Florida A&M University Reviews
I LOVE the comradery demonstrated at Florida A&M University. There is so much pride and history associated with being a Rattler. Administrators and students alike want to see you win and are always there to lend a hand. It is as if everyone gets that if I WIN, everyone WINS! My first year being away from home took some adjusting, but that has turned into me having a 2nd home at Florida A&M University. Academically, there is so much support for me and it's taught me a whole different level of achievement.
So far my experience at FAMU has been amazing. Lately, I've been more involved in more clubs and other activities. . The environment is very studious and positive. Florida A&M University has presented me with many opportunities for work study, research, and internships. FAMU very much cares for the students well-being , professional development, academics, and job readiness. FAMU makes me feel like I'm part of a great big family!
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.
