3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: If there is one tip I can give, is to do it early, because it takes the longest time for my school to process financial aid. Some students do not get their money till way later in the semester.

Health & Safety: When things such as a robbery or an armored man/woman is near campus, the police sends out a mass text to all the student on campus and also to students who attend near by colleges/universities.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not a Greek student so I am not sure ow Greek life is or how it is running. But the way I see the Greek life, it is a big organization in Florida A&M University.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus, but I live with a family-friend so it is different from renting a room and finding a roommate. But I pay $400 a month for rent. My mom friend cooks lunch and dinner for me. She even goes above and beyond and cleans my dirty clothes so all in all it is a perfect place for me to stay. The only problem I have is the distance from the place I love and school. It takes 30 minutes for me to get to school, and gas is not cheap!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I have not seen that many strictness on campus, it is probably because I do not stay on campus that long. But if I can say one thing they are strict about is where you park. I have seen a lot of students get tickets or one time a boot on their car.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Its a wonderful facility, especially the library. The library is always filled with students studying, working on projects, or helping each other do homework. It is an amazing place to be to do homework and educational things. But it can get crowded because of the amount of people, but there are other libraries located on campus. I personally have not been to the other libraries yet.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: At Florida A&M University the guys and girls dress amazingly professional. They all dress to impress, their style if dressing represents who they are and most importantly represents Florida A&M University.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: its lots of fun on and around campus

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The academic have been wonderful. Teachers are extremely competent.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: There's a wide variety of programs.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I would say school spirit is average or just below. With FSU across the street, not too many people are involved with going to team sports.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: The food is good, but the variety is not that great.

2 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: You have to stay on top of contacting them about receiving your hard earned scholarships.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: For the most part people are dressed very well, its not too diverse, and there's average school spirit.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There are numerous diversities within the African American community with regards to culture, background and origin. The school could be more diverse as far as other races, for example Indian, Hispanic, and Asian.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The amenities for student athletes are great.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The process is more user friendly for Florida residents. I feel out of state students get either left overs or nothing at all. This made it difficult for me to really stay in school and focus on studies.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Most students wear the typical polo shirts and khakis. Some girls attend class looking like they are headed to a pageant. I am in school to learn so I like to be comfortable.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life is great for gatherings and unity. However the chapter I wanted to join was suspended. They are very difficult to get into if you don't have family ties.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of varieties. I am a picky eater so I usually stick to my go to spots. I frequent these restaurants quite a bit. I only try new restaurants based on recommendations from friends who are like me and have the same taste in food.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: It could definitely be better. I moved off campus because of the cost and quality of the dorms. FAMU does not post pictures of their dorms for incoming students. When I arrived I realized the dorms were mostly run down and old. Additionally, the newer dorms were costly and VERY small. This is not good. They can do better. If students are forced to live on campus then the school should make it at least moderately appealing!

3 College Junior

Nightlife: The best parties are the pajama juice jam and nite kap.

3 College Junior

Majors: The program so far is good. I haven't had a lot of engineering courses due to prerequisites. I start the bulk of my engineering courses in this upcoming Fall.

3 College Junior

Academics: I am just getting into the pre-engineering courses so I haven't had a lot of time to really decide the pros and cons.

3 College Junior

Academics: There aren't a lot of course loads that help students who fall behind due to having to take a course that was failed or unavailable. This isn't good and makes it difficult to create a good course load the following semester. The school should also have a better selection of summer courses.

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.
