I am currently attending Alabama A&M University, and I am experiencing great obstacles. I will continue to work hard to achieve success. Professors are very helpful and wants every student to be successful. The cafeteria has a lot of options such as pizza, burger/hotdogs, desserts, and daily meals for the students. We also have Subway and Chic Fil-A. I would recommend this college to anyone because it is great!

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...
