Howard University was founded shortly after the Civil War in 1866. Members of The First Congregational Society of Washington considered establishing a theological seminary for the education of African American clergymen. Within a few weeks, it was decided it would become a university. From 2008 through 2010 Howard University was ranked 2nd for America’s Best Black Colleges and graduated such persons as the 1st African American Mayor of New York City Hon. David Dinkins and the first woman to cast a vote in the national election Ms. Mary Ann Shadd Cary.

Rich in heritage, ethnicity, and culture, Howard University offers students a prestige environment when receiving a higher education. The University Center includes an art gallery; a recreation center with 12 bowling lanes; meeting and conference rooms; dining facilities; a digital auditorium; a 1500-person
capacity ballroom; lounges; and student government and administrative offices.
