Overall Experience: My overall experience at the school of love and charity has been a great one that I would not trade for any other school, including PWI's. The culture, people and learning experience is all excellent. The only two problems were financial aid issues and rude faculty, but rude people are everywhere. Otherwise, in December I will be a proud alum.

Overall Experience: I actually don't start school until the fall but I went to the freshman orientation and I loved it. At first I had my doubts because people have been telling me so many bad things about it, not about the school but about the kids. As soon as I got on campus all of my doubts about the school washed away. I really love the school because it's an HBCU and I've always been to schools were there were only a hand full of black kids. It feels so good being around strong young African American men and women. It makes you think wow my ancestors paved the way for me and I'm honoring them by going to an HBCU. Florida State is literally right around the corner so it's cool how we interact with them a lot especially for parties.

Overall Experience: I love the oppurtunity that are offerend at the school. There are so more teachers that care about your well being that those that don't. They are willing to work with you and help you fully understand. I am very happy with the choice I made.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My favorite experience how everyone is a family. Going to an HBCU is an experience that everyone should able to have. The party's and comcert. It also helps that Florida State University is less than a mile away. Since we are under shadowed by the larger university, this university must overcome many obstacles . Saying that, everyone has to help everyone to make our presence known. That's why we are a great university.

Overall Experience: What makes my school unique is the networking opportunities that are available.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Florida A&M University has been amazing. I enjoy the welcoming and family atmosphere, everyone is very close-knit. I also enjoy the fact that there is always something to do, such as extra-curricular activities and student involved activities such as seminars and debates. The difficulty of classes is what you make it, studying and being ahead of the game is always the best route to take. I like the fact that professors welcome students to come to their office if there is a question or comment about the course, so that way the course is student oriented too. I originally transferred from a previous college and I strongly stand by my decision of transferring. I love Florida A&M University!

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!

Campus Food: The food is amazing. There are a variety of choices to choose from along with dining. Every dinning option has a variety of foods as well. All in all every food and dining area is amazing!

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

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.
