I have learned more in the past year at Howard than I can honestly put into words. I have learned so much about Architecture my first year that I can confidently draft floor plans and elevations of a structure, and make a decent model of it, whereas at the beginning of the year I had no idea what a drafting board was. I feel as though I am also learning what it truly means to be an adult, and to be independent.

    Howard is a combination of networking, culture shocks, and lots of learning experiences. The students here are more than just fellow classmates, they are family and you can feel that bond in the HU atmosphere. The campus is also a nice size, not too small and not too big.

    Howard University is an excellent institution, I feel apart of a family here. The teachers are not only great professors, but are attentive and show their help and support; they want every one of their students to succeed. Howard has helped me to form so many relationships on and off campus; not only with my faculty and peers, but also with surrounding businesses and corporations that also want to see us all succeed

    Howard is diverse. We have a lot of African American scholars from different areas of the county. A plus is we have a vast amount of networking opportunities because of our location.

    Often there is excitement about attending Howard University due to it's prestigious past. The school is not the school that it once was, but Howard is still an amazing institution to attend. The atmosphere of the students and professors as well as the academics here make the college experience great.

    Howard University is one of the greatest universities for everyone. Even though it is an HBCU (Historically Black College/University), it has something to offer every person. This school has a strong chance of helping people really find themselves.
