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.

What I love about my university is the unity that exists amongst the students. We have a term here at Florida A&M University that joins us together. From the time I first got here I knew that there was a togetherness. The upperclassmen would help the freshmen and the juniors would help the sophomores. If you needed to know whether or not there was class on that specific day all you had to do was ask someone. The professors care and will most of the time reach out to you if they see that you are struggling. It is a really great university!
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!
