Langston University Reviews
Langston University overall is a very exciting HBCU. There is always campus events going on and also, so much activities and school spirit! Langston is really a committed HBCU. They care about your future and are always pushing you to grow.
This University makes sure that college students get the education that they deserve just like any other college. But this particular college is wanting to break the continuing cycle of kids not being able to get an education that they've wanted. They are very determined to get in the minds of students by education. Teaching Us all we need to know in order to do something with our lives instead of doing nothing with it. To actually say "we have a degree". They try to improve they're method every year to keep students in college, by improving the teaching method, dorms, food, buildings, libraries and etc. My experience at this university have been absolutely amazing. Being apart of this is like being with my family back at home. My roommates are nice and so are my peers on this campus. The students and the workers here are nothing but such encouraging, pleasurable, heart felt people I have ever met. I might be a freshmen but it already feels like I have been here for a long time.
As a current undergraduate student at Dear old Langston University, my first year experience has been great! I love the hospitality and the joy, we as first time freshman have recieved from the staff and students. They offer a very broad choice of organizations for everyone to choose from. Getting around campus wasn’t difficult and there were people to help if we needed it. I can’t stress the issue enough that this was a great choice of school for me and many others.
