Local Area: I like the Governor Square Mall, it has all the places I shop at back home.

I do not like that I can not find a descent spa.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I know there are rules for visitation but some people violate them and get away with it. At this point, I feel like the underline principle here is safety. Also, underage drinking is absolutely prohibited and I agree with that because there are a lot of ways to have fun at an event.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I really enjoy my major and the courses that come along with it. Currently I am in my 2nd semester of my Freshman year, my schedule fits my lifestyle completely. Next year I plan to have a schedule that works with me having a job and going to school. But I will always remember, I am a student first.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing process is okay; I do not live in the best place but it is the cheapest on campus. I will say that the community I do live in is fairly nice, it is right across the cafe.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus crimes happens on occasion but they are not that serious.

I feel really safe on campus due to the fact that we have police officers on campus. We also have emergency station stationed on campus that allows a person to notify officials that they are in danger.

Scholarships: Applying scholarships is the most important thing.

Picking the cheapest place to live and the cheapest meal to save money.

Make sure you stay updated on the newest scholarships available to the student population

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: As I said in the previous section, there are alot of places to eat nearby my apartment. I live right behind Winn Dixie and I love to cook so that is an extreme life saver on Gas for me. There's a bank, Gas Station, Bus stops, dry cleaner, and all of the things you can think of that you may possibly need near my apartment so I have stayed there my entire college career. I ride the bus for free with my rattler ID Card thanks again to FAMU! Everything is within walking distance too!

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The crime rate on campus from my friends experiences, have been pretty moderate to almost high so that's something that definitely needs to be decreased so that emotional turmoil of the victims can be ceased.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I feel as though the strictness has improved over the course of a couple years. My program definitely cares about how I am doing on a personal and academic levels so it makes me feel amazing actually. There are Seminars that people have to go to to swear that they will not partake in any hazing just to be accepted into the group whether it be an organization, club, fraternity, sorority...etc. Ever since the Robert Champion incident FAMU took that very seriously by making sure that things of this nature do not happen again so I definitely applaud and appreciate my school for doing that. It definitely makes me feel secure.

Local Area: A lot of people don't realize that there is much to do in Tallahassee. I live near Tennessee St., which is the main street of nothing but a plethora of food places. Of course there are other different types of stores like dollar stores and outlets as well. Since I became a college students I would definitely have to say that my favorite store is honestly the Dollar Tree because I never realized the true value of a dollar and how many cool things you could get for a dollar. Even when I become a millionaire I promise that the dollar tree will still be my favorite store to shop at. Aside from the amazing places of eatery, there are nice places to go to just take pictures or relax as well. One of the things that I do to clear my mind and renew it of all positive thoughts, is meditate. So whenever the weather is compliant Lake Ella is definitely one of my favorite places to go do so because being by the water is just so peaceful to me. I am also a nerd, most of the time if I am not home, you could definitely find me at Barnes and Noble, Coleman Library, or our Local Library. I have been to the most beautiful place ever for a photo shoot also called Maclay Gardens! Just full all different types and species of flowers unfathomable! I can't wait to go back because the things that I saw were just priceless. So I said all of this to say, that although Tallahassee is a college town and is expected to be boring, it really isn't, you just have to be an open minded person and broaden your horizon, use your creative mind by finding things to do and constantly feed your brain as I do!

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I appreciate the professors being extremely motivational because it gives me that extra push in my subconscious mind that shows me there's someone other than myself that believes in me. A lot of people on this campus have such great spirits and are determined to make something great out of themselves. I love surrounding myself with people in the library that are studying because that is all the more motivation. The curriculum for each major is online so it is easily accessible to anyone that might be considering changing their major like I did, so I was very thankful for that. Of course workloads will vary according to the professor and the class level so it really varies. I prefer a challenging professor over a professor that is an easy one to pass because I actually value the money that I am spending on these classes and I am eager to learn, so I want my money's worth.

Campus Housing: I have never lived on campus, however I have spent the night on campus with one of my good friends from Freshman year. The convenience of going straight from her apartment to class was very nice. I have heard the horror stories of the dorms being dirty and the showers and I am just a neat freak so I'm fortunate that I chose to stay in an apartment throughout my entire college career. I chose to stay in an apartment simply because I am an out of state student and it would be way too expensive.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: They are all apartment style so It is more comfortable to do what you want and cook and etc...

3 College Freshman

Academics: You just have to manage your time and study like everyday !

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It is pretty dangerous since it is an open campus, meaning locals are always welcome!

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.
