    I guess Hampton University is worth your money if you can afford it. However, due to the fact that I received the Presidential Scholarship which covers tuition, room, and board, I may not be the best person to ask regarding this facet of the Hampton experience.

    Hampton is a great school academically! However on campus living is overpriced for the facilites and the food in my opinion.

    33k a year is a lot of money to attend Hampton University and as much as a shocker that is, I truly believe it will be worth it in the end. The teachers and administration will do whatever they can to help you find that special job depending on how much you want it. After you graduate and a company sees a degree from Hampton University, I know they will be sold. A lot of prestigious alumni have graduated from Hampton University and you can be one too. Yes, it is a lot of money to attend but through hard work and perseverance a degree from Hampton University will be worth it.

    Hampton is pretty expensive in comparison to some other universities, but luckily a great amount of students are able to find employment both off campus and on. With Hampton being a historic and private institution, we do not receive as much funding as public and state-funded colleges. Hampton, however, offers you a priceless career-driven and inclusive experience that no other school can compete with.

    There are many people who choose to sugar coat things when you ask them their opinion about things such as colleges/univeristies. They tell what they think you want to hear versus what you need to hear. I refuse to be that person. When going to Hampton be prepared to not like it at first. There are certain that Hampton does that are going to frustrate you, like financial aids lack of organization and ability to give you one answer instead of sending you 5-6 different places to find the answer that they should already have. There are many things about Hampton that could be improved or changed, but in reality, who/ what place is perfect? Although Hampton has its drawbacks the thing that makes up for it is that they want you to succeed. They hand you every opportunity in life to succeed, you just have to be smart enough to notice them and take them. Also, no matter what your major, Hampton pushes you to be the best you can be, as a person and in your chosen career field. Unlike other colleges/universities, Hampton teahcers want to see you succeed. As long as you go to them, talk to them, get to know them and form a reltionship with them, they will do their absolute best to help you with whatever you need.
