(The Washington Post) – Howard University students and alumni took their frustration public — and viral — Wednesday, with a gush of complaints on social media about problems at the iconic historically black university in Washington, D.C.

University spokespeople and an alumni leader did not immediately respond to requests for comment Wednesday evening.

The university president posted a message on Twitter.
