Morehouse College is an illustrious with so much history. I was always a very introverted person who never liked to go out, but after witnessing all the activities and organizations on campus, I couldn't help bursting through my introverted tendencies. There's an organization or an event for everyone's taste and the brotherhood that we preach here is real, so be prepared to have support in every way, shape, and form. I will always see Morehouse as my
2nd family and that's a feeling you won't get from any other institution.

What I like about Morehouse College is the environment. It feels perfectly tailored for young African American men, like myself. There are plenty of opportunities for us to grow academically, socially and spiritually. I would like to see better quality dorms and a more efficient registration process.
Strong academics. Strong brotherhood. Bright and very intellectual student body. Rich history. Many successful alum. An experience like no other. Opportunity of a lifetime!
