Fall Open House is perfect for students who want to learn what it takes to become a part of the rich legacy and tradition of Howard University. At Open House, you and your family will have the opportunity to talk with current Howard students, faculty, and staff. The University’s best student ambassadors will lead you on tours of our beautiful hilltop campus. Our admission staff will be on hand to answer your questions, guide you through the application process, and help you to discover all that Howard has to offer you. The program begins in Cramton Auditorium at 9AM followed by our “HU College Fair”  where all of our undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs are invited to participate. Following the college fair, our guests are invited to stay for the football game where our Howard University Bison take on the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats. Open House guests will be provided with tickets to the game.
