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

    Howard University has changed and is continuing to change dramatically. Just from my first year, there has been a lot of problems with administration, financial aid, dorm life, and more. "New Howard" is what students are calling it now because of traditions changing as well. Howard provides false hope for prospectives and then your whole prospective changes once you attend.

    Administration is uncooperative and slow. Buildings need to be renovated. Some departments need new professors.

    Howard seems like a wonderful school to go to. Just like any other school, it has it’s up and downs. It’s been around for a while and I could understand why people would want the school to get renovated and have a better upkeepung instead of keeping the look it’s had since the 1800’s.

    Howard University strives on excellence in service, and as of recently it shows. They work to build a very strong sense of community for both the staff and students. It is a school that works to increase diversity across all professional fields, but aiming to keep their students in, not weed students out.

    The greatest decision I've made in life so far. It's a great place with great people. A place that wants you to succeed and grow as a person.

    I think that the buildings could use an upgrade, and the upkeep of the outside isn't that great but it only should take a little time to fix that problem. I do love that they have a ROTC program and they are a private school, but I feel I could of had a more thorough tour because I feel some things were left out. Also the HBCU aspect of it makes the college more interesting for me, but again still iffy about the school.

    howard is wonderful school where blackness in all it's forms is embraced and encouraged. it's small enough to feel like you know everyone but large enough to alwasy be able to meet new people.
