Today I had the most wonderful opportunity to explore and be part of a college tour of Florida A&M University. I am currently trying very hard to get into a college that I have full interest in. Today was very beneficial and awesome because this tour made it clear that I NEED to be in this school. Flordia A&M University is one of the colleges I have complete total interest in. I really did enjoy being on campus today, I just honestly loved it! My residence is in Georgia, so this scholarship will really help me out with the cost of attendance to this school. It will be a blessing for to have help with the pay.

I love my HBCU! With FAMU comes great opportunities and long lasting friendships. The teachers show a lot of love and support, they don’t look at you as a number, they look at you as family helping family! One thing I would change about Famu is the rule of “Freshman’s not allowed to have cars” I believe that is unfair due to the fact that student students come from all over and a car is their only source of transportation to and from where they live. Allowing them to have a car for the first year would only give them the opportunity to get to and from home and also to and from a variety of attractions and destinations here in Tallahassee.
As a junior at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, I can say that my experience at this University was a life - changing experience due to the fact that I was introduced because I went to predominantly European American schools yet, I was welcomed in a way that I was surrounded by students that looked like me. My experience at this fine HBCU (Historically Black College/University) is one that I can say that I'm happy to be an individual that is African American. I like that Florida A&M University stays true and sustains its traditions of African culture and influences, but also opens its arms to students that are not African American. I like how Florida A&M University is being acknowledged and appreciated by outside ethnic groups of students. I would like to see facility and parking services change at this University so that students would have an even more comfortable journey into being a part of such a great academic experience.
