Tips for prospective students
There are many opportunities at Langston to have fun and learn about different cultures and experience. The Yard is always a fun place to be.
Academic Rigor
Langston is a small campus so the classes are about 30 per class. You can get a comfortable feel with the teachers and they care about you in you academics as well as personal life.
Dorm Life
Every student has their own room and space. It gives you a sense of security and peace.

langston university is an excellent school for students who aren't exposed to their african american culture. it's a smaller school, which allows students to feel more connected to their professors and peers. really great institution for students who want to branch out into community service, and doing things for others.
Tips for prospective students
1. bring weather appropriate clothing for winter. 2. be open to all of the possibilities this school has to offer. 3. avoid the rumors that this institution carries with it. 4. be ready to help others.
Academic Rigor
this review is given based on my work load as a mccabe scholar, required to take honors courses.
Dorm Life
langston university does not have dorms for on campus residents. their housing consists of apartments, which gives a more private experience than the dorm life, since you share and apartment rather than a room with other people.
Food and Dining
the cafeteria has its days where it can be great, and then it has days where it can be bad. the constant complaint is that the drink machines pick which days they would like to properly work.
What to do for fun
i'm not really into the party scene, but there are multiple parties going on weekly. langston is located in the middle of nowhere, so you have to travel in order to participate in recreational activities, like movies, skating, malls, etc.

Am learning a lot
Classes are small which provides you with one on one time with your professors which is great, because being a full time college student sometimes you may be busy during tutoring hours. So if you can talk to your professor and get help in class, you save a great deal of time.
Am enjoying being here
It's a great community. We all are very friendly and family based. Even though Langston University may be in the 'middle of nowhere' it's never boring. There are many options to do. If you don't want to go to one of the many parties we throw, you can go to basketball games, football games, comedy nights, or go grab a bite to eat with friends at the concession stands.
Bang for the buck
Langston University is a private college but you don't pay the private school price. You can get a awesome education for a lot cheaper.
Tips for prospective students
Come visit the school, walk around and get to know people. Before you get here remember that even though we party hard, we study even harder. Professors don't play about skipping classes. Don't take a class before 10am you will never want to get up.
Great for these types of students
Someone who wants 5 things.
1. Family/your home away from home
2. Fun
3. Happiness
4. Cheaper prices for the same great education.
5. One on one time with professors.

I honestly give Langston about a serious 8. I wanted to go to other schools. but I'm glad Langston was my choice. Transferring doesn't even cross my mind.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure you do everything when Langston staff tells you to. Otherwise, you'll be waiting for ever. Students tend to wait until the last minute and don't get what they need done on time.
Academic Rigor
Langston accepts pretty much everybody. Even though SAT and ACT scores are required, you won't be rejected education. They put you in classes to help with whatever subject you are struggling in.
Dorm Life
The dorm life is the best. Centennial Courts is my favorite apartment complex. However, it is only for the freshman. Then comes Scholars Inn. Those are for the upperclassmen. Scholars Inn has bigger beds and bigger rooms so I guess that's a plus.
Food and Dining
The food is good. You get 3 meals a day. However, sometimes you may feel like you are getting tired of eating the same thing. If you are hungry, you'll eat.
What to do for fun
They have parties and mixxers as a way for the students to take a break. Sometimes they may even play music in front of the Student Success Center and have rap battles. The Greeks (Kappas & Omegas) have kickbacks every now and then. Those are very fun.
Bang for the buck
Get work-study because you WILL need it. If you have a bill, unless you plan on paying out of pocket, get a job on or off campus.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
There is a big white building next to the University of Women. I have never been there. I'm actually scared to.
Great for these types of students
This is a HBCU. It doesn't matter who goes to Langston, but there are mostly African-Americans.
Clubs and Activities
There are many clubs for people to join. I've thought about joining the English club. I'm an English Education major.
Greek Life
The Greek life is lovely. My favorite is Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. They are the Bruhz and they keep everybody hype. The ladies love them. For the ladies, Delta Sigma Theta has all the ladies wanting to wear Krimson & Kreme. All of the Sororities and Fraternities do what they have to do though.
Campus Safety
Safety is one thing you do not have to worry about. There are cameras and a police station on campus. The police stay very alert and stay on top of preventing chaos. Sometimes things may get out of hand, but LUPD always show up.

Tips for prospective students
Make sure you keep track of the classes that you take. Don't withdraw from classes, those count too. Make sure that your financial aid is in place so that you won't have to worry about a balance. Stay focused. The upperclassmen are here to help you, not discourage you.
Academic Rigor
Make sure that if you need the help, sign up with tutors, use all of the available resources, and work and study hard. It is only as hard as you make it.
Dorm Life
Try to get along with the people that are your roommates. There are strong bonds that can develop when you get to know the people that you live with.
