My experience thus far at Florida Memorial University was amazing. To be attending the only HBCU in South Florida is a privilege. The academics, student life, dorm life, partying it’s great. I would just like to see students themselves being more involved in the activities the staff has. They really care about the concerns about the students and always try their best to keep them satisfied and safe. It may seem as a “ghetto” school, but 90% of the students graduate from there and find a job and that’s all that matters. The change I would like to see from this school is fixing of the old dorms, so that more students can be able to attend and get a wonderful and unforgettable experience.
