Morgan State University is a great post-secondary institution. As with most universities, the experience one receives is based upon what that individual makes of their time at the university. I have attended MSU since 2007 and I been through an immense whirlwind of events. Nonetheless, I believe MSU is a stellar institution that promotes academic honesty and social integrity. The best thing about MSU is the camaraderie amongst the students. Anytime something major happens on the campus the students always band together to either celebrate, mourn, or embrace something. For instance, a memorable moment I will never forget, was in 2008 when President Barack Obama was elected into office. Over 2,000 students joined in the main parking lot and celebrated, screaming and shouting for joy as the first African American president took office.
The size of the school is perfect. MSU is not the largest populated school, however, it is not small either. This environment allows students to have that much needed one on one time with professors. The class size is never too full which means students always have their professor's attention.
If I had one complaint about Morgan State University it would be the lack of technology. Technology is so important in the world and it would be an advantage to the students if MSU offered the latest technological advances. The biggest complaint amongst students would probably be financial aid. I've heard plenty of students complain about the way they were mistreated in the financial aid department as well as students complaining about how slow things process in that department.
Despite some of unfortunate circumstances Morgan State University is an awesome institution. I appreciate the quality education I receive and the great environment MSU provides.
I love the overall atmosphere of the school, yes sometimes it can be boring and you find nothing to do but other times you can have so much fun. Its the people around you that really make the school, not doing anything while attending college would be a complete waste. One thing people can't stand about Morgan is Financial Aid, I will say it is the worst at times, so quick to take money but getting money back is a miracle! Everyone has had their fair share with financial aid and all of their problems, but aside from that morgan is a great school, campus isn't too large or small. The overall appearance of Morgan is increasing as time progresses, plenty of construction is going on and once everything is done I'm sure it will make you look at the university a little differently.
Overall Morgan State University is a promising school that is growing at a ridiculous rate. With a total student population of roughly 8,000 it is still considered a small school compared to other larger institutions. Although the area where the school is located might not be considered a college-town the administrators and local community builders are developing new ideas of how to involve the nearby community on a plan to expand the university and create a college-town atmosphere locally. The school spirit is solid especially around homecoming time and with the recent successes of the athletic teams(Football and Basketball) it is always an exciting spectacle to see how students celebrate and support the teams. The school is not portrayed well in the media due to controversial incidents such as students getting involved in illegal greek life practices, but occasionally the school is celebrated in the media as an institution that excels in the sciences and liberal arts. If students complain about a certain aspect of the university, then they are mostly likely talking about the administrators at the financial services department that handles the finances of all students. Every semester some students go through a dilemma of their schedules being dropped due to miscommunication about their state of financial standing, but eventually with persistence most students resolve their financial conflicts. I personally have not had many conflicts with funding my education, but if I experienced a need for financial assistance there were clear procedures and protocol that I saw available that can help assist my circumstance. As an electrical engineering major most of my time was spent in the engineering building where I ran tests and experiments in the labs as well as studied in the engineering library. My experiences at the school were very pleasant and I would recommend individuals who want to challenge themselves to attend Morgan State University.
I love being a Morgan Bear! I am from Brooklyn, New York; I have no family or friends in the Baltimore area so I was a little nervous about starting a campus life with people I did not know. My fear of starting a social life at college quickly changed as soon as I arrived at Morgan’s Access Program. The Access Program is a program that requires all incoming freshman to spend a week at the Morgan campus, this gave me the opportunity to meet counselors, friends, and it gave me a chance to learn the campus before school officially begun. I was a student who was used to attending small schools, Morgan is by far the biggest campus I have ever experienced, however, I am comfortable here. In the beginning it was a little intimidating but I realized campus isn’t that big after all! It’s not often that I see a face that I do not recognize.
What I love best about Morgan is the school pride and tradition. Students support the football games, basketball games, prep rally’s, convocations, homecoming, and every on campus party. What I love the least is the organization of records. I never personally had an issue with the records and registration, or financial aid offices but I know a lot of peers that have. It takes a great deal of effort and self-dedication to make sure all of your school records are in order; this may include waking up at 8am to make a phone call. If you are self-motivated about your academic career at Morgan, these things will not become a problem.
There are also numerous clubs and Greek life on campus to choose from. I am a model for Fashion at Morgan. I encourage anyone to get involved on campus; it just makes the college experience enjoyable!
My overall opinion of Morgan State University. Is it is what you make it. I keep reiterating this point because Morgan is in fact an HBCU and the experiences and friendships gain over your time here will be something you will never be able to get back. So if you spend most of your time dwelling on the negative you will never get a chance to receive any of the positive. The one thing I feel I would change about the school is the Financial Aid department. It's very unorganized, so stay on your toes and make your your money is processed and in your account on time or your schedule will be dropped. We have alot of Morgan pride, so once you graduate you will be a bear for life. Get to know your Professors and chairperson of your major departments. Joined an organization, Get active in campus life. Morgan State is the place where you will discover your true self. Just make sure it is what you like.
I love my school. We are our on "family". When people talk about Morgan State who do not go to Morgan I take pride in letting them know that Morgan is not ghetto, hood, or any of those negative things that people say. Like every school of course we have thing we could do better but the overall experience that I have gotten here I wouldn't trade for anything else. There is a lot of school pride here we know how to come together. Just last semester we had a sit in at the school library because we wanted the hours to be 24/7. We have the top engineering program in the state of Maryland and we give the most bachelor degrees to African Americans in the state of Maryland. We are expanding campus now and we just got done with renovations on the main yard. Morgan State University is beautiful!
Morgan State University is a very diverse and innovative school. Currently there is major planning and reconstruction happening on campus. Morgan State will be one of the most intriguing campuses in Maryland due to the new landscape and facilities being incorporated. As a music education major at Morgan State, I have the luxury of attending my academic classes such as physics, Spanish, and math while building my craft as a musician. The music classes here at Morgan prepare their students to educators and leaders while enhancing their academic knowledge. The one thing I'd change about Morgan State is the lack of meal varieties in the cafe. Students pay thousands of dollars and barely are able to consume the horrible meals they provide. Morgan State campus needs more variety of vegetarian and healthy places to eat such as Salad Works or Subway. The size of Morgan State is just right depending on your major, for example, if you stay on campus at Blount Towers and your an engineering major you may want to leave for class about 20 minutes before it starts due to the far distance the two are apart, but if you stay at Blount Towers and you’re a music major, the music building is right across the street. So depending on your major, the campus can either be too vast or just right. In my opinion, the Morgan State Band under the direction of Mr. Melvin Miles, is one of the most exciting, electrifying ensembles in Maryland so when I say I attend Morgan State University, people react with delight that I have the pleasure of being a part of such a great ensemble. The band travels all the time all around the east coast playing and marching to some of the greatest modern songs out today. If you don’t have a car and don’t enjoy taking public transportation like myself, you may be subject to staying on campus, but there’s a bus right in front of the dorms that goes downtown Baltimore where there’s plenty to do, such as the mall, movie theaters, and several shopping places. The Baltimore Harbor is a major city attraction located about 10 minutes from campus filled with tourist and many diners to enjoy. David Wilson, Morgan State’s current president is doing a tremendous job encouraging students and keeping up the legacy of former president Earl Richardson. The campus has recently added a PNC bank right in the student center and is currently awaiting the arrival of Auntie Ann’s pretzel shop all under the guidance of Dr. Wilson. Morgan State has a strict tolerance with their admittance. Students are required to maintain a 2.0 GPA and are offered tutoring and private instruction yearly. Our championship winning basketball team is the schools pride. “WE ARE THE BEARS” is our chant during games and pep rallies. The schools spirit is at a rise with sorority and fraternity involvement to build the moral on campus with “I Love Morgan Day”, and “Rep Your School Colors Day”. Although Morgan State is a top notch school, there are many things to improve that students complain about. The fraternities and sororities are serious about getting their “yard” back which is a way to broadcast their fraternity around campus such as tree painting and painted benches. The President is currently finding options to make the campus look organize and meet the Greeks request. Also students complain about the library not having enough computers that print especially during finals week. The one thing I look forward to every year at Morgan State is graduation. This is my last semester. I will be a college graduate in May 2012. The campus spirit during graduation is beautiful. Parents and friends all around campus enjoying themselves with smiles and laughter for their child’s success. Balloons and signs all around, “CONGRATS”, “GREAT JOB”. The thought of this day makes me fill with joy.
My overall opinion of Morgan State University is that we are a family-oriented school. The support system is amazing! We fall, stand, and unite together. Our small-knit community allows us to cross paths with many networking opportunities.
Starting answeringThe best thing about Morgan State University is that they provide students that are disadvantage a chance to better themselves into productive citizens. One thing I will change about Morgan State University is mostly the food quality, and the housing that they provide for students. Morgan State is also growing, and the current size of the campus is quite large right now and it’s only increasing. When I’m on I spend most of my time in class, considering I commute, and if I have any leisure time I’m usually in one of Morgan State university computer labs or library. Overall the administration of the university is great, but need more structure is all that they do, for example financial aid. Recent controversy on campus that has happened in recently, was the sit in, in the library where students wanted longer hours to study. One thing that is unusual about Morgan State University that not negative is that even though Morgan is a HBI it still competes and out beat other TWI in different undergraduate and doctorial programs. !
I LOVE MSU . There is not other school like it because not all schools are the same .
Your teachers ginuwinly care about your education and exahust all endevors to help you . this is a just right school and everyone is the backbone for someone else. We recently had some students who died during FA 2011 semester and everyone came together as a unit . Even the President , Dr. Wilson helped during the trying time . the student who died was considered my brother and everyone loved him.
There is alot of school pride, particulary during the homecoming and game seasons and even after. people come from all over the world to fellowship with Greek Lines , parade helpers and watchers , its really amazing
My opinion of this school has changed over the years. When I arrived for the first time, the campus was under critical construction on four major parts of the campus. At first I felt this process should have began years ago, but now I see how new students can benefit from the new materials, resources, and facilities. The school has about 7,000 students and can be walked from the most northern building to the most southern building in about 15 minutes. There is an abundance of school pride when it comes to involvement in sports and organizations, and they all work together to insure homecoming and major events are something for all to enjoy. This school is unique because it allows you to create your own unique education under certain guidelines of course. For example, I am and Electrical and Computer Engineer with a Minor in East Asian Studies. I have the ability to remain saturated in my technical field, while being exposed to a different way of living. The advisory staff at this institution truly motivate students to be innovative and promote diverse thinking. Overall, this school is great school to attend.
- The teachers care about you; especially in the engineering department.
- I would change the look to it, and make it more student friendly.
- I think Morgan state is just right.
- A lot of people don't know about Morgan, some have mix feels about the school.
- I spend most of my time in the dorm room.
- Baltimore is Morgan's location.
- The school administration is pretty helpful.
- Beyonce and jay z baby's name.
- There is a lot of school pride.
- Nothing unusual to me.
- When i first joined the ROTC program.
- Why does our schedule always get dropped.
my best opinion of this school is that, she has friendly teachers who are ready to work with you and make sure you graduate and become useful to the society and she gives a lot of scholarship opportunities to outstanding students
For a student I know that an important factor in deciding schools would be the staff. I want to say that there are staff at Morgan State University that love the students like their own, like family. The best thing about Morgan State University in the atmosphere for the students, also known as student life. It is great to know that there is always something going on whether that be educational of for recreation. It makes a student feel excited that they can go outside daily and meet new students that attend their school. Overall it is a great and safe time for all.
One thing that I would like to change is to bring more types of food items to the school. We already have a variety on the daily basis but bringing more popular types like chick-fil-a or chipotle, I believe that students and staff would have an increase of appreciation and joy.
Morgan State University is a school that is just right. There are enough students attending that you see a new face everyday. But there are also the right amount of people to where you will notice faces and see friends while you are walking to class or on campus.
When I tell people that I attend Morgan State University their impression is astounding. They either are very excited because they know of the school or have either attended or had family and friends attend. Another reaction is that they state that I go to a very nice school. They go on to say we have a great campus visually, great majors, and amazing faculty that work there. Lastly they remember the band, the sports, and the overall student activities that Morgan is known for.
There are many places that you can spend your time on campus. I would say that I spend a equal amount of time everywhere on campus; from classes, to the dorm room, friends rooms, the student center, outside, and the library. It all depends on a students goals and priorities to where and how long they will spend at each campus location.
There is a college town here near Morgan State University. We are located in the heart of Baltimore, Maryland. For that we are located 20 minutes away from the Harbor which is a great tourist destination and for students as well. There is a boardwalk, shops, restaurants, and other attractions. Also around Morgan State University we are near the Towson Mall, Towson Town Center, and White Marsh. These areas involve a mall, a movie theater, shopping stores, super markets, Walmart, and other activities and necessities for college students. There is also a College Town Shuttle that is available daily that picks students up from surrounding schools and takes them to these hot spots as well.
The administration at Morgan State University is based on community service. They are there to help you in any way you need. Many of the administration are open and friendly and end of becoming friends or parent like figures to many of the students. I know personally that there are a hand full of administration that I talk to weekly even during breaks.
As for school pride there is a lot of school pride from current students, future students, and the alumni. You will see many people attend sports events and other functions. The biggest display of school pride would be during homecoming and for I Love Morgan Week. Our school and alumni go through a lot to make these times memorable for all who attend.
I love Morgan State University it is a well known HBCU and if faculty sees that you are interested in work they will most definitely look out for you. One thing I'd change is our access to information compared to other schools surrounding us as well as transportation to places off campus (mall, grocery, etc) The student population is just right so you aren't just a number, professors will pay attention to your needs if you make them known. There's a lot of school pride and students who attend love their Morgan family and the lasting memories and experience they've had.
My overall opinion of the school is positive. The best thing about the school is the diverse student body, the level of difficulty to gain admission, and the student based organizations and clubs. one thing I would improve is the student and faculty relationships. This can be done by simply encouraging opportunities for networking.. The size of the university is just right, giving students just enough time to commute from class to class. When i tell people I attend Morgan State University they coveny a level of respect and pride.
The best thing about Morgan is the resources. If ever i have a question or i am unsure of anything there is someone who can help. The staff is kind and patient with students. If they cannot answer your question, they will point you in the direction of someone who can. One thing about Morgan that i would change is its required student body meetings. I think there should be a little more in place to make us feel more as a unit then as divided as it sometimes feels. the student body is just right. Classroom sizes are perfect and professors are always willing to help those in need. People are proud and ask many questions about Morgan once i tell them that i am a student there. They ask if i would recommend they attend, and i always do. When on campus i spend most of my time in the library or in the student center. Both amazing new facilities that have anything a student may need to be successful. There are other schools within 10 minutes of Morgan that we often have parties with. The biggest recent controversy on campus was the Death of former Mr. Morgan Julian Benson. He was in a drunk driving accident however, this tragic event was an eyeopener to many on campus. It bought the Morgan community together and a calm throughout the campus. At football and basketball games students those living on campus and commuters alike come out and support the bears. One experience from Morgan that i will never forget is my first homecoming. There were so many people from the community that came out to support the school its history and most importantly our football team! The most frequent student complaints are the hours of the campus canteen and the lack of stability with the wireless connection.
Morgan State is a large university but it is still small enough to where you get to meet a lot more people throughout your years on campus. Because the classes are smaller than most universities, it makes it easier to communicate with professors and classmates during the semester. The only thing I would like to see changed is some of the school participation at events and more funding. We do not have many food options to choose from.
My overall opinion of the school is that it has very very educated teachers, not only will you learn about the subject but you will learn about life. The things I have learned in this university go far beyond information in textbooks. Every teacher I've had has come with wisdom they've passed down to us. The school is not perfect though, when it comes to financial aid being a hassle and schedules being dropped for no certain reason it makes it difficult to focus on the good that comes with school. The students are divided by those who are into school activities,groups, and organizations, and those who are their to party and have fun. It is easy to fall into the wrong crowd if you are not strong minded and in school for the right reasons. The teachers in my department which is psychology are always available to talk and easy to confide in if you have a problem. Being at Morgan you have to do alot of growing up, the school will not hold your hand. You have to stay on top of making your schedule, financial aid, passing your classes, knowing how to get a override, etc. The schools location was another thing I didnt like because it was in balitimore city, its very busy not much of a college location. Though it is close to other colleges that have more of a college scenery, such as Towson University. Their is a mall, walmart, etc. on that side of town which is nomore then 10 mins away. The campus is beatiful and they are still improving the campus. You have to be aware of your surrendings at all times, the school has had many crimes reported, robbery being the main one, Like i said before the school is in Baltimore city. Overall I enjoy and love my school very much, mainly because of my professors and what I have learned about my own history going to a Historically Black University!
I feel that Morgan State is a wonderful university. My time at Morgan has allowed me to broaden my horizons on the way I live my life. If it was not for this institution, i would not have networked with the right people, nor would I have figured out a plan for me to live my way but in a successful manner. In my opinion, there are many good things about the school. It is really easy to make friends who can help you pass the times when you aren't in class. I also enjoy the marching band here. They play a lot of good music and are definitely an exciting thing to see. The school is actually a decent size. Whenever I'm on campus i usually can be found in the Murphy Fine Arts building. I stay in there because my major is music. The location of Morgan State is not in too bad of a spot for a "college town" . It is kind of in the center of anything fun to do. Getting anywhere from the university is just a matter of taking a 10-15 minute ride. The administration here is definitely one of a kind. The faculty is easy to get along with so its easy to take care of any situation that comes during your time at Morgan. One experience that I will never forget is my first day of school at Morgan State University. I met a lot of different individuals who shared some of the same goals as me and would help me find the building tools to get started on trying to find a career. One complaint that used to be a big thing was the parking system. Thanks to the new university President, Dr. David Wilson, this problem has been fixed.
When I first arrived at Morgan State University I was disappointed in the lack of resources and the poor state of some of the learning facilities. As I matriculated I learned that college and the experiences and knowledge you gain from it are completely up to you. It is what you make of it. Attending a Historically Black College gave me a since of pride and a little more knowledge about my race and ethnicity. I am glad i chose to attend Morgan State University.
Morgan State University is one of the top schools in the nation for producing African American Architecture and Engineering students. As an architecture major my main job is designing. All of my classes are my favorite because Architecture and Urban Design is my passion. Any opportunity I get to do those is a blessing. Morgan State offers my concentration with skilled professors in each subdivision of Architecture. No matter what class I am taking, it is not hard to find someone on staff that specializes in that subject. The teachers are overly educated and have no problem helping a student when asked to do so. Classes in Architecture often run over because there are so many people in the program that are passionate about it. History and Theory classes turn into detailed discussions of everyone's experiences and tastes, and studios turn into a mock architectural firm meeting. Every student is willing to help the next and professor are no exception. I love Morgan State University and the School of Architecture and Planning.
My overall opinion of Morgan State is that it is an exceptional University in more ways than one. The campus is not so big that you are a needle in a haystack, but it is also not so small that you run into the same person everyday. I can keep in touch with a small circle of friends and still manage to see a new person every week. The class sizes are perfect also. Being an architecture major, most of my classes are studio styles and some universities pack studios tight. Morgan State is not like that, we have intimate class settings where the professors and students all know each other. That alone, sold me on the school. Most of my time is spent in the studio on design projects, but I still make time to attend Student Organization events in the University Student Center. The most common complaint from the students is housing but Morgan is located in such a perfect position that there are plenty of reasonable apartment complexes within a safe distance of the school. Most housing companies cater to the students by keeping the cost of rent low and some even accept financial aid as a form of payment. Morgan State University was not my first choice of schools, but I definitely do not regret attending. It is an amazing institution that I am proud to be a part of.
The best thing about Morgan State University is that help is available at every corner and absolutely no student is left alone to struggle through their College experience. I spend most of my time in the Engineering Building on campus in an effort to stay ahead, especially with assignments.
Morgan State University is one of the best Universities in Maryland and I am proud to be a student of this institution.
I appreciate the effort and emphasis that is placed on students realizing their potential, performing a more vital role in society and having overall pride in themselves, and therefore, Morgan provides not just educational enrichment to students, but enrichment related to every facet of their being.
I love my HBCU!!! There are minute things that I would change such as the food, extended library hours, etc. But overall, I am quite please with my choice to attend Morgan State University. School pride is a major factor at MSU and its shown on a daily and consistent basis. MSU isn't too big or too small so you'll definitely get the "college experience" but you won't feel like you're being smoothered.
The administration's door is always open and if they can't solve a problem, they will take you to the person who can. MSU is literally a family because of how close everyone is.
When I tell people I attend MSU they have all kinds of "ooohhh" and "ahhhhhs."
My position on Morgan State University is that it is in a state of limbo. Morgan still relies on their past to try and secure their future. Morgan should focus on getting their administration and suportive positions in order. Their financial aid department is in dire need of some revamping. Morgan is a large school, but the class sizes are relatively small in comparison, I do get some flack about going to this school because I am white and a minority at the college. I spend all of my time while on campus in class. I do not have the luxury to stay at school any longer than neccesary. Morgan is next to a "college town", Towson, which has a variety of stores, restaurants and entertainment. I think the administration is personable. If I need to talk to the Dean of my major she is right in the same building as my classes. She even talks to me in the hall, knows my name and my situation. She is a great asset to Morgan. Controversy on campus is always with crime in and around campus, with robberies, mugging and drugs. School pride can be seen all around, everyday. People who attend campus proudly wear Morgan gear on a daily basis. I cannot come up with anything unusual about Morgan. I will always remember winning grand prize for my entry in my freshmen year, majors final project. Financial aid is always a topic of complaint. I almost didn't attend Morgan due to their lack of ability in the financial aid department to file my paperwork in a timely manor.
Overall, Morgan State University is a very fine institution.The best thing about this school is the many different opportunites that are basically thrown at students in all the different fields of study.Morgan has no shame in awarding excellence and uplifting the students who perform very well in their academics.There are too many scholarships to choose from. The campus size is large enough for each different department to have their own space, also it is small enough that students will not run out of breath going from class to class. When I tell people that I attend Morgan State I ususally get negative feedback because people are unfamiliar with the Baltimore area and decide that Historically Black Universities and Colleges(HBCU's) are not as great as other schools. I also thought so at first but quickly changed my mind as i got to know more about the school. The only thing I would change about Morgan State is the lack of school pride. I would love to see more people attend the football and basketball games and wear the school's color more often. A moment that I will never forget is when Barack Obama was the presidency in 2008, the whole school and surrounding community connected and celebrated that very historic moment in time. Although students complain about teachers and classes, I believe that professors only challenge students to reach their ultimate potential. Morgan State is constantly improving to better connect with their students and promote excellence and i believe that the school is a fine stepping stool for individuals to face the real world and would not change my experience for anything.
Morgan is a good school overall because it motivates students to work harder by rewarding not only students who are excelling (3.5-4.0) academically but also those who are doing good doing (3.0).
Morgan is the ONLY university that I know of which gives students Book Grants. You do not have to be in the Honors Program to receive the book grants, ANYONE can receive it as long as his/her GPA is a 3.0 or above. I Have been receiving not only the book grants but also tuition assistance from the honors program and I'm not even in it.
The campus buildings are not too far,the longest it will take for one to get to the furthest building is 10 minutes. So, it is very convenient.
Our New Student Center is beautiful and we have a PNC Bank in it and ATMs located throughout the campus.
Our ALL-GLASS New Library was voted #10 in the nation!!!!
Morgan also has an ESCORT service which is my favorite. I live in an off-campus housing so when it is dark and I need to get to the Library, I just call them and a Morgan Police Picks me up and takes me there and if I'm on campus and need to go back to my room, vice versa! AWESOME Security.
I can go on and on about Morgan but I will leave you with this, Morgan State Choir is the BEST in the State in classical music and in the past year we have been to Columbia, Russia and China. And we sang at the inauguration of President Barrack Obama. Great Engineering program and fraternities, sororities, athletics etc. You will definitely find an organization of interest!
What most people love about Morgan State is the focus on the black experience. Its classification as a historically black college transcends the curricular aspects, permeating the daily activities of students and staff, and making for a well-rouded, community feel on campus.
The fact that Morgan State is an HBCU by no means relegates its population to origins of a singular race. The university attracts students from all over the world, including countries like Nigeria, Kenya, Australia, China, and numerous islands of the West Indies.
The university is situated in a residential area. Local malls and shopping centers are a short distance away and are accessible by bus. The student population is between 7,000 - 8,000 of which most are commuter students. Most students rent rooms in shared houses around campus, or rent apartments in one of the apartment complexes around.
There is quite a lot of school pride. The annual homecoming events are always very well attended and feature returning alumni in big numbers. While there have been complaints in the past about the school's administration, the new president, David Wilson, has already done much to correct that, implementing new policies, and even beautifying the campus.
The best thing about Morgan is the diversity of people that you will meet. I would change the school so that everyone has more school spirit and is more willing to get involved.However as is, Morgan is still a great institution. It is surrounded by other colleges and universities and Baltimore is a very lively city!
Though so many the best thing about Morgan State University would have to be the relationships our professors allow students to build with them. Morgan's professors look at the students not as another number but as a student who is eager to progress in higher learning and the will work with you in order to get you where you need to be.
I would only change one thing about Morgan and that would be its regress with co ed housing, our university is slightly behind in this area.
In my opinion Morgan's Campus is just right in size. Any place you would need to go on campus is easily accesible, you could walk to any class or take our campus shuttle system that comes every 15-20 minutes.
People react differently when i tell them i attend Morgan State University, but all reactions are positive.
I spend most of my time at Morgan in the dorm building Blount Towers, I work here as a Resident Assistant. I also live in this building, it holds 750 women, has a research lab, as well as a computer lab. This building is directlt across from the dining hall, and very close to main campus, this makes it very easy to attend to everything i need here at Morgan.
My opinion on our administartion is that our administartive team led by Dr. Wilson, is an amazing effficient and effective team.
The amount of school pride on or campus is overwhelming, our university bleeds orange and blue. We are one big bear nation.
There is nothing unusual about Morgan other than its an open campus.
One experience I'll always remember at Morgan would have to be our "I love Morgan Day". Which is where our university acknowledges how much we love every part of our university.
Majority of the complaints that students have based around the campus being open and safety inregards to that.
Its definitely not a college town.
One thing I would change about my school would be the school's faculty that work in the financial aid office, registration office and Bursar office. The people who work in these offices are rude and they act as if they do not want to help you. When I tell people I go to my school they usually ask why I chose to go to such a mediocre university. There is not a lot of school pride. Something very unusual about the school is that even though its a HBCU, there is no unity amongst the students. The most frequent student complaints is about the staff in the financial aid office, bursar office, and registration office.
Morgan State University is a community characterized by the word diversity. If you are looking for a college that defies the word racism to a large extent, then Morgan is the place to be!
As a Morgan student, you can expect the essential one on one contact with your teachers that is missing from the so called 'big schools'.
The population is absolutely perfect and every student is proud to be a Morgan Bear.
I can say that I sincerely love Morgan. The best thing that I like about the school is the personal relationships that you can be developed with professors. This is mainly due to the small class sizes. I love that I can go to the professors office and get individualized help. Although it is an HBCU, you still encounter diversity. You meet people from all types of backgrounds, cities, cultures, and countries.
Morgan has recently gone under new leadership (new president). Under this new leadership the school in my opinion is rapidly improving and growing. There have been many changes already with an on-campus bank and landscaping improvements. The president is visible on campus and is very receptive to complaints and criticisms during town hall meetings.
One thing that I would change is the customer service that is displayed in some offices such as financial aid. I would also like to have more on campus food options. These sentiments have been brought up at town hall meetings and are being worked on.
The best thing about Morgan State is the various opportunites and experiences you will receive at Morgan. Morgan is a gateway to success! The faculty and staff at Morgan are dedicated to doing whatever it takes to see their students succeed. One thing i would change about Morgan is the open campus. I feel if the campus was more closed and private the students and staff would feel safer. I feel the size of Morgan is good. Many other universities have 20-30,000 students. Morgan has approx 7,000 which I feel is a good number. When I tell people i go to Morgan a lot of people's first words are "WOW". They recognize Morgan for its great worth. Most of time is spent in my room or the library, i try to catch up on studying and sleeping as much as i can. Morgan has a great amount of school pride!! at every game the cheerleaders,mascots and student body are there to cheer on our bears!!
The best thing about my Morgan State University is that it is very interactive and there are a lot of activities and organizations you can participate. You just have to stay active and be social. The one thing I would change is the classes that are offered each semester because it can hold students back from getting credits and seniors to graduate. When I tell people what school I go to they usually have bad reactions like "eewwww" and "sorry to hear that," or that we are a "party school." There may be a lot of parties thrown at Morgan, but you have the choice of going to parties or staying in and studying. Morgan is a better school than a lot of people give credit for. We are one of the top engineering school in America and we have a great communication program offered. There are a lot of other good majors offered too. I spend most of my time in the communications building because that is my major and I am an anchor for WMSUTV, the television station at the school. The school administration is great. They may mess up here and there when it comes to financial aid but they always will work with you until they get it right. The biggest controversy on campus was a robbery on campus. It is best that you always walk with a group of people at night because you never know what will happen. The school pride is growing and getting better each semester. This fall semester's pep rally was a full house and the basketball games are packed with faculty, staff and students as well. The most frequent student complaints have been about the construction going on on campus. This is a problem for students because not only do we have to listen to the noises all day, but we also have to take detours and different routes to classes that we usually do not have to do. Although it is annoying at times, the campus is turning out to look very nice.
My overall opinion of my school is that it is a great school if you know how to apply yourself and have the right motives. The best thing about Morgan State University is the students really make you feel safe and welcomed from day one starting with the Access Orientation Program. The students really make this school. Whenever there are controversial issues on campus you can rely on them to come together which really gives it a close knit community type of feel. The faculty in the dining areas help with that too and will ease the pain of missing homecooked meals. Another thing I find unique about Morgan State University is the location. Baltimore City has a shuttle bus service that is called the Collegetown shuttles that carries students, for free with a proper ID, to several colleges and other main locations in Baltimore. For an example Walmart, the mall, Chipotle, and popular shopping center. This really gives Baltimore a college town vibe along with the diverse discounts you get from local stores for being a college student.
Morgan like other universities and colleges does have its problems. Going through the financial aid process and dealing with the people over in the financial aid offices can be a hassle and start to feel like a class in itself. Also, when it comes to some weekends, campus can start to look like a ghost town somewhat because a lot of the student body are from nearby areas. Another thing that is not so good for me, being that I am a sports fan is that some of the games whether it is basketball or football can start to lack pride and attendance. That has begun to change in the last couple of years though so it hopefully will not be a problem that Morgan maintains in the years to come.
I like my school. I love the diverse things I have been able to experience here. Morgan State University has really helped me to mature and open my eyes towards a promising career.
I have great pride for Morgan State University. Not only because it is a black historical university, but there are many academic programs offered, undergrad and graduate degree programs and professors who care about your learning experience.
I would say the best thing about Morgan is the fact that no matter the size of your graduating class, you come to make a lot of friends and family within your time at Morgan. The entire campus is full of life and that family feel.
It’s funny when I tell people that I go to Morgan State University their reaction is usually a disapproving one. I usually just smile and ask them if they knew that Morgan State University has been included in a very elite group of colleges and universities around the country, named one of ‘America’s Best Colleges’ recently by Forbes Magazine. Listed among the top quarter of the nation’s colleges and universities, Morgan also ranked among the ten best historically black colleges and universities. Or that Morgan State University is ranked among the top 25 best Colleges and Universities for Hispanics and Women by Hispanic Network, Professional Woman, and African American Magazines. Or that Morgan ranks #18 in the Historically Black Colleges and Universities ranking.
Their response is usually "oh, no...I didn’t know that"
Morgan is a school full of activities and school pride. There is always something going-on on campus whether it is a sporting event or a Theatre show...you will never find yourself with nothing to do.
I love Morgan, but if I could change one thing it would probably be more food options on campus...but that is what delivery is for, right?

I absolutely love attending Morgan State University. As a transfer student, I was looking for a school that promoted "activity", and oh did I find it at Morgan! Not only is enrollment in organizations promoted, but encouraged.
Our administration is another reason why I love Morgan. Under our new president, he is not only looking to uplift and empower the students, but looking to change the overall perception of Morgan in Maryland and throughout the world. What does this mean for us? It means that when we graduate, our degree will be revered by the likes of both Howard (and HBCU) and Harvard University's alike. The admin is really working for us!
The walk from building to building is relatively short, and unlike other colleges I've seen, there are places to shop, eat or vend across campus. Baltimore's Inner Harbor is a short drive away so Morgan's proximity to everything is great.
It is a HBCU college, i would change the fact that they dont have soccer as a school sport, it is just right, they react normal when i ask them to go to the school. Yes I do spend most of my time on campus, The school administration is average to me. No recent controversies for me. Yes there is a lot of school pride. The parties is something unusual about the school. The Most frequents student complains is the the school canteen food, and the fact we don't have a soccer team for Males by Mostly African males.
My overall opinion of my school is that we need more protection and security cameras on campus.
Morgan State University is an accredited HBCU that offer many opportunities to current and prospective students. Morgan State University is just right to start your higher educational goals. The campus is very huge that i sometimes don't know where to spend my time. The library is the best area to study, the student center is the best place to relax by watching a good movie at the theater every hour or by buying some foods at the cafeteria when i am hungry. Most often, i relax at the lounge of the business school by studying or taking a nap. Overall Morgan State University is the place where you can meet people with different backgrounds due to its huge diversity. Being a student at Morgan State University open wonderful doors to my educational goals and i am succeeding in every step i have taken so far. Morgan State University is like a family to me with the wonderful professor and staffs.
Morgan State is known for excelling in not only sports, but academics as well. The beautiful campus is about 20 minutes from the inner harbor. The best thing about Morgan state are the people and the since of pride that Morgan bears feel when we have home games. The feeling is comparable to being at Oriole’s baseball game with all of your friends and family there. I spend most of my on campus in the engineering building and murphy’s fine arts building. These two buildings give Morgan its name. Morgan state is well known for its engineering program and for its renowned classical choir. Most people perceive the school as being just a simple black college or a ghetto college in the hood. It’s actually more refined than people think. In order to get the best of out of any school, including Morgan state, one must stay optimistic and open minded.
The experiences you can gain from the Morgan State University is definitely what the student makes it. Some students will have a ton of complaints about Morgan but often those are the students that had a perfect "media condensed" view of how college should be.
Students at Morgan State will often say things like. "I thought Morgan would look like "Stomp the Yard". This statement can be true. If a student comes to school and makes changes to their university instead of just letting what they don't like survive on campus then of course that student will not like that university. As a student at Morgan State, you definitely have to be the change you want to see.
A change that is not in reach of the student is the administration. The administration in the financial aid office is one that has been complained about for many years but no change has come. This is the only thing I will change about Morgan and also the surrounding community of Morgan is not the greatest. Crime, especially robberies occur much more then I would expect but I believe this is due to a lack of security and a open campus. Campus police are not prevalent on campus and Morgan is a open- campus. This should require a much larger staff of Morgan State police but it obviously does not. The surrounding community of Morgan is not the greatest but it does have it's perks.
The elder people of the surrounding community often express how glad they are of the students. They will stop a student and give them words of encouragement such as "you are our future". This really makes the students have a sense of accomplishment and prestige within the community.
The sense of prestige the students gain attributes to the orange and blue pride. The students at Morgan State University have a great sense of pride. "Bleed orange and blue" is a statement that highly regarded in the Morgan community. Also the fight song can often spring out randomly at Morgan events.
Morgan can be a great school. Many of the students know one another so there is a high level of unity with in the Morgan State community. This portrayed well when Barack Obama was elected president.
All students where outside until about two or three in the morning having a great time. There was music being played, students where just happy and excited. The election of President Obama really made the Morgan community, along with other predominantly black communities feel like we accomplished something as a whole, together with unity. November 4, 2008 was the most memorable experience i will live with forever from Morgan State University.
All in all Morgan State is what you make. The campus is not just beautiful to look at, it is also a beautiful community based on pride that can offer a great experience to a diverse group of students.
My overall opinion of Morgan State is that though there are something's that can be improved the the overrides the bad. For instance we have great staff and administration. The people try to be as helpful as they can and some even bend over backward just to see that you are taken care of. Also the teachers know you by name and always answer your questions as many times as you need whether during office hours or via email. The food I'd tasty and affordable, and the students are accepting and fun. On the down side, the organization and timeliness of the help isn't always up to par when it comes to the offices and there has been a conterversy about crime on campus. If I could change one thing it would be to make Morgan State a closed campus. By doing this it would lower the crime rate making our campus safer.
