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!
Review Morgan State University
Morgan State University is located in the heart of Baltimore City Maryland it is a mixture of urban and suburban living. Morgan State was first founded as a Bible College in the early 1900 and soon evolved into a multi-discipline school. The professors here come from a wide variety of background and offer real world experience to their classroom. Morgan State now boasts of basketball team, football team as well as soroities and fraternities. There are departments that help students who are struggling financially to students with disabilities and need extra help around the campus. Overall I find Morgan State to be a four year college on the rise. When I finally earn my degree, I hope to leave my mark as one who choose the right school, the right major,and the right scholarship !
A great university having diversity at its best. Accredited university having high class majors..Lot of highly qualified faculty from around the country and around world to share their expertise and knowledge. A very positive, vibrant atmosphere for learning. Professors are friendly, supportive and allow students to grow in there thinking ideas.. learning becomes so easy and fun..
Also the schedule of classes permits working in day time and learning at night so students can work at the same time learn.. Also very important there is a unity in diversity.. so much to learn from other country students.. new thinking, concepts, culture... Amazing experience..
in short diversity, knowledge, great professors, amazing experience, growth under one roof...
