Hampton University is a prestigious Historically Black University that serves as an educational foundation for progressive young African Americans. All Hamptonians are not snobby; there is a diverse student body with people from all walks of life. Simply put—we work hard, play hard and have goals and ambitions that do not include associating with people who misspell simple words such as “pride” or refer to our incredibly influential university as “a black school”.
Anyone who thinks Hampton University’s women are “stuck up or gold diggers” isn’t good enough to catch one…that’s because we know we deserve better.
