Overall Experience: Classes and teachers are great, but administration is a hassle. Try to get the freshman scholarship

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Howard is an okay school if your'e into having a vast social life, but being that that is not what I am interested in, I don't really involve myself in campus activity much. the academics could be a little more hands-on but overall they are challenging enough to keep me interested.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Howard University is very high-school-like and the people are petty and materialistic. However, I love the coursework and don't regret choosing this school. My school is unique because although it is an HBCU, we have a very diverse student body that is eager to learn and get involved in their community. I love the sense of home there is at Howard. I would choose this school again if I was given the option.

Overall Experience: I do not start school until the fall and orientation is not until July 20th but after visiting the campus multiple times it has proven to be a decent atmosphere to live in.

Overall Experience: There are some not-so great sides to being at Howard University: the administration building is a hellhole to many students, and the financial aid office needs to up their game. However, there are many sides that trump the bad things by far: the professors are amazing, you will actually learn if you are ready, you will be among the most amazing student body in the world, and you will be pushed to do better because those around you do so.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far my college experience has been great. I fell in love with the fact that I have met so many people from all over the world. My college experience has been very eye opening I have been exposed to so many different things and people and it is helping me realize new possibilities. The types of people I attend school with now are nothing like the people I know from home. It is just refreshing to be surrounded by people who share a common goal but view the world so much differently than myself. being exposed to different points of views helps me think of things in a way that I would have never thought of them before. College is not only getting me ready for a career, but it is making me a well rounded individual. I have had a few rough patches but my school offers so many different forms of help that I cant be lost for too long. I love Howard University and I am glad I decided to become a Bison.

Overall Experience: I did not truly believed I fit in the first semester. I found my place at Howard University and a great group of suppoters and friends.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The thing about Howard is that I originally did not want to go there. i thought that I would attend Temple University, where I was also accepted. However, I didn't choose Howard, Howard chose me. And it's the best thing that I ever let happen to me.

Scholarships: It is important to handle all financial aid issues in person because you will get more feedback than over the phone. However, it does not mean you will get you issues handled.

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.
