Off-Campus Housing: I'm strictly going off of what I've witnessed from others' lives. I've only lived on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties happen REALLY often if you're in contact with the right people.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Fast food. Fast food everywhere! With no money to get them!

1 College Sophomore

Administration: The visitation issue is the worst thing I've ever witnessed. Visitation is promised at the beginning of the year, but it taken away at the most random times and almost at the discretion of the desk staff. The administration are very lenient about attending their office hours, and the kitchen staff are not very efficient.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I wish that financial aid would recognize how extreme my need is. Each payment I make to the school is a struggle and I really have trouble sleeping each night that I haven't paid my tuition.

Campus Food: The dining halls are sparse, compared to what used to exist. I think both cafeterias give you what you pay for excluding the breakfast food options. The breakfast food is really yummy, yet the hours of operation for brunch are complicated and difficult to catch. The dinner hours are also really early and leave the students with no option for eating afterward.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I thought the housing was extremely convenient, yet could improve in a couple of areas. Mainly the enforcement of cleanliness not in each room, but in the building.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Overall the campus life and schooling is mediocre. The only thing that is of decency is the education. That is the only reason I am here . There are great instructors/professors at the university. The academic advisors are terrible,they are extremely rude and of no help. I couldn't afford to attend . More credible university so i am making the best of Alabama A&M University.

Party Scene: There is always something to do throughout the week. Parties are thrown daily, so the nightlife is excellent.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The administration and security is great. University staff and security take pride in exercising the rules, and work very hard to make sure they're followed.

Scholarships: Like answered in the previous question, the process was a hassle, but I received the financial aid I needed. I was rewarded a scholarship, but it was very last minute. My mother and I had to ask if I had received anything before they awarded me. If we had never said anything, my parents probably would've been paying for school when they didn't have to. The communication needs improvement.

Campus Food: There are two different cafeterias and one restaurant on campus: Foster Cafe, West Cafe, and The Greasy Spoon. I prefer eating lunch and dinner at Foster, but West is good as well. The food is okay, I just wish they would switch it up with the meals. Each cafe does have its perks, and they also have days where the food is excellent.

Campus Housing: Living on campus truly gives you the college experience. The dorms could use a little renovating, but there's always room for improvement. My college is also historically black.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I ONLY LIVED ON CAMPUS

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: ITS THE SAME, MCDONALDS, WENDYS, TACO BELL ETC

3 College Freshman

Administration: MOST DONT RESPECT OUR PRIVACY SO THE STUDENTS DONT RESPECT THEM.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: WE EAT THE SAME THINGS EVERYDAY. ON THE WEEKENDS WE EAT SUPER EARLY AND ONLY TWICE A DAY.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: THE FOOD IS AWFUL, WE EAT THE SAME THINGS EVERYDAY. THE BURST INTO OUR DORMS AT DIFFERENT TIMES AT NIGHT. THE TREAT US LIKE MIDDLE SCHOOLERS, WE DONT HAVE VISITATION.

Administration: They are strict. Visitation should be 24 or 72 hours instead of ending at a certain time, because what they have to realize everybody is grown and regardless whether visitation hours are over people are going to still sneak who they want to their room.

Party Scene: We don't have a lot of activities like we should for our student body. So most of the students go off campus to party and have a good time. I feel if we plan and come up with more things to do on campus the party scene would be so much better. I go around and hear that's what keeps people at AAMU cause of the parties off campus. Also it would be such much more convenient for students who do not drive.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
