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.

Alabama A&M University was overall an okay school. I went there my freshman year, and I can honestly say that I didn't really get the college feel that I was expecting. The cafeteria food was not good, and that is really the only food place on campus. Almost all of the dorms were run-down, which made me not want to stay on campus. Most of the teachers were okay, but a lot of them that I had didn't really teach; they mostly expected us to know everything that they knew. The classrooms in a lot of their buildings are old and lack air conditioning, which made going to class dreadful from the Alabama heat. I believe that they need to work on making the campus more presentable and tolerable, and I think that that can be done by renovating a lot of their buildings, and also by incorporating more places to eat on campus.
College is whatever you wish to make it, however this school can be a hit or miss and oftentimes something of unnecessary stress. If you're wanting to focus solely on academics and fell supported by the various colleges the consistency is lackadaisical. The major that I was in was one of the hardest to complete, yet the staff was not the most supportive, lacked passion, unenthusiastic, unprofessional, and late. The technology was outdate, the building we were in was renovated on one side, but completely outdate on the other. It wasn't until graduating that there was an update to our curriculum, dropping unnecessary courses, but we were still working with outdate tools. Unless your family's history with this school runs deep, I would suggest going to University of Ala. Huntsville where you're given more programs and opportunities.
