Athletics: Do not come here and expect a spectacular football or basketball team! Same applies to the other sports.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Howard students and faculty together as a whole supports and assist one another to ensure that everyone remains safe on campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, the this school is excellent. I would not choose any other school. Once you arrive, you will get the feeling that you are suppose to be here and carry out Howard's history of excellence. The professor at this school want to see you excel and are willing to support you if and only if you put in the effort. As you become more concentrated in your major the class size will go down. The only classes that are large is the Arts and Sciences classes. Other classes are relatively small in size.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Howard is known for their great connections. At least one major corporation is here each day to recruit, talk to students, or observe. Students who are in the School of Business are more than likely guaranteed to get a job out of college.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Howard has recently opened up two new dorms. College Hall North is for freshmen girls and College Hall South is a co-ed dorm for sophmores. It is very spacious and up to date. People who reside in these dorms has one roommate, a single bathroom, large closet space, under bed storage, a sink, and a medicine cabinet.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greeks play a huge role on campus. In terms, of academically and socially they are very active and encourages other students outside of their organization.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic department is relatively okay on campus. This school is not heavy into sports.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Howard University is unique because I am able to learn from people who look just like me. This prestigious historically black culture offers diversity, opportunities, and valuable experiences which is very rare. I have learned so much within my first year that no other school could have offered me.

Drug Safety: you don't see drug activity unless you're at a party or out late at night.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Sexual Assault crimes are present on our campus. We have emergency blue lights on our campus that don't work.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most classes have been amazing. My favorite class was African Diaspora two, it was an amazing experience. Professors teaching styles most of the time are helpful & resourceful. It's always a good idea to ask around about professors before picking them.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are always a lot of career fairs & different companies on campus visiting the specific schools.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The physicality of the dorms are amazing but the strict rules enforced are a bit much. We aren't allowed to open our windows, can't have microwaves or anything to cook food with, never have visitation. ..

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greeks always try to throw parties to get to know people, it's a big part of our campus.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The teams are good but there is always a problem with the attendance to sporting events. You always need a ticket & most of the time they run out before you can get one.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Administration & Registration are both difficult to deal with but on the other hand what makes the school great are the amazing courses that are offered & the union among the students.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: There is many organizations and clubs for a variety of different religions, political beliefs, and we have CASCADE which is our LGBTQ organization.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Recently, there has been some sexual assaults that have taken place on campus that could create concern. I have not personally experience any violence on campus though. Even during big events, we rarely have fights. Campus Police are a little too pressed sometimes and especially when it's not even a serious situation to be pressed over.

5 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Howard University is big on Greek Life. It is where 6 out of the Divine 9 Black Fraternity and Sororities were founded. I think there are definitely mixed views on Greeks coming from the Non-Greeks. Some view them as being no work and all party and others recognize the many great things they do for the Howard University community and beyond into DC. There are many of the orgs that have their own house and they are all fairly close to campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Athletics at Howard University could be a lot better but it also could be a lot worse.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus police needs to get it together. ResLife is quick to throw someone out for drugs or alcohol but a rape is swept under the rug and ignored.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students are more than satisfied with the quality of education that they are receiving at Howard. Students seem to have no trouble meshing with their peers, as well as the faculty. In fact, the only qualm that students seem to have is experiencing the difficulties of dealing with HU administration. The bureaucracy and red tape involved with getting anything done at the administrative level is nothing short of nerve racking, and the race to ensure that your financial aid is administered on time and paperwork properly entered into the system is probably more effective for rapid weight loss than any weight loss program currently being advertised. But even with all the little frustrations that come with dealing with the administration, there is a firm consensus among the students that there is no better place for them to be than where they are now. From the quality of the relationships they have formed to the quality of the education that they are receiving, as well as the numerous opportunities made available to them, HU students are pretty darn happy. Overall, Howard provides the ideal atmosphere for anyone who's interested in politics or pursuing a career that's in any way relevant to the process of developing public policy.

Howard is often referred to as the mecca, or the center of every Historically Black College or University in the nation, and the unified pride that the students have in its history and what it represents is very real and very substantial. While there's no denying that there is room for improvement on many levels, the important thing is that Howard University is expanding on the good and improving on the not-so-good-constantly striving to become better with each passing year. More importantly, most students feel like they can be a valuable, contributing part of this process.
