Our Alumni


Meet some of our alumni and find out how Howard University Athletics impacted their time at Howard University. 

“I arrived at Howard University after the riots during summer 1968. I remember this “inner voice” saying to me you have arrived you are a student-athlete at Howard University the Mecca of Black education...a sacred place of higher education. It was the start of four magnificent years of interaction with people who would impact my life as a student-athlete and prepare me for life after HU.”

“Being a cheerleader for Howard University was pure joy.  Through teamwork and leadership, I helped to rally students behind our athletes, with an undeniable school spirit of a true Howard Bison.”
