My favorite experience at FAMU is my Vet Tech class. It is very interesting and educational. I've learned many things that will stick with me for the rest of my life. For instance, learning the different scientific names of animals such as; Rabbit is also known as lagomorph, cows are bovine, pigs are porcine, mouse murine etc. I've learned the reproduction system of farm animals and much more intriguing information. The asset that makes my school is the different students interacting with one another joining clubs, sororities, and fraternities. My school is a humongous melting pot, its just different personalities and attitudes intertwining together. I would choose my school again because I've learned so way more than I expected. I came in thinking I knew everything there was to know about animals when it reality I didn't and still don't know the half. So I'm going to continue to learn and strike, strike, and strike again!

I love Florida A&M University! I was very skeptical about attending here, but I did my research and asked current students about their experiences and opinions. People have a lot to say about this university, but unless they attend/have attended, do not listen to them. There are SO many opportunities here, for those who seek them out and are willing to do the work to achieve them. Just like any other university, there are people who should be here and people who should not. Remember why your are in school and what you want to achieve. Don't wait until you fail a class or your GPA drops, before you buckle down. Hit the ground running from the minute you get here and you will be successful. So many people here want you to succeed, but you have to want it as well.
My experience at Florida A&M University has been great so far as a freshman. Ther are so many things that can be improved, but overall it's a great school.
The student life is amazing because the clubs and organizations offer so many events and opportunities to the students. Even though its a historically black university it still is very diverse. Diverse in a good way where you meet all kinds of people. The campus is very clean but some of the buildings are really old and need some touching up. There aren't as many food options on campus as I expected. There should definitely be some more. The school spirit here is absolutely amazing. The home games are always fun and active. So if you're looking for a school where the campus is a decent size, not too big, vibrant, and many clubs and activities this is the school for you.
