Student & Graduate Reviews

Meg - 11/14/2014
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016
"I was welcomed with smiles, excitement, and empty promises. Unfortunately the Va Beach campus is poorly run. Most teachers have an attitude and don't desire to help. Nursing is hard but the added stress of the teachers, their attitudes, and lack of desire to teach or even assist you is unacceptable. Classes are unorganized, syllabus is not followed, and things are constantly changing! Several students entered with low gpa - spent over a year in classes only to be told they couldn't move forward because of their cumulative gpa. It's just sad. Only one teacher cares and truly desires for you to succeed. Overall teachers are condescending."

"From a highly structured freshman year (including curfew and professional dress codes) to internship opportunities and professional connections, Hampton University has prepared me mentally and academically to be a confident young professional. I have had multiple reputable internship opportunities and have been more than prepared to compete with my peers from big ten, predominantly white institutions in my internship setting. Not only do I believe in my personal professional success, I believe in that of my peers in and outside of the journalism school (Biology, 5 year MBA and Architecture, Pharmacy etc.) Professors are knowledgeable of industry trends and give great advice on life as well. I have had two of the same professors twice and they know me well and are invested in my performance. 12-2s, celebrity concerts and a beautiful waterfront make for an exciting social atmosphere, where greeks stroll and you may even see President Harvey walking to his home or office. I have studied abroad and met students from all over the world. Being from the Midwest, HU is far from home. The gated, water on three sides campus, where visitors show ID and purpose of visit upon arrival, made my parents feel safe leaving their only child. Critiques of Hampton U include, an administration that usually takes a several phone calls to reach can be frustrating, and the Cost of tuition that I believe would be more reasonable with increased scholarship opportunities to non freshman who have remained on the deans list. Overall, HU has a rich traditional history, sternly invests in character building and is a big family (big brother/big sister program), where you know the names, hometowns, and majors of your fellow Hamptonians. As a member of the Student Recruitment Team, I see first hand the investments HU makes in introducing, touring, and enrolling smart students to be molded into the Hampton Men and the Hampton Women that go on to continue the legacy. The mantra “Standard of Excellence” and “Home by the Sea” are TRUE and I am glad I chose Hampton U."
