I loved the spirit of the campus and seeing other young students striving to gain the knowledge that would push them closer to their desired careers. I would recommend more practical assignments and less note taking because I believe it will improve student cooperation. I would summarize my undergrad experience as step one of the career discovery journey
I enjoyed my HBCU experience at Morgan State. I learned a lot about myself and my ancestors. Although some courses were repetitive from High School, I learned history that was not taught to me. Learning about my history, empowered me. I wish Morgan would invest more into their Fashion program.
