I haven't had a professor I didn't like! All the professors I've had this far have been super helpful, and willing to conform to each of our learning styles due to the smaller class sizes. I wouldn't have chosen to go anywhere else.
I haven't actually started nursing courses just yet, but taking my pre-reqs has definitely helped shape me and helped me realize just how hard school is. You definitely have to learn how to be organized and figure out a good way to study, or else you'll end up slipping in class and it's not fun. I had to learn the hard way about balancing a social life with school and working full time. It's definitely a learning experience, but nothing I regret. The curriculum and work load wasn't anything worse than what I learned in high school, just a little bit more fast paced, but you learn how to keep up.
It is hard work being a chemistry major; it takes a lot of focus. The curriculum is rigorous, and the workload can get overwhelming but is manageable. Ultimately, there are not a lot of chemistry majors at Howard University because students are intimidated by how challenging it is. Students fail to realize that internships/job opportunities are easily accessible, because companies are always looking for chemists; the chemistry department is also very friendly and informs students via email about these opportunities daily.
