Langston University Reviews
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.
I like how Langston is like a family, you feel welcomed, but I would love to see more diversity. There are a lot of people from all over the world coming to langston to take on college, but just not enough different cultures, and colors. I think that the campus is great for people who want to feel independence because there are different types of dorms you can get which are traditional and apartment styled. You meet lots of new, friendly people here at Langston and they make sure to make sure you love your stay!
Langston University is a wonderful school that truly develops it's students into brilliant leaders, if the students are willing to apply themselves and take what the school has to offer. I'm extremely grateful to call Langston University my HBCU!
