    I advice any future Bison to experience Howard for themselves. Worry less about the trending Twitter post, celebrity alumni, and great expectation. Enjoy each moment on campus like you are already the notable alum.

    Howard University, affectionately known as The Mecca, is the place where your academic, professional, and social abilities will be tested and honed on a daily basis. Coming to Howard will be the best decision of your life, as long as you have to will to overcome obstacles. This school is NOT for the faint of heart. To be a bison, you must have, or at least exhibit, tenacity. Howard prepares you for the real world in a way that you couldn’t even imagine, and you would not understand until you experience it.
