"Morgan State University (MSU, Morgan State, or Morgan) is a public historically black (HBCU) research university in Baltimore, Maryland. It is the largest of Maryland's HBCUs. In 1867, the university, then known as the Centenary Biblical Institute, changed its name to Morgan College to honor Reverend Lyttleton Morgan, the first chairman of its board of trustees and a land donor to the college. It became a university in 1975. MSU is a member of Thurgood Marshall College Fund. Morgan awards Baccalaureate, Master's and Doctorate degrees. More than 7,698 students are enrolled at Morgan. Recently, emphasis has been placed on the urban orientation of the university. This emphasis has been incorporated into the graduate programs. At the graduate level, the university offers the Master of Arts degree in African American studies, economics, English, history, international studies, mathematics, music, museum studies and historical preservation, sociology, and teaching.

"If you are looking to make an impact on your community, both in and out of the classroom, Morgan State University is surely the school for you! Upon enrolling as a freshman in 2015, I quickly became involved on campus and begun to make my mark. During my freshman year, I ran for Miss Freshman (a position that allows for you to be the voice/advocate for the entire freshman class). Although I lost the race, I did not let that stop me from being an active member of the Morgan State community. I decided to join the Student Government Association (SGA) as the Freshman Class Community Service Director, in addition I joined a community service based organization called The National Council of Negro Women. My sophomore year, I became involved in an organization called Jewels Inc., which was a mentoring program for young intercity girls in high school. Junior year, I became a member of the Student Research Center and also became a member of the Black and Gold Royal Court representing the Beta Alpha Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. As my undergraduate studies came to an end, I decided to join the Psychological Society, an organization geared specifically to Psychology majors that provided us with networking oppurtunities for the future. During my senior year as a Psych major, I was required to conduct and present my own body of research as a part of my graduation requirements. Overall, I really enjoyed my matriculation at Morgan and would recommend the university to anyone looking to be a force of change in the world. This university has truly given me the building blocks to success."

"Morgan State University has a rich history of producing academic scholars. The school's campus sits in the heart of Northeast Baltimore and is loved by the surrounding communities. Students from all over the world come to the university striving for academic excellence and the university is committed to seeing that they achieve their goal. Friendships are made, lessons are learned, and growth is inevitable. I encourage those who are interested in learning more about this phenomenal HBCU to schedule a tour today!"

"Morgan State University is a great school to attend if you are looking to improve your self-initiative skills. They will make nothing easy for you (which is a good thing in a lot of ways, but can be a pain in others). It's easy getting into Morgan but they will make you work to get out. Retention rate is really high, not because students are lazier here than anywhere else, but because of the numerous standardized tests you must pass with a "B" or better in order to graduate. I, myself, had to take 7 different standardized exams. I was tempted to complain about Morgan a lot while I was there however, now that I look back I am really grateful for the standard they uphold. It grew me and now I tell everyone "Go to Morgan if you want to learn!""

"Morgan was an excellent school. The class sizes were not overwhelmingly large. This have students a chance to have meaningful interactions will all instructors. My department was small, so I was constantly in touch with my professor, program director and advisor. The professors were very helpful for the most part."

"Although Morgan State University was not my first choice, it was the best decision I've made thus far in life. My 5 years at Morgan State University cultivated the leader that I am today. When I first got to Morgan, I was a Chemistry major. As a Cameroonian-American, only careers in medicine, pharmacy, engineering and law were acceptable. Later during my matriculation, I realized that I did not enjoy chemistry and more importantly, I did not want to become a pharmacist. As a result of this realization, I changed my major to Biology. Again, another great decision, I made. While Morgan's Biology Department wasn't equipped with the best labs, it was home to a very intelligent, research-oriented faculty and learning under this diverse faculty further fueled my interest in science. If there was one thing I could change about my program, it would be to make research a requirement. The program was originally intended for those students interested in pursuing Medical school after graduation, the entire student population could have befited from a required internship or science project. Other than that, Morgan was the best!"

"Morgan State University is a top notch learning institution. The diversity of the teaching staff and small class sizes made it an ideal place to learn. I recommend visiting the dynamically growing campus to see if it's right for you. Morgan State University is a leader in the stem sciences as well has several notable alumni."
