Drug Safety: Nearly everyone on campus smokes, drinks, or has done one or the other. Hopkins is called the Trap house LOL.

Health & Safety: A&M tends to be a little too relaxed with safety. I had a friend who was assaulted at a party after getting drunk, and I can ensure you this campus does not properly speak up about date-rape and other crimes on campus. Also, campus police is always patrolling so nothing to serious will happen (like getting shot or openly mugged) its mainly just what goes on behind dorm rooms that is the problem. I don't recommend going out alone at night however; large groups or walking with a friend are O.K.-but just remember this IS college.

Overall Experience: Most of the instructors I had at A&M genuinely cared for their students and wanted to make sure they succeeded. Especially Mrs. DJ and Mrs. Allen (be warned though Allen HIS 101-102 is HARD). But like all colleges you do have those teachers who seem like they don't want to be there, and you may have an instructor who seems like they're not smart enough to teach. My advice is ask upperclassmen which instructor you should take before registering for certain classes.

Overall Experience: A degree is a degree wherever you choose to go. But if you are an engineering, social work, STEM, Teaching, Premed, or Agricultural science major, then A&M definitely fits you. Other majors like telecom are popular too, but A&M really isn't geared towards liberal arts or humanities oriented students.

Campus Housing: If your planning to stay on campus, the best dorms are West for girls and Foster for boys (but both are costly). Both dorms are suite-style and they come with bathrooms, common area, kitchenette, and have computer labs downstairs along with the cafe. The other dorms such as Terry and Morris are "traditional" meaning public bathrooms, no elevators, and are MUCH older. Also, some of the dorms on campus look abandoned and are no longer in use.

Greek Life: Part of A&M's social scene revolves around the Greeks (as with other black colleges) but no one will make you feel any less if you decide to not join an organization. Most of the popular orgs. on campus are; AKA and Delta for women; Alpha, Kappa, and Sigma for men.

Athletics: AAMU's athletic gym needs MAJOR remodeling. It looks very old and worn, and compared to other campuses, were behind the times. However, A&M just built a public gymnasium (Health and Wellness Center) that is very nice and up to date; it has an on campus clinic attached to it as well and is very nice (and free for students as it's included in your tuition).

Athletics: Boys basketball games a lot of the students show support . We wear our Alabama A and M University shirts we also have certain chants we say. We have a fan section in the gym on the floor where students that attend Alabama A and M university sit and we have chants cheer and support our boys basketball team. Same as Volleyball games. Women basketball its not too muvh support , not everyone attends all the time.

Overall Experience: Attending Alabama A and M University has been a great experience. I love the people who go here. I am from California so i did have to adjust the south but overall i can say i enjoy myself here. They have different activities for us here on the campus such as, sign language classes, Greek shows, talent shows, etc. I enjoy attending the basketball games. The only thing about my school i really don't like about it, it is very unorganized. A lot of information you have to find out on your own. if i had a chose to choose this school i wouldn't because i feel i spending so much money into a school i'm not getting enough knowledge for

Health & Safety: The safety and security is very important on this campus. We don't have campus crime. Personal safety have happened a lot lately because students tend to take things that don't belong to them. The police stay on call 24/7 for every little thing that a student do. I feel somewhat safe on this campus.

Overall Experience: My experiences with courses and professors are a bit challenging. I struggle sometimes because its hard for me to understand because of the way the professors teach and talk. Every class is taught a different way.

Overall Experience: When students graduate from this school, they are guaranteed to have a job because of the internships that they have done while still in college pursing their degree. The career services have job fairs for the students and different companies come to the job fair and recruit students.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is very challenging. It cost a lot to live on campus because you have to choose between a traditional and non-traditional dorm. The rooms are small. You share a community bathroom with the other girls that bis living on the same floor as you.

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Alabama Agriculture & Mechanical University is quite challenging. Most of the professor's are foreign and it's hard to understand them. The tutors/SI Leaders are very helpful. The appearance of Alabama A&M is what makes it unique. I would choose this school again because of their computer science classes.

Campus Housing: The dormitories are in poor shape and need some remodeling; they are not worth the money that is being paid for them.

Greek Life: Greek housings are not available at my school but there are Greeks. Greek life is a big thing but it is not the most important aspect of campus life.

Athletics: The athletic department gets very adequate support from the school body. The teams have there ups and downs performance wise. The varsity basketball gym could be better because it is very small.

Overall Experience: The college experience has been a joyful, learning experience so far. It has given me the opportunity to meet a lot of people, to live independently in a dorm and get involved in things I would never have otherwise. College life is wonderful and I would choose my school all over again if I could.

Greek Life: Greek life is important to a lot of the students. It gives some a since of home away from home. I am returning to school after a career in the military so joing is not for me at this point I may consider it for the graduate chapter. I however still see what a majority do for the community and the outreach programs they have.

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.
