Off-Campus Dining: Directly from the school all there is is this local wing place called Blessings'. He used to stay open till 11 but now he's only open till 9. That's the only place within walking distance. All the other restaurants are a drive away.

Scholarships: I don't know about academic scholarships, but it takes an very long time for your sports scholarship to process. They go by the most popular sport and then work their way down to the rest of the other sports.

Campus Food: Majority of the time they serve the same foods day in and day out. The worst time to eat is at 12, I call that rush hour. Everyone coming from their 11:00 decides to eat after class. it gets so congested in there, from the ridiculously long lines to the people constantly cutting in front of people you'd be lucky to get a plate within 15min. If people have class at 1 they might not even eat lunch because it takes the full hour just to get 2 plates. That's just at the Knight cafeteria.The food at Foster is better but the cafeteria is so small, if you don't make it in there by 11:30 you might have to eat standing up. Dinner at Foster is only open from 4-6 and dinner at Knight is only open from 4:30-7. So if you don't eat enough in the cafeteria or have a ride to a restaurant all you can do is wait till breakfast the next day. Luckily at the end of the year you can get a refund from all the times you never went to the cafeteria.

Campus Housing: The dorms here are old and the school isn't renovating them anytime soon. Foster Complex and Knight Complex (West) used to be co-ed dorms a while back but took that away because either "too many girls were getting pregnant" or they had a vote on keeping it co-ed or not and majority of the students voted for them to not be co-ed. Foster and Knight are the "fancy" dorms for this campus. Foster Complex (the male dorm) is older, the cafeteria and rooms are smaller than Knight (the female dorm. The bathrooms are so small it's amazing how anyone can use them. Rooms in Knight Complex are bigger, the showers are bigger, walk-in bathrooms and has the main cafeteria. It also has a computer lab and barbershop/salon. Even though Knight is bigger Foster and Knight are the same price.

There's only 2 male dorms for upperclassmen (Foster and Hopkins) and 2 female dorms for upperclassmen (Knight and Palmer Hall).

Health & Safety: Campus safety is bad at the beginning of the semester after a couple of months everybody acts right.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in terry hall and Its hard living with 36 other girls on your hall sharing 8 stalls and 8 showers. The school does a horrible job changing the shower curtains, mopping the floor and keep the soap dispensers full. Overnight there are dorm activities a lot of us get together and do but sometimes thats boring. The security is horrible. Literally anyone could walk in the dorm because the back dorm is never locked. At night the "watchmen RA" is usually sleep at the front desk and there is not security around so anybody could walk in. The best dorm is Knight for the girls all the others aren't safe.

1 College Freshman

Local Area: Huntsville is a small town and if you don't have a car then you pretty much stuck on campus. The only excitement on campus are the sports but sometimes those can be boring. Walmart is a pretty far distance and there aren't many there is one wing place thats walking distance. If you attend this school with out a car your gonna be pretty much a dorm body.

Overall Experience: The School is very disorganized and the teachers don't follow the same guidelines. Most teachers use email and other teachers are super hard to get in contact in. Being a Student athlete you have to be on top of your assignments because its very common for teacher to lose your work.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: My financial aid experience is the worse. I'm still going through it when you call no one is there to answer the phone , like ever. When you speak with some one they tell you that you have a balance and you have to pay it but the money is not money you just pull out of your pocket. Some of the People who work in financial aid are mean.

Guys & Girls: The typical students at A&M are normally focused on how their GPA and classes are going. They loved to be involved with all extracurricular activities, such as sports, SGA, and many more. The students dress in business wear or casual clothing depending on the department of studies and A&M has a friendly environment so just about everybody knows each other so their are rarely any problems between student.

Majors: The challenged that I have encountered from becoming a computer science major are somewhat complicated with the C++ Programming but they can be easily understood with the right amount of focus towards the class. Getting into and remaining in the computer science department normally requires a student to remain above a 2.7 GPA. This is fairly easy depending on the instructors, the focus you have towards your major, the notes you take, and how well They are applied in class and during tests.

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing selections vary. There are many available choices at reasonable prices. Some choices are gated and some are very safe about and strict with the rules about and for their residents

Athletics: The sports teams at A&M are great teams but can sometimes be inconsistent throughout the years. Some teams gradually get better with time and some get worse over time. So the A&M athletic department Is average overall

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.
