Reasons to attend and to not attend Howard University

To Attend

  • “I feel like I’ve found so much pride in myself and in my people and what I can do from the type of support that Howard gives you. It might not be directly from Howard, but speaking to people who have graduated from Howard who have gone to do great things is really empowering. If you’re a change-agent, Howard is the place to be.”
  • “The history behind Howard and the sense of meaning you feel here.”
  • “You’re on your own and have to be independent, so you have to grow up quickly. That’s one of the biggest things I’ve learned here.”
  • “Howard is a great community of people. Howard people all share very similar struggles and experiences so it’s easy to talk to people and share common goals.”
  • “When it comes to connections and networking, Howard is a great place to further your education, career, and build relationships for the future.”

To Not Attend

  • “Don’t come to Howard if you’re not willing to advocate for yourself.”
  • “Financial aid here can be difficult to work with.”
  • “It’s expensive.” [Total costs for the 2018-2019 year were about $45,000.]
  • “I don’t think you should come to Howard if you’re not the type of person that’s willing to fight for their education or stand for something. At times, students find ourselves having to self-advocate because Howard is not perfect.”
  • “The disorganization can be discouraging a lot of the time.”
