4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far my time at Hampton has been a learning experience socially. I feel like the social realm here is in the shape of a bubble with one box in the middle of it; thus, if you don't fit in that box then you might not fit in as well. However, the people are very friendly - you just have to be willing to seek out who your real friends are. Further more, some things at Hampton are malfunctioning for too long. Such as, the internet, its weak in many areas and the bandwidth is too small.

Overall Experience: If I had the choice of applying to Hampton University again I would because unlike other schools, Hampton embraces everyone and the people there try their hardest to make sure everyone feels at home. Last year as a freshman, I felt as if Hampton was my home away from home.

Athletics: Student support to games isn't as good as it could be. The teams are relatively decent, school spirit is good, just seems people come out when it's convenient

Overall Experience: I feel that so far, my experience has been okay. I wish things could have been a little different, and tuition wasn't so horrendous. But overall, the experience so far is neutral.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have only been at Hampton for one semester, however I have heard of different job fairs and internships, available for students to take advantage of. From what I hear these are all put in place to set you up for long term success in the path which you have chosen. As an African-American woman, Having grown up as a minority I appreciate being surrounded by people of color. Another thing I value about the school is how they give African Americans the tools that they need to be able to be as successful in any work environment. It's extremely important to me that I graduate from this school.

Health & Safety: When I first came to the school, a meeting was held to address this matter. There are different programs and many different places you can go to for support.

Campus Housing: The dorms are kind of old, which is to be expected given that it's a HBCU. There are also apartments across the street, which is very convenient.

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!
