Black Excellence abounds at Howard University. The students we met are motivated, sharp, resourceful, and intellectually curious leaders.
It’s no surprise that Howard University is the number one producer of black students who go on to medical school or get PhDs in the STEM field.
Students also get amazing business opportunities through varied corporate sponsors including: Disney, Amazon Prime Video, and Google.
Howard University was chartered on March 2, 1867 as an HBCU (historically black college or university) Howard’s goal is to make contributions to the African diaspora and throughout the world.
Howard requires all 1st and 2nd year students to live on campus, creating a strong residential community. They also have an active Greek life on campus, which includes the Divine 9 (5 of them started at Howard).
While we toured during the summer, the student panel described DJ block parties, spoken word competitions, a myriad of speakers, and activities that abound on campus.
Howard is located in Northwest DC, which is not the nicest neighborhood. However, it is very close to other parts of DC, & students take advantage of all DC has to offer in terms of internships, museums, restaurants, & culture.
