3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Some of the nicer places are more expensive but they seem nice.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Hampton is strict so trying to find a fun party that is not shut down is difficult.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus is okay there is some variety but a car is must to get there.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Administration is very strict it is very difficult to get away with anything. There is a curfew for freshmen and in-room visitation is strict as well.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Hampton will give scholarships but only to incoming freshmen and transfers. Scholarships are very difficult to keep and once they are gone you will not be able to get them back.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Unless you have a car food around the campus is kind of a hit or miss. Wing Zone is expensive and the service id terrible and after a while Chik Fil A gets tiring.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Hampton University is a wonderful Home By The Sea. Not all the dorms are the best but all faculty members want what is best for their students. Hampton does its best to keep its students safe and ready to enter the work force!

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life affects the social atmosphere pretty heavily.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Hampton doesn't have a lot of school spirit compared to other schools, but is something they are trying to improve.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is better than on-campus housing because you have freedom and are not under Hampton's rules.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: You can always find a party going on in the Harbors, but they it is guarantee that the police will shut it down. Most of the parties are fun and the best ones happen during homecoming.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is plenty of options for off-campus restaurants and there is a variety of places to eat at too.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The school's policies are very strict and they are very traditional, but it's only the best interest of the students to make sure everyone stays safe.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Trying to get of hold of someone from financial aid is very hard when trying to call and they do not return back phone calls or emails.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The cafe's food is not great quality. I personally think the best food they offer is the pasta line. Also, the cafe often runs out of plates and cups so we have to use plastic ones instead. The cafe could stay open longer too.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus isn't too bad, but their is a lot that could be improved. Most of the dorms are very old and they need to be renovated. I would suggest there be study rooms on very floor and a game room in the dorms too. The social atmosphere is good. The RAs typically plan events in the dorm for bonding.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most time people try to stay in the harbors and some people stay some other places, but those people are natives to the area. I'm a native but I don't commute.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I haven't been to a harbors party but I always get invites and hear that there fun. On the other hand I have been to the campus sponsored parties and there pretty fun.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: We have wing zone, golden city, subway and tropical smoothie the other places require a delivery to get to. However, the eateries have pretty good food.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Some dorms are strict and some are not. That's good and bad because some dorms don't give the students breathing room and some dorms let students do whatever.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: The campus run around and I have some really good grades and barely have any financial aid from the university.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The cafeteria has it's days but sometimes it's best to order food.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I know Hampton is trying to preserve it's history but alot the buildings are severely outdated. The social atmosphere is great for parties but im not much of a party person anymore.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football is bad but they always advertise them

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: you get what you can

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors
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!
