Campus Life

Find Your Community

Howard University students stand on the shoulders of giants. That legacy lives on today in our close-knit Bison community, where Black scholars thrive both intellectually and emotionally. Some features of the vibrant student life at Howard include our 200+ clubs, 21 Division I athletic teams, fulfilling service opportunities, historically Black Greek organizations, one of the most popular Homecoming events in the country, and so much more.

If you're looking for an exciting and strategic location to attend college in the coming years, there's no better place than Washington, D.C. The nation’s capital offers a diverse population and multicultural atmosphere, an array of historic landmarks, and many venues for soaking up arts and entertainment. What’s more, D.C. offers career opportunities in both the public and private sectors, and the connections Howard provides to both sectors are unrivaled.

So what are you waiting for? Find your community among the Bison.

Imagine the Possibilities.

Howard University is a place where different cultures and people can intermingle and learn about their history and heritage. Howard also has a community for every cultural group, something that definitely does not apply to most schools.
