What Students Are Saying

3.22 Average Rating
As an electrical engineering major and midshipman in NROTC, the course load is extremely hard. As a freshman I had 17 credits during the fall and 20 credits during the spring.

Hampton University does have tedious courses, but it depends on how well you are in a particular subject to depend on how well you will do. In my opinion, the courses that are the lightest work are the ones of that are in your freshman year. However, because they are lighter in work doesn't mean you should take your work for granted.
Shaniece from Brooklyn, NY
The course work is relatively easy as a freshman. As you get more and more into your major your course work will increase.
Naomi from Jamaica
As my high school pre-warned me, there are many foreign professors. In this case it is my job as a student and an adult to stay on myself to work harder and even stay on my teacher to help me succeed. The best thing about my teachers is they do not baby me but push me to reach heights even higher than I thought I could achieve.
