^^^ I know some people who go there and love it and I know some people that can't stand it.. I think it's all based on what you make of it.
Lol...This is very true. Its the best piece of advice I have to offer at least. HU is what you make it. Hampton can be EXTREMELY boring if you let it. Personally, I wanted HIU since 8th grade, so regardless of anything else, I was gonna make it poppin. There are very few "on campus" parties, but some of the parties thrown off campus get it in. And we've cracked up a few bottlez of drank and thrown a couple of impromptu twirk sessions right inside the dorms. It happens... You just have to work at it.
I hate to break it to you ladies, but this is going to be par for the course if you decide on Hampton. Not answering phones/rudeness etc is something that you will become quite accustomed to. Not to deter you, Hampton is a great school other than their administrative duties.
I'm going to major in Pharmacy too!
I don't know how far you are into it but I heard it was really hard. I was wondering if it was hard because of the amount of classes we have to take, or the type of classes. Like.. is it hard because it is a lot of work or is it hard because the classes are hard? I don't know if that made any sense lol
But also, what made you decide to change your major?
Sorry!! I'm like..some months late, but if your a freshman, you're probably just now taking Professions of Pharmacy I so hopefully it'll still be helpful. Okay, as far as the classes go in the school of pharmacy, they really aren't extremely challenging. PP1 semester, PHA 102 (freshman year) is basically just background information on the profession of pharmacy. I know you guys have a different teacher this year, but last year we were broken up into groups and did intense research on different drugs, but it wasn't TOO serious. First semester sophomore year was a little bit more difficult to get through because of all the rote memorization necessary to get through Medical Terminology (PHA 201). Like...flash cards and study groups were definitely needed to even think about getting through that class. And Second semester sophomore year, you take Pharmaceutical Calculations (PHA 202) and this is whats kicking my ass right now! Its only a one credit class, but the professor is extremely dry and...ugh. I'm not a fan, but thats not why I'm in school. I actually haven't changed my major as of yet, but since the school of pharmacy is "rumored" to be on "probation"...whatever that means I'm still considering it. The dean of the school of pharm, Dean McLean is coming to speak with us wednesday so0o...yea. Hope this helped!
Okay...I'm a sophomore at Hampton and I hope the little bit of knowledge I'm about to drop will help somewhat. As far as fashion goes, Hampton men and women alike, love to dress at Hampton. There's nothing wrong with it, and don't feel like you'll be some kind of lepper if you're not walking around in Manolo Blahniks and silk scarves 24/7. It isn't that serious at all. Like yourself, I'm definitely a tee-shirt and jeans kind of girl and I want to be buried in my Jordans. I don't feel any type of way when I walk around campus, I'm well received and I have friends...People wont judge you just because you're not walking the runway everyday. Sweats and sneakers will do ;=]. (Don't get it twisted tho...You will see alot of people walking around fly as hell. And on occasion [ogden events, professional events] you will need to be dressed a certain way as the young lady stated before. Its not terrible tho) Dorms...well as far as female dorms go...there are *counts* six? Lol...Twichell (whoo!!) Kelsey, Davidson, VC, Moton and Kenndedy (honors). Twitchell VC, Kennedy and Moton have air...Davidson and and Kelsey don't. Thats the biggest issue. As far as cleanliness, a janitorial staff maintains the restrooms on a daily basis, but if the girls on your floor are trifling, then the girls in your dorm are trifling!! I can't help you there...you'll find that anywhere. I loved my Twichell hall tho...and it wasn't too many girls on my floor cuz I was on the first so I guess I had it good. You mentioned an honors program. Well we have what is known as Honors college. Its a program that basically kicks your academic roster into full gear and makes try that much more. You basically enroll in UNVH 101 fall of freshman year, and this is supposed to tell you whether or not you want to pursue honors college. There are a lot of perks in being apart of honors college, and it affords you a lot more opportunities than you would normally have. Its overall a great program, and if your ambitious and determined I think you should definitely go for it. Oh…yea and there are plenty of people from MD at HU so don’t worry about that…you’ll be right at home. Hope I could be of some help, and I that either way you choose, you find the school that fits you best =]
aww...Go Smith!! I love that school...a lot of family ties there and if I wasn't so damn in love with my HIU I'd definitely be attending there now.
::sings:: onnnn ever oh dear old J.C.S.Uuuuuuuu lol...kay I'm done
The college expo is a GREAT oppurtunity!!!! It got me my first three acceptances ON THE SPOT!! As long as your grades are good and your scores are high, expect to be admitted to schools as long as you bring your official transcripts along. I got into Tuskeegee, JCSU, and VSU....I was so excited that day so I wish you all the best!!!
Very eventful. Hampton is generally pretty quiet monday thru friday so its definately exciting to see so many people on campus. Classes end early that friday of homecoming weekend because harvey knows that nobody with anytype of a social life is paying attention to anything. There are vendors all over the place around the SC...and inside the SC they have table and booths set up selling different things. The greeks of course are every where you look, just being on the yard and hosting different booths. Throughout the weekend...there's the concert (this year Plies, Trey Songz, Gorilla Zoe and some other ppl performed), the comedy show, the fashion show I believe...and of course a whole bunch of parties jumping off @ the different Hampton venues. Ehh...its really kind of foggy..sorry lol
annd..you wanted to know which greeks ran the yard?? *sigh*...
umm...I guess it depends on your view of "running the yard"....
In my opinion...Omega Psi Phi, Alpha Phi Alpha, and Phi Beta Sigma have the greatest presence on campus. Like..you see them allllll the time. You see the Iota's and the Kappa's around too...just not like you see the other 3 frats...not to the same degree I don't think.
As far as the sororities go...I'd have to say that Alpha Kappa Alpha are the most prominant org on campus purely because of their number. They definitely outnumber any of the other sororities on campus. Delta Sigma Theta is not on campus. Sigma Gamma Rho have a few members around, and the Zeta's do also. And I'm just giving you my opinion as how I see their presence around campus...not neccesarily which one is.."better" or whatever. I'm kinda socially inept when it comes to greek life beyond what I can see with my eyes...
As far as I hear...the communications department is great. Scripps Howard doesn't play...and neither does the Dean of the school. They are really a disciplined group of folks. My homie is in the school of journalism...and she had to wake up like every wedneday to go to an early morning morning review session thing at like 5 am so that she could prepare to take this test to actually allow them fully into the school. And from what I hear, the Dean is very well connected with a lot of people who are actually involved in media production and what not...granting his students great internships and jobs when the graduate.
Hope that helps =]
