FAMU lives up to the expectations. There are plenty of facilities and faculty members to help students succeed. The environment is welcoming and it is inspiring to see people who look like me doing things others deemed "impossible". This school provides students with ample opportunities, resources, and representations of excellence. Nothing at this school comes with a charge, with is refreshing to the mind of broke college students. If I could recommend one school to a prospective student, I would recommend Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University.
I enjoy it there. I find it to be a good variety of things and there is never a dull day while I am there. There is a traditional HBCU culture with band, football, and cheerleaders. It's full of opportunity and promise. It's a good school and I would recommend it.
I love this school. I love the culture and the life it has. However, you have to take into account it is an HBCU and I really want to say that HBCUs having limited resources is a stereotype but at times it's not. It is a real thing. This school is understaffed and it's frustrating to say that I was one of the students who did not get housed on campus for fall 2022 and as a result went back home. The staff at times won't answer the phone and I can't fully get mad because there are 10 thousand students in one little office. I would be irritated too. However, there's a simple solution to this that they simply aren't considering and it's to hire more. They can afford it. Tuition for out-of-state students like myself is high and it's a public school meaning they're getting funded by the government as well. But at times I'm willing to overlook that for the positives of this school. The overall culture on campus is amazing and there are great professors. It feels like a community that'll stick with me even when I graduate. Not to mention the food was scrumptious like I was eating good every day. Maybe my rating is a little generous but I couldn't help but rate the number one public HBCU a 4/5.
FAMU is just like home. I am from a small town in North Carolina and I always said that so would move away and attend an HBCU. This school has everything I wanted; my major, diversity, and dance. The environment is so welcoming and the professors are A-one
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University is 31%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would tell my "high school" self, that there are going to be so many different kind of challenges that you will be facing in college, never give up when times get hard. Just look at it as something you're going to overcome. Stay strong, study, and do your best. Just know that you already completed your first challenge by going to college. And thats a huge step into starting you life. In the end you'll be proud of yourself for not giving up and overcoming those challenges.
Most of my classmates were African-American.
The worst thing at FAMU is all the parties, causing some students to lose focus.
I wish I had known it would be so difficult to get scholarships.
The family oriented atmosphere because becoming a rattler means joining the FAMUly and walking away with a life changing experience.
FAMU continues it's historic mission of education African Americans while preparing them to apply their knowledge in their service to society.
My school is best known for the band. The Marching 100 was organized in 1946 and has over 420 members. The 100 has performed during NFL Super Bowl halftime shows, presidential inaugurations, and numerous parades throughout the world.
A person who isn't comfortable being areound a lot of African Americans probably shouldn't attend Florida A and M. The majority of the students and most of the teachers are African American. This is probably the only problem that a person would have with the school.
It provides the "Black Experience" at all of it students as well as aid in the progression of African Amrican students.
The kind of person that should attend FAMU is a determined and ambitious student who's serious about their education.
My school is the largest historically black university in the United States by enrollment. Florida A&M University was also named one of Forbes Magazine's America's top colleges in the nation. Famu was also recognized on the Forbes list for best research colleges.
The most frustrating thing are the hills all around campus.
Professors will definetly know your name. Professors can be hard on you, but they do this to push you to perform your best. Depending on your major, students can be very competitive.
I don't know the popluar student activities because i'm always focus on my work
Worst schoo ever
At my school, Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University there are several types of clicks...or one can say sororities, fraternities, or any organization. Amongst our school, there is a group that everyone is in. There is one particular organization on our campus that is called Every Nation Campus Ministries. This organization is for college students to come and bond around christians and grow. Everyone belongs to something.
I say yes. FAMU has the biggest HBCU homecoming. It's an entire week. It also has three classics held in staudiums. Since FAMU is the biggest HBCU, and it is in a college town, students always have something to do. FAMU students will always been seen protesting because the students are very into politics. There many modeling troupes on campus, and when you step on FAMU campus, it's like walking a runway.
