My HBCU is an amazing 4 year private school. My school offers a great deal of programs to study and major in. We offer a variety of sports from cheerleading, baseball, softball, basketball etc. Our faculty and staff are very helpful and attend to our needs as students. Our campus as a whole is like one big family, if someone has a problem academically or personally we all think of it as our problems and try to come with ways to help and solve it, we help each other with everything. Our homecomings are even more family oriented, every year at homecoming we always have a big bonfire where the alumni come back and share past experiences and have a good time with friends and family. We also have a wide range of organizations and clubs starting from Omega Psi Phi, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Sigma Ghama Rho and many clubs to name. When you join a sorority or a fraternity they make you feel like a family.

Morris College is a private four year historically back college in the city of Sumter South Carolina. My experience here at Morris has been amazing. Morris staff and faculty really cares about their students and makes sure that their are more than successful when they leave their campus and start whatever profession they so chose to go in. There are many cubs and organizations to join here at Morris and a number of Greek life groups. Attending Morris college as a student has been one of the best decisions i have ever made.
Upon entering Morris College I thought it would be a great experience. I was sadly mistaken when it came to student life, and the dorm environment. There were so many things that needed to be fixed that went unattended to. After several student complaints and a protest some needs were met. I honestly feel that students are paying for five star quality living, and are receiving two stars. I personally would go back to finish my freshman year then transfer. However, if some much needed changes are made such as: The President, the Dean of Students, and the Dorm Director then I may consider returning all 4 years. When it comes to professors and academics there are no complaints. If you invest in your education as you are supposed to at Morris College, then academic excellence is not very hard to achieve.
