The student body on campus is electrifying! It feels like a family away from home. The students are involved in all events around the campus. They also do a great job with making other students aware of opportunities on campus. The professors are good instructors, but they could be better. I transferred from a different college this semester, and I have enjoyed it every since. Overall, I am glad I made the switch because Southern University feels like my new home.

Hello, my personal overall experience here at Southern University A&M College has been average. I really blame myself i'm more of an homebody so I stay to myself and in my dorm. The schools academic work is great you learn a lot and my professors are excellent. SouthernU offers many opportunities to get involved in campus which is great! The cafeteria food is disgusting I dislike going to the cafe.
It was a great experience of my life. The music and atmosphere was amazing! The band and football team are awesome. A very different experience because it is hbcu. Financial aid is ruff getting in could have been better. Great party life but don't do too much. Food was great on campus and the campus is constantly growing. Plenty of diversity and student life is great. Some of the incoming freshman professors were horrible. Which will make academics hard, watch out. But once your in your program of choice it great. Campus is normally safe.
