Health & Safety: If a student takes the necessary precautions, they will be safe on campus. But at the same time, if our campus was closed, we probably wouldn't need to be as cautious as we are.

Campus Housing: I lived in the Quad freshman year, which is a historical building. I don't want to get into details, but the building is not fit for living.

Greek Life: If you want to be greek, Howard is the perfect school. Mainly because a majority of the divine 9 were founded on our campus.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Our athletics department could be significantly better.

Health & Safety: Could be a lot better as most security it worried about trying to catch people smoking than anything else.

Overall Experience: Howard has some professors that are amazing and will help you grow immensely but there are some teachers who really don't care or just can't teach.

Overall Experience: People don't come to Howard for the education but more so the networking and connections you gain by being there. If you do what you have to do, it's easy to get opportunities and make yourself a competitive applicant.

Campus Housing: Housing process could be better but you just have to make sure you take advantage of RSVP opportunities. They do offer nicer dorms but they're a little more expensive but the traditional dorms help build experiences and bonds like no other.

Greek Life: Greek life is very big on campus as it adds to the whole HBCU experience but if you want to join it's best to keep it on the low.

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.
