What's not to like? I loved everything except the price. The history, the preparation, the community, the legacy. Couldn't be more pleased with the distinction and honor of being a Morehouse Man!

I love Morehouse College, and I am glad I am attending this great institution. Coming to Morehouse, you can see the pride everyone from the students, to faculty and staff have at being here and it gives you a sense of self worth. No matter the major, every student here has the belief that they are on a mission to contribute to the good of mankind after their learning. One thing I would change at Morehouse would be the rising tuition costs. Over the years, tuition at Morehouse has steadily increased, and it is getting harder to help pay for education.
So far, I've really enjoyed my overall experience at Morehouse College. I'm currently an incoming freshman in the summer PSEP program. I'm from Cleveland, Ohio and the first thing that stands out and deals with the school is the weather. I'm not used to it always being this hot and just thinking about walking to all of my classes in this is horrifying. Besides all of that though, the people and staff apart of the school are very nice and courteous. The environment is very safe and clean. The whole atmosphere is very good since I have been here.
