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.

4 College Freshman

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

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.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There are several traditional dorms on campus for both the boys and the girls. The traditional dorms have a room for two people to share, two small closets, and a community bathroom. Most of the students who reside in the community dorms say that they love it because they know everyone on their floor. The only complaint students have about traditional dorms is the community showers. Students say that the showers are not always clean. In order to prevent taking a shower in a dirty bathroom, some students wake up as early as 5 a.m., right after the janitor cleans the showers. Students of all classifications can reside in any of the dorms. However, most juniors and seniors tend to move to the off-campus apartments, Normal Hills. These apartments have a kitchen (unlike the dormitories), a washer and dryer, two bedrooms, and a living room.

There are only two new dorms: one for the boys and one for the girls. The newer dorms have a single room, two dressers, two closets, a single bathroom, and two beds. Students tend to gravitate toward the newer dorms because they don't have community showers. Also, the cafeterias are located downstairs in the newer dorms, so students don't have to travel far to get food. Unfortunately, the water in the newer dorms tends to run cold, which is very frustrating for many students.
