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 has created a family-oriented environment. I know once i graduate, I can always come back to my home away from home. Langston University does their due diligence to hire staff that want to see their student succeed and thrive in their desired career path. With a motto "Education for Service", LAngston has enstilled the values of giving back to your community. Organizations are encouraged or even required to participate in community service activities at least twice a semester. As the only Historical Black University in Oklahoma, Langston University give minorities and the academically-challenged an an equal opportunity to recieve a bachelors degree. Langston University was established to allow African Americans to recieve a degree in teaching for Black children to recieve a proper education. Langston works hard to produce graduates that will continue its legacy.
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!
