(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.
Their frustrations — often paired with affection and pride for the school — were both immediate and minute, longstanding and sweeping.
They complained about the air conditioning breaking down, mold in dorms, bureaucratic run-arounds, high tuition, rats, and hassles with financial aid.
University spokespeople and an alumni leader did not immediately respond to requests for comment Wednesday evening.
The university president posted a message on Twitter.
