    Howard is reasonably priced tuition wise. Stay in touch with the registrar, financial aid, and your department for potential scholarships. For the level of education you are receiving you're getting your moneys worth and more.

    like i said howard is what you make of it. if you stay in your dorm and complain about everything and aren't on top of your stuff sure it will suck. but if you go out and have fun and make friends and do your work and take advantage of all your opportunities, it definitely is. howard teaches you to be an adult and a lot of people can't take it. *shrugs*
