    Great for these types of students

    Outgoing and friendly people fit right in at Morehouse. There are all types of people at Morehouse and you'll make friends your first year no matter who you are. Academic success is important to most people on campus, so driven , hard working students do the best at Morhouse.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be outgoing. You're not going to meet anyone or have any fun sitting in your room all day. Get into activities, whatever interests you do it. Go to parties, have fun, live life. For academic success make sure you go to class and turn in your work on time. Don't fall behind b/c the work will keep piling on. Ask for help when you need it b/c help is available. Get in cool with your professors b/c you never know if you'll really need there help. FYI coming in class late and not showing up to class at all frequently is a slap in your professors face. They won't like that and will be less likely to do you a favor, trust me.

    Bang for the buck

    For almost 40k a year in total costs, there is definite room for improvement. For starters, the cafeteria or the Caf could be waayyyyy better. Fried chicken Wednesday's are OK, but besides that you might get tired of eating pizza and fries every day. You get used to it though and it's not that bad, just needs some improvements. Could use some updated facilities. Like for me personally I would like a bigger weight room and another basketball court b/c Archer can get packed sometimes. Your in West End ATL so you're not paying for the scenic views, but you are really close to downtown so it's easy to get places. Costs do not meet expectations but you will learn to adapt. It'll be a good experience for you ha ha.

    Am enjoying being here

    Atlanta is a great place to go to school. The city is fun and has a great night life. There's a bunch of other school's in Atlanta, so if you ever get tired of being in the AUC you can always head to Georgia State, Emory, GA Tech just to name a few and find something to get into. It's very easy to meet people and make new friends. You'll have PLENTY of opportunities to meet Clark and Spelman girls so don't worry. There will be a lot of 5 Star rated Spelman girls with deep pockets so, ummm yea. It really is a cool place to be, and the people and the whole Atlanta atmosphere really makes up for some of Morehouse's shortcomings.

    Am learning a lot

    How you do and how much you learn your freshman year really depends on how challenging your high school was. To be honest, my freshman year was kind of a breeze. Of course you have to study and make sure you GO TO CLASS, but if you do what you need to do to be successful you'll be fine. I know kids that were failing basic algebra, so really it depends on your high school course work. Of course that was just your general core classes, not too hard. The rigor of the course work will increase as you matriculate (you'll hear that word a lot), but if you put in the work you'll be fine. This is all based on my freshman year though. The teacher's are good for the most part and you can get plenty of 1on1 time with your prefessor which is a great thing. Theres always help when you need it from student tutors and your professors.

    Great for these types of students

    Morehouse College is great for students who have family in Georgia. Its a bit challenging to get used to if you are used to living in cities such as Manhattan. However, if you have a car or you just have good knowledge of Georgia, then this college might just be for you.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are considering coming to Morehouse College, I suggest looking into buying an apartment. I also suggest having a car because its extremely difficult to get around. I also suggest that you network with as many students and faculty/staff that you can. Its extremely helpful in the long run.

    Bang for the buck

    I am not too sure about this one. The school is quite expensive. I don't think we are getting everything we paid for. I suggest living off campus because it saves you a huge amount of money.

    Am enjoying being here

    I'm not too sure if I am enjoying my stay here at Morehouse College. I am used to the transportation system from New York. I was able to just hop on the bus or train and go anywhere. Down here in Georgia, they do have the MARTA system, but it takes time to get used to. You literally have to use the MARTA if you need anything. Nothing is in walking distance, which is one of the main reasons I am not enjoying my stay here. I have to spend extra money just to get something simple.

    Am learning a lot

    I am learning quite a lot. The majority of the teachers here are excellent and actually know how to teach. They have office hours if you want to have a one-on-one conversation with them. They don't play around because at the end of the day, its your grade and your money so they know to be serious about that. However, there are a handful of teachers who really shouldn't teach because they can't get anything done in a timely manner and then the student(s) end up suffering because of them.

    Great for these types of students

    This is an environment i can honestly recommend for anyone because Morehouse accepts students from every background imaginable. You name it, there's a sub-community for all your interests, needs, and background. There's something at Morehouse for every young man...

    Tips for prospective students

    Stay hungry, stay focused, but remain humbled. Its very easy to lose your humility in an environment of success and in an environment of praise. Remember that with that praise comes expectation, an expectation that as a Man of Morehouse you are well learned, well behaved, well dressed, and well aware just to name a few. Learn to embrace the meaning of brotherhood and family, remain open minded, and never cease to challenge not only yourself but those around you.

    Bang for the buck

    For the cost, you look at the facilities and around the campus and as a student of course you wonder Where is all this money going. No Morehouse doesn't have amazing athletic facilities, not many state of the art classrooms or labs, and no the dorms aren't hardly fancy. However the bang for your buck comes from the culture of Morehouse and the AUC. This is very much a community that forces one to be social and network. This network you build, will be something you can depend on for the rest of your life and the extensiveness of the network is beyond comprehension.

    Did enjoy being here

    Initially I swayed about how much I was really liking Morehouse College. I mean paying so much money and having the West End be my welcoming mat, I just had my doubts. However this turned out to be one of, if not thee best decision I ever made in life. The people there were phenomenal and there was always something exciting going on. Its a one of a kind atmosphere that I'm blessed to have experienced.

    Did learn a lot

    Learning at Morehouse College occurs not only in the classroom but in everyday happenings around the campus. This is an amazing environment for exchanging knowledge and experiences because of all the schools in close proximity bringing in people from all over the world of tremendously different backgrounds. How much you learn is only limited by your own desires.

    Greek Life

    Greek Life is very evident around campus. Alpha Phi Alpha - �������¦���� Iota Phi Theta - �������¦���� Kappa Alpha Psi - �����������¨ Omega Psi Phi - ���©���¨���¦ Phi Beta Sigma - ���¦�������£

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    During New Student Orientation (NSO) week, a program called A Candle In the Dark occurs in the wee hours of the morning. I can't tell you exactly what it is but I highly encourage you to attend. In my opinion, you aren't truly a Man of Morehouse if you haven't experienced it. Important Note: If you are attending the college, you are a Man of Morehouse. Once you have graduated, then and only then are you a Morehouse Man. Don't wear any Morehouse paraphernalia until AFTER Spirit Night during NSO week.

    Bang for the buck

    Honestly, the campus leaves you wondering where the 40K is going. A lot of the buildings are in need of renovations. But don't let this take away from your campus experience. The students make the campus, not its facilities.

    What to do for fun

    It is Atlanta, so the possibilities are endless. There are numerous malls that can be accessed via MARTA. There are shuttles that run to facilities in the area including the West End Mall and two MARTA train stations. Greek probates are always fun. There are always different events on campus to attend including the annual celebrity basketball game as well as homecoming festivities. There are parties EVERY week. Don't get wrapped up in these parties because they happen very often. Your education comes first.

    Food and Dining

    The food in the caf is bearable. You can catch your good days and the bad ones. The meals get repetitive from week to week to the point that you can accurately predict what you are having to eat. However, there is a Papa John's, Kilgore Snack Bar, and Jazzman's Cafe on campus that you can get a variety of food from, but you have to pay for those. During your freshman year, you get $25 dollars each semester that can be spent between these places. After your first year, you can change your meal plan to include more additional dollars on your account.

    Dorm Life

    The residence halls represent different learning communities dependent upon your major and career aspirations. For example, Brazeal Hall is primarily for iSTEM (Innovations in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) students. This is an easy way to form study groups and find students that have common academic interests. Also, there is a friendly rivalry between freshmen residence halls. We have step team and stroll team competitions, and also a year-long competition for residence hall of the year. Now, for the bad. Bathroom facilities are communal so they are shared with everyone on your floor. Not all men are sanitary, so it can get a little annoying. Another bad thing is that freshmen are not allowed to have female visitation in the residence halls until after homecoming, which doesn't happen until mid-October.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes get tougher as you get farther into your major. Your freshman year should be a breeze as long as you attend class and study very often! Take your freshmen year as an opportunity to take easy classes and pad your GPA before the tougher classes roll in.

    Tips for prospective students

    Any skills that you have (instrumental, singing, art, etc.), use them to your advantage. These skills will help you gain titles on campus that will pad your resume for the future. Also, at the end of your orientation week you will be paired with your Spelman sister. Don't take this as your next target as a girlfriend. Your Spelman sister is your link to Spelman College and all of it's opportunities whether that means other Spelmanites, classes, or even jobs. Treat her like a queen.

    In three sentences

    Morehouse College is internationally known for producing successful African American men. A Morehouse education is a cultural experience like no other. Once you graduate as a Morehouse Man, you join a network of fellow Morehouse Men who will do anything to help you along your path in the future.

    Campus Safety

    The college is located in an unsafe neighborhood but the college does an excellent job with providing security. Every entrance is guarded night and day by Police officers contracted by the college. There are isolated incidents but the majority of them occur outside of the school grounds.

    Greek Life

    Greek life is promenant on campus. The school does not provide housing but it does support greek life and has specific parts of the campus dedicated to it, i.e. the freshman quad.

    Clubs and Activities

    Campus life at Morehouse is great. CASA, a student run organization, sponsors and runs many events on campus. Every wednesday there is an event called hump wednesday that students can attend free of charge that offers music and sometimes celebrity appearances. Morehouse campus life offers a variety of experiences for pretty much any type of student.

    Great for these types of students

    Morehouse is great for all types of students. It is great for socialites, introverts, studious types and game changers. The culture at the school allows for students from various backgrounds to interact and learn from each other.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The campus is bursting at the seams with tradition. During freshman orientation the students have a crash course on the history of the campus and the school. They encourage students to take pride in knowing key names and people in the history of the school that makes it what it is and is to be.

    Bang for the buck

    The school cost too much for what is offered. Students sometimes encounter community college level staff for the price of an Ivy league tuition. If there was a revamping of Gen Ed teachers this rating would go to at least 4 stars. The teachers for major courses are serious about their job and offer challenges to all of their students.

    What to do for fun

    There are many student organized clubs as well as an array of campus organizations that put on various activities for students on a weekly basis. The school is located several minutes away from downtown Atlanta. Atlanta is a busy city with many neighboring colleges and universities. There is always something to do whether on or off campus.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria has improved over the years increasing the number of food options but fails to properly screen the staff on customer service abilities. The meal plans are pricy but offer steady meals. The cafeteria is open 6am until 8pm but only offers full meals at specific times. The school does not indicate health information on meals neither do they indicate if the food is organic or not.

    Dorm Life

    Morehouse does an excellent job of incorporating the culture of the school into the dormitory life. Creating opportunities for students to network and form a unique brotherhood that the school promotes while providing a safe and studious environment. All freshman must stay on campus in one of the indicated freshman dorms and must have a roommate. There is no type of variation in dorm styles or plans until the student is a sophomore and is allowed to move either off campus or into the Otis Moss Suites. The Otis Moss Suites offer apartment style housing or the regular dorm style.

    Academic Rigor

    The Curriculum requires students to be open minded and well rounded in their studies. Studies range from Ancient Greek studies to modern African American literature and everything in between. The course load increases significantly when a student chooses a major. It is easy to fall behind because teachers assign a steady stream of work. It is not impossible however, to do well.

    Tips for prospective students

    Set up and stick to a 4 year plan with your advisor. Do more than what is required of you, attend all of the required crown forums and assemblies. Apply all that you learn to your life. Be involved with the faculty and administration. Do not underestimate the power of networking.

    In three sentences

    I would rate Morehouse a 7.5 out of 10 on curriculum and a 9 out of 10 on opportunities for cultivation of wisdom. The school offers a generous amount of wisdom and knowledge but does a unsatisfactory job of focusing on individual students. The Morehouse brand focuses more on members past than future greats.

    Great for these types of students

    Academic, studious, competitive, hard-working, and diligent. Also works for the party hoppers and binge drinkers, just remember that you have to go to class sometimes. Stand out and be yourself!

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply for as many scholarships as you can and remember that this is a college setting, even though it may be reminiscent of high school at times. Your GPA and National test scores will mean everything upon graduation so if you can't really afford to screw up early on. Enjoy your time in college, but always remember what you are there for. Morehouse will treat you well, as long as you smile and stay clear of the financial department.

    Bang for the buck

    I'm currently paying about double of what the tuition is at Georgia State... Per semester. My student loans will probably eat me alive. The academics are well-founded though, and many of the experiences found here at Morehouse cannot be found anywhere else in the country. I really appreciate the opportunities given here at Morehouse and I will be a proud graduate soon.

    Am enjoying being here

    Most of the professors here are kind and care about the academic well-being of their students, but like all colleges there are some professors who are only here for a paycheck. The atmosphere in the Biology field also creates a Dog Eat Dog mentality with classmates which will make it hard to find worthwhile help. Persevere and keep your eyes on your goals and you will do well.

    Am learning a lot

    The field of Biology at Morehouse College is very detailed and taught by some of thud most distinguished professors in the United States. The Biology track here is also very rigorous though, and many will drop out of he program immediately if you are brave enough to continue, just know that it won't get easier. Study hard and work harder.

    Campus Safety

    on campus its a pretty safe environment but we are located at the west end of atlanta which isn't the best neighborhood but as long as you travel with others and take the shuttle/marta from campus to nearby places you will not have much to worry about!

    an unusual tradition at morehouse is crown forum. most students at other colleges get this confused with their town hall. i explain to them that we have town hall as well but crown forum is mandatory for all students to attend at least six per semester where guest speakers(speakers are often well known) come and share experiences etc.

    Bang for the buck

    morehouse college is a great school with a lot of opportunities. i am a finance major and i can tell you there are always companies on campus looking to give internship and jobs!

    Dorm Life

    i never stayed on campus so i really cannot chime in on this!

    Academic Rigor

    most of the professors you will encounter are fast pace and do not accept late work regardless if you have an excuse for being absent or whatever the case maybe.

    Tips for prospective students

    to all prospective students make sure you fill out tons of scholarship applications because morehouse is expensive. make sure you build strong bonds with your brothers and spelman sisters. stay focus because classes are fast pace.

    In three sentences

    morehouse college prepares young men for their professional and personal life. classes are usually limited to 30 students or less. professors are very knowledgeable on the subjects he or she teaches.

    Campus Safety

    Police security has been better at not allow any an everyone on our campus, checking I.D.s every time you leave campus and re-entering. Room checks continue to prevent any dangerous items or people from destroying Morehouse College good name.

    Greek Life

    In every campus the fraternities have their mark. Once you hear the chants and see the strolls you automatically get pulled in to the college atmosphere. Alphas, Kappas, Omegas, and Sigmas can be found on our campus at any time of the day. Joining a brotherhood such as these is a difficult decision, make the correct choice.

    Clubs and Activities

    The clubs here allow you to introduce yourself to an entire different group of individuals with the same strengths and weaknesses of you. It is up to you to pick the right group to join. Either it is the NAACP, or the Honors Program.

    Great for these types of students

    For any young man that desires to better himself and truly challenge his mentality for getting what he can while its there, this is the perfect school for them.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Their are not any unusual traditions but their are some night time activities such as man hunt. These simple games take place with team of males and females. Luckily for us, Spelman is an all female school across the street. The young ladies join in these activities from day to day.

    Bang for the buck

    On campus students are given alot of discounts on any item of desire, even off campus. Being a student is profitable for you at times but can still hurt you.

    What to do for fun

    Being an athlete has its perks. Most of my fun is during the weekend when I am listening to music, going to a couple get together's or playing basketball. No matter what the day something is happening on campus.

    Food and Dining

    Funny thing about the food on campus will continue to be the same. Cafe food is the same as that of when you were a child. The only difference is the wide variety of different foods to choose from.

    Dorm Life

    Not much can be said about staying in a dorm. The thing to remember is you sleep there you do not live there. Confused are you? You actually live in the study halls. Staying in any dorm depends on your year in college. Freshman dorms are said to be the most immature but continue to be active. Where as being an upperclassmen academia are taken more seriously and the halls of those dorms are quiet. In the end your dorm life is ultimately up to you.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors do not allow any excuses for being late or missing class. Docking off points on your grade can come very easily, but you must be in class in order to pass. Test can save you in most cases but homework and quizzes must be taken seriously.

    Tips for prospective students

    In order to succeed here you must study and apply yourself. Parties and the fun times will be there, remember why you went to college.

    In three sentences

    This institution, has become more than a school. Morehouse College is a college that will challenge your mental capacity and forces you to fight for what your true desires are. Failure is not excepted, and mediocrity is not an option.

    Campus Safety

    Morehouse College is open to the public and is very easy to access. Some students have been robbed and the police force lacks in their department of maintaining a safe environment. However, students quickly understand the do's and don'ts to maintain personal safety. For instance, students are encouraged to lock their doors every time they leave the room and travel with groups at night. Morehouse students are usually targeted for robberies so wearing Morehouse paraphernalia is strongly discouraged.

    Greek Life

    You will easily know who is apart of Greek Life. Each fraternity always shows up for every event and are well known amongst the student body. Students cannot join until their sophomore year, but the students that do join are always active.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is always something to do and always an organization to join. Opportunities for a leadership role are always available. Creativity is encouraged. Clubs will usually get together and make a huge memorable event.

    Great for these types of students

    Enjoys Cultured Environment. Enjoys Hanging With Friends. Looking to make connections with upstanding personnel. Enjoys seeing in different perspectives. Respects Brotherhood Encourages Open-mindedness

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Classified. Telling incoming students the traditions of Morehouse will ruin the surprise of New Student Orientation.

    Bang for the buck

    If you come to Morehouse on scholarship (which is very likely), then yes. The cost of room and board alone is worth it if you attend all that Morehouse offers. The students that don't do much on campus are the ones wasting their money. Enjoy what you paid for.

    What to do for fun

    When students think of fun they think of off-campus activities. Morehouse College is right down the street from the Marta and students are always found venturing through Atlanta for a good time. On the weekends students are usually found in the illustrious Lennox Mall perusing through stores or enjoying the night-life at Atlantic Station. Parties are always advertised for those party-goers, and lounge restaurants are only a Marta ride away for students who enjoy a relaxing get-away. On Campus, Morehouse students provide Hump-Wednesday, which is a large get-together amongst all the AUC students (Clark Atlanta, Morehouse, and Spelman). Step teams show their moves, students dance and eat, and sometimes celebrities come visit. The cast of Think Like a Man came last year and Kevin Hart spoke from the mic. Students are also encouraged to attend sporting events, student-led fashion shows, Open mic nights (Thursdays), fraternity competitions, and more.

    Food and Dining

    Chivers Dining Hall provides a wide assortment of dishes (some better than others). They will normally serve usual dishes such as lasagna, baked chicken, rice and vegetables. Other times students are surprised with frog legs, crocodile, venison, and seasoned tofu. Students always rush to get the fried chicken wednesday specials (fried chicken, mac n' cheese, collards, cornbread, and black-eye peas) and fried fish fridays specials. There are different lines to choose from, which satisfy the students' appetites (stir-fry, on the grill, pizza, salad bar, and main dish). Once students have their plates they can sit down and socialize with all the students there, watch T.V. (sports or news), or converse with the servers who always remember your face and greet you with a smile and the usual Southern hospitality. If Chivers' meal plan doesn't satiate the appetite one can always venture over to Kilgore Hall and pay out of pocket for some curly fries, subs, sandwiches, Chicken Fingers, Burgers, and more. There is also the option of Papa Johns, Freshens, and Jazzman's Cafe which are all on campus. If one doesn't want to eat on-campus food they can go to Spelman College for sushi (upcoming) or subway.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life at Morehouse College will make your college years your best years. You will meet tons of characters. The RD's and RA's are extremely dedicated to molding the students into respectable men.They are open to their residents and are usually found driving their residents out to get late night snacks and fast foods. Residence Hall pride is encouraged through RH (residence hall) step teams and awards for best hall. Nevertheless, all halls intermingle on a daily via the close-knit student body. Morehouse College also provides daily janitorial services and a Residence Hall Counsel which tends to the needs of the residents on a daily.

    Academic Rigor

    Freshman work load varies between turn-in-questions, class presentations, and ten-page papers. The first semester will surely be an eye-opener to students who are still in High-School mode. The professors will work you hard and it is personal responsibility to assure deadlines are met.

    Tips for prospective students

    Know your path. Know what you want to achieve and understand what it will take to achieve it. One cannot simply enter Morehouse College and expect to land a high-paying job in the socioeconomic world. Morehouse College offers connections more-so than clout. The College is not ivy-league and easy to manage; however, Morehouse is loved for the challenge. Know the staff. Be on top of everything in terms of financials, curriculum, and demands. Students who have financial problems are usually found in the financial office day and night racking-up on scholarships that are not advertised. These students take initiative and show the staff that they are willing to work for what they want. The same goes for students who are well in-tune with their major department. These students find summer jobs and research programs much easier than students who do internet searches, because they take initiative in their studies. The best students of Morehouse College are the most respected. The most respected students show the most initiative. Therefore, the best students of Morehouse College show the most initiative.

    In three sentences

    Morehouse College does not provide its boys with a luxurious experience. However, the luxury is promised to those boys who allow Morehouse College to mold them into men. Howard Thurman said, “Over the heads of her students, Morehouse holds a crown that she challenges them to grow tall enough to wear.”

    Academic Rigor

    Tips for prospective students

    I would say stay ahead in your classes and makes friends to network with.

    Morehouse is a very unique school that can either gain your love or hate. The message that Morehouse sends to the students either fits their personality or go completely against their morals. All in all, Morehouse is a good school to attend.

    Campus Safety

    Although Morehouse College has its own security and campus police, Morehouse is situated in the run down West End neighborhood which comes with its own set of dangers. Just pay attention and be careful at all times.

    Greek Life

    The Greek Life is exceptional. The Greeks on campus and that have pledge at Morehouse are the best of the best. They are the most prestigious chapters and are always doing things on campus and to help the community.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are clubs and activities for any kind of interest you may have. From sorts to school and everything else, there is something on campus for everything.

    Great for these types of students

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The campus is very historical and Morehouse is deeply rooted in tradition. From the singing of the hymn to the Maroon blazers, it is a traditional school gearing students for the future.

    Bang for the buck

    Morehouse College is very expensive to attend and they always nickle and dime you once you get there, but the resources and knowledge you gain as well as the networking is something you cant get anywhere else.

    What to do for fun

    There are always things to do on campus. From Hump Wednesday, to Market Fridays which are pretty much parties hosted during the day by the schools, to interest meetings, to special appearances by celebrities to parties, there is always something to do on campus and you can always go around Atlanta for fun too.

    Food and Dining

    The food is terrible. Morehouse doesn't actually do the food, they hire a company to do it for them. But the food definitly isn't worth the money.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is so much fun. You'll meet some lifelong friends there. They do have quiet hours so you'll be able to get your work done but have fun at the same time.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics are very hard and Morehouse College does have an attendance rule so you have to go to every class. Make sure you stay on your studies before you go out and do all the things that the Atlanta University Center has to offer.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure that you have your money in order for school because the financial aid office is an understaffed unhelpful mess. But realize that when you get there Morehouse is an amazing place to meet people so learn to network and don't be afraid to meet people.

    In three sentences

    Morehouse College is an excellent as not only an HBCU but also as an insitutution of higher learning. From a small campus environment with individual attention paid to students, to the amazing big city that it is in, Morehouse college is an amazing place to be for academics and networking.

    Campus Safety

    Located within the heart of the West End there are a few safety issues. The campus police staff appear to be lack-luster at times this may be due to the comparisons to neighboring force guarding the impenetrable Spelman College. Overall you are adequately educated on the dangers of the surrounding area and your safety is first determined by your own decision making.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a great deal of organizations to get involved with on campus. If you can't find one of your liking their is always the opportunity to construct you own.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Crown forum is an event held on Thursdays in the renowned King's Chapel. During this event famous speakers and alumni come and address students on informative issues.

    Bang for the buck

    To be honest you would be paying more for the name of the college than the education itself. Morehouse has gain recognizable status in society and the name the brand carries opens many doors. But through an increase in Alumni giving and better expenditures on the colleges behalf its amenities can be brought up to the high standards the name carries.

    What to do for fun

    You're in Atlanta attending a school that borders Spelman and Clark Atlanta University need I say more. There will always be an event or someone promoting something that may catch your interest. Campus life is entertaining especially an event known as Hump Wednesday reminiscent of a campus block party held every Wednesday.

    Food and Dining

    You will hear many complaints about Chivers cafeteria but the food itself is not horrible. These complaints may stem from the hours of operation or even the menu choice. Overall the cafeteria will be a place of philosophical and heated discussion that are often extremely entertaining.

    Dorm Life

    The facilities themselves are lacking. The university often uses the word historic to forgo to the upgrading of amenities. Although the residential halls (not dorms) are somewhat lacking they foster a brotherhood that will last well beyond matriculation.

    Academic Rigor

    You have to opportunity to succeed and everything is there for you it is only up to you to take advantage of the provided tools. If you truly apply yourself you will reap the full benefits of a Morehouse education. But it is extremely easy to become distracted by the happenings in the Atlanta area.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not get caught up in the many things the city of Atlanta has to offer. Many students go down to the Atlanta University Center (AUC) and are swept up in the party-life and lose sight of what they are down there for in the first place. Take full advantage of the classes you take your freshman year because they will in fact be the easiest and the cornerstone of your GPA.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students who do not like the huge college experience and want to have a more personal experience.

    Bang for the buck

    Morehouse could definitely offer more bang for your buck. As great as Morehouse College is, it is somewhat of a gritty school. You will need to struggle some, and this struggle is what makes you a distinguished man of Morehouse. There are some things that Morehouse students complain about; food, administration, teachers, financial aid, but overall the experience is unmatched and exceptional.

    What to do for fun

    There are a lot of fun things to do around campus. A campus organization called C.A.S.A is generally responsible for putting on events around campus. Every Wednesday there is a block party called Hump Wednesday because it represents the hump of the week. Every Thursday there is a poetry jam at Jazzmynes cafe. During the week you can find many random events including plays, music jams, movie showings or you can choose to be old fashion and just sit outside and enjoy the Atlanta weather. Also, if you ever get tired of Morehouse students the lovely ladies of Spelman are right next door and the students of Clark Atlanta are close by as well. The three schools share a bond with each other and the students interact daily. Also off campus Atlanta has tons of things to offer.

    Food and Dining

    The dining hall at Morehouse College is called Chivers Dining hall. Any Morehouse student will tell you Chivers does not resemble a 5 star restaurant so dont get your hopes up too high. Chivers does make an effort to give you creative entrees. The cafeteria does offer three meals and some staple points that if you eat you should be on the safe side. The best options are the burgers, friends, stir fry line, fried chicken, rice, and fish. Besides the food, sometimes the serving times can be frustrating. If you miss the cafe at the main serving times, you can still get food around campus. The other options are Kilgore plaza where they serve amazing chicken tenders. Also there is a Papa Johns, Jazzmans cafe and a Freshens for all your other needs.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are not top tier but they do serve their purpose. As an freshman your dorm options are very limited. This is because the administrations wants to give the freshman a more structured experience. As an upperclassmen you have more options including the best dorm on campus called the suites. The suites allows you to have a single connected by a common room. There are four bedrooms and two bathrooms in every suite. One has the option of having a suite with a kitchen and stove top as well. This dorm is the most popular because of the freedom each student has. Overall Morehouse dorms do a great job of creating a community sense between the students. Generally when living in the dorms, you pick up many new friends.

    Academic Rigor

    Morehouse College is very rigorous academically. Though a student's individual work load will depend on their major, generally an average night has at least 3 hours of homework. While a student at Morehouse you should always maintain a work calendar because long term projects need to be handle in increments. With daily assignments and long term assignments if you wait too long they can definitely become overwhelming.

    Tips for prospective students

    I encourage you to apply to Morehouse, visit and speak with the students. One thing you will notice is the overall upbeat rapport of the students. At Morehouse is important to get involved on campus and really make the teachers and staff your friends. Morehouse will give you back everything that you put into it, so the more effort the better.

    In three sentences

    Morehouse College has turned the educational experience of college into a community improving experience. At Morehouse College your are challenged to do your best but what makes it special is the brotherhood you develop. While you strive to do your best your brothers will be with you stride for stride doing their best as well.

    What to do for fun

    There are parties every single night in the AUC area and party buses come to the school to pick students up but you have to find your own way back. Outside of the AUC, in downtown ATL, we have the popular tourist stops like the Aquarium and Coca-Cola, but there's so much to do on campus. Just wait until the Fall... you'll see.

    Food and Dining

    If you don't expect for the cafe to serve five-star, Olive Garden quality meals, then you're already off to a good start. The food is delicious and they offer great variety, including meal choices for vegans and vegitarians. The cafe offers a salad bar and pizza daily, but over time, you'll get used to the food and when that happens, you'll find yourself ordering food every night. (Please don't do that, save $)

    Dorm Life

    Morehouse is an old school so some residential halls won't be equipped with the latest in technology HD TVs or IKEA quality furniture, but every residence hall is not the same, so find one that fits your needs. I recommend Graves Hall, which has the best view of the campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on your major, the academic rigor varies. For STEM majors, expect a tough schedule. Your courses will be in the daytime so at night, stay away from parties and study, study, study.

    Tips for prospective students

    Manage your time and money and most importantly have self-control. If you never learn to suppress your urges, then you'll never become a man.

    If you want to see yourself in a leadership position or you want to discover yourself and find your roots and heritage, then Morehouse College is the school for you.

    Campus Safety

    Inside Morehouse College, is a pretty save place. The area that Morehouse College is in called West End can be danger if you are not careful. Morehouse encourages their students not to wear Morehouse clothing off campus grounds. If you go downtown in Atlanta wearing Morehouse clothing, then it should be cool. The local West End residents might think you are an easy target if you attend Morehouse, but most of them are not looking for trouble. Morehouse College has campus police, and some of them look like incredible hulks walking around.

    Greek Life

    Morehouse has all the fraternities you could think of. We have Omegas, Alfas,Kappas etc. Each fraternity has different colors and chants. They have Stroll offs(stepping) battles between each other. Some Fraternities have Barbeque's and cookouts, which are live. They have parties that they host, and if you are apart of their Frat, then you get in for free. The movie Stomp The Yard was filmed at Morehouse College, which is a movie with Fraternities step battling each other.

    Clubs and Activities

    In the beginning of your Freshman year at Morehouse, you will attend this event called Olive Branch. This is the first time you meet the Freshman girls from Clark and Spelman. Olive Branch, is a big dance held at night on Clark Atlanta's football field. The girls arrive at the football field first and wait for the boys, then all the boys from Morehouse and Clark go to the field. There will be a DJ there. Also, another tradition Morehouse has is that Freshman get paired up with Spelman and Clark sisters. The Morehouse Freshman will walk in a straight line to Kings Chapel.

    Campus security was questionable in the past but thanks to the current Student Government Association, the campus safety has risen dramtically.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is a club for almost anything on campus and if there isn't the good thing about this campus is that you can create it if there isn't.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students who like traditions and those who enjoy having fun while serious about their education.

    What to do for fun

    There are parties nearly ever weekend here in Atlanta just for the college students in the Atlanta University Center. There is a recreational hall here on campus where swimming, basketball, weightlifting and exercising, pool and ping pong occurs, not to mention that we are right next to Forbes Arena where many celebrities come to host their basketball games.

    Food and Dining

    The food here is not 5 star and the Cafeteria itself sometimes does not meet expectations but nevertheless it is a buffet style cafeteria that has many choices to choose from and includes cultural foods weekly.

    Dorm Life

    This campus is dedicated to make sure that you make the most out of everything and that means within your dorm. There are countless events to represent your dorm in games and events that happen around campus. Every freshman is highly encouraged and almost nearly required to have a roommate. This helps increase the brotherly bonds made here and increases the size of your network.

    Tips for prospective students

    The tips that I will share is to make sure you come with an open mind because even though this is an HBCU it still has a bit of diversity on the campus. Focus on what you are here for; there are lots of opportunities to have fun but staying focused in your studies is imperative.

    Campus Safety

    Morehouse Police, along with Clark Atlanta Police, make sure that there is never a problem on and around campus. while they do take their jobs seriously, they are also extremely easy to talk to, and can even become your friends. However, do not ever take them lightly, for they are damn good at their jobs.

    Greek Life

    Greeks are everywhere, and they are always bringing life to any program. if you are planning to pledge, then you will find alot of greeks willing to persuade you y=to their brotherhood. and if you go into the school without a single bit of knowledge on greeks, just like i did, you will learn ALOT within the first month and a half Guaranteed!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    there is a program in the beginning of the year that requires you to run around campus at 5 in the morning for the benefit of your growth. i cannot divulge the specifics of this program, but it does teach you alot about the values of being a man of morehouse.

    What to do for fun

    Living in Atlanta, there is never a dull moment. whenever you are not playing in the recreational center or playing on the football field, you are probably going to a party on and off campus. all i can say is, there will be so much happening at once that you might become overwhelmed, but you cannot ever say that there's nothing to do.

    Food and Dining

    at first, the dining experience will be a surprise and will please you, but just as school lunch has always been, you may find yourself getting tired of the cafe. the food quality is always great, and the hours are convenient, and the cafe tries its best to bring variety to the menu, but eventually too much of a good thing gets to be bad.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms provide a clean, sanitary, and comfortable living space for the men of Morehouse. also, one will find themselves becoming closer to the brothers of your dorm, easily acting like one big household. just do your part to keep the place as clean as you found it and all will be well.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes that are seen as academic requirements may or may not challenge you, that solely depends on your current knowledge going into college. however, with this being said, the classed designed for your major are designed to, and efficient in, teaching something new to the students. the work is challenging in many different ways, whether it be the difficulty of the work, the quantity of the work, or both. either way, there is going to be days where you might end up spending hours upon hours in the library.

    Tips for prospective students

    for those who wish to attend the House, i offer small tidbits of advice. first of all, contact the school regularly, get your name known around the faculty, and even try to visit the campus. making friends in high places is highly recommended, in case you need help with...lets say... FUNDING. for those who are planning to attend from outside the state, like myself, i would recommend to learn your way around atlanta, especially the MARTA metro system. it is relatively easy to learn and the MARTA train is closeby the school and takes you just about anywhere in Atlanta. granted, the school's location is slightly isolated, yet close enough to the stores that carry the necessities. Lastly, is you are committed to coming to the school, MAKE YOUR FRESHMAN YEAR COUNT! Take that opportunity to establish a solid GPA (no lower than a 3.5) so you have something to fall back on as time progresses. trust me, it will help to have solid grades your first year. OH, and have fun! it's still college after all.

    Dorm life is EVERYTHING at Morehouse College. The dorm wars, the chants, strolling, stepping, all of it defines your hall. I strolled for my hall, was president of my hall, and managed to put on a few events with my hall council. It doesn't matter where you stay, all that's needed is to put your hall on the map!

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are not overwhelmingly difficult. They are made to challenge you, some more than others. I suggest that if you are a prospective student to do the Pre-Freshman Summer Program. If not that, then have faith in yourself and seek help when you need it,

    Tips for prospective students

    GET SCHOLARSHIPS!! Morehouse is expensive and paying out of pocket can be a burden. I advise not only applying, but once you have applied, check with them and let them know the need that you have to stay at that institution.

    Some of the best experiences I had in life. I lived on campus my freshman year in LLC (Living Learning Center) formally known as Thurman Hall. I was on the step team freshman year. In this dorm two people share one common room, which is typical for any college freshman dorm. My sophmore year, I lived in Morehouse Suites. Here four people lived in one main room but we each had our individual room with a lock on the door. It is located directly beside the newly renovated Woodruff Library.

    Campus Safety

    There is always room for improvement being in the middle of an underserved community. Morehouse has gotten better with their security since the transition of our new president,President Wilson. They have made small efforts like checking for identification for cars that enter campus. It has built more confidence in the students that they are safe. Morehouse has also increased its' security officers. However being in the west end community overall has it's negatives. My advice on that is to just be mindful of who you entertain out side of the college community and be smart in your decisions.

    Bang for the buck

    The Bang for the Buck is the atmosphere of Atlanta. Atlanta is one of many places of that has everything for you to do rather it's' partying, networking, or simply building a foundation for your future. That would also mean coming to Atlanta with a plan sitting idly any where with no plan is as good as building a house with no blueprint. However coming to Morehouse College with a plan and being disciplined enough to carry it through will allow you to experience what the college has to offer. Additionally, the ultimate Bang for your Buck would be leaving with a degree, an array of resources, and life long relationships.

    Residential life is a whole different component of this great institution. Even in residential life Morehouse College challenges you to be a leader, giving you opportunities to get engaged by having a hall executive board to which the students assume responsibility of their own community. There are six freshmen halls. I've had the opportunity of being a resident and resident advisor in two of those halls. As resident I had the opportunity of getting involved in many ways like strolling and being a Vanguard Scholar. As a resident advisor I was able to help and mentor freshmen students as well as stay engaged, playing a part in building the campus community. Your hall is what you make it, there was so many different personalities and lifestyles merged in one environment we are challenged to build relationships and enhance our own community.

Like wise in other departments, as apart of one of our five well's, you are expected to be well balanced. So the majority of professors practice rigor and being conveying effective lessons. I have learned throughout my academic experience as long as you do your part, put in work and build relationships, success is yours. Scholarship is essential component of college.

I have learned and matured throughout my time here at Morehouse College, it has served me well having an open mind and being brave. I would advise students to get involved and don't fall wayside to the ongoing pressures of the college life. Being at Morehouse I have learned so much about myself. One of the biggest thing I have learned and committed myself to, is to advocate for whatever community I am apart of. As an advocate I strongly encourage students to do community service. Time spent giving back to the community is time well spent.

    Tips for prospective students

    As a college junior at Morehouse, I would definitely advise the prospective students to hit their books hard first semester. The biggest thing to learn that first year is time management. if you can balance your social life and academic life (academic time being applied more than social) you will see your hard work paying off those next few years. Also, do not get caught up in the women of Spelman. Trust me, they will have their work done 9 times out of 10 before going out to play. Make sure you follow suit.

    Although times change, Morehouse's mission remains the same: to produce academically superior, morally conscious leaders for the conditions and issues of today. Morehouse is known for preparing young men to change the world. If you feel as if this historic school would be a good fit for you, then I would definitely apply to this great school.

Then one can enjoy the high-speed internet campus wide and watch movies and listen to music.

Also having friends to bond with especially during stressful periods of rigorous work is a definite plus to dorm life at Morehouse.

    Academic Rigor

    The work at this institution is moderate in terms of difficulty. Where it gets challenging however is balancing time especially when there is a party every week. Extracurricular activities have to be balanced and not to mention the newly discovered freedom of parents. Students tend to get lost in the midst of these distractions and fail work that was not close to hard. Thus, time management is strongly encouraged.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students that are considering Morehouse as their decision have already made the right choice by just thinking of attending.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is really safe. Theres nothing more to it. They are apart of the Atlanta Police Department and are highly trained.

    What to do for fun

    You can bring a bike or skateboard or anything that you enjoy doing as long as it is not illegal. You can also have fun with your dorm mates. There are many activities you can participate in on campus.

    Food and Dining

    When residing on campus, you receive the unlimited meal plan. You can literally eat however many times from the time the cafeteria opens until the time the cafeteria closes. The food the cafeteria serves is good. They serve pizza, burgers, french fries, and more.

    Dorm Life

    Living in a dorm on Morehouse Campus is a great experience. The brotherhood in the dorms are way more personal than outside of the dorms. You get to meet several people from all walks of life and you grow a relationship with them. I do not regret living on campus and would encourage any upcoming freshman to reside on campus your freshman year.

    Academic Rigor

    As far as succeeding in the academic portion of college, it is all based upon how much work you put in but also, your professor plays a factor in how difficult the work is. So far, I have been successful in all of my courses and if you work hard to succeed, you will.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you plan to attend Morehouse College, I personally think it would be a great choice for any male of any race.When you come, just plan to be focused, and ready to work hard so you can accomplish more for your future.

    In three sentences

    So far, Morehouse has been a great college to attend. The networking of Morehouse brothers and other AUC students is like no other. Lastly, majority of the staff have their best interest for you to succeed.

    What to do for fun

    Lots of stuff to do. There are various clubs to join, events to attend, and get togethers with people of the same interest. There are even yearly events to display art and skills in spoken word. One cool get together that happens on campus is The Illiterati(Illiterate + rati) Poetry nights on Thursday Nights in Kilgore Cafe that allow people to share poetry, spoken word, and is even a great outlet for up and coming music artist to share their talents with the people attend.

    Food and Dining

    Food is great here. You get a range of $25 to $500 for eateries around Morehouse besides the cafe such as Papa John's, Jazzman's, Freshen's, and the Kilgore Cafe which is across from the main Cafeteria.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is what you make it. For the most part it's really fun. There are dorm competitions every year to determine the best and the most hype hall of the year. There are also stroll teams for each freshman dorm, which takes dorm life and dorm unity to a whole new level. Along with that, there are brother sister freshman dorms. It's to help make it easier to form bonds with girls at Spelman and encourages you to definitely get to make friends and network.

    Academic Rigor

    Gets nitty and gritty when you get into your major classes, but you should have no problem as long as you have a relationship with your major department. Those relationships could go a long way and even effect your grade. The teachers here are understanding and very helpful whether you are struggling in class or need to know the next step in your matriculation through Morehouse College. You can also take classes at Clark Atlanta University and Spelman College to expand your academic horizons even further, especially if there are classes at those institutions that aren't offered at Morehouse College. For example, you can take Japanese at Spelman College to satisfy your language requirement for graduation and learn a language not offered at Morehouse College.

    Tips for prospective students

    You should want to have a grasp of what you want to study, but it is ok to be undecided as they help you by giving you a range of classes that introduces you to each major during your first year. Definitely have a suit or two and a good bit of casual dress clothes because we have a lot of formal events from time to time and it's a tradition to be very well-dressed for certain days. Also, build a network amongst the people not just at Morehouse, but Clark Atlanta University and Spelman College. There are people here of various talents and interests and its in your best interest to try and align yourself with those people. You never know what you could accomplish by having those people close by.

    In three sentences

    Morehouse College is the place to be for African-American males and a great place for other males alike who want to get a great, yet challenging education. The atmosphere is brotherly and your never to far from help. What more could you ask for from the the number two HBCU in America?

    Campus Safety

    Unacceptable. Several students have been robbed on campus during my first year as well as several shot and several more raped. Upperclassmen tell me that robberies were so commonplace last year that a lot were not even reported. Security does not check IDs at the gate, so anybody can get on campus.

    Greek Life

    Greek life basically dominates the social scene here in the AUC. Being Greek is like being part of another world that regular students don't really get to see.

    Clubs and Activities

    You'll have to get out there and look. The clubs are not very visible on campus, except for the biggest few like Glee Club and Marching Band. There's a lot of community service opportunities available around campus.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who don't party much, are very focused on their studies, have a determination and drive to do well, know how to create networks, and can be fairly sociable.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There really is nothing out of the ordinary here, other than how many black people there are.

    Bang for the buck

    If you want a school with good facilities, a good quality of life for on campus students and an efficient bureaucracy that actually cares about the students, look for another school. however, that being said, you will probably learn more about yourself here than at any other school, regardless of your race.

    What to do for fun

    There's nothing to do on the weekends unless you have a car. Most students fall into drug use (marijuana) due to boredom. However, the city of Atlanta offers plenty of engaging activities, but without a car, traveling there can be arduous, rather expensive and somewhat dangerous.

    Food and Dining

    Utter garbage. Even parents who eat the food in the caf agree that it is sub par.

    Dorm Life

    It's a joke. Temperature fluctuates from week to week especially in the winter. Bathrooms are usually dirty and freshman dorms are full of pot dealers and smokers. The RD thinks he is a high school principle and will treat you like a child.

    Academic Rigor

    The first year of classes are just a recap of things you learned in high school. Your interesting classes won't start until sophomore year. But beware of unreasonable or otherwise undesirable professors, as they are numerous.

    Tips for prospective students

    Consider another school before looking at Morehouse.

    In three sentences

    The campus is ugly and not safe. The facilities including the cafeteria, housing, labs, wifi connectivity, and athletic facilities are mediocre at best. General quality of living at Morehouse is low.
