Reasons to attend and to not attend Morehouse College

To Attend

  • “The brotherhood. You have so many great brothers who have attended before you and so many great brothers who will attend after you.”
  • “The things you learn beyond the technical skills, like how to be professional. Morehouse cares about the whole man instead of just the student or the scholar.”
  • “The overall experience of being at an HBCU. You might not think that it’s diverse because it’s an HBCU, but people come from all walks of life to Morehouse and it’s a beautiful thing to see. To be in a Black space as a Black person, it’s a great place to learn about yourself and your culture and heritage.” [Between 2014-2016, 65% of students came from the South, with about 12% coming from the Northeast and about 13% coming from the Midwest.]
  • “In the Black community, Morehouse Men are really praised. We are praised by some, not by all, and I feel like we could do more to enhance that among younger generations. Especially with older people, it’s admirable and respected to be a Morehouse Man. If you come to Morehouse, you will be in a special class of men who have been historically great.”
  • “It’s an HBCU and going to an HBCU is an experience that affects your life and your future in many positive ways.”
  • “It’s a small school, so it’s easy to get to know people in your grade and in the other grades too. I have friends in all different grades.”

To Not Attend

  • “The financial aid office is hard to work with.” [HBCU’s across the country have been struggling financially.]
  • “The housing isn’t that great.”
  • “If you’re more of an introvert, you’re not going to have the best experience because, although it’s very academic, the school really encourages you to branch out and be more than just a student. You have to be a little adventurous and be able to get out of your comfort zone.”
  • “Don’t come to Morehouse if you’re looking for the stereotypical fun college experience. If you expect these years to be the most fun or best years of your life, that’s not what Morehouse is for. Morehouse is to set you up for the next 40 years of your life.”
