WELCOME TO HOWARD UNIVERSITY!!!! This Question and Answer thread was developed to answer ANY and EVERY inquiry from those who have officially selected Howard University as their place for academic growth! And for those who are still undecided about where you will be in the fall, hopefully this thread will help you lean towards furthering your education at HU If you have any questions pertaining to Howard University, registration, athletics, Greek life, campus life, Homecoming, Washington, DC, clubs, shopping malls, classes, majors, minors, roomates, etc. DO NOT HESITATE TO ASK QUESTIONS! Although Howard alumni and students are not experts in all areas of college life, we will try our best to answer your questions directly and in a timely manner. There are many current Bison and HU alums who post on this board.If you have a question that you are not comfortable posting in the open forum, utilize the PM (private messaging).

I have a question. How good are the cheerleaders? I know I have to be a second semester freshman to try out but is it worth it?

My package is cool I got the Legacy scholarship, so my tuition is paid for They still gave me loans though, so I'm still trying to get some more scholarships What made you choose Fisk?
They have a Nurisng program with Vanderbilt. Its small. I like the faculty. They were faster than Howard and tried to help me more.

WELCOME TO THE BISON FAMILY! The cheerleaders at Howard are complicated...there is a Blue Squad and a White Squad (I dont know the difference so dont ask LOL!). And the football cheerleaders are different from the basketball cheerleaders. Freshmen have cheered before...there have been try-outs held in August in past years for freshmen students but I'm sure if they still do them. There are a few clips on You Tube for you to check out: YouTube - Howard University "Bison" Cheerleaders YouTube - Howard University Bison Cheerleaders 3

Awww....I wanted you to come to Howard. But I'm sure you will enjoy Fisk; I know a few who went there and loved it!

Its cool...You should like Fisk. Tennessee State and Meharry are the other HBCUs in Nashville so you'll see others from Black colleges in the city. Plus, like you said, Vanderbilt is a good choice for grad school and is also in the area.

Oh really, I didn't know Meharry was an HBCU.

I was looking into Meharry for Medical School...but if I'm not fed up with Howard I might stay there. I didn't know it was an HBCU until recently either though.

It’s good to see that you are coming to Tennessee. Fisk University and Vanderbilt are good universities. Nashville is home to 3 HBCU’s (TSU, Fisk University, Meharry Medical College) and several other Universities/Colleges (Vanderbilt, Belmont, Lipscomb, Trevecca, Nashville School of Law, MTSU), which means you will encounter several young adults.
