I enjoyed my time at Alabama A&M University, the only thing I disliked about it was the financial aid process every year. Those lines were long and sometimes you would stand in one line only to be told you did not need to be in that one. I love my HBCU'S thats why I'm returning to finish what I started.

I love my school, the teachers (especially once you're your major) are so demanding, the want the absolute best answers from you and make you think critically on a daily basis. I love teachers that challenge my mind, i have learned so much from Alabama A&M.
