10th graders Ashanti Washington & Summer Hall write about the college tour visit to Coppin State University


Coppin State University is a HBCU looking for hardworking, dedicated students. The university has a very diverse student population who come from various states such as New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. The average requirement for acceptance into the school is a 2.5 GPA, 930 SAT score and an 18 ACT score. Coppin State also provides the Coppins Honors Program which allows students to obtain a bachelors degree in 3 years rather than 4. They require a 3.0 GPA, 1080 SAT score, and a 22 ACT score for acceptance. 

Coppin State recommends that its students live on campus to build relationships with teachers and other students, especially their freshman year. Coppin State is not interested in becoming a big school; they would instead remain on the smaller side of the school population. A plus about CSU is that they are an NCAA division 1 school for sports. Men sports include basketball, football, tennis, track and field, etc. The women sports that the school provides is basketball, bowling, tennis, and softball. They also have clubs that are less competitive and do not compete with NCAA divisions which included soccer, lacrosse, and powderpuff. 

Overall, Coppin State University is a beautiful school and everyone on campus was friendly. If you're looking for a medium sized HBCU, this is a great choice!
