Shaw University Reviews
Review Shaw University
Shaw University is very diverse. Me coming from New York I look forward to being around that type of environment. Just because Shaw University is A HBCU, it doesn't mean that only black students attend. I've met great friends so far and gained a lot of knowledge and experience in just short amount of time. If I can change one thing about Shaw University it would be that they offered more extra curricular activities because it is important to keep students involved.
As I began my college career I thought it would be pretty cool fulfilling my dream of attending a historically black college. Shaw university is a small university; which is exactly what I wanted. Some of the teachers cared for your success in college. Shaw University is right downtown with a lot of activities and museums to visit. The cafeteria food wasn't all that bad, but then again I barely at in the café. one thing I would lie them to improve with is the dorms and bathroom situation. I think the dorms just needs to be rebuilt as a whole.
My experience at Shaw University was very interesting I learned a lot of facts while walking on campus. It's a wonderful school to go to if you don't necessarily like walking because the campus is small. The food is great and the Professors are nice and very understanding!
