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.
Review Southern University & A&M College
My overall experience with Southern University was great. I am looking forward to the upcoming year. My experience was great:however the struggle of coming up with the out of state fee has been very stressful.
I will continue to stay focus and find positive ways to help my family help me. I will have a work study and looking to work as well.
I have family in Louisiana that i am now residing with hoping to prove my residential status in Louisiana.
I really love the school and trying everything to finish up there!
Campus life is very enjoyable. The housing process is very satisfying and easy. The dorms are comfortable and convenient and also clean. There is no curfew for residents on campus, but opposite sex visitors do have a curfew. Sometimes it can be hot and uncomfortable in the dorms because of the weather but overall it is comfortable. The assistants are readily available and easy to contact. The social environment is excellent and satisfying, which can sometimes become a distraction to the students! The campus apartments are spacious and offer a lifetime experience! I really enjoyed my time living on campus but it can be an expense when you calculate tuition, housing and a required meal plan. On campus living offers great memories and helps build life time friendships.
