| Hampton isn't a bad school , as long as you hang with the right people and do the work your supposed to do . For me it is not worth the amount of money your paying and the dorms are shitty ( excuse my language) but thats how I feel. There isn't much to do around Hampton , especially if you don't have a car which you can't have until your junior year =( , I would recommend living off campus because its way cheaper and way more cleaner. I'm transferring because I hated the location and I just didn't like it anymore .. |

| I am currently at HU for my second bachelors degree, and have had an extremely disappointing experience with this university. The communication between the main campus and College of Virginia Beach, which I attend, is poor. Deadlines are often missed simply because the communication is not there. Registration is done online and THEN in person, as it was done in the 70's when my parents when to college. I am not one to complain, however this school is not worth the trouble and I would like others to know that. |

| Hampton is probably one of the biggest bait universities I have ever encountered. I've always gone to diverse public schools, and upon entering Hampton, I could not believe how much diversity simply wasn't available, socially, culturally or educationally.|
When it comes to HBCUs, the best are likely Howard, Spelman or Morehouse. The rest honestly fall into the same category. It's great if you want to stay "comfortable" and remain enclosed in your race, but if you're someone who is globally minded and crave a diverse educational environment, look elsewhere.
Money is not used well at Hampton, going more towards events and things that make the president and faculty look good to other universities as opposed to actually nurturing and helping the student body. The social life is largely composed of people just throwing awful parties off campus in the shady Hampton Harbor apartments that usually end in someone getting alcohol poisoning, getting maimed, raped, or getting shut down.Do your research before ever deciding to attend Hampton. You don't get what you pay for, and yes, all the rumors are true. I'm transferring at the end of this semester, and I could not get out soon enough.
