when i came to college i was expecting to have "That Experience" everyone always talked about. Well at Hampton you will never have that experience. I don't even know where to start, the dorms and all buildings are trash. As much as we pay in tuition there are chalk boards in classrooms. There is Nothing around the school, you have to drive or catch a cab to go anywhere. The school is very isolated. Campus is boring and there is basically no greek life. There are so many stupid rules. The administrators are always worried about the wrong things. Dont get me wrong , everywhere you go there will be rules. But hampton University takes it to another level.There are hardly any food choices, either the cafe, chick-fil-a, pirates grill,subway,tropical smoothie,or university cafe, and some of those places don't even accept gourmet dollars. The school is such a disappointment. I regret ever coming here. The one good thing here is the marine Environmental Science program. All of the professors are brilliant. Since its such a small program you develop great bonds with all the professors in the department. There is no nightlife unless you consider turning up in the harbors fun. Which gets very old very quick. I feel as though hampton University use to be a great school but it has fallen very far down.
This isn't "Hillman" or anything like it. The students are typical black students , it's nothing new if you previously went to predominantly African american school. I wouldn't recommend this school to my worst enemy.
