Howard guys and girls are always passionate about whatever they do—be it studying, partying, or getting dressed up. And even though the campus was recently voted the second most fashionable university in the country by Women’s Wear Daily, nobody is judged by their fashion sense, or lack thereof. You don’t need to be dressed to the nines or wear bank-breaking outfits to fit in or make friends here—people are ready to accept you and relate to you based on your status as a Bison, first and foremost.
With a female population that severely outnumbers the male population, there is often fierce competition between the girls to snag a good guy. Most Howard girls are genuinely friendly and have great personalities. And since HU students come from all over the globe, they all have something unique and different to offer. There are the homebodies, the fashion mavens, the earth mothers, the tomboys, and so on. The guys are, perhaps, a little more conventional. Given the grave male-to-female ratio, there’s always temptation for them to play around, and some do to a large degree. Generally, speaking, though Howard guys and girls are friendly, intelligent, personable, often outrageous, easygoing, and of course, extremely hot individuals who never cease to work hard and play hard.
