4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Well I am an out-of-state so it's expensive, but I stayedd on top of my game and I got the assistance I needed.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I have basically eaten everything I have seen down here so It's not all that new to me

3 College Freshman

Administration: I really haven't had any confrotation so I really don't know the level of strictness like that, ut ased on what I have heard and seen, above is my judgment.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are different options to chose from on campus which is what I like. You have endless options to chose from in the top café. The top café serve foods that your parents might cook such as pork chop, spaghetti, and many different vegetables. In other dinning halls such as Foot Hillyer your limited options but their food is more seasoned. You can use your meal plan and flex bucks in the Presidential Dinning area and Orange Room.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is very convenient especially for freshman who do not have transportation. The dorms are close to most classes on campus. However, the cost to stay on campus is very pricey especially in the new dorms. The housing process was a breeze especially if you already know were you want to stay. The social atmosphere is very friendly and diverse. FAMU allows you the opportunity to meet people from all around the world and bond and make new friendships. FAMU students are like one big family!

4 College Sophomore

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus cares a lot about the rules of were students should and should not be able to park. I learned that parking is a big deal on campus and if you aren't parked were you are suppose to then you will be fined.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid was an okay process I would recommend just giving everyone there required financial aid in one lumpsome.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I dont have any issues with them.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is amazing to live on campus everyone is friendly and the atmosphere is exciting. The dorms are okay living to be such old building I would recommend rebuilding or making it look more homelike. The dorm is convenient because it's literally right across from the cafeteria . The housing process wasn't so bad either. It was a one two process that only took about 30min of your time. I would say the cost to live their is about average

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: If you choose a good meal plan you can use meal swipes in certain places other than the cafe. So its all about using the meals to your advantage.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Its a good start for anyone who comes in as freshman and sophmores. Good chance for you to interact with students and its convinient for you to make it to classes.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus life has its pluses & negatives , close to class so you don't have to wake up extra early . The cafe is close so you can eat food & not starve . You see a lot of people staying on campus meet a lot of friends & what not . It can get boring & I really didn't like sharing showers or the rules they had .

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: trying to move off campus asap

2 College Freshman

Administration: some have terrible attitudes and just like giving fines

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Florida A&M University will prepare you to excel in your future career. The professors push and encourage their students to go beyond their limits. There are no handouts at the University—you have to work hard and earn your grades. FAMU also offers lots of student organizations, and it’s recommended that you get involved with at least one. Many students met some of their best friends through campus organizations.

The University is also unique because it is rich in tradition and culture. Students here bleed orange and green, and their love for the University stays with them after graduation. In fact, FAMU has a huge alumni following, and alumni are constantly coming back to campus for events. Another unique thing about FAMU is the University’s award-winning marching band, Marching 100. The band has performed in Super Bowls, appeared on national TV, including CBS News and ESPN College Day, performed with Kanye West and Jamie Foxx at the 2006 Grammys, and was even asked by President Obama to play at one of his events. Many FAMU students say there is no doubt in their minds that they would choose the University again if they had the choice. This University is truly a home away from home and continues to produce educated and successful future leaders.
