Howard University Reviews
This institution is overall good. College in general is what you make it. Any student that enters this institution with the goal of graduating will do just that. This school teaches you perseverance and how to maneuver through college when there are both good times and bad times. The "worst" part was dealing with the cost and financial aid assistance from staff at the A building (which everyone must eventually experience), but my experience here is one that I enjoyed.
Howard University, is located in Washington D.C., the law school is a shuttle ride from the main campus and has a more quieter and refined air to it. That could be the proximity to rock creek park or the simple fact that thurgood Marshall is also an alumni. My experience was enjoyable and unique. The times go by surprisingly fast but the lessons I learned there will last a lifetime.
Howard University is a great institution for educational advancement and networking opportunities. I will speak from experience that Howard University broaden my networking opportunities to speak with local employers about future jobs, gave me the skills to get a job and ways to maintain/keep a job. The professors at the Allied Health Department speak highly of their professions and there are able to recommend and advise potential health science or health management majors. The degree program is pretty straight forward. If you are a potential student and you were not assigned an adviser, I will advise you to establish a relationship with one and keep in constant communication.
Howard is a great place to explore one's identity. While at first glance, one might think it's simply a "Black" school, it is much more. The diversity of thought, culture, race, and intra-racial experiences inspires students to question the world around them in ways that they would not have imagined on their own. Also, the faculty is filled with professors and scholars who are truly invested in the lives and progress of the University's students. Overall, Howard University is a transformative place, and with access to ample opportunities.
While some students struggle with indecisiveness on attending college/graduate school, others decide to further their academic career with hopes of even greater career opportunities. I decided to attend Howard University's School of Communications to pursue a degree in Public Relations Journalism. The program exceeded all of my expectations and left me with a different perspective of myself as well as my potential in the field of communications. I was well equipped with the professional portfolio, networking skills, and references. I used Howard University's resources and applied all of my professors' lectures and words of encouragement to position myself so that I could stand out in such a competitive marketplace. Howard University is an experience that I will never forget, if you don't gain anything from this university, you gain a sense of confidence and the motivation to be your greatest self.
My overall experience at Howard University was amazing! The amount of networking opportunities that students are awarded allow the university to stand out among others. Aside from the networking opportunities, my favorite aspect of Howard University is by-far the tight-knit community between faculty and students.
Howard University was a great school. The lessons that I learned about being confident and proud of who I was and where I come from was absolutely priceless. Although it was 1999 when I graduated, I still remember hanging out in "The Yard," step shows, the library and reading books about African American history. My education program was excellent and I remember how I cultivated my love for teaching. It was an excellent experience and I am glad that I made Howard University my choice.
