I'm Going to College: Howard University



History: Shortly after the end of the American Civil War, members of the First Congregational Society of Washington considered establishing a theological seminary for the education of African-American clergymen.  The project quickly expanded to include a provision for establishing a university.  Howard University was named for General Oliver Otis Howard, a Civil War hero, who later served as President of the University from 1869-74.  Howard’s enrollment is approximately 10,300 undergraduate, graduate and professional students representing all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia and nearly 70 countries.



Famous Alumni:  Thurgood Marshal, US Supreme Court Justice;  Kamala Harris, US Senator from California; Toni Morrison, Pulitzer Prize and Nobel Prize-winning novelist; Taraji P. Henson, Actriz
