WHAT I LIKED

My favorite thing about FAMU is that everybody wants to see you succeed. There are so many job opportunities and social mixers that you are bound to have a plan once you graduate from the Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I think students should just be aware that if you need administration for something, you need to be persistent. Go in person if you can because if you call you will probably be on hold for a long time.

WHAT I LIKED

The culture at FAMU is what I like most. As an African American student, I feel at home.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

You should be prepared to really work hard, nothing will come easy. Additionally, being a rattler will leave you with family everywhere.
