I love Fayetteville State University! The staff and students are very friendly and helpful. The campus is clean and is always improving. There is a lot of pride for the school from both the staff and students. The previous university I attended I did not feel included in the school I was just a body in class and more money for that school. However, at Fayetteville State I feel included and that I belong. People go out of their way to make you feel included in groups, clubs, etc.
Fayetteville State University is what you make of it. Me personally would like to see a change in the cafe, better food. Also having more events outside, to get people out and mingling. Last, spreading the events that do go on around to all people. This is another reason why people don't come to stuff because they either here about it late or don't check there email or have to hear it through a friend. Getting the information out to others would be a great! Other than that the school is okay academic wise.
