There is a lot of security, fences, and barricades. Obey all rules including speed limits. That said, this campus is filled with gorgeous buildings. What looked like a covered bus shelter was really a lovely monument to president Lincoln. I couldn't see it all in one trip so I plan to go back. The museum is free. The parking is... More

No dislikes If I had a child I would definitely send him or her there. Historical Value is a plus in my book. Pretty campus, seems easy to get around and has a great view.

During the visit - the campus has rich history. Many of the Class rooms still have Chalk Boards. Old vs new Class room style rooms and equipment, along with the dorms. The Food is over priced, but I guess they need it make up for getting to modern times. Research All Options and visit all potential class room and dorms... More

A beautiful old university on the Hampton River. The grounds were meticulously groomed. The Clock tower has never been replace and is in excellent condition. I would have like to have gone in the church on campus but time was not with us. Maybe next time.

Love my "Home by the Sea!" The 35th Class Reunion was superfantastic. Big fun, rich fellowship, good food and lots of memories.

We stopped by Hampton University to visit the football team and coaches. I didn't realize it could be a lesson in history for my children as well. The Emancipation Oak, Booker T. Washington statue, Circle of Nations, and story of W.E.B Du Bois were a perfect addition to our homeschool history lesson. The downside: The grounds were not well maintained... More
