Student Author OverviewWhat's This?
At Howard, the best existing facilities are probably the libraries, the cafeterias, the student center, the science labs and departments, the athletic department, and the business school. This is due mostly to the fact that these buildings and facilities are either fairly new in comparison to some of the other buildings that were built as early as 1867, have been renovated, or had new components added as of late. Generally, all the facilities on campus are well-maintained, and much of campus receives high praise from students. However, there are some classrooms in some of the more sparsely populated departments—like English and history—that are in less-than-ideal condition. Even though no one can say whether this is because of an oversight on the part of the administration or a matter of priorities, the fact still remains that there is a definite disparity between the condition of some departments over others at Howard.
There is an abundance and variety of dining facilities on and around the campus. Also, there are a few charming campus cafeterias, as well as several independent food vendors sprinkled around in strategic spots, as well as the national and international restaurant options that you would expect to find in any major city.
