Did learn a lot
Learning at Morehouse College occurs not only in the classroom but in everyday happenings around the campus. This is an amazing environment for exchanging knowledge and experiences because of all the schools in close proximity bringing in people from all over the world of tremendously different backgrounds. How much you learn is only limited by your own desires.
Did enjoy being here
Initially I swayed about how much I was really liking Morehouse College. I mean paying so much money and having the West End be my welcoming mat, I just had my doubts. However this turned out to be one of, if not thee best decision I ever made in life. The people there were phenomenal and there was always something exciting going on. Its a one of a kind atmosphere that I'm blessed to have experienced.
Bang for the buck
For the cost, you look at the facilities and around the campus and as a student of course you wonder Where is all this money going. No Morehouse doesn't have amazing athletic facilities, not many state of the art classrooms or labs, and no the dorms aren't hardly fancy. However the bang for your buck comes from the culture of Morehouse and the AUC. This is very much a community that forces one to be social and network. This network you build, will be something you can depend on for the rest of your life and the extensiveness of the network is beyond comprehension.
Tips for prospective students
Stay hungry, stay focused, but remain humbled. Its very easy to lose your humility in an environment of success and in an environment of praise. Remember that with that praise comes expectation, an expectation that as a Man of Morehouse you are well learned, well behaved, well dressed, and well aware just to name a few. Learn to embrace the meaning of brotherhood and family, remain open minded, and never cease to challenge not only yourself but those around you.
Great for these types of students
This is an environment i can honestly recommend for anyone because Morehouse accepts students from every background imaginable. You name it, there's a sub-community for all your interests, needs, and background. There's something at Morehouse for every young man...

Life in the residence halls at Morehouse is excellent. There are many late nights were you get to bond with some of your others brothers. That is the most amazing experience. You can learn alot from one another just by having a conversation. You will meet people from all across the country some of which may have the same ideologies as you and other may not. Morehouse is very diverse in culture.

Greek life is present on campus, but not the main focus of the school. Morehouse students more focused on bonding with all of their brothers.

Tips for prospective students
Live be Morehouse's five wells. Be well spoken. Be well read. Be well traveled. Be well dressed and well balanced.
Academic Rigor
Make sure you focus on your goal and do not get distracted. Set high goals for yourself. Believe that you can achieve these goals.
Dorm Life
Freshman year at Morehouse, you meet people in your dorm. The dorm that you live in, will make up songs and chants that the dorm will use to fight against other Freshman dorms. All the Freshman dorms, will battle to see who is the most dominate dorm. At Morehouse , they like to call dorms resident halls.
Food and Dining
The food at Morehouse is pretty good. We have a buffet in the cafeteria. We also have fried chicken Wednesday, which is the only day fried chicken is served(sometimes they still serve fried chicken on other days). Also, we have a stir fry station, which is delicious.Some days, we even have a DJ playing music in the cafeteria while we eat. Sometimes, the lunch ladies be dancing to the music.
What to do for fun
Every hump Wednesday, is outside or in the gym where we have a DJ. The DJ plays songs to get the crowd moving, and sometimes the DJ picks people from the crowd to dance on stage. Also, at hump Wednesday we have step battles between the Frat groups and other battles between the Sororities. Also, a lot of celebrities visit our school because Morehouse is well known. We have Celebrity Basketball games. Also, every year around October, we have Homecomings where celebrities come, and we also have dances during Homecoming. I would love to go on about how much fun we have at Morehouse, but it would go far beyond 300 words.
Bang for the buck
Martin Luther King Jr., Spike Lee, and Samuel L. Jackson graduated from Morehouse College. Morehouse is in Atlanta, Georgia, so there are many activities to do. It is an all boy school, but has so many girls around it. Spelman College is a school near Morehouse. Clark Atlanta University is another school near Morehouse. All the schools share the same library, and most of the events like Homecoming are shared by all three schools. Clark is a boy and girl school, but Clark has way more girls than boys. Spelman is an all girl school, and it has more girls in it than Morehouse has of boys. The schools are so close that sometimes when walking out of your residents hall, you will see a couple of girls on the stoop.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
In the beginning of your Freshman year at Morehouse, you will attend this event called Olive Branch. This is the first time you meet the Freshman girls from Clark and Spelman. Olive Branch, is a big dance held at night on Clark Atlanta's football field. The girls arrive at the football field first and wait for the boys, then all the boys from Morehouse and Clark go to the field. There will be a DJ there. Also, another tradition Morehouse has is that Freshman get paired up with Spelman and Clark sisters. The Morehouse Freshman will walk in a straight line to Kings Chapel. The Spelman girls will walk from Spelman ,and a person will pair you up with a girl from Spelman and you will exchange contact information with them. She can become a close friend and introduce you to her other friends from Spelman.
Great for these types of students
If you are a student that does not get easily distracted, then Morehouse is a good school. Even if you get distracted, Morehouse has a saying, I got my brother's back. Other Morehouse students help you accomplish your goals.Morehouse is big on brotherhood. Morehouse College is the third Historically Black College University in the nation just behind Howard and Spelman. They prepare African American men for the world, but other ethnicity groups also study at Morehouse College. It equips men in general for the world. Some people as far as Asia come to study at Morehouse. The people at Morehouse, are open for learning about other people's cultures as well as their own. Morehouse truly respects all their students no matter what race.
Clubs and Activities
Morehouse has sport teams for almost all sports. They have a team for Basketball, Football, Baseball etc. They have a especially strong Football team. Morehouse has Business clubs and other clubs for different Majors. Some of the clubs go on road trips. They even have clubs for musicians and poets. Also, they have clubs with benefits and opportunities for your future. In the Business club( like MBA), you get to meet Morehouse alumni and they help you find business opportunities.
Greek Life
Morehouse has all the fraternities you could think of. We have Omegas, Alfas,Kappas etc. Each fraternity has different colors and chants. They have Stroll offs(stepping) battles between each other. Some Fraternities have Barbeque's and cookouts, which are live. They have parties that they host, and if you are apart of their Frat, then you get in for free. The movie Stomp The Yard was filmed at Morehouse College, which is a movie with Fraternities step battling each other.
Campus Safety
Inside Morehouse College, is a pretty save place. The area that Morehouse College is in called West End can be danger if you are not careful. Morehouse encourages their students not to wear Morehouse clothing off campus grounds. If you go downtown in Atlanta wearing Morehouse clothing, then it should be cool. The local West End residents might think you are an easy target if you attend Morehouse, but most of them are not looking for trouble. Morehouse College has campus police, and some of them look like incredible hulks walking around.

Morehouse is a school filled with history. It is for intellectuals looking to expand their field of view of the world. If you're not ready to learn and become an active member of your community, then don't come to this school.
Tips for prospective students
Go to your professors and counselors if you start to struggle. They are there to help you succeed, and they will do everything in their power to make sure you do so.
Academic Rigor
Definitely on the harder side if you end up entering the Honors Program like I did. Otherwise, the course work isn't as difficult as it is enlightening.
Dorm Life
Be prepared to literally live in history. Some of the buildings have been there for over 140 years. They aren't the best, but you will learn to call it home soon enough.
Food and Dining
Definitely watch out for the cafe food. If you're not careful, that freshman 15 will turn into a freshman 30. Mix up some healthy eating habits in between to keep a balanced diet. Also, use your DCBs sparingly. They can save your life towards the end of the semester, so make sure you have enough at that time.
What to do for fun
There's a lot to do on campus. From Wednesday to Friday of every week (barring midterms and finals), there is an outdoor party on one of the three campuses. If that's not your style, then there are plenty of spots to hit up downtown. You could visit the King Museum, or head over to the park area for some recreational fun. Remember, the fun doesn't find you, you have to find the fun. Don't be afraid to get out of your dorm room and explore a little.
