This is what his awareness event, “Disable the Label” is all about. “It’s geared to bring disability awareness to Morgan […]

Morgan State’s plans on the future of student housing

Morgan State University’s administration is looking ahead for housing improvements following the overflow of waitlisted students this fall semester. This semester, Morgan State experienced an increase in incoming freshman and transfer students with a 37 percent increase in female student enrollment.
