Health & Safety: With living in a fairly busy city it's somewhat hard to control what goes on in and around campus. You can prevent everything but if you keep an open eye out you will be fine.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek Life at Howard is pretty historical. 5 out of the 9 NPHC fraternities and sororities were founded on the campus of Howard University. Who wouldn't want to be Alpha Chapter?

Transportation: Besides the transportation that the University uses there are a plethora of other transportation options for students to utilize. There is Zipcar, SmartCar, Car2go, Metrobus, Uber, Lyft, Taxis and the list can go on and on.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is never going to give you exactly what you want but considering the living costs in the city it is a definite must if you are trying to save money.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Being in DC you meet people from all over the world and when they all come together in a place as small as the District you are bound to fine something of your liking.

Scholarships: There are quite a few scholarships here at Howard, however the process in which you must apply for them and receive your aid is quite extensive sometimes.

Local Atmosphere: Whether you want to go see a movie in Chinatown or experience a new cuisine you can do so ANYWHERE in the city. Even if you are on a budget you can still have a great time by going to one of the many free museums and taking a look at their current exhibits or even attending a networking event at a local lounge.

4 College Junior

Majors: The internships in the city are great! Most students come out with a paid internship that essentially offers them full time job opportunities following the conclusion of their internship program. Howard breeds greatness and organizations and corporations are aware of this.

Students are more than satisfied with the quality of education that they are receiving at Howard. Students seem to have no trouble meshing with their peers, as well as the faculty. In fact, the only qualm that students seem to have is experiencing the difficulties of dealing with HU administration. The bureaucracy and red tape involved with getting anything done at the administrative level is nothing short of nerve racking, and the race to ensure that your financial aid is administered on time and paperwork properly entered into the system is probably more effective for rapid weight loss than any weight loss program currently being advertised. But even with all the little frustrations that come with dealing with the administration, there is a firm consensus among the students that there is no better place for them to be than where they are now. From the quality of the relationships they have formed to the quality of the education that they are receiving, as well as the numerous opportunities made available to them, HU students are pretty darn happy. Overall, Howard provides the ideal atmosphere for anyone who's interested in politics or pursuing a career that's in any way relevant to the process of developing public policy.

Howard is often referred to as the mecca, or the center of every Historically Black College or University in the nation, and the unified pride that the students have in its history and what it represents is very real and very substantial. While there's no denying that there is room for improvement on many levels, the important thing is that Howard University is expanding on the good and improving on the not-so-good-constantly striving to become better with each passing year. More importantly, most students feel like they can be a valuable, contributing part of this process.
