    If you are financially down, love people, want to have a good time and learn all at the same time, you certainly should look into being a Morgan Bear.

    Tips for prospective students

    NETWORK! NETWORK! NETWORK! Morgan State is indeed a HBCU (Historically Black College) but that still does not mean the University is not diverse. This school has many different backgrounds of people coming from all types of life. So a tip from this sophomore, is to get to know people and learn from the different cultures. This advice is not just for Morgan State, but for anywhere you go. A open mind is the best mind. I would also recommend that you have a good communication pathway with your professors. This will help you get through college. Having the professors know who you are, are good for them, since they see you more than a student identification number, but more so as a individual.

    As a freshman in the begining of the fall semester I found a challenge finding how to adapt, but as the semester continued I started to enjoy it more and more and adapting and meeing people became easier.

    The teachers are quite intelligent, witty and know what they are doing. I can't stress enough how important it is to do your work, to do it good and on time.

    compared to other colleges and universities, morgan's tuition, room and board, and other fees are much cheaper. the saying, you get what you buy, does not apply to morgan state at all. although the fees are cheaper than a lot of other universities, you are definitely not getting a cheaper education.

    What to do for fun

    there are a variety of activities students can do for fun. aside from going to parties and clubs, the university hosts many events and activities such as talents shows, fashion shows, spoken words, etc. also, the residence halls offer a variety of events for their residents and guests such as wii nights, movie nights, rap sessions where every gets together and socializes, etc. if you were to ask students at this university what they can do for fun here, they will tell you that at morgan state university, there is always something to do!

    Food and Dining

    like every campus, food and dining is not perfect at morgan state university there are two main cafeterias, the refractory hall and the cafeteria in the student center. both places offer a variety of foods and a setting where students have the opportunity to sit back and do whatever they please. many times, students go into the dining halls to eat and socialize because the setting is comfortable. i would say that the food has it's ups and downs as any place that serves food does. but mostly, the food is delicious and always has me coming back for more, especially on fried chicken wednesdays!

    Dorm Life

    they say you meet all kinds of people when you go to college. living in a residence hall with all females has given me the opportunity to reach out and befriend many people, from all over the country. not only has my residence hall connected as one big family, but we have also gained a relationship with the other residence halls. all the residence halls have a unique relationship with each other and everyone is always striving to represent their residence hall because of how proud they are to live their. morgan state dorm and residence life is truly unique and special and i would definitely encourage anyone who has chosen to attend morgan to live on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    morgan state university has set fine standards and expectations for their students and faculty. since morgan state is one of the most well known hbcus in the state, they strive to ensure their students are doing their best academically and their faculty is doing their best to ensure that they are supporting their students on their path to a degree. from my experience, the faculty at morgan always takes the time to speak with me personally when i need to discuss grades, questions or any concerns in my classes. the faculty at morgan really go out of their way to create a personal relationship with their students to ensure that the students feel comfortable to come to them when in need and guide us. morgan state is excellent in setting standards and expectations for their students and faculty and is well deserving of our outstanding reputation as an hbcu.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always make sure to get a variety of opinions on schools. You make hear that a school is good or bad but everyone always has different opinions. Also, check out different activities and programs that the school may have that interests you. You never want to go to a school without fully knowing that it is the right one for you!

    In three sentences

    For the past 2 years of attending Morgan State University, I have noticed myself changing for the better. Morgan has helped guide me to better decisions academically and also socially.

    Students who want to receive a good education. Also for those who want to have opportunities to network with peers, faculty, and other prestigious individuals.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always remember you are in school to receive your education. SCHOOL MUST COME FIRST!! There will be plenty of time for social activities and part time jobs AFTER you have completed your school work.

    In state tuition is not too expensive but of course it would be better if it was free :)

    Your college experience will be a much better one if you go in with a positive attitude and continue to have it. Some days you will get home sick but for the most part it really is a good place to be.

    Am learning a lot

    As each semester passes I find that what i have learned in the previous semesters build a foundation for what I am currently learning. If you actually read your textbook you will find that your understanding of the lectures will be much greater.

    Great for these types of students

    MSU is good for African American students looking to pursue engineering, students that are looking for a HBCU experience in the state of Maryland, and for students that are looking for a thriving party scene to release tension during college.

    Tips for prospective students

    1. It is probably better to take Math 113 and Math 114 instead of ENGR 101. 2. Take a medium course load during the first semester of your freshman year. It'll give you some time to get used to the environment. 3. Know yourself well enough to pick classes at times that work for you. Don't pick 8 am classes if you hate early mornings and don't pick night classes if you like your evenings free. 4. Pick friends that encourage you to study and want you to succeed. Good friends will help you get through college. 5. Talk to your advisor! They will help you do what you need to do in order to graduate on time. 6. Talk to upperclassman, they'll tell you which teachers to take and which ones to avoid!

    Bang for the buck

    The engineering program at Morgan State is a really good program and my sole purpose for attendance. I do have one class that had a lack of organization that is potentially hurting the class as a whole in the long run. For the most part, the education that I'm getting is acceptable.

    Am enjoying being here

    I'm not really enjoying MSU. There is a lot of violence surrounding the campus and that's not something I'm used to. I'm also not much of a partier and that seems to be the activity of choice here. The school is not in walking distance of any other activities for the most part, unless you count Towson Mall which is accessible by the public transportation system.

    Am learning a lot

    While I am learning here at Morgan State, I can't say that the level of education is actually challenging. Emerging from an intense pre-engineering program , Project Lead The Way, the level of difficulty at Morgan is lacking the intensity I believed I would find on the college level.

    Morgan is great for those wanting to attend an HBCU and for those looking to attend a school where the teachers all want to see you succeed and are willing to help you in any way that they can.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get everything (housing, financial aid, etc) taken care of as soon as possible. You don't want to find yourself scrambling at the last minute; it creates too much of a headache. ASK QUESTIONS. You will never know unless you do. Make the effort to get to know your professors. Contrary to popular belief, they are not as hard-nosed as they appear to be. Schedule your classes wisely. If you are not a morning person, don't schedule an 8 AM class. You're college experience is what you make it. Get to know people, but at the same time know whether or not the people you meet will help or hinder your progress.

    Bang for the buck

    Out of state tuition can definitely be a pain, but with scholarships I am able to go to school here for next to nothing. The Honors Department is willing to work with you to ensure that your college experience is not filled with financial worries.

    Am enjoying being here

    I am a member of various student organizations, and each one gives me something to do with my free time. I do not go to parties at all, and these organizations allow me to use my time wisely.

    Am learning a lot

    Along with the education I am receiving in the classroom, being so far away from home gives me the opportunity to really grow up. I have learned so much about myself in the year and a half that I have been here. I value the lessons I am learning while on this campus.

    Engineering Majors

    Tips for prospective students

    If you plan on majoring in a science, I do no think this is the best college choice. The science department has changed the way labs are done, from using the lab manual to figuring it out on your own based on a minimal information.

    I Love My School! Everyone makes Morgan seem like a bad school because of its city, but it is all the opposite. Morgan offers lots of scholarships, and major programs. The professors are very helpful and understanding. There are also tutoring services and labs on campus for students 24/7. Morgan is also known as a party school, that is not true at all. As long as you follow through with your responsibilities, keep your grades up, and balance your time all of the activities on and off campus will not effect you. Go Bears!!!

    Definitely worth it for in-state students, not so sure about out-of-state students. If you have a good enough GPA, try getting into the Honors Program. Their standards are high, but the full scholarship is definitely worth the work.

    Despite being one of the few white students at an HBCU, I am quite comfortable. I have found no one who has been racist towards me, though I often get the question Why did you decide to come to Morgan?

    Tips for prospective students

    To be grounded and know that it is okay to not know. Its okay to be somewhere and not know what you want to do for the rest of your life. Just live and learn that college will take you to a place where you will learn just exactly what it means to be passionate about life and your future. DONT BE AFRAID.

    For the amount you pay to go to Morgan some things are pricey, but the University is working on that situation to make the university more affordable to the students. So its a working progress.

    Campus Safety

    campus is pretty safe, however; baltimore city is home to a lot of crime and morgan is located next to a few areas where crime is predominant. since we are an open campus students do have to be careful during certain hours of the night. however, there is a very significant and visible police force, and there is even a mobile alert system in place. in general most students feel very safe.

    Greek Life

    morgan state has a thriving greek life in which all of the divine nine original hbcu fraternities and sororities are flourishing. the highest numbers are in deltas, akas, kappas, omegas, and sigmas. there are also band, social, and other greek organizations. the various groups hold many on campus events from open mics and parties to scholarly luncheons.

    Clubs and Activities

    everyone will find something to do at morgan state. there are fashion clubs, sports clubs, art and film clubs, as well as the knowledgebowl club. aside from the extra curricular there are clubs focused on academics such as finance and accounting clubs. on campus there is a theater for movies, a gym for working out and recreation, practice fields for sports, and there is also a game room. these areas are frequented by students, but most students choose the sporting events as their main source of fun.

    Great for these types of students

    students that want to try a new environment an get in touch with their culture. great for accountants, business majors in general, engineering majors, and philosophy majors to name a few. its also good for students who are outgoing because there are lots of opportunities.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    the promethean procession involves freshmen students carrying lit candles across campus. while this goes on upperclassmen try to blow out the student's flames. once across campus students count the number of times their candle has to be re-lit and this signifies the number of years they will spend at morgan.

    Bang for the buck

    morgan graduates are hired at greater rates every year. morgan is one of the top four universities in terms of graduates that go on to earn a ph.d. there are many grants and scholarships based on need and merit as well. the major bang for the buck factor is noticed mostly after graduation when employers and graduate schools notice the weight and prestige that morgan brings.

    What to do for fun

    baltimore is a college town, and there is a lot to do for fun. baltimore collegetown is an organization that passes out pamphlets each year on what's trendy in the college scene. they also run a bus service that students can use to get to some of the attractions in baltimore. on offer is the baltimore harbor which has an aquarium, numerous concert venues, great eateries, and many bars for the seniors. there are also $5 friday night student games to support our beloved orioles. other sports fans can watch the ravens play or get involved in the numerous sports leagues around the city.

    Food and Dining

    students in dorms are required to have a meal plan for the two on campus cafeterias. the food is hit or miss, to be honest. the rawlings dining hall is the major cafeteria and offers options of two different hot entres, a burger and deli section, a salad bar, pizza line, cereal funnels, waffle makers, and beverages. we are sponsored by thompson hospitality who also work at towson and other maryland schools.

    Dorm Life

    dorm life at morgan is going through a few changes. there are currently four male residence halls and 2 female residence halls. most are old stone establishments that have been renovated. a focus is being made in fully renovating all dorms, adding full campus wi-fi, as well as beautifying the campus. morgan also offers off campus housing in adjacent apartment complexes owned by the school. these are usually more sought after for upperclassmen. the campus community is very neighborly and friendly. eventually students come to feel a home on campus as you get to know everyone.

    Academic Rigor

    as an honors student in the earl g. graves school of business and management i can attest to the rigors of academia at morgan. there is a steady course load in each class with focus on cognitive participation from students, not call and answer teaching. there are usually multiple tests and quizzes in a course as well as the midterm and final. most classes also involve a term paper or project to further test your knowledge. a multimedia approach is standard, and most classes will utilize blackboard which is an online web module that allows teaches to post assignments and videos online.

    Tips for prospective students

    when considering morgan look into applying for university honors scholarships these scholarships require you to maintain a minimum gpa of 3.0 while taking at least 15 honors credits, but they pay considerable amounts of money towards tuition to augment soaring college costs. another tip for prospective students is to consider what morgan can offer in their major. the earl g. graves school of business and management and the school of engineering enroll the most students. lastly, visit campus! take a tour, come on an unofficial visit, stop by, you should literally do all you can to acclimate yourself to campus and campus culture to make sure morgan is the place for you before your first week of orientation.

    In three sentences

    morgan state university, founded in 1867, is a prestigious historically black university (hbcu). located in baltimore, maryland, the university is known for producing some of the most highly talented minority businessmen and engineers in today's work force. it is definitely a valued university and is held in the highest esteem among educators and employers alike.

    Even though alot of work is due online , you have to go to class!! , thats where I began to mess up. During the middle of the semester the library becomes the hang out spot, don't go with friends!,and don't study in the common areas. The class room sizes aren't huge so you can get that one on one attention if your not to embarrassed to ask for it and learn your professors office hours!

    Tips for prospective students

    It's very easy to get side tracked with all the activities and parties going on, get your studying in during the day so you can participate without distractions. Must stay on top of your finical Aid! because Morgan offices are extremely crowded and behind on deadlines.

    Academic Rigor

    Academically, the professors hold all of it's students to a high level of achievement and if a student studies and reviews course material on a consistent basis, they will be successful. If not, the student will find Morgan's curriculum to be hard to maintain.

    My tips to prospective students would be to study hard, not to procrastinate and to develop a close relationship with the counselors and advisors on campus.

    The campus of Morgan State university has linked up with The College town shuttle that takes students to places such as Towson Mall, the Baltimore Inner Harbor and to nearby Universities free of charge. Located a a block from campus is a peaceful getaway by the name of Lake Montebello.

    Food and Dining

    Dorm Life

    The dorms on campus are newly furnished with wood frames; which means alot coming from my freshman year when we had ugly metal furnishings.

    Campus Safety

    Campus Security does the best they can. We haven't had any big incidents on campus so the police do, do their job. The officers on campus are very friendly and helpful as well.

    Greek Life

    The Greeks are all cool people, they also help out around the campus whether it be serving at the Cafeteria or cleaning up. Each frat has their own personalities. They are very fun people to meet with.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are allot of clubs to be apart of, you just have to search for the one that your most interested in. Each club has there own set of activities some of them might do during the weeks that school is in. But its all about finding the club that fits you and interests you the most because each club is fun and is a learning experience in some way of life.

    Great for these types of students

    If you like diversity, then you would love Caribbean week. If you are interested in Greek Life then you would enjoy going to the probates. If you enjoy helping the community then you would love the Community Service Clean ups that the school has.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Usually at dinner time the Refac (cafeteria) is the place to go when its time to eat because its a buffet style. Unusual locations to hangout would be outside in the middle of campus outside of the dorm named Cummings, when the sun is out and its a good day. Another place to hang out would be around the practice field. For some reason people like to walk around and hang out there..

    Bang for the buck

    There are certain things that can be approved upon, and certain things you shouldn't have to buy because of how much tuition costs now. Other than that its a well spent investment

    What to do for fun

    I met some friends and together we created a dance crew on campus. I also go for walks and you can also catch the collegetown shuttle either downtown or up to Towson; which is where the closest Mall is. I also go to the different events held on campus.

    Food and Dining

    The food is adequate at Morgan. I wish they had more of a variety but you will enjoy it. The desserts are always good and breakfast on Sundays are great. But beware, if you don't know what it is I advice you not to eat allot of it.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm Life is amazing. You meet great people and everybody creates great experiences with each other. Each dorm has a different atmosphere but its all positive.

    Academic Rigor

    It really depends on the teachers and the major of your choice. If you love what you do then it doesn't seem hard, its enjoyment. Just know how to manage your time.

    Campus Safety

    Robberies and violence do occur on campus, but it only happens to kids wondering around at three and five in the morning up. The Campus is between Morgans police department and Baltimore's police department so nothing Major ever happens.

    Greek Life

    All the major ones are on campus and active. you do have to have a 2.5 in order to pledge.

    Clubs and Activities

    Any club you can think of is on this campus and if you don't see one you'd like they welcome you to start it.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who want to get away, focus on studies, learn more about there race and be prepared to give back to community after graduating.

    Bang for the buck

    your getting exactly what you paid for by coming to Morgan. A good education, a place to meet new people from around the world and a chance to get away from your parents.

    What to do for fun

    There is always a talent show, spoken word, open mic, game night or seminar going on around campus. There is also a free college shuttle that takes you to neighboring colleges, the mall and downtown Baltimore to see the sights. Of course there are parties... lots of parties.

    Food and Dining

    The food will taste great for the first month but after that its awful. There are a lot of carry out places in the area that deliver but not many choice for a healthy diet.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms aren't all that great but there is a brand new state of the art library and student center so students really don't stay in there dorms at all. They are visitation rules in place that prevent anyone from staying over night or past 10pm on weekdays and 12am on weekends.

    Academic Rigor

    The education really prepares you for your career and the professors will actually take the time to get to know you and help you during office hours. The only way you can really fail a class is to sit there and do nothing.

    Tips for prospective students

    Dont be afraid to ask for help or get stuck out at all the parties around campus. That is the easiest way to fail at this University. Help is only given to those who ask for it and every party is the biggest party so its cool to miss a few and just study.

    In three sentences

    Morgan State is an HBCU that gives those who have the desire to learn an opportunity to do at a decent cost. The education is top notch, and the smaller classes give you a chance to learn and apply material to your life instead of memorizing and repeating to pass an exam. It would be a lie to say its the best college/university in the world but if you make it through matriculation at Morgan you can make it anywhere.

    Campus Safety

    The campus can sometimes be unsafe however the school has reduced the amount of unsafe actions immensely by placing security at every main part of campus. Now this doesn't mean you should go out at 4 am to walk the dog, but you'll be safe before, during, and after class. They even have special security when we have events such as parties.

    Greek Life

    We have every Greek letter organization apart of the Divine Nine except for Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. We also have Independent sororities and fraternities like Phi Mu Alpha, Tau Beta Sigma, Sigma Alpha Iota, Swing Phi Swing, Groove Phi Groove, etc.I am also apart of Alpha Nu Omega Sorority incorporated and we would love for anyone to come to our events!

    Clubs and Activities

    There are too many activities and clubs to even name, but a specific one that's close to my heart is the National Council of Negro Women also known as NCNW is an organization of organizations and we were established Ms. Mary McLeod Bethune and Ms. Dorothy Irene Height! We would love for any and all women to join!

    Great for these types of students

    We are great for all kinds of students. There is literally a group/ organization for every type of person. And if there's something you're interested in that doesn't already exist you can create your own group. You only need 5-10 students and an advisor!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We don't have any really.

    Bang for the buck

    MORGAN I SO INEXPENSIVE. In an article written this year (2013), Morgan State University was voted number 4 on the top 10 schools that you get the bang for your buck. In state students only pay about $3500 per semester. If you live on campus of course the price goes up and they force you to have a meal plan (which can suck at times). However of campus housing at the apartments in Morganview has a full kitchen and its a little expensive but worth it. I now live off campus in an apartment right around the corner from the school and it is awesome!

    What to do for fun

    There's a mall right up the street, everyone loves to shop there. The 3 bus goes there. The same 3 going in the opposite direction goes straight downtown to the Inner Harbor where's there's lots of eateries, shops, movie theatres, and museums. There are, of course, parties on campus. A lot of organizations have events during the week and weekend so you'll never be bored. And if you are that means you can be doing something productive like reading for class or homework lol.

    Food and Dining

    The food is only ok. I don't eat on campus very much anymore. It was GREAT when I was a freshman because the re-factory is like all-you-can-eat dining but that how you gain that Freshman 15 or sometimes 50!! lol. But the deli on main campus is much better and has many healthy choices. Sadly those are the only two food choices that you can use meal plans for but we also have a Subway on campus, and many other restaurants that are very close by. No matter if you are walking or driving.

    Dorm Life

    I lived on campus for 4 years and I definitely can say it is a roller coaster! You will have those roommates that you know will be your friend for life and others you wish would just move away. Take it all in and learn from those experiences because they definitely help with your social skills. And being put under pressure when it comes to other people.

    Academic Rigor

    The school work isn't necessarily hard as it is in having a lot of it (quantity). I am a Transportation and Urban Infrastructure Engineering Major so my work load is much more vast than some one who is maybe a sociology major, but each major has its ups and downs. The favorite professors and the ones we wish would retire! But just keep your head up and talk to other people who've been there before. Don't be ashamed to get a tutor! Everyone in college should be trying to achieve, so keep that as your main objective.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be sure to have copies of EVERYTHING! If it's one thing that I don't like about my school it's that they lose things very quickly. So just be on top of your paperwork and you'll be fine! Also don't get caught up in the distractions that surround the school. A lot of people party and do extra curricular activities, but you MUST remember that you came to college to earn a degree. That should be your focus from the beginning until the end. Also, don't burn any bridges with professors. You never know if they'll be teaching you again or if you may need a recommendation letter from them for whatever reason. It doesn't hurt to be humble an apologize if you've ever done something wrong. Its always worth it in the end.

    In three sentences

    I LOVE MY HBCU!!!! We're full of spirit, fun, and life! I hope everyone comes to Morgan!

    Campus Safety

    It's kinda like being in a hood you have to just be alert and watch you surroundings because it is a open campus.

    Greek Life

    I don't really know much of greek life, but from what I understand you have to be dedicated to it and pretty much know what you wanna do when you first get there.

    Clubs and Activities

    These really help you get involved in the school, meet new people, and adjust to being away from home

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The only shopping complex within walking distance is the Northwood complex which has nothing in it, but they do have a bus that can take you to Towson mall...if your willing to wait for it

    Bang for the buck

    I think the school could give and do a little more, but it's bearable.

    What to do for fun

    Morgan is somewhat of a party school (if you know the right people) so try to be very social and meet people because it will definitely help when people are deciding who to text about the house parties.

    Food and Dining

    There are not alot of options as far on campus dining, and the food is not that good. The hours are also less than satisfactory ending around 8pm so no late dinners.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm rooms are about average, but try not to bring to much stuff because it can get very cramped before you know it so pack light you can also go to Towson mall to get more stuff. But I will say that the dorm RA's are bull and don't even do there jobs, so if you have a problem don't even bother going to them cuz it will be a waste of time.

    Academic Rigor

    The teachers are very serious about there jobs, and you will have to work to pass all of your classes. But they do understand that it is somewhat of a party school so they are willing to work with you every now and then.

    Tips for prospective students

    It is best to try and get involved in some type of club or team, because Morgan is a very social school and can help you adjust to being in a new environment.

    In three sentences

    i would say that you get what you pay for, no it is not the best school but it is very possible to make the best of it and have it work for you.

    Definitely true. Professors are there to help, so don't be afraid to ask. Faculty at Morgan will make sure you leave out of there with an education.

    Morgan is an urban campus, so whatever your heart desires you can do.

    Food and Dining

    The refact has its good days and its bad days, but you will still be full when you leave. Canteen is good to go to when your just tired of refact food, plus we have Auntie Anne's now.

    Dorm Life

    Overall, unsafe at night because police do not do what they are supposed to.

    Academic Rigor

    Like every other college, you will have to study to do well.

    I recommend future students to be prepared for the party life but always have your academic goals in site.

    To be honest there is always a *Crime Alert* E-mail or text, however most of them are minor. But I will say be aware of your surroundings. The police site is on campus so they always respond to any situation quickly.

    Food and Dining

    The food is pretty basic. Its the same thing every week. You can chose from the Canteen or the Re-fac, in which Fried Chicken Wednesdays are the best. There is also an Auntie Anne's on campus as well as Mcdonalds and Sunny's across the street.

    Dorm Life

    If dorm life is for you, than okay. The dorm life can be fun, there is always something to do and if you have a good roommate its better. It can get a little messy even though the cleaning lady cleans everyday.

    Academic Rigor

    Academics are okay for the most part at Morgan State University. There are some professors that are easy to work with and there are some professors that are not. However, there is always help around campus, use your resources wisely!

    Tips for prospective students

    I would say don't walk around at night time by yourself, just because you are in Baltimore City. As well as don't get in the mix of too much partying which i hard to do. Maintain stability, and do not procrastinate, it will get the best of you.

    Morgan states campus is working effortlessly hard on improving the safety of others. the environment on campus has improved within a year with lighting on campus and the amount of patrol officers. Because of the recent shootings on campus, Morgan is in effort for a huge change on knowing the difference of Morgan students and non Morgan students.

Morgan is what you make it which simply means that Morgan has so much to offer. organizations that give so much opportunities of events to attend and activities to do, for myself i'm in multiple organizations that keep me active and have me doing stuff almost every night.

    Food and Dining

    At Morgan State University has Thompson hospitality as their caterer for the food services on the campus. the food that Thompson hospitality is getting better than in the past a lot of variety is being offered which is making students more happy especially with them paying money for it.

    Dorm Life

    Dormitories at MSU are nice, they could use much improvements but that is what students are fighting for right now, we fight for change a lot here at Morgan State University. The dormitories give you what any other school would give you, a bed a dresser and a desk which is what is the main necessities in a dorm room.

    Academic Rigor

    The work load at Morgan is challenging which is good for students attending a HBCU because outsiders always believe that African Americans always want the easy way out. That stereotype is not true, because we work as hard as any predominately white institute around the country.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students that plan to attend Morgan State University (MSU), need to have the drive to do better than before. Students that decide to come here should be aware that MSU is an open campus in the city of Baltimore. MSU is a great environment where even though it is a HBCU there are multiple diverse people here at the institution that make the experience one of a kind.

    In three sentences

    Campus Safety

    Someone gets robbed every week. This semester there were 2 shootings. It's not the safest campus, but Hey! it is in the Urban/City area of Baltimore, so what do you expect. Morgan does do a good job at informing students and loved ones through text and email if something does happen on campus that might threaten the safety of the school.

    Great for these types of students

    They have a lot of fun school activities throughout the semester and you can also find parties on and off campus. The only time it's every really boring is on the weekends when a lot of people go home.

    Food and Dining

    The food could definitely be better especially for all the money we have to pay for it. I don't know anyone who actually enjoys it. Be careful at the dining halls because you may see a mouse crawling around either on the floor or on the table.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are as good as they are going to get.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the teachers want you to just get by and give out a lot of extra credit and may slack, while other teachers will be hard on you and strict. They do have a lot of places designated for study and tutoring though.

    Morgan has a lot of opportunities on and off campus, I would say to take advantage of them all. Take advantage of all the speakers they have, the organizations, the workshops, and the people. Network yourself.

    What to do for fun

    There are many things to do for fun at Morgan State. You can join a club, do intramural sports, go to on campus parties, explore the city of Baltimore, etc.

    Food and Dining

    The food at Morgan State is decent, but I wish it had more variety. There are only two main eating locations, the cafeteria and the canteen. The canteen doesn't give students a lot of food, which is not desirable for someone who likes to eat a lot. The cafeteria is all you can eat, but they fix the same food items often which makes it less desirable.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are decent; however, there are no single dorm rooms except for the ones at Morgan View which are very expensive. This is a negative in my opinion because I like to have my own space and Morgan doesn't really have many options for that.

    Tips for prospective students

    College is a big step and should be taken very seriously. Unlike high school, no one is going to tell you what classes to take, when to take those classes, remind you about assignments, etc. In college, your treated like an adult and your responsible for your education, so make sure you stay focus and you will do well.

    In three sentences

    Morgan State is a great school if your planning to obtain a degree in engineering. Morgan state is in a decent area and the police station is right next to the university. Morgan State professors are very helpful if you show them that you are interested and serious about your education.

    The security on campus is good. At night they have campus escorts to help you feel safe walking to and from your location

    Greek Life

    The Greek Life here is great. Some of the chapters here show more of a brotherhood and sisterhood though. The step shows are always good to watch, and a lot of times you will walk to class or to the student centers and here one of the Divine Nine say their call.

    What to do for fun

    During the week there is always and event taking place in the student center. Many of the organizations on campus, both Greek and non- Greek, have meetings and specific weeks where they have several events every day (i.e. church service, and maybe a talent show later on in the week).

    Food and Dining

    The food is healthy, but often times the food selection is repetitive. For example in the canteen (the food court in the student center), the food choices do not change for lunch and dinner, but the FOCUS program here at Morgan is working towards getting better vendors so that we may have more of a variety to our food choices.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is exceptional. For example, the proper sanitation level is below par for some of the residents in the dorm. After your first semester, however, you have the option of moving off campus so you may meet your sanitation needs

    Academic Rigor

    The academics here are very rigorous. Often times you have some easy courses to help balance out your work load.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure that you thoroughly look into this great university. This school is most praised for its Engineering, Business, and Fine Arts Program. If you are a fashion, nursing or psychology major, I wouldn't advise you to enroll here because you may not be satisfied because those types of majors aren't highly praised here.

    Morgan State University is a very diverse school and has an excellent Electrical Engineering and Business Program. The outside sources for success in your matriculation through college is available and welcoming. The major downfall to this wonderful university is the funding and school spirit.

    The food in the refac makes my stomach hurt. We need better stores on campus to buy food from other than subway.

    Dorm Life

    I haven't stayed on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The courses are fairly challenging however if you attend class and make it a priority to go to your professors office hours, the work gets a little easier.

    Tips for prospective students

    Stay involved! With your advisor, your professor, your entire school in fact., should have a good knowing of what you're about. Stay focused because it's a lot of parties so don't get distracted from completing that paper due the next day.

    In three sentences

    It's filled with professor who want you to learn and become successful. Morgan always has some event going on that reaches or to student and teaches about life. This institution can mold you into a better person if you're willing to take those steps.

    What to do for fun

    The campus alone has a movie theater and game room. It has so many things to do that you wouldn't necessarily have to leave to have fun. Morgan has this club type room that has pool and such. Not to mention that the Orioles baseball field is not far.

    In three sentences

    The campus is beautiful. The buildings were fresh and modern. The library has to be one of the best libraries I've seen. Someone told me that they have actually slept in there because its so beautiful and comfortable.

Students have the right to decide on what kind of meal plan they want depending on if someone is living on/off campus.

    Dorm Life

    Living in dorms have both positives and negatives. It is up to the student to make the positives and best out of it. The dorms are well cleaned and ventilated, students have choice to decide on what meal plan they want. Dorm life is very fun and I would recommend for all incoming freshmen because it boost students social life and make them feel comfortable with the environment.

    Greek Life

    Always fun to watch them step randomly on campus.

    What to do for fun

    There are always parties going on! Also activites done by organizations almost every day for one to attend.

    Food and Dining

    There are two places to eat on campus, the male dormitory named Rawlings and the student center. The food in Rawlings is okay, but there are many options and is a buffet style eating. It is usually different everyday. But it does have cereal, pizza, fruit, salad everyday for you to choose from. Comes in handy when you are really hungry. In the student center, its the same basics such as pizza, chicken and fries, sandwiches and salad. then they have food that looks amazingly good but isn't covered by your meal plan and cost usually about 8 dollars.

    Dorm Life

    The Rawlings building is the males dorm so I don't know what its like. But I don't believe they have visitation. The female dorm is called Blount and they also do not have visitation either. I only know the Thurgood Marshall Apartment style living, which I believe can be the best or the worst. There Is 8 females or males to an apartment. 2 bathrooms and 1 kitchen. Barley and rules are enforced. But there are 8 different personalities to deal with and 8 different habits. It can be either good by being clean, fun environment or bad by being incredibly dirty and clashing personalities making your time terrible.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes are really hard, depending on the class and teacher. But for me the classes can be anything you make it. Most teachers are willing to work with you when you need help or extra help.

    Tips for prospective students

    Stay on top of financial aid with your paper work and things they need to process. Try and stay in organizations to be occupied with people who have the same goals as you. When it comes to books, ask around to see who has them first and try to buy them off of them first.

    In three sentences

    Takes getting use to at first, but once you become involved in organizations and programs you will really enjoy yourself. The people are very friendly and welcoming. The financial aid is a battle though, you must stay on top of them.

    Campus Safety

    People do get robbed because Morgan has an open campus and its in the city of Baltimore. I have a couple friends who live out there so I know it won't be much if a problem but I do know that people get robbed because of how open the campus is. DO NOT walk alone outside take a large group of people with you because even having one or two friends could be a possible threat.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    It is an HBCU, so the chants and songs that we do are unusual for me seeing as how I have never had to do anything like that. Not really any unusual locations on campus because I have not seen the entire campus completely yet.

    Bang for the buck

    Morgan really is an awesome school. Most of the upperclassmen give great advice and of course you can learn from your own experiences how wonderful the school really is.

    What to do for fun

    TURN UP!!! But no for my orientation we ran around our residence hall playing building tag and we stayed up and talked and laughed and just had fun for the most part. People really just need to open up and let the free feeling flow because your experience won't be as good if you decide to sit back and not interact with your peers.

    Food and Dining

    The food is not so terrible. It all depends on what you like and how open you are to try new things.

    Dorm Life

    The school is very old but I love the dorms because of the amount of space you can create. I have just returned home from the four day orientation and I was absolutely in love. The elevators don't all work all the time but its a great place. Morgan State actually has residence halls not dorms so that was a bit of a shock to me. I will be staying in the main female dorm called Blount and so far it has been nothing but good tales.

    Academic Rigor

    I haven't exactly got into the school yet as a student but I do have friends in the summer program called CASA and it seems pretty moderate to me. I don't typically know how hard some of the classes are or how much work the professors give but I do know that it seems like a great atmosphere.

    Tips for prospective students

    School is what you make it. Don't let the upperclassmen scare you into believing that you won't have fun and that you aren't cool enough. I have met tons of people so far and for the most part everybody has been so cool and I am well known is my class.

    In three sentences

    Morgan State University has been so wonderful to me so far. I have met so many people and it truly feels like a family. I have never felt more at home than I do at Morgan State University

    What to do for fun

    We are in the city of Baltimore so it is plenty to do if you're trying to do something off campus. On campus, I am not really sure because school hasn't started yet.

    Food and Dining

    The food is not the best but it is certain meals you will enjoy. Plus we do have a Subway on campus but it is not included in your meal plan.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is a great experience that you should at least try for 1 year in your college experience. It gives you that chance of living away from home and gives responsibilities you will need in the future.

    Academic Rigor

    This is what you make it. Some professors are better than others so ratemyprofessors.com is a very good source to help you find the right one for you.

    Campus Safety

    Watch your back at Morgan. Although I have not been robbed, threatened, or put in an unsafe situation in my past 3 years at Morgan, I receive at least one crime report a night of someone that has. Be alert, be smart, and be safe. Dont forget you are in a new space, and people will take advantage, not just here but everywhere. Be cognizant of your surroundings, and make sure you are not walking around alone at odd hours.

    Greek Life

    Greek life is the peak of most HBCUs we have the whole NPHC divine 9 at Morgan state. Only Greek that is currently on suspension is the Zeta sorority.

    Clubs and Activities

    The clubs and activities at Morgan are on point. There are several clubs for each and every person, topic, belief, you name it Morgan has it. And if it does not exist, you can be the first one to start it up!

    Great for these types of students

    Morgan is great for extroverts, open minded people, people who are looking to find a greater them, People who are ready to meet life long friends, people who are success oriented, and people looking to gain a higher knowledge of their own or a new culture.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Cool spots people like to kick it would be the baseball field, murphys fine art building is where I liked to hang out because they have about 10 sound proof rooms with grand pianos which is heaven for a music lover. Also in front of soper library is a cool spot where people hang out.

    Bang for the buck

    To me all colleges are too expensive and I will never be satisfied with what I get in comparison to the money I am paying. However, puting all of that aside, Morgan I believe is on a 3 out of 5 bang for the buck.

    What to do for fun

    Campus life at morgan is what you make it. I hear several people claim its boring and several people claim its the best HBCU. There are several things to do on capus you jsut have to find them. For instance joining an organization provides you with things to do. Organizations host events in the student center DAILY. There is a game room where people hang out, play pool, play card/ board games, commune, etc. There are parties, kick backs, people hang out on the yard, greeks stomp all over campus, theres a basketball court that has open gym + a pool. We also have a shuttle bus (free) that takes Morgan students to towson or john hopkins if thats more your speed! So I believe Morgan is what you make it.

    Food and Dining

    I dont not recommend eating on campus, the food is repetitive, its not good, and 9/10 it give s people the runs. There is a subway across campus, a carryout, mcdonalds and Sunny's across the street, and several businesses that deliver. Take advantage of those or a friends place with an oven to cook your own food.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life at Morgan is extremely expensive, however I recommend atleast living on campus for your freshman year because it is a great experience. Living on campus allows you to be around to participate in several activities thrown in the dorms or around campus, it is convenient for making it to class on time, and its a great community. I recommend getting off campus after that though, because the 8,000 per year strictly for housing and room and board is crazy when there are places across the street for less than half that price.

    Academic Rigor

    Although people believe that schools that are Ivy league are better solely because of the name, I find that to be false after attending Morgan state. The work load is heavy (depending on the teacher), but due to the intimate classrooms, it is easier to get help from the teacher. In addition, the faculty at Morgan state wants to see their students succeed, so there are several systems in place which allow for this to happen. Some of these being: Extra credit opportunities, make up dates, tutoring, extended office hours, and much more. The work at MSU is not just busy work, but usually catered towards your major and how you will use this in the outside world.

    Tips for prospective students

    I advise people that come to this school to come in with an open mind. If you are not used non diverse background you might suffer a culture shock. However, this school being a HBCU places a whole new culture inside you.

    In three sentences

    Morgan state would overall rate a 7 out of 10. This rating is based on education, social life, safety, organizations, and overall experience.

    There is a police station on campus and police officers walking around but it could be a little safer. You can call a number so a police officer can walk you back to your dorm if you are to scared to talk alone.

    The food could be better but you get use to eat so you eat it all the time. There are also a lot of places that deliver to Morgan and even some fast food restaurants in walking distance that you can go to.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is pretty cool. You get to meet new people and you feel old because your mom and father is not around but it grows you up a lot because you have to adapt to other peoples way of living, and learn how to compromise.

    Academic Rigor

    At Morgan State University the deans, and professors are really about their academics and put the students first and want to get the best out of every student.

    Tips for prospective students

    The first tip I will give prospective students is to put there studies first because it is easy at any college to fall behind because its a new experience and you want to be involved in everything and once you fall behind its hard to get back on track. The next tip I will give students is to learn how to mange your time wisely, time management is the key to college school student survival.

    In three sentences

    I give Morgan State University four stars. They have a lot of opportunities for there students and if students take full advantage of them then they can set their life up to become successful. Other then academics. campus life is good there is always something to do or somewhere to go to have fun.

    There are many things to do for fun, such as joining clubs and activity all over campus. I joined the Lacrosse club and fell in love with the sport and developed a passion, for the game.

    Food and Dining

    I was dissapointed with the Food and Dining at Morgan State, there was never any variety in the food selection it always seemed to repeat itself which became very boring, and not that much appealing

    Dorm Life

    The Dorm Life needs great improvement, But that all comes from funding from the school, the dorm life can be greatly improved because my experience of the dorm life at Morgan State was not the best experience.

    Academic Rigor

    Academic Rigor is pretty fair.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would tell all prospective students, that always plan ahead and develope a schedule with all of their daily plans, so they can become more organized

    The divine 9 are on campus. If interested then go for it.

    A few popular clubs are the National Council of Negro Women, International Students Association, Caribbean Students Association etc.

    There are many clubs and societies for both males and females who host events on a weekly basis. There are also many sports teams which you could be apart of. Also, there is always a party down the street or on campus in the student center.

    Food and Dining

    There are two main places for dining. The food is a bit tasteless or just plain nasty for the most part. However there are a few chocies that are appealing such as nachos, salads and burritos. One place of dining is all you can eat, so if you have a healthy appetite that would be perfect for you. There is also a Sub way and an Aunty Ann'es on campus.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are where you will most likely meet and bond with persons who will become life long friends. The rooms are not very big and are often visited by mice. The onus is on you to keep your rooms clean to prevent an infestation. The bathrooms can become a bit disgusting but there are persons who clean them everyday. For the most part living in the dorm is fun. The resident assistants often host games and activities for all members in the buildings to bond over.

    Academic Rigor

    There are both good and bad professors in each department but for the most part, the professors make an effort for you to understand the course material. Some on the other hand expect you to learn it yourself which can be a bit difficult. Luckily there are many tutors available to help students.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are looking for a party school, Morgan would be fun for you. Do not come to Morgan with too high of expectations or else you will not enjoy it. Do not expect the food to be gourmet but expect to make a lot of new friends. Persons on campus are very friendly but Baltimore can be dangerous so be very aware of your surroundings at all times.

    In three sentences

    Morgan State University is what you make of it, just like every other institution of higher learning. Overall it is a beautiful campus with beautiful people from all over the world. There are many activities on campus which make it interesting and fun.

    Campus Safety

    One privilege Morgan State students have is that a police department is directly on campus, not campus police but actual officers, also on late nights there are police escorts for students who may be traveling alone.

    Greek Life

    There are Fraternities and Sororities that are very active on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    The clubs and organizations at Morgan State are limitless for choosing.

    What to do for fun

    For fun students are always hosting events. Events are usually held on the weekends, there are very few if any events held on weekdays.

    Food and Dining

    The food could go left or right in the main cafeteria. In the Canteen however the food is always exceptional.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms could be better, but they are well-kept and maintained. RAs are constantly asking if you have maintenance issues and are happy to help you seek assistance for them.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors are all very well spoken and well-educated in their expertise. The workload can be overwhelming but is worth it when the midterms season rolls around.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would suggest limiting yourself, when it comes to creating a schedule. It is often very difficult to multitask, and you can find that you may be stretching yourself thin.

    In three sentences

    For my time here at Morgan State University, I find it intriguing to see students who are truly here for the educational experience. The staff is everyday inspiring and consistent in reminding us students to work towards our goals. The environment is overall an encouraging one.

    What to do for fun

    At Morgan State there is always something to do. Before I got here I did expect this school to be all about partying but it actually is not. There are occasional parties here and there but not as many that I was expecting. Here at Morgan we are a big family and we all have fun together. Here at Morgan our fun consist of going to basketball games, volleyball games, and football games. These are probably the most enjoyable things to do on campus.

    Food and Dining

    At Morgan State there are not many places to eat which is a big disappointment. We have Rawlings Dining hall, the student canteen, Subway, Auntie Ann's and not to far from campus is a McDonald's. The food at Morgan State University is not the best. I actually stopped going to the Rawlings Dining hall because their food makes me sick. Mainly I go to the canteen which has pizza, a sandwich shop, salad bar and other food items. I wish that Morgan would add more places to eat on campus. The choices of food on campus is very limited.

    Dorm Life

    I do live on campus in Blount Towers and I have to say it is not as bad as I pictured it being. I was very nervous about the bathroom situation but you do get used to it. There are three stalls, three showers and three sinks in each bathroom. The rooms are also very spacious. I live on the eighth floor which is sometimes a burden especially when the elevators no longer work and you have to walk up and down eight flights of stairs. I would also recommend being roommates with someone you already know. I am roommates with someone I do not know and we are complete opposites. My side of the room is neat and clean while her side looks like a tornado hit it.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic rigor here at Morgan is not very stressful you just have to make sure that your are spending all your time right. Being here in college definitely requires that you study. I know most people say that in high school they never studied. Well here at Morgan State and for that matter any University you must study to see the grade that you want.

    Tips for prospective students

    Some tips for some prospective students looking into Morgan State would be get everything done early. If you plan to live on campus make sure you sign up for everything on time. Do not wait until the last minute to get everything set up which is what I did.

    In three sentences

    I would give Morgan State University four stars. Morgan State University is a very well rounded school. The professors all are very great with their students and want to see them succeed.

    The food is excellent, the cafeteria is clean and the staff is nice.

    Dorm Life

    This is college, not a hotel so I was not expecting luxury. The older dorms are being renovated, they've built some really impressive newer dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    I am in the Engineering program and was introduce to the hectic academic pace of that program my first semester of my freshman year.

    Tips for prospective students

    For in-state tuition, Morgan is moderately priced. I only wish housing weren't so expensive!

    What to do for fun

    Baltimore is a great historical place. Take a bus (or cab) ride and explore!

    Food and Dining

    Could offer more variety!

    Dorm Life

    Campus Safety

    My first semester they were several robberies and a couple shootings in the on campus and surrounding the campus, since then the security has improved and there have been less robberies and no shootings.

    What to do for fun

    For fun I may play basketball in the Hurt Gymnasium, which is only open for like 3 hours per day. The actual is of poor quality. I also play video games. Most of the time is just talk to my friends because they are funny people.

    Food and Dining

    The variety of food is mediocre...along with the quality of the food. You might get a decent meal once per week. Subway is the best choice on campus but they do not except your meal plan, so you have to pay out of pocket.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are not that great. The best male dorm, Cummings, is in the middle of campus which is a great location, but it is old and somewhat run-down. The dorm, OC, is in a terrible location and I would never want to live there. Baldwin is next to Cummings, but it is mainly for athletes. Rawlings is next to the main girls dorm and has bigger dorm rooms than the other male dorms. It also above the cafeteria, but further away from the classrooms.

    Academic Rigor

    Some teachers will push you mentally. I've had a few professors tell the whole class how other schools were better than us, but it was to push the students to do better.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not lose focus in why you came to college. Make the grades, get involved in activities, do not slack off. Many people have slacked off and no they are trying to catch up. I am taking classes with seniors and I am only a sophomore.

    In three sentences

    I chose Morgan because it is know for its engineering program. The tuition is good for in-state students. The food is not that great.

    What to do for fun

    I go to parties every now and then, but you have to be careful because you can get shot, stabbed or robbed.

    Food and Dining

    Some of the food is decent, but when your eating and see a mouse in the middle of the caf�©, you loose your appetite!

    Dorm Life

    Ewww is the only way to describe it!!! Whatever you do, don't live in blount towers because the females there are dirty, the building has a reputation, and the elevators are horrible!! There are 3 elevators and every time you turn around two are always broke down. Plus the certificates that are plastered in the elevators are expired!!! It takes for ever for the people in charge to fix your issues. Most of the windows in the rooms are cracked or they don't open. Most of the air conditioners in the room don't work and they take for ever in a decade to replace. they try to charge you for everything!!

    Academic Rigor

    I liked some professors and their willing to help the students that are in need.

    Tips for prospective students

    JUST DON'T GO!!! SAVE YOURSELF!!

    Party. Basketball. Student Center Game Room. Campus Activities.

    Food and Dining

    The Canteen is good. The cafeteria is alright. Subway and Auntie Anns are the other places you can eat, but are not included in the meal plan.

    Dorm Life

    Not many dorms, and you have to choose early. I was a transfer student and applied late so had no choice. O'Connell is where I stay and I wish I didn't live there because I don't feel it's worth the money that's being paid. Other dorms look more appealing. If you move off campus the area isn't too safe at night.

    Academic Rigor

    It can be more challenging. It's very simple if you do the work, you get the grade. (General Education) The Major programs at Morgan are more challenging in academic rigor.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be open to different backgrounds and worldviews. Time management is key. Do your work on the weekday and save the partying for the weekend.

    Campus Safety

    Morgan campus is truly safe. The lighting covers the entire campus, making it safer for students to walk to and from class in the evening hours. Patrol cars are always in the area making sure nothing breaks out. Students are not allowed to bring any sort of weapon, drug or alcohol on campus, else they will face the consequences. Morgan State University utilizes & maintains a full-time, 24/7/365 Campus Police & Public Safety department. All uniformed officers and dispatchers have gone through extensive training, and provide patrol of all residence halls, academic buildings, and campus parking areas. All officers are fully trained to respond during any emergency and crisis situations. The safety of the Morgan State University community during an emergency is predicated on advance planning, as well as building awareness about how the plans will be implemented. Students, faculty, staff and visitors will be better prepared in an emergency if they know how the University will respond, where they can find information, and what they should do. Key to that awareness is good communication. This site will be an essential tool for sharing plans and providing relevant information in case an emergency arises at Morgan State University or in the surrounding area. It provides recommended procedures for responding to certain emergencies. Many of these procedures are adapted from the Morgan State University Crisis Management Plan. This guide should be easily accessible in offices and other workspaces and used as a ready reference to supplement good judgment and common sense. In other words, feel free to ask questions to get comfortable on the campus and the new friends will be studying and interacting with for at least 4 years. This is make you a better person and better prepared for the world you are about to enter. Good luck to all.

    Greek Life

    The Greek Life has always been one of the most popular organizations on most campus. Joining a sorority or fraternity is something that most students sign up for. It's a way to bring people together, making them more powerful, teach them how to overcome weakness and how to make the most out of their life. Fraternities, sororities, and social clubs were established at Morgan State University as early as 1913 and since then have played an active and vital role in the lives of many of our students. Currently 18 fraternities, sororities, and social clubs organized into two governing councils provide many Morgan State students with a personal and interactive collegiate experience. Members of fraternities, sororities, and social clubs are active in all aspects of life on campus including clubs and honor societies, major campus entities such as Student Government, Inter-Residence Council, and Morgan State athletic teams. The organizations themselves provide many activities, events, and programs for the entire campus community. If nothing else, Greek Life provides a broad range of opportunities and experiences for its members from which memories and personal growth are just two of the benefits.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are several clubs and activities to get involved in throughout campus. Sports clubs give you a chance to experience the different types of sports that interest you. Activities such as board games and field playing fun are always a nice way to get to meet people and exercise.

The Office of Community Service provides interested students with the training, supervision, support, recognition and evaluation needed to participate in community volunteer programs.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who struggle with learning have a better chance of succeeding here at Morgan. The staff are well trained and thoughtful. They will work with you in small groups or one on one, if necessary. Also, for students who are physically disadvantage, the campus is equipped with ramps and elevators making it easy to access class rooms and move around with little to no help.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Since my mother was a graduate in the same program of Engineering, I have the advantage to know what it is really like to work as a female in this field. I love how women are starting to come out of their shell and face more and interesting careers life have to offer. Most of the students like hanging out on the bridge. The bridge is a connecting area where students have to cross each other daily. When they cross, they usually stop and talk, look over the bright and think about what a find or bad day they had. The bridge is usually crowded and tends to be a little annoying at times. But if you missed any events or if there are upcoming events, you will be sure to hear it on the bridge. Also, the dorm rooms, a place where you can have peace of mind to study and rest or a place to entertain. My friends play cards, read stories, tell jokes, eat good food and share happy and sad times together. I love having my independence and freedom. I also love the controlled environment meaning that all people are not allowed on campus if they do not attend the university. This has always been the case even when my mother attended and lived on campus years ago. The tradition of having fun in the doom rooms and making new friends has always been one of the best ways to get to know people. Even though the rooms are small, it's the best part about being a roommate is learning how to share, wait your turn and get organized. I am really enjoying the freedom and the exposure of trying to live with people I have never met before in my life.

    Bang for the buck

    I live in Baltimore City, therefore I know a little more about the university and it's surroundings. I always liked Morgan because it is convenience in location and the tuition is reasonable. My mother also graduation in 2000 with a Master Degree in Engineering. Live in the Academic Moment A college education is a classic process-versus-product paradigm. Plenty of students complain about their work or obsess about their G.P.A., but that is just wasted energy and time. Ã?Â?Ã?Â? Get caught up in any academic ennui. Instead, focus on your assignments, papers and projects for their intrinsic learning value; the grades will come naturally. Don't Study in Your Room Unless you have a spartan single and concentration powers of steel, your room is the worst place to study because of the comfort and the distractions. Given the realities of dorm life, it's far too easy to wander across the hall and talk to your neighbor, or to have Facebook on while you glance back and forth from your book to the screen. Get Connected to Campus Life Academic clubs, social organizations and professional associations take on a larger, more applied and energetic meaning in college. You should jump in with both feet, even if it means getting outside your comfort zone a little bit.

    What to do for fun

    There are lots of things to do for fun. Events are posted everywhere on the campus such as the band playing, sports events, dance and theater performances. There are plenty of games held in dorm areas as well as throughout the campus. Plenty of places to eat great food. Movies, swimming, working out at the gym, dancing and playing sports are fun things to do in near by areas. The University Student Center includes a state-of-the-art Recreation Center, located on the 2nd Floor in room 201. Here at the Rec Center we offer 7 Billiard tables, air hockey, table tennis, and arcade games, but the fun does not stop there!

    Dorm Life

    Dorm Life is a must. Every student should experience that chance to live on campus. This exposure give each student an idea of what it's really like to share rooms. Not only are you force to comprise with your roommates, you are also force to develop a healthy relationship. Morgan's dorms are like real apartments. You have your own room, share a bathroom with one other person and share the kitchen and living room area. Events and other programs like studying with a buddy are scheduled on posted boards in the hallways. Explore your dorm early When you get to campus, take some time in the first few days to familiarize yourself with your dorm. Find out where the laundry machines are, where the lounges and study spaces are and what they offer, and of course, where the closest bathroom to your room is. Knowing is available near you will be important when you feel like you need to... 2. Get out! Living in a small dorm room can make anyone feel claustrophobic pretty quickly. It pays to get out of your room and go study or hang out elsewhere. Its more than just a change of scene, you will meet more people this way. 3. Organize your room early It can be tempting to put off setting up your room at the beginning of the year when it seems like so much is going on, but it only gets busier. Take the time to set up your room, making it organized and clean so at least you know it can be. Consider bunking or lofting your beds to make create more space, and find ways to pack away winter clothes and other things you need under your bed or in a closet. 4. Give your room some personality Just because your one room double is only slightly larger than some closets mean it has to be depressing. Get creative with decorations. Put up posters and pictures of friends, hang your track medals from high school or put up Christmas lights. The sooner you make your room your own with fun decorations, the more you will enjoy living there.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are looking for a place where you can get a good education, meet nice teachers and other students without having to travel miles away from home and pay high tuition cost, then Morgan is your key to success. Students looking for ways to earn a degree without paying high cost and having the opportunities to apply for loans and scholarships, don't look no more. .Recognize the environment This is often difficult to do depending on your background. If you grew up in a city or attended a large high school, this will likely be easier than it will be for students with different experiences. Finding oneself in a community where the majority of the residents and daily contacts are young people living autonomously is often a strange sensation, especially if you are a freshman coming out of high school. Adjust to the changes in the academic requirements This is a step towards enjoying college that is often difficult for many people, while others may find the transition smooth and fitting. College coursework initially appears harder than other sorts of educational challenges you may have faced. Create your solid friend group Handling any situation in the melancholy torment of solitude is not an environmental condition that will be conducive to your success. After all, forcing one to be alone is a tool that is utilized as a harsh punishment.

    Campus Safety

    We have a police already on campus and every student is given the number to that station. Stationed all over campus are emergency stands. At these stations, you just push a button and someone from the police station will come on and talk to you and come to you if you need help. Plus we also have security stations placed around campus, where an officer will actually sit inside of the booth all night and monitor their area. If you are out late and do not feel comfortable walking back to your room or car by yourself, you can call the MSU police and someone can come to escort you to wherever on campus that you need to go.
