Morgan is cool. College depends on YOU though. I'm the type of person who can make the best out of any environment and milk it for all its resources to get what I want and achieve my goals. Some people can't do that, so they get discouraged. I love Morgan for all that its taught me, and all I have gained here. Some ppl will say the same thing that the guy said about VSU, minus the poorly renovated part. Our campus is under constant construction. We just got a new library, new student center, new parking garage and new telecom building all within the last 2 years.
Yes morgan has an excellent tv production program and students have to create their own works from what I understand. We just got a new telecom building. I don't know about Dr.kapano, I am a business major. But I hear the telecom dept is on the rise.
Depends on what you want your major to be. I chose Morgan over Howard. I got scholarships to both, but Morgan paid for EVERYTHING, so i took it. I'm a finance major, econ minor. Morgan has an excellent business program, Howard is known for their business program. It all depends on what you want to do.
I was never the person to go after the HYPE around schools, and now that I'm a senior around companies. I go with what is best for ME, not everyone else. I wanted to go somewhere that had my major, that would be free, and had a good name. So I chose Morgan, and I never looked back. I don't know too much about VSU, but like I said it depends on what YOU are looking for in a school.
YES I did make the right decision....if you are very driven then nothing should keep you from achieving your goals...If YOU personally feel like you wouldn't be able to make it with an HBCU degree then go somewhere where its easier for you to do so.

A Man who is a MAN...excluding physical characteristics
I want a Man who is secure with himself, respectful, ambitious, intelligent, caring,strong and assertive (doesn't let me run over him becuz i will if he does), able to provide/take constructive criticism
First Day. I don't remember. I can remember like the day b4 the first day when we were all outside chillin in front of the library. There was a spades game going on and everyone was just talkin about what their schedule looked like. That was the night my future b/f and I found out we had the same teacher for Bio lol. I got his number the next day so he could be my study partner. That was 3 years ago, and we are still happily together
Morgan is cool, I know plenty of Bio majors there and since we are right down the street from John Hopkins University, many of them do research there over the summer. John Hopkins is one of the top Med schools in the world so them doing research gets them a foot in the door for Med School.
Im a business major and the Bio and Chem classes I did take were hard as hell. (I had to take the honors section which is basically the same as the one Bio majors take) I give props to anyone who makes it through that program.
Campus life is cool although there are no parties on campus and Morgan is a dry campus which also means no alcohol. All the parties are held at clubs nearby which is better than a house party in my opinion. Dorm life sux but if you must baldwin and cummings are decent.
LOL...My b/f is 1st generation 100% Nigerian-American ( I'm Black)...and so are many of my friends at Morgan. They all claim Nigeria and even speak with an accent to each other.About half of the guys say they wouldn't marry a Nigerian chick but ALL the girls are completely loyal to their countrymen and sometimes exclusively to their ethnic group.They all rep their heritage though but my b/f hates how the older Nigerians act. So closed minded and stuck up so he says.
Its up to you...whats ur major of choice? UVA has an excellent business school and Hampton's is okay as well. UVA is a top school and so is Hampton (for an HBCU).
Really it depends on what ur looking for...you can get good jobs coming out of both schools.You'll be put into the affirmative action bin all your life as long you aren't checking off the Caucasian box or they see your skin color. So that doesn't matter. I know plenty of Ivy League students in diversity initiative programs.Many top companies have these programs and who cares how you got in? You got in didnt you?
College debt is good debt and as long as you plan on doing something with your life and you work hard to ensure it...that debt doesn't matter as long as you pay it off. You may be able to get more scholarship money while in school depending on how ur grades look.
The lifestyles will also be different between the two schools. So whatever type of lifestyle you want could also be a factor.
