Florida Memorial University is a great l school with excellent faculty and staff member from the professors to the grounds men. The campus is small in size but a great atmosphere to grow up in. The classes are small and that one on one time with professors for extra guidance is excellent to have.
The University has grown since my Freshman year, rather than practicing traditions they are creating them. The campus is very diverse so you can meet different people and there is something for everyone to come together and do at all times from sports, Greek life to musicals.
Overall my experience at FMU has been awesome for me and going into my Junior year still and honor student and starting basketball player has been and will continue to be great. I rate FMU an AMAZING 5!

Before I decided to come to Florida Memorial University, I was planning on going to Monroe College in New York. There are three reasons why I really wanted to go to Monroe. One, Monroe is a school well known for it's computer engineering studies. Two I'm from the Bahamas so living in New York would allow me to meet new people in a environment that is one of the most diveresed and widely visited places in the world. Three, I've never seen or felt snow before, so that was also a reason for me.
However, I later found out about Florida Memorial's excellent academic reputation and that when you graduate, because you came from an HBCU the drive you have to be more successful is uncomparable. Because Florida Memorial does not have a big campus or classes, its easier to have one on one conversations with your professors that can relate to you and actually know your name and this helps grow your self-esteem and communication skills. On this campus, there is never really a dull moment.
My experience as a college senior at Florida Memorial University is bittersweet. The staff really treat you like you're at home, easy to adjust! By it's a diversity school, you get to meet other people and become accustomed to their beliefs. If I could change anything it would be to make the dorms co-ed.
