Student Author OverviewWhat's This?
Howard is not diverse in the traditional sense, simply due to the fact that it is a Historically Black University. But with that said, it is, in fact, "diverse." With students hailing from all parts of the nation, each student has a different outlook and perspective to bring to the classroom and dorm room. The university is a melting pot for not only the country but the world. With a wide array of international students, you are bound to meet people from West India to South Africa. The cultures and traditions of the varying areas bring in unique dialects, accents, and mannerisms, allowing for Howard students to teach other students as well. Many lessons gained from the Howard University are brought on by experiences. With every student you encounter, there is a new opportunity for a new lesson.
Even with the different cultures, religions, and races, Howard students have one shared commonality, and that is that we are all Bison. We, as Howard University students, all face the same trials and tribulations. We have all stood in line at the A-Building, waited on the phone for financial aid, and suffered from mosquito bites on the Yard. No matter where you come from, once you enroll and walk up "The Hilltop" you have now become a Howard student, an official Bison. Once you are a Bison, you are placed in a legacy of students implementing change and working toward success. You are now a part of Howard University's ever-growing family.
