Morgan State is an excellent school. The professors and staff there have a vested interest in you not only as a student, but as a future leader. When I attended, they had just made several improvements including upgrades to McMechen Hall (School of Business) which was new at the time. Throughout the years, the progress has not stopped with the addition of several new buildings, programs, and opportunities. You really develop a network of lifelong friends (family) that will play a role for years to come. I would encourage anyone who wants that "college" experience but doesn't want to get lost in the shuffle of 60,000 students to go to Morgan State. Best choice ever!

Great school! The professors are awesome and really incorporate cultural competence into their lessons. There are always activities on campus to engage in and many clubs and fraternities and sororities. It is an open campus so there tends to be a lot of people that do not go to the school on campus and the food choices are very limited. On the plus side, the school is relatively inexpensive. I received various institutional grants and scholarships without having to apply for them. Morgan is a great school for mature students as well and offers automatic admission for students who have continuously been out of school 3+ years which is always great. Downside is there are no daycare/family services.
Morgan State University is an excellent school! I have been able to visit Morgan many times even before I was a student here. My family have all gone here and every time I have stepped foot on this campus, I felt a family connection. This school is a very close school, where most students know each other to a point where we are all family. The professors are great as well. Most professors are very caring towards their students and are willing to work with them on a daily basis to ensure that their students are retaining the information and passing the class. The motto here at Morgan State University is, "Growing the Future, Leading the World" and that is something that Morgan takes very seriously. We believe in getting the best education at a school that treats you great.
In terms of what Morgan needs to change is the food, it could be better. However, it is not bad at all and there are many options depending on what the person is looking for.
