Great! Striving environment, where the staff and faculty accept you as family, making your learning experience greater. The opportunity to become dependent and ambitious, made my experience challenging, but without challenges, there would be no growth. The university offers ample opportunities for career and professional development, making students aware that there is opportunities through companies, entrepreneurship and investing.

Great experience the staff really wants to see the students succeed. There are many different organizations to choose from no matter what type of personality you have there is an organization waiting to welcome you with open arms. This school offers institutional aid grants to further help with the cost. There are many different tutoring sessions study groups etc if you need extra help academically. The bookstore offers price match on books. There are always activities on campus whether it is a game or an organization hosting a fun event all students are welcome whether you are apart of that org or not and it is free fun for all. I would highly recommend this school for anyone interested in higher education!
Morgan State University is a very good school, with everything comes cons but it isn't anything that cant be fixed or that they haven't tried to fix, or fixed already. A perfect place to network, to connect with others, to get real life experience, and have the best four years of your life. Originally a HBCU, but very diverse, the professors care about you, campus is large but very inviting. I recommend it to anyone thinking about going!
