Administration: Students are not allowed to have visitors of the opposite sex after midnight. This means a girl/boy cannot have their signifigant other over for the night. This would be okay but homosexual student can have theirs over because they are of the same sex. Also new changes in the rules are not made availible to everyone and if it is broken you are treated like a troublemaker even though all you do is follow the rules. And visitation in the dorms can be taken away when the dorm manager feels like it even if only one person does something wrong.

Local Area: There is a lot to do off and on campus. I feel the safety on campus could be better, but I honestly I feel it is the students enrolled who make it unsafe.

Campus Quality: what facilities? I haven't seen a school with so many closed down buildings in my life. the worst part about it is that they can't tear the buildings downs because the school is a national landmark. I came in as a freshman last year. they JUST BUILT a health and wellness center last year. my teacher told me the only reason we have a health and wellness center is cause Auburn paid for it. u can play video games in the game room, u can pay to go bowling, u can play basketball, volleyball, racquetball, workout in the weight room or work on ur cardio upstairs. they have a student center but when I walk past it they're barely any students in there. the library is ok after you tolerate the smell. the quad is where ppl hang out at mostly during the 1st semester(mainly freshman), probably so they can get to know each other to see who their friends will be for the year. idk, I couldn't take it at the quad cause so many ppl there drink and get high. not my scene. they have an academic enhancement center for athletes but its small and it's connected to the ROTC building. they just built a "park" (all they really did was build a walkway with benches around the pond, it doesn't look finished.) there's also talk of Auburn trying to buy this school. if they do, then this school will get a MAJOR upgrade

Weather: i'm from GA, and GA has bipolar weather. I didn't think that Alabama would too. it was hot as hell in December and cold as hell up to mid april. 2nd semester it rained a lot. it snowed twice. other than that the sun be out. hot as ever

Academics: it honestly depends on your major. my major is exercise science. my curriculum is super easy. for example, next year i'm taking swimming for beginners, swimming for intermediate, tennis, just to name a few. but if major has to deal with engineering, you will have to do A LOT of math, unless your a civil engineer. I only have one math class in my curriculum.

Off-Campus Housing: Huntsville is a far out city in my opinion. The few times I have been off campus, there really isn't many apartments around campus. Normal Hills is an on campus apartment area for upperclassman. The only down side of the apartments is that they are EXPENSIVE! Try asking the housing complex for any addition apartments off campus.

Scholarships: I received financial aid, when I submitted my documents after my scholarship was posted to my account. But since I'm on a scholarship issued by the university, I can't really expect to receive any refund.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek Life at Alabama A&M University is usually exposed during the spring and on different weekends at the clubs. The frat and sorority houses are no longer available to the Greeks here. Why?, I couldn't tell you because I don't no why, but that is just the way it is.

Majors: There wasn't application process to declare my major. Jumped right into the courses. Easy!

Majors: As a food science major, I enjoy being apart of my department. We have various department activities that engage students (freshmen or undeclared) with undergrads, graduate students, and the faculty and staff within our department. The classroom experience is good, but the trips are even better to meet with other food companies.

Drug Safety: During my freshman year in the dorm halls, I can say that drug scene was somewhat visible throughout the day. Everyday, there was a floor, if not more than one, that was fogged with smoke. Drinking seems like a natural habit on the weekend, if not everyday.

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are several bars/clubs that are a good distance from campus. I don't attend any of those festivities.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I believe that our athletics could be much better as far as school spirit, team performance and fan support. AAMU's varsity sports are pretty decent at times. The lack of school spirit is probably one of the factors affecting the teams perfomance.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: For the past couple of weeks, it has been raining every day. When it does rain, I make sure to wear stable footwear so that I won't fall when I'm walking up the hill. The temperature is sometimes warmer in the morning than in the noon. To say the least, I usually prepare myself for the various weather conditions.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are house parties that are free , and sometimes parties but you have to get there by a certain time to get in free. Only thing I don't like about the clubs around here is that they play the same songs over and over again. That gets irritating after a while .

3 College Freshman

Administration: This school is pretty strict when it comes to alot of things because it is an HBCU.

4 College Freshman

Parking: I do not have a problem with parking because I do not have a car. I do not here people complain about their parking space.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a lot if finacial aid, but it wasn't easy as I thought it would be. I still have a balance until this day and I do not know what to do.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The drug scene at Alabama A&M University is not really big, although it depends on who you hang out with. If people are doing drugs, they're usually just smoking. Drinking is a much more popular activity.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: varsity sports at A&M could be amongs the top but it is so much selfishness that floats around the athletic atmosphere.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The young men at A&M go through a process there are some that try to be thugs in college which is impossible and stupid looking. But they may come in that way, but they will not leave that way, its amazing how many boys i see change, you have the city boys, theGQ guys, the gentlemen, the ruff around the edges, its just a buffet of mixed men at A&M. The girls for the most are classy young ladies, although there are a few that still have that street mentality of "I can wear whatever and do whatever as long as im going to class who cares." which most teachers do not allow and will have them to leave class if there clothing is inapropriate. which I love. I love my University

Scholarships: starting out there was no order, people were putting in wrong information, things were done on time and out of order, it was a mess and it was a headache and crazt, but now the process has obtained order, more efficient work personel they are better organized. They still need more work but its better than where they were.

Campus Housing: I love the campus life, its a convenience to have classes close by, seeing familiar faces, the Cafe most days has a good selection of foods. the teachers are for the most part understanding, although the cost of books are rediculous and waaaayy to expensive if you dont have other means to pay for them. the social atmosphere is kind of like high school, you have the jocks, the prepy kids(fashionable), band geeks, science geeks, etc things along those lines, and then everybody else who's just there.

3 College Junior

Diversity: The diversity at A&M is slowly starting to change, because its a HBCU pretty much there's perdominatly African Americans, but we have a lot more international races coming to out school, more cacasions, hispanics, indians, etc. so much more its becoming more well rounded. everything is pretty much mixed now, the religion is mixed, but we do have more Christian organizaitons above the rest, which is amazing. sexual orientation at A&M is mixed also, which allows people to express who they are.

4 College Junior

Weather: When it does snow or we have flash flood warnings, the campus is very efficient in shutting down the campus and getting people back to there dorms safely and in an orderly process. for example the April tornadoes, we were down stairs and prepd for what could happen. and after it snows all the dorms come out and we have snow ball fights, i loved it.

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.
