Party Scene: I wish there were more stuff to do around the city

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It could be better if the police would stop ending parties over BS. Not the best, but the most parties take place in the Harbors and some in the Heritage. The party scene could be better. But Hampton is just very strict when it comes to a lot of things!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: A great school for academics

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: I mean come on, it's a HBCU, it wont be that diverse-- what'd you expect?

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I mean it's pretty obvious. All colleges/universities/schools have some form of drug use/alcohol use going on everyday!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I wish the class sizes were bigger. Also, most teachers/professors are nice and encouraging and helpful! The want to see you succeed.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Hampton University is one of the best schools for jobs after college. Hampton University produces a lot of famous people, business people, CEO's/C-suite people, etc. We have a career fair a semester, and from what I've seen and heard, is that business love Hampton Alum and students who attend HU.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is okay. They need to make improvements to the housing also. I was in an honors dorm, Kennedy Hall, and all the rooms were smaller than any other dorms on campus. Also there are no computer labs or anything in the dorm lobbies, like you would see at most college campuses. Housing is also expensive! More than 11,000 a year for room and board.. that's crazy! The also should just renovate and build new dorms. Hampton University should build building up, rather than out. There will be more space if you build up, but they don't want to tear down any buildings, because of the historicness of them! SMH.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Well, we just had a whole bunch of people cross last year for the first time in a couple years. There are no Greek housing available at all. Some people say that many of the Greeks weren't anybody or nothing until they pledged.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: As an athlete, I feel like they should make some improvements for the field, courts and track for all teams. I feel as if the weight room should accommodate a better variety of things and for it to be bigger or for us to have more than 1. It's sad that the football players do not have names on the back of their jerseys but the lacrosse team just became a D1 sport last year and they had names on their jersey. I just feel like overall there needs to be major improvements for Athletics (Locker rooms, facilities, gyms, field for the throwers, etc.)

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!
