Like any other college, Fayetteville State is what you make it. It is a family-friendly oriented university. There are many amazing organizations you can join that helps you socially, academically, or however you decide to take that advantage as. At the time, it was the only school that offered a Forensic Science program, plus it is affordable! It is a small campus so it wasn't hard for me to learn my way around. It actually only took about 3-5 days to know majority of where everything is at. Fayetteville State has some caring staff and peers that help you succeed. There are many resources to take advantage of as well. Overall, Fayetteville State is an excellent university. I am able to maintain good grades, along with having fun and a social life. If I could go back and make a college decision again, I would still choose Fayetteville State. I felt like I was at home the very first visit here.

This is the only college I have been to, so I cannot compare to say it is good or bad. They try to keep the students active, they always have something on campus going on.

What I would like to see change is the removal of all the mold in most of the buildings. Most of the buildings are very old, that is understandable, but they need to keep up to date with it! What is the point of paying almost a thousand dollars a semester for a good dorm if said good dorm has mold in it? Surely, many students have complained, and I would know since they would sometimes talk to me about it.
Fayetteville State is an exceptional historically black college in Fayetteville, NC that puts everything aside to make sure that your academics is above the level of exceptional. With the help of multiple tutors and even your professors, students academic careers shoot through the roof, with the right push and confidence. Above all, the school's spirit for Bronco pride excels across the small city in roaring thunder to make sure everyone knows who the Fayetteville State Broncos are!
