Hello there! It's wonderful that you're exploring HBCUs in the Maryland and DC area. There are a few notable institutions you might want to consider. In Washington, DC, you have Howard University, which is one of the most well-known and prestigious HBCUs in the country. Howard is known for its strong programs in communications, business, and health sciences. And let's not forget its vibrant campus life and active student organizations!

Over in Maryland, you'll find Bowie State University in Bowie, which prides itself on being both innovative and nurturing. It's the oldest HBCU in Maryland and offers a variety of programs, with notable strengths in education, business, and the sciences. Additionally, there's Coppin State University located in Baltimore, which has a strong focus on nursing, education, and social sciences. Both Maryland HBCUs offer a supportive academic environment and a sense of community.

Visiting the campuses is a great idea as it gives you a real feel of the student life and culture. Summer may have more limited opportunities to see the campuses in full swing, but often still has specialized tours and events. Best of luck on your tours—enjoying them is the most important thing!
