Hampton University was founded in 1868 after the American Civil War to provide education to former slaves. This HBCU is surrounded by the Chesapeake Bay and Virginia Peninsula on three sides and sometimes referred to as the “Home by the Sea.” U.S. News & World Report ranks HU as #3 in Historically Black Colleges and Universities and #21 in Regional Universities South. Psychology, office management, and corporate communications are among the top majors for undergraduate study.
Hampton University is an extremely strict insitution, were freshman are given a curfew and have limited freedoms. This maybe in order to have control over the freshman class and have them focus on school work, but to those who are mature, this is a nuisance. Besides this the faculty are very helpful and want to see you succeed and the big brother, big sister program is excellent and Hampton University a big family.
