What Students Are Saying

3.50 Average Rating
MANAGE YOUR TIME! my freshman year second semester i was a tour guide for the school and every single tour i did i stressed to the students to manage their time meaning dont schedule morning classes if your not capable to make them all.
Chelsea from Germantown, MD
Always make sure to get a variety of opinions on schools. You make hear that a school is good or bad but everyone always has different opinions. Also, check out different activities and programs that the school may have that interests you. You never want to go to a school without fully knowing that it is the right one for you!
Fern from Silver Spring, MD
Get everything (housing, financial aid, etc) taken care of as soon as possible. You don't want to find yourself scrambling at the last minute; it creates too much of a headache.
ASK QUESTIONS. You will never know unless you do.
Make the effort to get to know your professors. Contrary to popular belief, they are not as hard-nosed as they appear to be.
Schedule your classes wisely. If you are not a morning person, don't schedule an 8 AM class.
You're college experience is what you make it. Get to know people, but at the same time know whether or not the people you meet will help or hinder your progress.
Briana from Clarksville, TN
Always remember you are in school to receive your education. SCHOOL MUST COME FIRST!! There will be plenty of time for social activities and part time jobs AFTER you have completed your school work.
Maya from Windsor Mill, MD
before coming to morgan state make sure you have everything prepared before your arrival from getting housing to financial aid situated so your transition from home to school is a smooth transition. also manage your time well if you manage your time it really prevents you from being stress free. and remember to enjoy the experience your getting because its really one that you dont want to miss out on and will never forget.
Ashlee from Annapolis, MD
If you are looking for a place where you can get a good education, meet nice teachers and other students without having to travel miles away from home and pay high tuition cost, then Morgan is your key to success.

Students looking for ways to earn a degree without paying high cost and having the opportunities to apply for loans and scholarships, don't look no more.
.Recognize the environment

This is often difficult to do depending on your background. If you grew up in a city or attended a large high school, this will likely be easier than it will be for students with different experiences. Finding oneself in a community where the majority of the residents and daily contacts are young people living autonomously is often a strange sensation, especially if you are a freshman coming out of high school.
Adjust to the changes in the academic requirements
This is a step towards enjoying college that is often difficult for many people, while others may find the transition smooth and fitting. College coursework initially appears harder than other sorts of educational challenges you may have faced.
Create your solid friend group
Handling any situation in the melancholy torment of solitude is not an environmental condition that will be conducive to your success. After all, forcing one to be alone is a tool that is utilized as a harsh punishment.

Study, study, study! Balance your time wisely and always know that your education comes first. Have the best relationships with your professors because it is a possibility that you will need them down the line. They are there to help and assist you, not hurt you. Work hard and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
Alias from Baltimore, MD
i encourage all prospective students to balance social life and academics in order to succeed. it is important to know your faculty and advisers. these individuals pave the way to academics success.
Michelle from Baltimore, MD
To be grounded and know that it is okay to not know. Its okay to be somewhere and not know what you want to do for the rest of your life. Just live and learn that college will take you to a place where you will learn just exactly what it means to be passionate about life and your future. DONT BE AFRAID.
