As a white student in a HBCU, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. The professors are very competent and also want to see the students succeed. Its definitely not a free ride as they are professional but all my professors have been very helpful and encouraging as long as they can see the students putting forth good effort. The students are great, I have felt welcomed and included as a minority on campus. My only complaint is the admissions and financial aid offices are not on top of stuff, as it takes very long for them to get documents processed and I didn't receive my financial aid till almost the end of the semester. But overall its a great environment!
Review Langston University
I learned that when people say college is how you make it they mean it. After getting out going to experience things on my own, I grew to love Langston. I joined this wonderful club called Heart to Heart it has gotten me closer with my religion. Langston makes you see that your life has purpose. I also became a SAB member this organization helps me crawl out of the shell I sometimes hide in. It is a good thing to be in because you get to help around the campus. It also helped me overcome my fear of getting involved. The faculty has been very caring and is hands on when it comes to helping me. My professors and teachers are great I honestly can say they care and want us to succeed. They will take out the time to make sure we have no questions. They let us know about their office hours and tutoring. Langston is such a great school to attend. It is so many things you can learn while being at this HBCU! Everyone is so welcoming and friendly; you cannot help but to smile everyday.
Here at Langston University everybody is very cool and is a big happy family. The campus is a beautiful, just like the people. The dorms are magnificent because they're like apartments. The campus food isn't always that great and I would like to see a change it that (except of Taco Tuesday and Fish Friday), but there are other places like the Lion Den, the campus store, and the Lions Grill. The professors are excellent at their jobs and make you comfortable. The work sometimes a lot but very capable to get done with all the resources. When it comes to sports, parties, and events everybody shows up and support. This is a small town but there are great places nearby. Langston provides a trolley that takes you places. Langston posses a police station and the policemen are fun and make sure students and the campus is safe. Yes, this is a HBCU yet, there are many ethnic groups. Overall, I love my HBCU and it has been a GREAT experience so far and I do plan on coming back.
