3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I wish they would do more renovations and update the rooms, making them bigger;

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: They take pride in what they do, and do great work around campus.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at my school is very proactive. They are a big part of campus life and they all work well as a team.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I honestly love my school . The environment and positivity that is in the air . Being around individuals that are reaching for their best and people who set goals for themselves . My best experience would be pre college due to the fact that it actually prepared me for the incoming semester , I got a taste of the college environment which made me feel more comfortable once o returned in the fall .

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is important to talk to upperclassmen in order to make sure that you get good teachers. There are some really bad teachers and you want to make sure that you do not get them as a teacher.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are plenty of Jobs offered to graduates from Hampton. The alumni are also very supportive to graduates and offer plenty of opportunity.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is a health center on campus but many people are afraid to go when they need to because they do not want to get sent home.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are not as many housing options for males as there are for females. The housing is okay. Because all of the buildings are really old they are not very high in quality, but they are decent and clean.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Divine 9 are as well as the music Greeks are quite popular on the campus. The attitude towards the Greeks varies with each organization. Some are more known for more positive things while others are known for more negative. There is no pressure to join, but joining does put your name out there.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The students are not very supportive. I wish that they had more team spirit.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Hampton is what you make of it. There are a lot of areas where it can be improved, many of the buildings need to be renovated, the Wi-Fi is not great, and the offices tend to give students the runaround, but if you get involved and meet people you grow to love it. Those who you make connections with become your family and the alumni are extremely supportive.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall I am extremely happy with the school and am happy to be a pirate!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Almost everyone I know has a job after graduation, and the school makes sure that everyone has great opportunities. Also having a Hampton degree means a lot in the business world

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus and the school takes sexual assault very seriously. They have lots of forums and make sure we are all educated on the issue.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is not horrible depending on the place you choose to live, but the rooms do tend to be on the smaller side.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: They are very community involved and throw some of the best parties.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports team are okay, but games are much like high school games and don't have a lot of student support.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the family vibe and smallness of my campus. Everyone knows one another and is really close. I also love the fact that some teachers are so willing to help. There are so many things to join and lots of fun activities to be involved in.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life at my school is nice. The Greeks at my school are actually nice. We don't have Greek housing at my school, we just have apartments for anybody who wants to live there. Some non-Greeks I know, don't really like Greeks, because they feel like just because their a Greek they're higher than a non-Greek.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Hampton has its own police force that has been trained to make arrests on behalf of the state of Virginia. So there's that.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Courses are ok. You have to find the right professors though.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The alumni that come from this school are really strong and active in giving back. This is how some of our newer facilities are being built and funded.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: On campus living is subpar in my opinion. The rooms are small, not really any advantages to living on-campus when there's an apartment complex right across the street.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The greeks here almost run the school. If you're not greek, you're still important, but you won't get as much attention.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports here are important to some people. It's really hit or miss for most people. Football team is just average and when it gets really cold and windy in the fall and winter months people tend to not go to the games as much. BUt the basketball team, both men and womens, are former MEAC champions, so people almost always go to the games.

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!
