This school puts up such a front

May 24 2014Accounting
This school puts up such a front. Please do not attend, HBCU's already have a bad reputation and quite frankly this school is not helping. The academics are sub-par and the administrators don't give a crap about the students, specifically the Vice President of student affairs. The campus is very low grade especially the dorms with mold and rodent problems. The achiol's tuition is high but there is no evidence that the money is actually going into building a better institution. Only 18% of alumni give back to the school which shows that many of them do not feel that the money will go to good use.

If you want to be in a city

Nov 10 2013Business - Management and Administration
If you want to be in a city where nothing is going on people are rude and life is boring Hampton University is the place. Do not let high school day fool you. You will get treated like a little kid but expected to act like an adult. You will not have visitation as long as you live on campus and when you finally get it it's only on the weekend for like 4 hrs. You can't even order pizza after 10 pm because the gate closes to the University at 11pm. I have a better time going to other peoples campus where you can experience a REAL COLLEGE LIFE. I have been here unfortunately for 3 years and finally have my car down here. If you are from a big city you will especially hate Hampton and what little it has to offer.

The school is very fake

The school is very fake. When you come for tours and for High School Day, they put on a facade as if the school is better than what it rally is. If you are interested in attending this school, visit it on a random day to see how the campus really is. The school is careless as they don't meet the needs of students. If you have special dietary need or health restrictions, this school is not the school for you. As a vegetarian, it is impossible to eat here. everything either has meat or is unhealthy. Its hard to be healthy as they only prepare food that will raise your blood pressure or cause you to get diabetes. I've been served uncooked food numerous times the cafeteria staff seems to be careless about the problem. We as students spend $4,000 on a MANDATORY meal plan that isn't satisfactory. They maintenance on campus is very poor as well. There are many buildings that don't have air conditioning. House keeping does not do their job by keeping up the bathrooms. There are constantly electrical issues with elevators where students are lead to walk 9 flights of stairs. Staff here only cares about the students even though the school is very small. Theres a lot of unorganization around campus from a lot of professors leaving the school and the university was forced to replace them with random professors that do not know what they're doing. Overall the school has unecessary issues that we don't deserve.
