3 College Junior

Nightlife: I've never been to any major events but they all are give and usually sell out. Transportation is typically provided to students from campus. Covers are usually free until 11 or midnight.

College Junior

Campus Dining: Will be attending this fall. Has not yet begun classes.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I've enjoyed living here thus far. Commuting is best in the summer when students are home.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Still in the process of awarding financial aid. However, no problems so far.

Health & Safety: Will be attending classes this fall. Has not yet begun classes.

College Junior

Facilities: Will be attending classes this fall. Has not yet begun classes.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I've lived here two years before attending school here. Unless you live off campus, or on campus and have a car, restaurants are a substantial distance from housing. If you live on campus, eating healthy/vegan/vegetarian is almost impossible without access to a vehicle. The organic and natural food stores are located on the northeast side of town and require transportation. Walmart is at least five miles on either side of town, but there is a Winn Dixie. Almost everywhere gives a student discount, if not, they have an overabundance of deals and discounts that would defeat the purpose.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: With Tallahassee being a city with 3 colleges in it, the availability for housing is pretty abundant. However, the closer to campus, the more expensive the room. Not to mention interfering with the other campus' traffic.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: As of lately the financial aid office has had to let people go because of difficulties with losing scholarship information and failure to follow necessary procedures. It has been a real hassle to get my financial aid fortunately as a student athlete, our coach helped is push our name for what financial aid the players did need.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Florida A&M University is an African-American college. A college in which 95.1% of students are of African American Heritage. Though the population is mostly African american, many beliefs, political perspective, and acceptance are fairly diverse! As we all know, everybody is different regardless of skin color, nobody shares all of the same beliefs and we all still come together.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The Athletic teams are taking a turn in the right direction! As a member of the baseball team the popularity and success has taken a very positive turn in the right direction! The basketball and football teams are also very important to the school spirit and chemistry between students!

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Our greeks throw the best parties. They give pizza to students studying in the library late night during finals.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: At the games everybody comes out wear the school colors. Even basketball games are funny and lots of school spirit.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is good and bad. Your're right there on campus, you may or may not have a roommate. The price is too expensive. its much cheaper to stay off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You have some teachers that are great. class size varies up to 30 to 110 students. The courses are very interesting.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: FAMU has very good schools such as school of business, nursing, and pharmacy. Reaching out and recruiting is excellent.

Guys & Girls: like any Florida university diverse

3 College Student

Overall Experience: Some professors cannot teach and do not try to assist students. The chemistry is the worst. Learned it on line on my own or would not get it. physic exams are not what is taught in class and are not made by the professor so he states your in the mercy of the test back (WHAT?)

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: all types of prices and styles

3 College Student

Majors: its a capital city so I am sure it will not be difficult. I do plan on one but am not worried about finding one.

Florida A&M University will prepare you to excel in your future career. The professors push and encourage their students to go beyond their limits. There are no handouts at the University—you have to work hard and earn your grades. FAMU also offers lots of student organizations, and it’s recommended that you get involved with at least one. Many students met some of their best friends through campus organizations.

The University is also unique because it is rich in tradition and culture. Students here bleed orange and green, and their love for the University stays with them after graduation. In fact, FAMU has a huge alumni following, and alumni are constantly coming back to campus for events. Another unique thing about FAMU is the University’s award-winning marching band, Marching 100. The band has performed in Super Bowls, appeared on national TV, including CBS News and ESPN College Day, performed with Kanye West and Jamie Foxx at the 2006 Grammys, and was even asked by President Obama to play at one of his events. Many FAMU students say there is no doubt in their minds that they would choose the University again if they had the choice. This University is truly a home away from home and continues to produce educated and successful future leaders.
