4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Prairie View just need to start building more complexes like "The View".

3 College Junior

Facilities: The Library or the New Engineering probably the best looking building on campus.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe walking around campus at night.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial aid probably is the most hated people on campus. They take forever to assist you with the money that you need for the school year

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The campus is always under control.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: I wouldn't know most of the time I be in my room studying.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: As a Greek organization you suppose to be look up to as a role models for the university. People suppose to come to you asking for help in the time of need.

3 College Junior

Academics: I don't think the professor put a lot of work load on the students knowing that the students take 15 to 18 hours. I mean if they do then it's understandable because you have so much time to get these done.

4 College Junior

Academics: College of Business let's every student know about any interning or scholarship and I appreciate them for that.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The College of Business are always letting me know when there is a scholarship we can fill out or who doing interning in the summer.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors try to do there best on campus, but there are some professors that will go out of their way to help students understand the materials.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Prairie View A&M has one of the best dining halls out of all of the HBCUs. The one thing that they do lack is having a variety of fast food restaurants around the campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty average.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is a lot of focus on athletics at my school, the majority of the school's money is going towards building a new athletic complex. There is a good sense of school spirit, fan support, and team performance.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: On Wednesdays which we call "Hump Day" because the weekend is near is when the Greeks come out to a courtyard in the middle of campus to perform their line dances in front of everyone. It gives an air of excitement and curiosity for Greek life. How Greek students are viewed by non-Greeks varies, if a student really wants to be a part then they will speak positively, if they don't they are indifferent, and if they did but didn't make it their reviews usually become negative. Everyone always raves about a Greek parties (Greeks do their line dances at parties and any social event) and when a sorority or fraternity is walking into a place they are usually noticeable by their clothes or the air that they give.

Campus Housing: During my freshmen year I lived in a dorm area created specifically for freshmen. The dorms were small in size but decent enough. It was clean and the social atmosphere was pleasant. The cost and housing process isn't too bad as long as you take care of everything on time.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Both guys and girls are very stylish and care a lot about brand names. A lot of the girls wear clothing that is either too tight, too loose, or too revealing. Some guys and girls are tacky. Most of the guys sag their pants and most wear basketball/sporty shorts. Some guys and girls can be found to dress nicely/professional while others are very hippy looking. Most of the student's interest include hard partying, drinking, drugs, and promiscuity. Plenty of romantic relationships can be found but not all are substantial. I keep a close circle that is away from all the drugs, hard partiers, promiscuity, and drinkers. My focus is mainly on my major, minors, scholarships, and organizations that I am a part of. It's all about finding the right people because if you look you'll see that there are some who Do have their priorities in order.

Diversity: There isn't much racial diversity because it is an HBCU (Historically Black College University) but there's plenty when it comes to acceptance/sexual orientation, economic background, political beliefs, and religion.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My favorite experience was our annual Spring Fest carnival and what makes my school unique would have to be the people you encounter there. Everyone is different, with their own perspectives, values, and beliefs.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel the security is too concerned with students who roam around the campus past curfew than they are with students who do not follow the school rules. For example there are plenty of security cars late at night when only a handful of students are still up and about but not one car can be seen when students are lined up for a special event and a bunch of students think they can line jump or start pushing people and starting fights. The school does however have these tall blue poles with red buttons on them all around campus that is to be pushed if one feels unsafe, is being assaulted, or needs medical help right away. I do feel a good sense of personal safety.
