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.
Review Morgan State University
Morgan State University is an Institution with many careers to succeed in. It holds hundreds of programs for students to join and allows them to create countless opportunities within. As a student for 3 years already, I have found ways to network and work with others that have the same interest as me. As well as working alongside with them to help me get further into reaching my goals as a Physical Therapy major. The professors and advisors are more than willing to work overtime to help you succeed in any field you may find difficulty in. The campus is also found as a 'National Treasure' as it creates a beautiful landmark that is well known within the city of Baltimore, Maryland. As it is also well known as an Historically Black College/University, it is more than welcoming to those of other ethnicities as it only focuses on the education of others rather than race or culture. Morgan State is a school that will help students succeed in their goals they set for the future!
I attended Morgan for both undergrad and graduate schooling so that alone should show how much I love my HBCU. I love the atmosphere at Morgan State University especially during Homecoming time. We have a ton of fun! The Band, The Football team, The School pride. October was always my favorite month at Morgan State University.
