Academics: The environmental toxicology program, workload, curriculum is about what you expect or a graduate degree program. The facilities need updating and instrumentation needs repairing. Internships are competitive so you have to work hard to get what you want.

Academics: The academics at my school provides variety of fields to suceed in. I am a mechinal engineering student at Southern University A&M college and I can say the experience so far is great. The campus is filled with many wonderful professors willing to teach the students the things we need to know. Registration process may get frustrating at times, but it is worth it. Also being the the Honors college I have the option to study abroad. Academics is very important at Southern and also include many clubs that a student can become apart of. Many people are willing to help through the journey at Southern. From tutoring sessions to group work and projects, it may be hard sometimes but great things can be accomplished.The sources are provided at Southern and it just takes hard work and dedication to use these sources to your greatest advantage.

Academics: Southern University A&M College has the best nursing program in the nation. It is pretty tough when it comes to the work but who would want a nurse to preform on them with elementary education skills? Acceptance into the program is tough also. But as long as you keep your head in the books you will do just fine.
