What I like about Alabama A &M is that it's like a second home. Students come from all over, some farther than others and meet new people on campus and within there department that become there second family. That's how it was for me because I didn't know anyone there. I was out of my element 2 hours away from home. Band is my second family. We practice, perform, and have fun together. It's awesome!

After transferring from two universities, I have found my dream college Alabama A&M. However, I can personally say this school has open doors for a lot of opportunities. I applied for numerous internships from previous school, with that being said once I transfer to Alabama A&M. Furthermore, I applied for three internships and received three interview within a month with three top 500 fortune companies. Also, I was offered an internship. I got involved with some of the school clubs and instantly connected with my fellow classmates. This school has helped me in all aspects, I can say that career service department are the best advocates. I would like to see more infrastructure being built as far as student living, gymnasium, and athletics. However, more money needs to be funded into HBCU's schools...
So far my experience at Alabama A&M University hasn't been all that great. Some things that I would like to see change would be the time dinner is served and when it ends. It starts at 4pm and ends at 6pm. I like to see that change to 4pm and ends at 8pm. Some students still have class at 6pm. They would not be able to be at dinner during that time. Also another thing I would like to see change would be food location on the weekends. On campus there are two cafeterias. One at the boys dorm and one at the girls dorm. Each are open during breakfast and lunch, but only the girls dorm is open for dinner. That should not be the case. That means that the boys have to go all the way across campus to get dinner on the weekends. That is a very far walk. If they serve breakfast and lunch they should also serve dinner as well. Last thing I have a problem with is the internet. IT IS VERY SLOW! I would like to see that change. Those are my problems/experiences with Alabama A&M University.
