I love Alabama A&M University! I transferred here in 2016 and have been very pleased with my experience overall. My first year at this school, I noticed the many positive differences A&M had compared to my previous university. One thing that I noticed right away about this university is how caring the staff was. Professors and faculty at Alabama A&M are dedicated to the students and want nothing but success for us. They will go above and beyond to help their students achieve he best grades and opportunities possible. The campus life is very engaging as well. There is always an event to go to at Alabama A&M, and students are sure to show their school spirit at all times. Also, the campus itself is gorgeous. In fact, it wins an annual beautification award for its well groomed landscape. Students here are very friendly, no matter who you are you WILL find your people her. Attending Alabama A&M University was the best decision I have ever made. I love my HBCU!

I really have enjoyed the participation of the online professors! They were very helpful and prompt when needed. The Participation of other departments were prompt as well. I appreciate the immediate responses to this unknown epidemic and thanks for keeping us as safe as possible by being on top of what was going on! Also the knowledge of letting us know which direction to go and who to talk to dealing with refunds,housing,essentials and everything else. Go Bulldogs.
Overall Alabama A&M University is a good college choice. It’s very diverse and a good choice for anyone looking to attend college. We do have a few problems that could be fixed like dorms, and housing. They’re working on fixing up the campus right now now! We have various restaurants to chose from off campus, and a select few on campus. Which could use a little upgrade. Party life on the hill is great.. I’m sure you’ve heard. A&M comes with a lot of great experiences!
