The school is very nice, and the students are great to be around and talk to I'd really recommend this HBCU to future students. The weather is nice as well then the view from the dorms is even better while the school is constantly building onto it making it even more exciting to be on the campus.

Michael - 05/10/2021

A&M is a great school with great opportunities to grow and learn. Much of the education happens outside the classroom with the activities, community service and campus wide projects that bring students together.

Jeremiah - 06/24/2020

It is a decent school of going for certain accredited degree programs. If not one of those you just gotta he socially active. The school hosts a variety of events for students to attend but rarely seems interested in what the students want to do. Meaning our homecoming is rarely the way we would like things to go.

Kayla - 05/13/2020

I personally like A&M. For me I learned that sometimes you have to get involved to actually enjoy yourself. I was in the University Choir. There are so may activities around campus. Professors you have to want to learn they are not forcing anything.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I could go back to my senior year of high school, I would definitely apply for more scholarships, regardless of the dollar amount. I would take the ACT exam every time it was given because most scholarships use those scores when selecting recipients. I had no idea that college was so expensive. I visited three schools during the fall of my senior year. I would visit several different colleges during the summer before my senior year. I would ask more questions about the costs associated with each individual college and the curriculum needed to become an Occupational Therapist. While participating in sports and volunteer services, I would make a stronger effort to obtain references from teachers, my principal and volunteer coordinators. Something I learned the hard way is that it is very important to follow-up on contacts you’ve made. I would not assume that because someone is an adult, they would follow through on references without a friendly reminder from me. I was a procrastinator in high school, always putting things off until the last minute. If I had a do over, I would complete projects as early as possible giving myself time to perfect certain things.
