Guys & Girls: Howard people are fly and just good-looking. I don't know how that happens but we attract great minds and great looking people and we only get better with time. The eye candy is on point, which is why I return every Homecoming to see the handsome educated fine men. Even as a young professional I occasionally meet guys who are fine as hell only to find they also went to Howard but were a little older than me. I'm not mad at it. Once you have that network, you'll always have access to these guys and I can honestly say this is one of the best parts of being a Howard alum. Our women are gorgeous too and the variety of the beauties are inspiring. From natural hair to swanging weaves, we do it big!

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors
The Howard Girl and the Howard Guy are truly one of a kind. Howard students are always passionate about whatever they are doing. Whether it is class, studying, or partying, everything is serious at Howard. Being ranked the No. 2 best-dressed school in the nation, it is not surprising that the students take personal style seriously. Style varies from thrift store chic, to grandma's closet, to best friend's floor, to the random stores down the corridors of U Street. This does not always mean what is trendy or fashionable, but more or less the way students carry themselves. As a Bison, you are surrounding yourself with other students who want success just as much as you do. This produces a self-confidence that can be seen in the glow of our student's faces. Our female population drastically outnumbers the male population, causing competition among the girls. There is a seemingly constant need to snag the "few good guys" Howard has to offer. Do not let this discourage you because the population has various factors that diminish the negative side effects of the lack of males. With all that said, Howard girls and guys are usually very friendly and look to make the stiff D.C. environment warm and welcoming. Howard has students from all parts of the nation. With every student is a new culture and lifestyle, making Howard a large melting pot for the African American community. There is surely someone at Howard you can relate to no matter the circumstance.

Social Scene
The social scene at Howard is what you make it. With so many students, it is hard for any one place to be the only place. But that said people get creative and crafty. D.C. has many options—it is just up to you to find out what you want to do exactly. But freshman year, the yard is always the move, and it's free!
Hookups or Relationships?
The Howard culture makes it easier for hookups. Relationships happen but are not as common, but don't let that discourage you if you are a relationship type of person. Many students come from home in long-distance relationships. Howard cultivates a culture of free spirits, so anything is possible.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
Each semester different dormitories have socials where guys and girls show up. The Undergraduate Library, classrooms, and the Yard are all good places to meet guys and girls as well.
Dress Code
Howard is the second-best dressed school in the country behind New York University. Therefore, pretty much anything goes! People dare to be different every day, and it is widely accepted. Students like to mix trends from their hometowns with trends in Washington, D.C.
