Shaw University needs improvements all around. From the financial aid to professors, and to facilities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Shaw University is becoming a slow process and can use some improvements, the teachers could be more engaged and the school could care about their students more instead of just extorting money. Another thing Shaw can use some improvements has far as food and the dorm life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Shaw University is that it is a well rounded HBCU, the school works very hard to make sure all students have what they need, SGA does very well to not only make sure it is a great learning environment for students but also a fun environment that we can be comfortable in while we’re away from home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Shaw Univeraity is a wonder historica black college university. The staff are amazing and test students with respect. The food could be better and I hope to receive quarter machines for our laundry soon.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Shaw is the school or you if you want a small class room setting and to feel more at home. The only issue I had when first looking into it was the freshman dorms but as I visited other colleges all freshman dorms wee the least attractive. The campus staff and family are rally welcoming tho.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I honestly have enjoyed being at Shaw University. While being at Shaw I had the opportunity to become a member of the Beta Rho chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc and I am now the 2018-2019 Miss. Shaw University. I went into Shaw with an open mind set. I am always ready to learn and better myself and campus with my other peers that are involved in campus activities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Shaw University could be a great school if they better their housing, food, and financial aid. I attended for 1 year it felt more like high school again wasn’t much to get out and do on campus, I feel as if they should have more activities and opportunities for the students. I would love to go back but with the financial office I can’t!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel as if my University has the potential to be one of the greatest HBCUs. There is a need to enhance the political science department. The University should receive more funding towards infrastructure and beautification, it will boost retention rates.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Shaw University is a baptist based campus and is also a campus open to the public. Many of the students at Shaw are involved in either sports or have no involvement at all. Most students have either a job or in work study to help them through college. The housing on campus is alright, there are lower classmen dorms and upperclassmen dorms. Dorms can sometimes be either hot or cold and the bathrooms are a community. The food on campus is not always the best but the luckily we are centered in the middle of downtown so there is always something new to try or somewhere new to go. While being a current college student, most struggles in college come from procrastination and lacking sleep sometimes trying to make up work. The campus can sometimes be a great place to be and other times the campus is boring and nobody might be here. A lot of in-state students go here and many different cultures are involved​ around campus. Shaw campus is like a hit or miss sometimes.
