Reviews for Hampton University
The friendships you build here last a lifetime, the school has a very friendly "family" feeling. What I like most about the school is that as you get to know your professor on a personal level he/she really will look out for your well being in multiple ways.
Workload all depends on how you manage your time, nothing is too bad. Class size is relatively small for about half the classes so you get to build a personal relationship with the professors. As of right now the school is known for its business program but with the proton therapy center just being built not to long ago, and the construction on our new bio-medical research facility concluding Spring 2014, we are seeing a shift in academic focus here at HU.
Just about all of the Greek organizations are back on the yard so the social atmosphere is really stepping up, and there are over 100 diff clubs and organizations to join, it's actually pretty hard to stay bored.
I actually love my school. You have to learn to make you fun here at Hampton. The people I have met and interacted with have all been great. I have many memories here that I will never forget and met people who I will be friends with for the rest of my life.
I am a student in the 5 year MBA program which is a great program. It is definitely focused on career placement with top companies and family oriented. The professors definitely challenge you and make sure you learn what you need in order to be prepared for the real world.
College life at Hampton is definitely what you make it. It causes you to get out and meet people. There arent as many party related things as people would like so it has its ups and downs. There are many organizations on campus for you to join and always something going on.
I had a great experience during my Undergrad studies at Hampton. The University does not offer much financial aid in comparison to most other colleges and universities, and it seems like there was a fee associated with everything. From what I can remember, what students pay at Hampton University does not compare to the living conditions we are accustomed to. The housing has encountered years of wear and tear with almost no renovations. Buildings with broken tiles, exposed pipes and broken elevators make you wonder if it is a safe location for so many students to congregate in.
Classes were larger, and the work load was on the heavier side. I was a biology/Psychology major so the pre-requisite courses were always very large. The professors are always available for office hours and if you do well, they typically ask you to TA a course, which looks very good on your resume.
The Dining hall services are not great so many students resort to Chick-fil-a (amazing) or the Pirate Grill which is located in our Student Center. Other options close to campus are Chinese Food, Burger King, or The University Cafe. I would say that it is important to have a car around your junior and senior year so that you can live office campus and avoid additional fees, housing and meal plans can get expensive, and in my opinion it is just not worth it.
