Hampton University Reviews
I love Hampton University! classes. Hampton is a tough college academically, but it is only tough love. They want you to succeed the best you can therefore they will hold you to a higher standard than other students in other Universities. This is so when you are competing for things such as internships and job opportunities you will already be ahead of the game. Hampton has a plan for every major and makes sure you have what you need to do to be successful once you graduate. Teachers will hold you accountable for your grades in the classes, and they rarely accept excuses. This makes some teachers seem like they don't really care however, if you stick through the battle and prove yourself academic wise you will become a better a person and have a great sense of responsibility. This leaves nothing ahead of your dreams and aspirations in life.
The environment created and experience of being surrounded by other African Americans was surreal, but they are still very old school! This is there downfall. Many students don’t like the school because the staff is old and many dont seem to care about there jobs . It’s all about meeting and surrounding yourself with the right people.
On May 28, 2015, I graduated high school and had high hopes of going to my dream school Hampton University. I knew with Hampton being a very prestigious HBCU and private, the tuition was going to be high. With that being said I was unable to go to HU my freshman year of college. While finishing up my first year of college at the Ohio State University, I applied again to attend HU and got reaccepted! I was happy and I couldn't wait to go. I was able to attend HU the second time around because I managed to win some scholarship money. I have been at Hampton for a semester now finishing up my sophomore year. I absolutely love the loving family atmosphere that the school has and I also love how it is so rich in history. One thing that I would say that needs to change is organization. I also would like to see better housing. Lastly I would love to have better food opportunities on campus other than our cafeteria, Chick-fil-a, Pirates Grille, and Planet Smoothie.
