Shaw University Reviews
As a sophomore at Shaw, I always felt at ease on the campus. Just like any campus, it is diverse, interactive and always outgoing. Everyone on campus knows each other because the school is so small. I enjoy the classes because professors are always interacting with students and the library has available resources. Located in the downtown Raleigh area, students can always find something to occupy themselves with on or off campus. One thing I will love to see changed at Shaw will be the lunch menu to serve more healthier meals and the dorms. Students complain about toilets breaking down, elevators being out of service, showers running cold water or being flooded. One time my team mate's room flooded because one of the bathroom water systems broke which caused water to run through out the night and flooding nearby rooms. I understand the building is very old which requires constant maintenance but other than that I am enjoying my time at Shaw.
What most people would say about Shaw is that the athletic and wary dent kid is what makes this school great. Although more student activities would be better for the school, the athletics make up for the school pride. On the education side, classes are not too challenging but teachers will help you if you really want that higher grade. Campus dorms are not the cleanest but the people living in the dorm makes up for the student living. Safety is always an issue on campus. The university will not do anything until an incident happens. Overall the school is pretty decent.
I will be a freshman this upcoming school year so I can only rate about my experience during my campus orientation. The staff and students were very friendly and helpful answering all of my questions. Being that I graduated from a private school and stayed on campus, it felt like home with a familiar environment . This transition from high school to college will be a breeze!
