 Howard University Recommendations to apply

Entrepreneur & Proud Alum
My experience at Howard was invaluable. It is highly respected school with outstanding professors that not only teach but inspire. As an entrepreneur, I can attest that Howard prepares students to be independent thinkers and helps cultivate the confidence needed to create your own path in life. I developed friendships as well as a professional network that have continued well beyond my four years at school.
