4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek life on campus definitely adds to the college experience. They host quite a few events ranging from parties to panels that help students grow as adults and in their academics. The available Greek life on campus includes the Divine 9 in addition to other academic fraternities and sororities. Students revere Greeks to a degree, they're respected for their history, what they do on campus and their family bond.

Overall Experience: My Howard is experience is really one for the books. I love being surrounded by people who are just as goal oriented as me, we push each other to do better. Every where you look you see people dedicated to self growth, success, and self love. In addition, the connections the school provides is amazing and I feel like success is just waiting t the door. If I could do it all over I would always choose Howard.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Howard is a great school. It's got its down sides, but it will build your character like none other. Salute.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Getting a degree from Howard will carry weight anywhere you go, and if they don't know, they better ask somebody. That is all.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Personally, I feel very safe on campus. It is not a closed campus; however, we always have police cars roving around, so that's good.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: During my freshman year, my housing could have definitely been better. This is because, for the majority of the year, I had problems with the air conditioning as well as pests.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is extremely big at Howard University. It is even bigger than athletics. You will see more people at a Alpha probate than you will at a Howard football game. I would probably be at the Alpha probate, too.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics at Howard University definitely does not come first on the list of priorities for the school. It doesn't really come second or third either. Academics are a lot bigger as well as Greek life. I think that Greek life and athletics are definitely switched in terms of importance at other schools.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Howard University is a wonderful school. All of the people are amazing. I couldn't have asked for a more enlightening first year of college. I am truly blessed to have gotten the opportunity to go there.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Quad and Drew are filled with traditions and history. CHS/CHN are brand new and boring but worth the money.

1 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports teams suck besides girls soccer

4 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Getting a degree from Howard says something about that student in terms of pride and respect for themselves. At Howard it's all about connecting in order to get ahead, so being a social butterfly and getting to know people through either social media or in person is always the best thing to do in order to gain opportunities.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We've had issues in the past with administration not taking quick enough action with rapists on our campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It depends on where you live. I lived in College Hall North which was only built about 2 or 3 years ago. The cleanliness and the appearance of CHN looks brand new and still clean. We also get our own bathrooms in our room, 2 study rooms on each floor, a game room, a center entertainment room on each floor, and we are right next to the cafe. The rules are strict and it feels more like a hotel in terms on connecting with your floor mates, however I was very comfortable there.

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.
