Harris-Stowe State University Reviews
I love the energy at Harris-Stowe and I love the activities and clubs they offer. We also have some of the best college housing accommodations in the country with single bedroom suites with full kitchens and bathrooms that we only have to share with one other person. The rigor of classes is pleasantly challenging as well and the professors are always here to help. What I would like to see improve is the quickness with which housing issues are fixed. Many rooms have broken and/or dysfunctional objects that have not yet been fixed after submitting multiple work orders. The food here is good as well. Although we don't have popular restaurants, the food service provider we have gives us options and is open 4 times a day during the week.
My name is Collin Evans and I have recently been accepted into Harris-Stowe State University. I have been on a visit and was please and very grateful for the experience. However, I would like to say from the professor, counselors ,and students they were all generous considering the frame mindset I have on college. Even the setting changes my mindset of how college is and how it is suppose to be. I believe that there is room for important but it’s actually a fine institution. I believe Harris-Stowe values and displays both diversity in socioeconomic background and race on its campus. Lastly , the school could use more athletics like football and more activities/clubs.
Harris Stowe was an excellent school to attend. I am proud to say I will be graduating in May of 2018 with my bachelors in Biology! This school has taught me how to overcome the toughest battles and to never give up. After losing a close friend to gun violence my grades dropped and I didn’t think I would make. The teachers and students helped me in so many way just when I was about to give up on life. I’m honored and crying writing this but I am forever grateful for choosing Harris-Stowe State University to attend.
