3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: No help with housing but i sstay with my parents so.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: financial aid does it come in till later in the month so that means I still don't have enough money for college which I have to wait for financial aid to come in.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It a lot of money to stay there and if don't have it by a deadline they will kick people out.

and will take out $500 because you didn't register for your classes which you did so they will deduct that money out of your account,cancel all of your classes because you don't have enough money and they didn't tell you that at first.

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!
