CONGRATS!!!!!! Are you planning to attend Pre Orientation? It's in July, I blieve. Also, I have a friend who graduated with a degree in Psychology and she has no complaints about the program. I'll see if I can contact her and give you more info.

Congrats on your acceptance I have no clue about the Psych. Dept. but I wish you the best of luck. I got accepted as well so I might see you around campus this fall.

Pre-O is when you get to sign up for your fall classes early and you also take entrance/exit exams for classes you might be able to **** out of. For example, if you are good in math and Pre-Cal is required for your major, then you can **** out of it and not have to take it! Pre-O is usually in June or July. The regular freshmen/transfer student orientation is in August and thats a whole week of things. I cant explain it...just be prepared, lol

Some people are very friendly, some people will be rude. But hey, thats life. Out of the freshmen dorms I would say the Annex is the best. It's newer and it's suite-style so you have one roomate and share a bathroom with the two girls next door. However, I know plenty of girls who stayed in the Quad and loved every single minute of it! The Howard guys are cool--I was one! I liked being around other black college men because they were/are really some go-getters and are very intelligent. On the flip side, a few are some hoe's. But hey, thats life too lol. The food is good at the Restaurant and the Punch Out. I dont like the Cafe (which is where most freshmen eat). The Cafe **** in my opinion. But check out Jazmines in the School of B, The A Building and the School of Medicine. There is also Starbucks, Five Guys Burgers and Fries, McDonalds, Subway and a Chinese food place on campus. Some professors are very helpful, while others you can never seem to find. Luckily, all my professors were readily available whenever I needed them. Im not too sure about Psych professors, though. If you like museums and monuments, you can go to the National Mall. There is a movie theatre near campus with restaurants and shopping nearby. For fun my friends and I would usually go to the mall, out to eat and maybe to a bar for some drinks. Parties are cool, but just not something we would do all the time. Hope that helps!
