Campus Food: I like all the food and dining options on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is cool. The people on campus are very friendly and it is very easily to make friends and socialize with other. Its safe on campus as well and there aren't any really problems that happen around campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is nice. The dorms are expensive but wonderful and I love it here.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I think that off-campus housing is way better than staying on campus. The costs are more reasonable, there is a wider variety of places to choose from and most are within close proximity of the school. I will be living in Aqua Cove in the Fall and I pay $425 a month for rent which is about $1700 per semester versus staying on campus which is $2600-$3000 per semester. It's also very convenient because there are shuttles that take you to and from school.

Administration: I say the strictness at FAMU is in between okay and great. It's not really enforced but at the same time you feel safe as a student.

Party Scene: I haven't attended many parties but the Greek parties are "turnt". The DJ plays a variety of different music that I believe everyone can relate to and it's a really good overall experience. I would say it has a positive influence on the student experience because it's that time where you can have fun with your friends and get away from school work.

Scholarships: My experience with financial aid is decent. If you do tour FAFSA on time, and turn in any necessary paperwork on time then you shouldn't have much problems with receiving assistance. But on the downside, the financial aid lines are always extremely long, and you'll be put on hold forever when trying to contact them.

Campus Food: On campus you have the options of eating in the Rattler's Nest, which has really good home-cooked meals at a good price. There's also the orange room which has Chick-Fil-A and Rattler's Grille. You have the choice of using your meals or flex for the Rattler's Grille and your flex at Chick-Fil-A. Then there's Starbucks which is in the library.

Campus Housing: Staying on campus is okay. I can say that it is convenient and in close proximity to all the major buildings on campus. The quality of the housing buildings are average and could use a little work. The costs of dorm living are a little pricy as well.

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.
