Morehouse College Reviews
The HBCU experience at Morehouse College is almost uncontested. Professors treat truly care about you and will do anything possible to help you. Athletically, I have thoroughly enjoyed myself as well. With a little time management, you can be able to do any extra-curricular activity you want. My only complaint is the freshman dorms. They are still very traditional, almost as if they were never renovated. Besides that, everything else is great. Be sure to network when you get there. Morehouse has a strong network of graduates.
Morehouse started online classes March 24. Students logged-in, professors took roll, classes started on Atlanta time as we were accustomed too, taught by sharing screen, interactive settings. Online is not what I prefer but the professors made the best of the situation available. Campus life is always going to be my/our preference.
The online learning experience was poor. I attribute this to the Covid 19 crises that forced a hasty and unexpected transition from traditional in-person classes to online remote learning. Neither Students or Faculty was prepared for this and the appropriate online curriculum was not in place. I imagine this issue was not unique to Morehouse, but a problem in all colleges across the nation.
