Prairie View is very unique. We have so many different opportunities and organizations to assist us in advancing our knowledge and education. I like Prairie because it is a very intimate, close net atmosphere. It also one of the best HBCU's in the U.S. We embrace the black culture while also showing appreciation for other cultures. Prairie View a great school to attend. And as everyone knows, Prairie View produces productive people!

My experience at Prairie View is overall really great! There's different types of people from different types of backgrounds, and it is nice to talk to people and everyone is nice. I like PV's dedication to their students, it makes people feel welcomed. I wish the food was better, but it could be worse.
I am currently a sophomore at PVAMU, and so far I enjoy my experience. It's a pretty decent school with some of the best teachers. I wouldn't change anything (maybe the location because it isn't in Houston, so there isn't much to sight see). Overall I would recommend PV because of the teachers!
