This school is an HBCU an incredible school with a lot of heart. With the limited amount of funding the school does the best it can to accommodate students needs. The Con's however is the funding along with timing, swiftness isn't exactly their moto, but this school does have much pride and will put you to work in order to make you successful.
HR staff is RUDE and very NONCHALANT in their dealings with applicants.... We are in a time where the support of HBCUs is growing by leaps and bounds! When I talked to my mom about moving to Huntsville, she immediately asked me if I had applied to Alabama A&M.... to be treated with such disregard by the staff was sooo Unwelcoming. She did NOT care that I was having issues applying at all and her TONE was dry like I was Bothering her..... SMH is all I can say.... I wish my people had better customer service.....
I love the culture and community that Alabama A&M University has to offer. The professors and Career Development Services are always looking out for opportunities for students that will better prepare them for their chosen career field. I would like to see a more diverse use of donor funds. I see a lot of donations end up going to the athletic department but Alabama A&M offers way more than just sports and the school should start investing in those other categories more.
Alabama A&M University is such an amazing university! The campus is beautiful! The class sizes are small, so you're able to connect with your professors, as well as the students. It's easy to schedule time with your advisor. You can also drop by if you have to. I was easily able to find a job in my career field after graduating. Overall, I enjoyed my experience there, and I wouldn't change a thing!
So far my experience has been amazing. It's not as great in certain aspects due to corona but other than that I'm a 100% satisfied. The professors I've had a nice and they're very experienced and knowledgable in their subject. The only thing is, some professors don't respond well. Most do though. I suggest become acquainted with your advisor as well for a good, non stressful experience.
I took all of my classes online. Most of the teachers worked with us students given the state of things.
The online part was fine just for the simple fact youd only be talking to a teacher that was responsible enough to start class for the day.
Wish i could give ZERO stars, this college really sucks if you are a parent reading this do not send your student here. It will take you about 2 weeks to get in touch with anyone from alabama a&m anyway. They are extremely lazy putting everything on this Qless thing and even when you do you will only be helped for that phonecall, meaning if you hung up youd have to schedule again. They do not answer emails, the student support is HORRIBLE. They will send you the same copy & pasted email untill you find someone else to help. They also have a campus app that only works almost 2 days of the year. Everything is always "down" and like myself most students rely & depend on this school, especially during this time. This school is not for students serious about an education.
my online experience was good i had some teachers that were willing to work with me and some that were not willing to work with me.
I took most of my classes online this semester and it was wonderful. I learned a lot in the comfort of my own dorm. It was easy and effective. It was a judge free zone, where you could do your work at a steady pace with out it being overbearing.
Alabama A&M is the perfect school for anyone looking to get a good education, while feeling welcomed at the same time. They offer many different programs and they work with you to make sure you pay as little as possible while going to school there.
Alabama A & M University provides a realistic environment for students to grow and develop. Some universities allow you to simply drift through the coursework, this way students are not taking anything away from the courses. The professors at Alabama A & M University push students to their fullest potential teaching valuable lessons that are able to be carried on through the long term. The campus also provides a sense of community, which is vital when hundreds of students are many miles away from their families, allowing the feeling of having a home away from home. Yes, this is a historically black college, but this campus encompasses a melting pot of cultures, all coming together to create one big family. Becoming a bulldog has assisted in equipping me with the tools necessary to become a successful adult, even offering internships for every major so students have a solid foundation to land on after graduating. Of course, every campus has room to grow, but I love my HBCU!
The shift to online learning did prove to be difficult, but the fault is not to be solely placed on administration. This was a tough time for both faculty and students. It was even harder for students who are kinesthetic, such as myself. Some courses are simply not built for online format, which is okay. The period of online learning is a time of adaptation for many.
Alabama A&M University Was the best decision I have ever made, AAMU was not my first choice when I was applying for colleges, but after being denied from my other choices I finally got accepted to A&M, I didn’t know what to expect but our slogan “Start here, Go Anywhere!” is how I would define my experience. A&M has truly been a great and humbling experience.
It was wonderful seeing so many students who looked like me coming from various backgrounds to work towards moving up in life. Campus was lively, and one could usually find several activities to partake in. There's also a plethora of organizations to join that can fit your interests. One thing that I would like to see improved is the quality of dorm life. While A&M has worked to build a new dorm, some of the older dorms are in need of major improvements.
Right now I am taking online courses due to COVID-19. The online learning has been a challenge, but we are all getting through this one day at a time. The one thing that I have learned during this online learning experience is time management. I did not realize how much I need to improve on my time management until now.
I have been attended A&M for only a year now and I love everything about the campus. I thought I was going to be homesick, because I am so far away from. However, being active on campus and being surrounded by a group of amazing peers has helped keep that to a minimum.
