Overall Experience: I attended the school for it's summer Precollege Program and my stay was absolutely the best! I stayed for six weeks and took a series of three courses. I received A's in all the courses, met my professors, and was able to get a feel for the campus. It was the best experience of my life!

Overall Experience: I love how my school is right on the water. We call it our home by the se. No other schools will have a view such as ours. It brings a lot of privileges to our school as well, such as the ability to have a sibling class.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Hampton University has helped me evolve into a more well rounded and cultured individual. I take great pride in my heritage and it is great to go to a school with people who look like me, are smart and have similar goal for success. I have met life long friends and have built connections that many of my high school friends that attend PWI have not. I have made arguably, the best decision of my life by attending this school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I found being at Hampton University was a great experience for me. I learned a lot as a college student dealing with social, financial, and academic aspects. I believe my first year was definitely a testing ground. It gave me a chance to review things I need change as a student and what I need to improve as a student.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Hampton is what you make it. You have to be social and network or you will not get the best of your college experience. There's alot of activties to involve yourself in. The class size is great for me, about 30 students. It's truly my home away from home.

Campus Housing: Living on campus isn't too bad because of the family atmosphere but the buildings definitely need some upgrading. The faculty is nice and the students are friendly for the most part. Refrigerators aren't allowed in the dorms but they make sure to have one per floor to share. All dorms are single gender with the exception of one.

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!
