NOTE(I am not tring to offend anyone, this is a serious question)
I am currently a Junior in High school, and my focus is completely on academics, and politics. I was speaking to an African-American friend of mine a couple of days ago, and what he said was obserd. We were speaking of where we wanted to attend college, and I told him “I’d like to attend Hampden-Sydney” He laughed at me and said that Morehouse was 100 times better than Hampden-Sydney. According to him Hampden-Sydney is full of rich, racist snobs. He said that Morehouse was comparable to top colleges like Dartmouth and Williams, while Hampden-Sydney was comparable to a mediocre public school.
This really amused me. The average incoming freshmen at Morehouse has a GPA of 3.11, the average incoming freshmen at Hampden-Sydney has a GPA of 3.5.(that’s a huge difference) Hampden-Sydney has a larger endowment, nicer facilities, and better professors. I don’t have anything against Morehouse(I know Dr. King went there, and I have great respect for him), but to say it is better than Hampden-Sydney is a joke. I think the black community puts Morehouse in a place where it doesn’t belong(the scores show that it’s not that great of a school academically. Why is Morehouse so overrated?
Spelling of Morehouse fixed so people can focus on the actual question - FC
