4 College Freshman

Scholarships: They help me at every step, with FAFSA, scholarship and Grants. My tip would be to keep your school financial aid informed of what you want.

Computers: computers are good.. no color printing. they charge you to make copies.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Shaw will fine you for anything. You get a fine for cursing. You get a fine for smoking outside of the smoking area. You get a fine for smoking in the dorm. You get a fine for your room not being clean (that includes not making your bed). You get a fine for having an argument. and plus NO VISITATION

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Shaws academics are great.. Small class sizes. Register early tho cause they be full quick !

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Im a mass comm student. The department is great. Although the facilities could be better and more expansive.. Shaw does what it can.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Raleigh weather be switching up quick from day to day.. But if it snows CLASSES CANCELLED

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Shaw gave me little to no financial aid. No grants.. no scholarships.. But 2 measly loans. $24,000? All they covered was $5000

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: There are no campus shuttles.. campus is small. Public buses are $1 one way. And $2 for a day pass which is extremely reasonable.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Being that its an HBCU obviously its majority black.. But there are some foreign students who are clearly here on scholarship to play sports.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks are cool.. you see them on campus often. They don't act snobbish at all.

2 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilities at shaw are old.. There are almost no newly built buildings. Most of them few buildings we have were built in the 1800s when the school was founded.

2 College Sophomore

Facilities: Athletic center? Shaws gym is smaller than a high school gym. Students aren't allowed to use the workout room. Its strictly for athletes. We don't even have a football field..

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: its iight.. it truly is what you make it. you can either spend 4 years complaining about shaw or 4 years finding whats there is to be happy about when it comes to shaw..

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Shaw is right by downtown Raleigh.. there's always street fairs and events happening there. That's also where all the off campus food places are.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Girls and guys are fiending for some visitation man.. Shaw is slacking. Nobody came to college to feel like they're still at home with their parents. Shaw does a good job with playing the "parent" role.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Security does what they can.. which is close to nothing. They are not ever there when stuff is really going down. But they are there when they feel like bothering people. Most of them are old.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: living off campus is a great experience and gives you the independence that youve may have longed for

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: students on campus usually smoke everyday and its noticeable and i dont think its even acknowledged

3 College Sophomore

Parking: sometimes there's parking sometimes there isnt
