you deserve some help financially.

Morehouse has a legacy of producing America's great African American leaders.
Kevin, do you remember the many conversations we had in 2007 about going to college? The transition from high school to college is not easy, and although you are a star athlete, and a good student, college is going to be a lot more demanding of your time. I suggest you learn the principles of time management, improve your study habits, and most important, improve your writing skills. You have great social skills, but all play and a little bit of work will not get you through that first year at Morehouse. Get your resume done, take a couple of challenging classes this year, and get involved in community service. The good times and the girls will come if you take care of your business first. Talk to Terrence, he just finished his first year at "The House." It is all about taking the initiative , treating your school like a business, and developing a relationship and rapport with your teachers. Most important, STUDY.....READ.....STUDY....and STUDY! Kevin, you have all the potential in the world. It is time to untap that potential and convert it to the greatest success story ever. Kevin A. Jones...Deans list, Morehouse College! Yeah!

Morehouse College is known for its rich history in producing leaders, known as Morehouse Renaissance Men. These students are different from the average college student, because they take an active role in their community while upholding the standards of academic excellence. These Renaissance Men shatter and denounce the statistics of their race, achieving heights that inspire other African Americans to not only follow in their footsteps but surpass them and achieve even greater heights. The perfect example of this Renaissance man is Martin Luther King Jr., class of 1948, one of the most distinguished civil rights leaders of the world.
If I could go back in time and talk to myself, I would encourage myself to have worked harder in all classes to boost GPA and apply for more scholarships, and be a more proactive person in the transition from high school to college; this would include, following through with financial aid and being aware of financial obligations, as well as understanding class transfer credits. Knowing the limitations placed on time and constraints of scheduling, I would inform myself that there is a lot of class time that I could have skipped and explain to myself the advantages of starting ahead of most incoming students. I also became involved with Japanese foreign language this fall semester and if I had the chance to go back and talk to myself I would encourage taking another Japanese course, and studying during the summer so that I could have started the class on a higher level. Overall my advice would help me get ahead of the ?game? and make the transition from high school to college much easier. But I say this knowing that all I have gone through has been a learning experience and I appreciate all of my experiences.
Before attending Morehouse College I wish that I would have understood the seriousness of financial aid in college. While in high school financial aid did not seem as urgent and important, since school was paid for; but now I see that there are several places in which someone can acquire financial aid, it just requires determination and a will to search and work. With that said, I also wish I knew about the amount of personal effort needed to succeed in college, because it is not enough to attend and pass classes, you must also understand financial obligations.

Timothy continue what you are doing right, because you are headed to one of the finest school's in the country. You will be walking and eating on the same campus Martin Luther King did. The school will prepare you to be a renaissance man.
The worst thing about my school is the tution and boarding cost, very expensive, but its worth every penny.
Their is nothing frustrating about my school. It's a fine prestigous school.

Morehouse College is an illustrious institution focused on developing renasissance men with a social conscience who will one day redefine the world. My school provides opportunities like no other for males of color to develop a brotherly bond in which each member exemplifies the 5 Wells created by our current president Dr. Robert Michael Franklin: Well Read, Well Traveled, Well Spoken, Well Dressed, and, most importantly, Well Balanced. By fulfilling these Wells, a Morehouse Man acknowledges that our community holds a crown above our head so high that we must reach and grow in order for us to wear it.
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.
DON'T SLACK OFF! Yes, I know it's senior year and your ready to graduate, but it's not over until it's over. People always say that college's look at your junior year primarily to determine whether you're in or out. While this may be true, they look at your senior year to decide if you get any institutional scholarships. Listen to me, if you slack off, you will be using your freshman year in college taking out numerous loans and frantically searching for scholarships to do. But if you set yourself up now in a way in which the college of your choice cannot refuse you and MUST give you money, you are set.
My school helps mold boys into men with a distinction, who will change the world, one step at a time.

If I were to go back and talk to myself as a high school senior I believe I would congratulate myself and teachers for preparing me to succeed in college. As I know go through my second semester of College I believe that I made a very smooth transition. In high school the main attributes I acquired that prove successful in college is good work ethic, time management, perseverance, independence, and most importantly the ability to have fun. Without fun the rest of those things will not work efficiently. Without fun comes stress, lack of time management, and other factors that are not beneficial to the college experience. So if I had to go back I would tell myself above all, to keep doing what you are doing. And also I would say "never forget how to have fun, because when you do, you will forget how to succeed."
A person who is willing to change the world by allowing themselves to be a vessel in which the change can be flowed through. We plan to change the world by being: well-balanced, well- traveled, well-read, well-dressed, and well-spoken.

Morehouse College is a small, very prestigious, private school with the mindset that takes pride in old tradition, which is helpful, yet harmful when efforts made to progress in a world of change occur.
If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would advise myself to attend the school I always wanted to attend ? Howard University. By attending Howard University, my parents would have not struggled financially, and neither would have I. If ever there were a time when I had no roof over my head, such as now, I would have been close to home and able to use my resources to my advantage. I would have advised myself to save money from previous job experiences to cover the costs of textbooks and other needed materials not included in tuition costs. Most importantly, I would have advised myself to fill out more scholarship applications with conviction, having faith that my current financial situation would not be harming my pursuit of further education. By advising myself to take scholarship applications more seriously, my chance of receiving financial awards would increase early in my college experience. Advising more initiative in filling out scholarship applications serve as building the foundation of a strong financial structure in college.
A growing man desiring to expand his every horizon in the real world in order to be successful is a person who should attend Morehouse College. Those men with disciplined minds and willing lead a life of leadership and service are the men who should attend Morehouse College.

I would definitely make geographical location and surroundings, campus size, and population important factors to consider. Though we sometimes choose colleges based on financial assistance, the 4 or 5 college years are an important transitional stage in our lives, and we should be as comfortable in our enviornment as possible. For many of us, it is our first experience away from home without parental supervision or advicce an earshot away. Socially, I have always been comfortable with who I am and the choices I make morally, so I would say to stay true to that person. Consciously work on personal growth. Have fun, but do not succumb to peer pressure just because you are "on your own". Remember to set short term goals so you can see steady growth academically, socially and in personal maturation over these college years. I definitely recommend getting help from teachers, tutors or study groups as soon as you find yourself struggling in a class. You may want to take on the challenge yourself, thinking "I got this", but it will only hurt you in the long run. Use everything your campus has to offer. Embrace this once in a lifetime experience!
I consider that fact that Morehouse College is a HBCU, to be the best because it allows us to have healthy, everyday competition with our peers in all aspects of life. Though all black, we come from diverse groups of academic, economic, national and cultural backgrounds, which provides a range of "competitors". Students bring a balance, from bookworms, to those that are in books 24/7, to the the middle of the road students, all who bring academic interpretations and opinions . Class sizes benefit socially by exposing different student body groups, which allows us to appreciate students with various struggles.
Actually, I don't find anything frustration about Morehouse College. Perhaps, since it is an all male student population, I could say the lack of exposure to females, but fortunately the location is in a triangle, with Spellman College (all female), and Clark Atlanta University as neighbors.
