College Freshman

Majors: I haven't had an internship as of yet. I will update my response once I do participate in an internship

4 College Freshman

Majors: The 5-Year MBA program is an excellent program. Interaction plays a big role in the activities that we participate in, and even though for some people it's awkward, it makes the learning experience that much better, and brings everbody closer together through the course of the semester.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: It's not hard at all to be accepted here at Hampton. You're considered family as soon as you make a friend, and will realize that you'll be treated that way the entire time you're here.

Weather: I'm from San Diego, CA. With that said, I can't stand cold weather at all. It's such a pain, literally, especially when I have to walk in the snow on an extremely icy sidewalk.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It's no secret that in college, people are going to drink and smoke, so let's not act like that's new news. It's not an extremely noticeable trend, but there have been some situations where you can easily tell who takes part in certain drugs.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial Aid was a somewhat difficult situation. A piece of advise, always do it as early as possible! Otherwise, even if you do manage to receive financial aid, you'll run into some problems along the way, and it's such an annoyance that it's better to do it ASAP & be relaxed.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Hampton is a somewhat peaceful area to live, but it's very empty place compared to San Diego, where I'm from. I'm not a big fan of the weather, and the traffic is annoying on a daily basis.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've never had a problem walking across campus late at night. If you tend to constantly be out late alot studying, or working on long term assignments, then you will not have to worry about someone hurting you while you're on your way back to your dorm. Hampton has excellent 24 hour security, and nobody has ever been hurt by non-students on campus.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone loves to be involved with athletics here at Hampton. Basketball and football games are never empty, In fact, you'll be able to hear cheers, and music from your dorm room.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is very costly, but it's amazing how social our class is. Whether it's at parties, or the freshman ball, or events that the school holds during the week, there's always a way to interact, and everybody is extremely friendly here. Hampton's definitely got one of the best social atmospheres I've ever seen.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many late night options to enjoy, especially when you're out studying late. Pizza Hut, Subway, Wing Zone, and multiple chinese food restaurants. The harbors shopping center holds a few options that're easy to reach. In fact, they are right across the street from the campus. Other food options are either right across the bridge, or you can call for a delivery. It's very easy to find a place to get food no matter what time of day.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Its not many but for the few that are here is good

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: life on campus is very strict and boring at times

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greeks here are seen everywhere

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I really don't know about the cost but there are many places to go to live off campus

3 College Freshman

Weather: Weather out here is so bipolar. One its nice, warm and pretty and the next it is freezing, windy and raining

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Everyone here travels by anything to get home and back. The megabus is used the most

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Visitation is very bad on campus

3 College Freshman

Computers: At moments it is hard to use because it may be crowded in the library.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: On the weekdays it is pretty boring but some weekends are live.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Really isn't much because of the no tolerance here. If you are caught, you are dismissed from the school.

3 College Freshman

Majors: It wasn't hard getting into.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I enjoy it. There is nothing much to my major, just following the curriculum,

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It showed up on my account but had to find out remaining balance to pay on my own.

Hampton University requires an acquired patience and has issues you would probably not endure at another university. The financial aid mix-ups, runaround, and the registrar's office's inability to provide answers can make any Hamptonian want to pack their bags and transfer elsewhere. The crazy weather, poor transportation and parking, and the never-ending hunt for something to do at night, while frustrating, can also lead to some interesting memories and experiences. It can even make for a good story or two. On the other hand, the educational experience students receive is one of the best in the HBCU system, full of inspirational teachers and awesome classes. The friends you make and relationships you build at Hampton make any student or alumni proud to live out a Hampton University experience. Many meet their lifetime mates either while attending Hampton or by meeting a Hampton alumni later in life at a job or other event. Hampton students and alumni are everywhere and can tell you about the good times and bad times they spent at the University. The HU experience is definitely one-of-a-kind. At Hampton, you come in with the feeling that this is going to be the best experience of your life, when in actuality, it has become a lesson of choice and decisions, yet not regretted. The campus scenery will entice you, the academics will challenge you, the student body will enthrall you, and everything else will, without doubt, fall into place. The college experience is, in the long run, what you make of it. And at Hampton, you'll have the opportunity to make it everything you could possibly hope for and more!
