Langston University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (3)
As a Black young woman who grew up in the middle class suburbs, I longed for a "true" HBCU experience with a rich culture, excellent education, student employment, and a relatively small teacher to student ratio. LU gave me just that! Although it was a bit of a culture shock initially, it took me no time to submerge in the LU traditions. with the support of several professors, I was inspired to work hard and earn a position on the Dean's Honor Roll every semester, become employed as a supplemental instructor and peer tutor, obtain research experience, secure a myriad of scholarships, and most importantly, GRADUATE IN 4 YEARS!
I enjoyed the culture of attending a historically black college. To be surrounded by such rich culture, professional faculty, and caring nurturing environment was everything I need ed in personal development as a undergraduate student. The financial Aid department, was not the most organized, and I did have to micro manage my paperwork, make copies etc, which was very frustrating.Currently I am returning as a graduate student to place that feels like home, and a education that has me equipped for my new field.
Langston University was not my first choice when it came to my collegiate education. I went there based on tradition with my family and because they offered a scholarship to me. Once there, I was surprised at the atmosphere. Because Langston is in the middle of nowhere, you tend to bond with classmates and roommates. Due to that we all grew together and that aspect is what I grew to love about the school. Still to the day, I have friends that would have my back after ten years.
