Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Since AAMU is a historically black college, there is not a lot of diversity. There are a couple of international students and a few white students, but the majority of students is black. However, although many of the students are the same race, they are all unique. Most students that come to A&M are not from Alabama. Many students come from different states such as Alaska, California, Georgia, Missouri, Tennesse, New York, and Illinois. Since many students come from different states, they all have different values and views on life. When it comes to politics, some are more liberal and some are more conservative.

Although A&M is located in the South, it is not as conservative as a lot of people might think. There are openly gay students who are not looked down upon or treated any differently than straight students. All in all, students at A&M welcome all types of students. Many students at A&M are religious, the most common religion on campus being Christianity. Very few students and professors don't believe in God. There are a few students and professors that don't believe in Jesus Christ, but they believe that there is some type of higher power.
