Imagine getting to school on your first week and encountering not other friendly students in your dorm but a rat infestation. That was the problem faced by some students at Howard University, who took to social media in a #TakeBackHU protest this week. Given the money students and families are shelling out for and education the conditions in some dorms was deplorable, says protestors.
Officials at Howard University on Thursday met with students who have been complaining about rats, mold, high tuition and other issues at the school, one of the oldest historically black U.S. colleges.
Howard students first vented complaints on Twitter using the hashtag #TakeBackHU, which started trending nationally on Wednesday.
