What Students Are Saying

3.22 Average Rating
I recommend prospective students to visit the campus and tour the dorms.l Some dorms have air conditioning and some do not. It is good to try to get to know your dorm director in advance and to form a relationship with him or her. My dorm director was Ms. Wilkins and i think she is one of the best. Your dorm director will be one of the most helpful people during your freshman year as well as your RAs. Good luck with your quest for finding the right school. I am proud Pirate!
Asia from Winterville, NC
Make sure that you schedule a campus tour and visit the dorms. Take time to do research on the school and it's history as well as the program for your desired major. Enter Hampton with an open mind and heart and be as active as possible.
JASMIN from Clinton, MD
If you are considering or have been accepted to Hampton University, first, congratulations. Second, this school is for students that are dedicated to their studies. Yes, we have a good time, but grades definitely come first. Finally, if you are not from Virginia and you are not use to being away from home, this is not the school for you.
Nikkia from Lithonia, GA
Utilize your big brothers and sister they will help guide you and don't worry too much about curfew, freshman only have curfew till homecoming. In addition to this, go to pre-college you will meet a lot of people and have college credits already going into your freshman year; which makes that year so much more easier.
Myles from Baltimore, MD
-Be open minded to knew and different people and potential experiences.
-If your grades start to slip, speak with a counselor immediately.
-Don't be afraid to get involved.
-Try to maintain a positive mindset.
-Complete scholarships!
Shaniece from Brooklyn, NY
Do not be easily influenced by the crowd and what everyone is doing at the time. Pay close attention to your freshman year because it gets harder after this year.
Naomi from Jamaica
The best tips is to manage your time. College is so different than high school, meaning much more responsibility and experience makes you mature and grow much faster. It is your job as a student to maintain your grades, your social image ( and yes networking is very important) and your financial status.
Katiria from Hampton, VA
Just be yourself and join as many clubs as possible. It is college so have fun but stay on top of you school work.
Ashley from Lynbrook, NY
make sure you have a great relationship with your counselor the will help you with internships, grad school applications, and also they're there to help you stay one track.
capri from philadelphia, pa
Be sure to study and stay on top of your studies! As an incoming student, it can be very easy to get distracted with the social environment Hampton University has but it was very possible to balance both.
