The security measures taken on campus by campus police, student housing and the university itself is not to be underestimated! Our safety is very secure on campus and i should know! I usually leave the Architecture building at 3 A.M sometimes working on a big project, and other than the cats there isn't anything moving on campus, and i ever feel unsafe as a female walking back late i can always rely on campus police to give me a lift home.

I love Prarire View A&M University! Every since day one, the students and the staff has kept me uplifted and excited to learn somthing new everyday. I've learned so much about my culture especially with this university being a HBCU. I'm so happy I chose Prairie View!

I absolutely love my University there is always different things to get involved in and if you need help with a subject there are tutors willing to help. The campus life is pretty good, the dorms are a nice size and the best part is you and your roommate share the bathroom in your room! Professors are mostly nice and are willing to help you during their office hours that are scheduled and want to see you succeed.
