The A&M experience is excellent! Students who have graduated from A&M often say that there is no place like "The Hill." Sure, students complain about the long financial aid lines, old buildings, and out-of-date resources, but when asked if they would do it all over again and still make A&M their first choice, many have said they would. A&M is truly a "home away from home." It's a great place for students to discover who they are and who they can become. Being a historically black college, A&M has so much history engraved in its roots. After attending A&M, students gain a greater appreciation for their heritage and for those who came before them. Also, out of all the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), A&M has one of the best food science programs. It is one of the only HBCU's that has an accredited program. Most of the students who graduate from A&M with a food science degree are employed and working for major companies like Coca-Cola.
A&M is a great school to attend. Lifelong friendships and connections are made on this campus. Students at A&M are more than classmates—they're family. They encourage and support each other throughout their academic journey.
Students are not allowed to have visitors of the opposite sex after midnight. This means a girl/boy cannot have their signifigant other over for the night. This would be okay but homosexual student can have theirs over because they are of the same sex. Also new changes in the rules are not made availible to everyone and if it is broken you are treated like a troublemaker even though all you do is follow the rules. And visitation in the dorms can be taken away when the dorm manager feels like it even if only one person does something wrong.
There is a lot to do off and on campus. I feel the safety on campus could be better, but I honestly I feel it is the students enrolled who make it unsafe.
what facilities? I haven't seen a school with so many closed down buildings in my life. the worst part about it is that they can't tear the buildings downs because the school is a national landmark. I came in as a freshman last year. they JUST BUILT a health and wellness center last year. my teacher told me the only reason we have a health and wellness center is cause Auburn paid for it. u can play video games in the game room, u can pay to go bowling, u can play basketball, volleyball, racquetball, workout in the weight room or work on ur cardio upstairs. they have a student center but when I walk past it they're barely any students in there. the library is ok after you tolerate the smell. the quad is where ppl hang out at mostly during the 1st semester(mainly freshman), probably so they can get to know each other to see who their friends will be for the year. idk, I couldn't take it at the quad cause so many ppl there drink and get high. not my scene. they have an academic enhancement center for athletes but its small and it's connected to the ROTC building. they just built a "park" (all they really did was build a walkway with benches around the pond, it doesn't look finished.) there's also talk of Auburn trying to buy this school. if they do, then this school will get a MAJOR upgrade
i'm from GA, and GA has bipolar weather. I didn't think that Alabama would too. it was hot as hell in December and cold as hell up to mid april. 2nd semester it rained a lot. it snowed twice. other than that the sun be out. hot as ever
it honestly depends on your major. my major is exercise science. my curriculum is super easy. for example, next year i'm taking swimming for beginners, swimming for intermediate, tennis, just to name a few. but if major has to deal with engineering, you will have to do A LOT of math, unless your a civil engineer. I only have one math class in my curriculum.
Omg they have exercise science I didn't know but do they have any physical therapy
