    Hampton University has a beautiful campus. I enjoy setting near the water when the weather is nice socializing or even studying. Everything is walking distance and convenient. Students can do their banking on campus, laundry, eating at fast foods places, etc. It is like a little town.

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

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

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

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