I am truly blessed and grateful to be apart of such an extraordinary HBCU. My experience here has been nothing short of amazing. The students and staff here do everything in their power so that as a whole , the entire university can be successful. I have grew a bond with several staff and students here at Coppin State University that I would have never expected. The teachers are wonderful and humble, and the classes aren't packed where as though it makes it difficult to get the best learning experience there is for yourself. In my opinion Coppin State University is the best HBCU hands down! We know our history, are true to our legacy, and we are moving nowhere but forward. So in closing, my experience here at Coppin State University has filled me with unexplainable joy and undefining hope for the future.

Coppin has a competitive Nursing program. The Business and Technology programs are growing as well. What makes this college attractive is the affordability and smaller classrooms. More people from different backgrounds and cultures are attending this school each semester and its beautiful. Have you ever seen different cultures and backgrounds having a friendly debate in the middle of the campus? You will see this at Coppin State.

The Cons: The location, even though this college is located in a undesirable location, it is actually one of the safest colleges in the Baltimore region(Thanks to the security and school police that are always on watch)
-There is only one stats teacher, his teaching style is hardcore
-Financial Aid is usually backed up not sure if its on the FA department end or state end, but they will have you fill out a form to hold your classes which is 25 dollars per student. (majority of the student body is on Financial Aid)
This is my first year at Coppin State University. I transferred over after three years of being out of college. The admissions staff and advisement team for my major made the transition back into high education smooth and painless. Now preparing to conclude my first semester as a Coppinite, I am happy I made the decision. The integrity of my professors, the content usednin my classes and the camaraderie of the entire campus makes this a great institution of higher learning. This semester I was taking all online courses and for the most part my courses ha e gone without incident. The o ly thing that I would suggest for the future is that Coppin require the instructors to take some kind of training before becoming an instructor for a online-based course. Aside from that, Coppin has re-ignited the fire that burned in me for deeper understanding of my history, culture and my identity.
