5 College Junior

Computers: There are computers every where at Alabama A&M University. There are 3 computer labs in the library. There are computer labs in each building in which your class may be held and also in your dormitory in which you reside in. No need for a lap top unless you want it for social usage

Guys & Girls: Its a fashion world at AAMU, since we have our own modeling organizations, the members of that organization dress to impress! Other than those members we have athletes that like to dress comfortable and southern belles whom like to dress classy.

Off-Campus Housing: The off - campus housing selection at Alabama A&M University are in variety. They are built for college students since there are three other Universities that reside in Huntsville. The pros of living off - campus is that you have your own privacy, your own place, it's close to the University and they work with college students with payment arrangements. The safety is outstanding. Each off-campus has secure coded gates that only activate if the residence is entering or house commanded from the residence apartment to allow that specific person to come in. The landlords are friendly in there are plenty of parking available. The cons are that you are off- campus, you may be late for class, and if you do not have a car you have to rely on someone to take you to school.

Off-Campus Dining: Outside restaurants probably save the lives of many of our students. Our cafe closes pretty quickly so around 8 or 9pm, you're hungry again. There's a wide selection of places to go.

Nightlife: Nightlife is for students who are 21 or older. There are a few 18-and-older clubs, but I don't attend clubs at all. House parties are better. They have a more relaxed vibe & are usually closer to campus.

Majors: Top Education in the Civil Engineering and Environmental Science majors. These programs prepare you for life after college. There are internships and work-study positions. The environmental scince department is highly enjoyable. The curriculum is challenging when it needs to be! And the workload is designed to grow the student. More facilities are needed, however the educators do what needs to be done.

Majors: I will have a dual degree upon graduating. I believe both of the programs I am in are second to none. The civi engineering department needs to higher professors who actually want to teach students. Aside from that, I love it. The environmental science department has some of the best professors you could ever find and everyone knows it. The administration need to treat the department better and stop trying to take all of the money generated. So many people have strived to make that department the best it can be...I Love It. I have no concerns about finding a career. I aspire to be an environmental engineer while growing an entrepreneural business and helping the underserved.

Greek Life: The greek life appears superficial. I am not greek and it is hard for me to understand why I should be if I am not seeking any friendship. Some volunteer, some party, some are just eye-candy. Most of the greeks have a "High and Mighty" attitude, however it does depend on the fraternity/sorority. Most non-greeks aspire to be greek. If it suits your fancy, I suppose.

Facilities: Alabama A&M's campus is unlike any other it is beautiful with unlimited potential. More effort only needs to be put into it. As well as people with the right intentions. We need more campus activities. The health and wellness center is a great addition to the hill. AAMU needs more grant money with is usually given to other schools instead, a sad truth.

Health & Safety: Overall It is a safe place to be. The exeption comes because the Campus is too accessible to people who have intention of malice. The student apartments need to be closed and monitored and the dormitories should as well.

1 College Senior

Facilities: The buildings on campus, except two or three, are all old, unkempt, and drab. Missing ceilings, bad classrooms, scarce resources, and bathrooms that are always out of toilet paper and soap or paper towels.

Diversity: The school is predominantly African American with no programs in place to diversify the campus. The administration is extremely lazy, which makes signing up/registering complete chaos. Many advisors at other colleges often tell you not to attend A&M because of problems well known in the area.

Athletics: Some students seem into the athletics, but it's not that big of a deal to most.

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: There really isn't anywhere to eat besides the cafeteria. You must go off campus to eat.

4 College Junior

Facilities: At AAMU, the Food Science Program is pretty exciting as an undergraduate. Most of the professors enjoy getting to know new students and students who may come off as shy. There are a lot of events the Food Science Department is involved in and students can take part in it as well. Not to mention that you won't go hungry when you are apart of the Food Science Program. Moreover, there are numerous ways that you can gain experience and grow at AAMU. If you know what you want to do and don't want to do, you will eventually find something that suits your needs.

Academics: The AAMU academic setting is pretty good. The professors are available during their office hours, most of the times, to assist you with any matters that you may have. The workload is generally enough for you to stay occupied for a day or more. It depends on what class you are taking. Your curriculum will usually require you to take the four core courses being English, Math, Science (Chemistry, Biology, etc.) and History before you start taking classes related to your major. You will generally have to register for classes a month prior to the month the semester ends since some classes will fill up rapidly. If you need a convenient area to study, the Learning Resources Center (LRC) is very convenient, but depends on what time you go there. Unless you find somewhere else that is fine for you to study, your room is the next best alternative.

3 College Junior

Computers: The computers at AAMU are pretty good. The computer labs don't become crowded too quick, but every now and then they will be. The network reliability operates at a decent pace for wired and wireless computers, but it depends on where you are on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: If you don't have a car there are not many places to visit for dining that are in walking distance. Best Wings is your best option.

Transportation: The only campus provided transportation outside of campus, is a bus ride once on Saturdays to the mall.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: Make sure that you have all of your ducks in a row before you enter the Financial Aid office. The counselors are helpful, but they can't do much if you haven't done your part.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

The A&M experience is excellent! Students who have graduated from A&M often say that there is no place like "The Hill." Sure, students complain about the long financial aid lines, old buildings, and out-of-date resources, but when asked if they would do it all over again and still make A&M their first choice, many have said they would. A&M is truly a "home away from home." It's a great place for students to discover who they are and who they can become. Being a historically black college, A&M has so much history engraved in its roots. After attending A&M, students gain a greater appreciation for their heritage and for those who came before them. Also, out of all the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), A&M has one of the best food science programs. It is one of the only HBCU's that has an accredited program. Most of the students who graduate from A&M with a food science degree are employed and working for major companies like Coca-Cola.  

A&M is a great school to attend. Lifelong friendships and connections are made on this campus. Students at A&M are more than classmates—they're family. They encourage and support each other throughout their academic journey.
