Fall Open House

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 representatives 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. Finally, you are invited to join us for our first home football game of the season as the Howard University Bison take on the Bethune-Cookman University Wildcats at 1pm in Greene Stadium.

Visit Washington D.C.

Additional Suggestions 

The month of September is a great time to visit Washington D.C. Summer’s humid afternoons are gone, leaving sunny and comfortable days to tour some of the District’s world-class attractions. If you are planning to stay in the area for the weekend, take the opportunity to visit the free Smithsonian museums and zoo, attend a show or concert at the Kennedy Center, hike at Great Falls Park, explore Mount Vernon, be intrigued at the International Spy Museum, or visit national monuments like the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Lincoln Memorials!
