There Are Barely Any Guys! Howard has WAY TOO MANY females on campus. Females make up about 75% of the population. So obviously there are not enough males to go around. You also have to account for the fact that there are guys who are not attracted to females, the guys who try to date multiple girls, and the guys who are already in exclusive relationships. So in the end, that means there's about 20 available guys on campus. Of those 20 young men, they are mostly nice, pretty down to earth, and stylish. However, for guys who are interested in coming to Howard, you will have a plethora of women to choose from. They are all gorgeous and fashionable. However, you will have to get past some of the snobby girls to find the good ones.
There are two iLabs on campus, one of which is open 24 hours a day. They are very helpful and you can print in them for free. The libraries also have computers and printing services. All of the computers in the labs and libraries are very nice. The wireless network can be a bit sketchy at times, especially depending on where you live on campus. Most students have their own computers, it makes taking notes in class so much easier. Not a lot of people have their own printers, but they do come in handy when you need to print something at the last minute.
Being in DC is so much fun and there's so much to do. I love being able to go to the Smithsonian museums whenever I have some free time. Many areas of the city are really beautiful; however, the neighborhood that Howard is in is not very good. There are often cases of robbery while students are out around the campus at night. The local community feels that Howard does not do enough to assist them and to improve the community, but that is not true. Howard goes out into the community and has youth outreach programs. Many of the students are always willing to participate in any type of volunteer opportunity that is offered in the surrounding community or elsewhere. Overall if you take the necessary safety precautions and keep an eye on your back you should be fine. Howard does offer shuttle services and escort services so that students don't have to walk around campus by themselves (especially at night).
