Hampton University is an excellent school when it comes to academics.l The professors are very interested in their students. They provide office hours as well as email addresses in order for their students to contact them. All of my professors responded to my emails in a timely manner. I also recieved my test grades with in a 48 hr time frame. Al of my professors were welcoming and available for me to talk to if i had any concerns.

    Don't make the mistake of attending this school. It is not at all worth the money or the hassle. The buildings are badly kept and the dorms and cafeteria are infested with rodents and large bugs. Much of the administration is not focused in taking care of it's students. Dr. Barbra Inman, the Vice President of student affairs will only care about students who's mothers are deltas. She is extremely rude and does not do a good job in her position. Her leadership is leading Hampton university down the drain. The academic programs could be way better. There is nothing to do and nowhere to go, and very unsafe, many student have been jumped and robbed on campus grounds. It was the worst experience of my lie and I would never return. If you want to know more go on twitter and search restore HU to se the horrible conditions for yourself and hear from about them from students.

    Hampton University is what you make it. It has many organizations, clubs and groups to join where you can be with likeminded people. It's small but has a lot to offer.

    Hampton University is a place where you have to know how to network properly in order to succeed. Giving a good impression to your professor(s) can be the difference between simply passing a class and acing a class. If you want to move forward it isn't what you know, but who you know.

    Hampton University is a school that prides itself on diversity and family. Unlike many others colleges/ universities, Hampton tries its best to make you feel safe and at home, especially since many Hampton students come from places like California, the Bahamas, Germany, etc. For many Hampton is a school that has to grow on you, but once it does you become very proud to call yourself a Pirate.
