    Great for these types of students

    That want the small campus experience; this way you are able to get more hands on experience. It is also right for people who know they belong at Tuskegee. You should most definitely come to Tuskegee if they're known for your major. ( I DID!!!)

    Tips for prospective students

    FOCUS, FOCUS, FOCUS!!!!! Remember why your here and put everything else on the back burner. Join organizations that fit who you are and those that will also make your resume look better. Talk to advisors, upper-classmen, and make friends that want the same thing out of life as you do. Stay true to yourself and the person that you are. Study; you came to college to get an education. Get it!!! The information is available for you all you have to do is get it.

    Bang for the buck

    Tuskegee is a school like no other and that I can say proudly. We're ranked the Number 1 HBCU in Alabama. The lessons that I learn both inside and outside of the classroom are preparing me for the Real World. However I have found issues that make me question my decision on coming here. For starters the living situations are not the best, administrator's in the Bursar's office will give you a hassle, and I am envious of Auburn's Student Union and library. Many of the books in our main library are outdated and there are not enough things in our Union to hold every one's interest.

    Am enjoying being here

    I'm from a small town so Tuskegee feels comfortable to me. However there is nothing really to do in the city of Tuskegee if you do not party. You have to travel to Auburn, Montgomery, or the other surrounding areas. Overall it's okay. During homecoming there were lots of activities to become involved in. And occasionally there are other things occurring on the campus to hold interest. I just tend to get bored often.

    Am learning a lot

    I'm a freshman at Tuskegee and I just finished my 1st semester. As an Animal Poultry and Veterinary Science Major I have learned so much more than I expected. I was expecting to only become a Vet with my major but our APSC 100 class taught me to open my eyes to other careers in the field. The work is sometimes too much too handle but it can be done if you prioritize accordingly. Other than that you are going to learn a lot and personally my last semester was fairly easier than expected.

    gotta be organized! gotta be focused! but you gotta have fun from time to time. So if Tuskegee is right for you then send your stuff in. look forward to ball and parlaying with you! HEEEYYY TUSKEGEEEEE!!!!!!

    Tips for prospective students

    Get your GPA up in high school. start appling now!!! keep your options open. Tuskegee isnt for everybody, its for you. Also ladies, look out for the greeks when you get here, if you lookin right they will certainly notice lol. fellas dont try to get in no relationship right away, play the field, learn. you;ll learn quickly which girls are dateable and which are off limits. by second semester things will calm down enough for you to make a good decision. lol

    Bang for the buck

    now dont get me wrong tuskegee is a great school but theres gonna be times where you get fed up with how much you have to pay compared to the service you get. but its all part of the experience and will make you better off in the long run

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy Tuskegee, but you gotta be prepared for the black college experience which is the best there is. be prepared to have a roommate, be prepared for cold showers sometimes. be prepared to wait in long lines at the cafeteria, caf its the top hbcu in alabama, and number 6 in the country. great school. if you can make it here and survive with black folks. you can make it anywhere and deal with anybody.

    Am learning a lot

    You learn soo much at Tuskegee, im a history major here, so my schedule is pretty easy. lots of room for electives. If you are a guy then you should try and stay in young as a freshman, thats the best male freshman dorm. the other one, bethune looks like garbage. plus young has won the freshman step show 5 years a row. (Young Hall is SMooth!)

    Tips for prospective students

    1. Get off of facebook. 2. Get out of your dorm room. 3. Get involved! Stay involved! 4. Join a club/organization. 5. Meet people different from yourself. 6. Take Mr. Philips' Black Aesthetic course, 7. Take Archery 8. Take Dr. Bales for 107 9. Take any of Dr. Hannon's sociology courses. 10. Be early to the caf on Wednesday.

    Bang for the buck

    As high as the tuition is, with scholarships and grants from the university and outside sources Tuskegee actually became my least expensive choice. It is a private school so money is a major issue but if you made good grades in high school you shouldn't let the sticker shock deter you and see how much you can get from the school before you make your final decision. There's definitely money out there.

    Am enjoying being here

    Tuskegee is in a small little country town; there's just no getting around it. While there's some things I'd like to improve about the campus there's just no place I'd rather be. If you get out of your dorm room and off of facebook and take advantage of the different organizations on campus you're bound to find ways to keep yourself entertained and meet a diverse group of people in the process (hopefully somebody who has a car if you haven't got one lol). You'll come to find 'Skegee is like it's own little secret society (the school hazes you freshmen and sophomore year... you'll figure it out lol) and there's just something about it that'll make your heart swell up with pride after you return from a long summer. On another note, there's life in Montgomery and Auburn and while Auburn is a larger public university with more resources even the black students from Auburn come to Tuskegee to hang out when they feel homesick. I got in to both but Tuskegee chose me. :-)

    Am learning a lot

    I'm a Junior English major and I can definitely say I have learned a lot since I've been here. I've always excelled in school and although I've managed to maintain above a 3.0 GPA my entire time here while maintaining a pretty fruitful social life, I definitely have had to put in work. I can't say any of the workloads I've been challenged with thus far have been unreasonable but time management is key. I can't stress that enough (even if you're good at a subject you still have to study or put forth effort into writing papers or what have you so you MUST make time for working/studying). Since I've been here I've taken advantage of several different programs that have given me the opportunity to go to Orlando twice for a competition as well as to spend part of my summer at Emory University in Atlanta for a fellowship (I'll be at Duke this fall for a conference and who knows where else next summer) and that's just me. This summer I have friends from all different majors all around the country and world at internships and fellowships. There's a ridiculous amount of opportunities to expand your horizons in this tiny ol' town but you've got to go and get them.

    Pre-Vet, Nursing, Engineering, and Business Administration. This is a very well rounded school with students from Louisiana, California, New York, Alaska and even the West Indies. Everyone is welcome.

    Tips for prospective students

    School is always first. Know who you are when you are coming in as to not get lost throughout your journey here. There are plenty of influences, positive and negative but always keep your eye on the prize.

    Bang for the buck

    This institution is private so the tuition is the same for in-state and out-of-state students. In the long run once you have that cap and gown and your degree you will think everything was worth it.

    Am enjoying being here

    Tuskegee University is what you make of it. The diversity of things to do on campus is very large and the organizations and events are endless. There will be plenty of times where you get frustrated with this school but If you manage to link up with the right people and attend the right functions your experience here will be like no other.

    Am learning a lot

    I am a Chemical Engineering major and this subject is not one to play with. My classmates are constantly working hard day in and day out on design projects and lab work. The courses here are strenuous but in the end it is so rewarding. I will have the knowledge that matches any of the other students attending the top engineering schools in the country.

    Tips for prospective students

    Network and study and HAVE FUN! Tuskegee is in the middle of nowhere so there are plenty of times that you will be bored but you just have to make the most of it and have fun. Meet new people and dont sit your dorm all day.

    Bang for the buck

    Its expensive and the money is not being shown. But they did renovate two buildings and built a brand new student union.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love the enthusiam and spirit that Tuskegee has. I have seen no other school get excited for the little things and I love that!

    Tips for prospective students

    Come with an open mind and be ready to take in all that Tuskegee has to offer. Never go anywhere alone (especially off campus). Always remember why you are here and do not get too caught up in partying.

    Bang for the buck

    For the price that you pay to be here I would definitely say that the education is completely worth it if you actually take advantage of it. On the downside, some of the dorms arent the greatest an you will always be stuck in the paper chase of the administration. And there is hardly any city life around for miles and miles.

    Am enjoying being here

    I was hesitant about coming here and I think that is is the best decision that I have ever made. Coming from a major city I thought that the transition to the country lifestyle would be a hard one, but it was the smoothest change ever. The people are nice and the surroundings are beautiful. I have found the most amazing group of friends ever and I dont think that I would feel as at home if I would have attended any other college.

    Am learning a lot

    Many people don't give HBCU's the credit that they deserve. I have learned so much both in the classroom and out. The student body is very divers and the curriculum is challenging (depending on the amount of credit hours you take).

    This school is great for any and every student. Tuskegee will accept who ever walks on their campus with open arms. The students, faculty, and staff will ensure that they help you in any way that they can to get you ready for not just the business world, but also the real world.

    Tips for prospective students

    When you come here be ready to be challenged both mentally and physically. There will be times where you just want to quit and go home but remember this is going to help you in the long run. Everything that goes on here will toughen you up and get you ready for the real world and business world. This is a great school filled with many different people who are smart and ready to help if necessary.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition may seem high, but for everything that you are offered and given it is well worth every dollar. From the resources open to each student, the gyms, the cafe, tutoring all of these resources make it well worth the money.

    Am enjoying being here

    Everyday on this campus is a day for meeting new people and finding fun and productive things to do. There are many clubs, organizations, community service events and other ways to make out of class time enjoyable. Every few days there might be a different event going on to keep everyone having a good time.

    Am learning a lot

    Here at Tuskegee there are many different ways of keeping a student motivated and moving forward to gaining nothing but A's out of all of his/her classes. Within each of the different colleges on the campus are the various tools each student needs to keep building themselves up. Tools such as; computer labs, study rooms, and professors that are willing to stay later than their usual office hours to help. On top of that there are tutoring sessions throughout the day with more than one person tutoring so if there is something they do not know then the next person will.

    Great for these types of students

    Those that like smaller classes with more interaction with the teacher.

    Tips for prospective students

    FOCUS! Do not be one of those first-year students that has to get a wake-up call their first semester and play catch-up the second. If you don't have a car, it helps to find friends that do because TU can get boring.

    Bang for the buck

    I don't see where the money is going for TU to cost as much as it does. Administration also screws up financial aid sometimes and gives you the run-around.

    Am enjoying being here

    There are a lot of activities to be involved in on campus. On the downside, there is nothing to do in the city of Tuskegee unless you party. Other than that, you have to go to Auburn or Montgomery. It's even worse if you don't have a car.

    Am learning a lot

    I am learning a lot from the classes that go with my major (computer science and math). On the other hand, a lot of the other recommended first-year classes are repeats of what was done in high school. It's not bad, just redundant but I don't feel like I'm missing out on a learning experience.

    Academically involved Social extroverts Students that take pride in their University Students looking to impact the world as a whole Students looking to succeed

    Tips for prospective students

    - GO TO CLASS - Get to know your professors - Study!!!!! - Make sure you are financially clear prior to the start of the year. - Apply for scholarships - If you are able to experience Tuskegee share it with others. - Be open minded - Take time to learn some of the history of Tuskegee - Have fun in your spare time! - Be ready to meet a variety of people - Remember you are working toward building a professional person

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition at Tuskegee is very expensive because it is a private institution. Alumni, Investors, as well as the University's newly appointed President are all working in collaboration to assure students that Tuskegee Univerisity continues to grow (new buidings, new programs, better technology).

    Am enjoying being here

    There is no atmostphere like TUSKEGEE!!!! The Tuskegee experience is a vast compilation of academic excellence and social superiority. Younger students are allowed the time time and environment to find themselves under the close watch and guidance of older more knowledgable students.

    Am learning a lot

    Tuskegee University provides one of the most diverse learning environments of any institution I have seen. The opportunity to learn something new, both inside and outside of the classroom is always present.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who like to meet new people, students who want to learn more about their black history, and anyone who is interested in earning a degree from a prestigious university like Tuskegee.

    Tips for prospective students

    Bring a car, stay on top of administration, and stay focused with your studies (it is very easy to fall behind)

    Bang for the buck

    It is worth it but you have to make sure you stay on time of administration. Sometimes they have trouble keeping important documents that hold you back from being financially cleared. But for the quality education we are receiving it is worth it.

    Am enjoying being here

    Tuskegee is a community of loving people but since it is in a rural area it may be hard to get places without a car.

    Am learning a lot

    The courses that every student must take are challenging but well worth it. Tuskegee is known for the quality education that students are given.

    Everyone

    Tips for prospective students

    STUDY and FOCUS!!! Those are the two most important things to do here and there's not a lot out here so it shouldn't be that hard. If you have any problems with any subject DO NOT be afraid to ask for help because people will help you understand and pass the course and you won't have to repeat it. So stay smart and focused but also have fun.

    Bang for the buck

    Tuskegee University is a bit pricey because it is a private school. I know for sure for certain majors you get your moneys worth.

    Am enjoying being here

    I come from a small area outside of Atlanta but have been used to the city life. When I came to Tuskegee, there was a big change from city to country but with the right attitude and group of friends you'll have a great time. I'm an Architect major and because people in my major are always around each other in classes we bound very closely and quick.

    Am learning a lot

    This school is a very historic school to attend. While you spend your time here in your studies, you also learn a lot about the history of the campus as well because ever since it was founded, there has been many events that make the city and campus historical.

    Campus Safety

    the campus is safe and if there are any problems, incidents can be reported to the campus police.

    Greek Life

    there are the traditional african-american fraternities and sororities on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    there are many clubs that are affiliated with different fields of study at the university. there are non-academic clubs and organizations that focus on political and civil rights issues. the naacp, the marching pipers band, and concert choir are some to name a few.

    Great for these types of students

    tuskegee is ideal for students who do not mind being in a rural area and are very much interested in the sciences.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    tuskegee university has a rich history that began with booker t. washington the first president of the university. booker t. washington was an author, an educator and a political leader. george washington carver a renowned scientist, inventor and professor at tuskegee revolutionized the world of agriculture. the first squadron of african-american pilots to fight in ww ii trained at tuskegee and became known as the red tails or the tuskegee airmen.

    Bang for the buck

    considering the cost of the school, the location, and the hands on experiences, i feel the university provides its students with a stimulating and worthwhile learning experience.

    What to do for fun

    if you want to have fun on campus there are seasonal sports to attend such as football and basketball games. in addition, different organizations host various events on campus. there are talent and fashion shows as well. if you want to have fun off campus auburn and montgomery are nearby towns not too far from tuskegee. there are also a host of parties students can attend on and off campus.

    Food and Dining

    presently the original dining hall is undergoing renovations. in the interim, another facility is used to accommodate students. this dining area can be overcrowded at times and servings and choices are limited. however, there are two other eateries on campus if you don't like cafeteria-style food. off campus and in the city of tuskegee there are five fast food restaurants (quiznos, mcdonald's kfc, etc.) and at least three other local eateries. from what i understand, the renovations for the original cafeteria will be completed in the near future.

    Dorm Life

    dormitory life is interesting. sometimes there are activities that take place which bring about camaraderie within the dormitory such as the dorm step show competition. there are also other events that take place on the different floors in the dormitory. one downside to living in the dormitory is the microwave policy.

    Academic Rigor

    some of the courses are moderately fair while others are intense. there are support systems in place if you need help. it is important to meet with your advisers and instructors who can assist you. i have taken some advanced courses, as an incoming freshman, that have been very difficult and even stressful at times. however, most of my instructors have supported my efforts and will make themselves or other support staff available to assist a student in need.

    Tips for prospective students

    for prospective students you need to be prepared to do things for yourself, yet be willing to ask questions when you need assistance. the upperclassmen are helpful and most of the staff is supportive. there is a tutoring center and there are organizations that you can get involved in once you get situated with college life.

    In three sentences

    tuskegee university is a great school. coming from an ethnically diverse high school, i feel this university is rich in history and culture. the academic curriculum for students interested in the sciences is phenomenal because these programs offer hands on experiences.

    Great for the types of students that are used to being in a small town, and have no problems with being easily distracted from work.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be wary of all the events going on. Some of them have a tendency to be one week away from midterms or finals, so please don't let yourself be too distracted by the festivities. Enjoy yourselves, but not so much that you don't go to class, or worse, do badly on exams.

    Bang for the buck

    Though going to Tuskegee University costs alot, especially if you don't have financial aid, I definitely think it's worth it, because of my major. Tuskegee is said to have one of the best Nursing programs in Alabama, so I just grin and bear it, so to speak.

    Am enjoying being here

    I like the fact that there is always something going on on campus, but if you're not into clubbing, it can get pretty boring. As a person from Tuskegee, I know first-hand that there is absolutely nothing to do, such as going to the mall, movies, etc, unless you are willing to travel at least 30 minutes to get there. And if you don't have a car? Oh well....the dorms can be kind of shifty, though I am hoping the one I'm placed in this year will be better. Girls: beware of Adams Hall! White Hall is one of the best on campus.

    Am learning a lot

    I am an upcoming sophomore with a Nursing major, which is said to be one of the hardest majors at Tuskegee University. While I am hoping for that not to be completely true, I have personally gone through the set Nursing students' schedule, and it is grueling, despite the fact that I was only a freshman. I've learned to be patient with myself, and know that I came here for an education, and no matter how hard it may seem, the end results will be well worth it. I've also learned from other students mistakes to avoid partying too close to midterms or any other exams. I'ts not worth a night of partying to get an F on an exam-it may not seem like it, but it definitely affercts your GPA in the long run.

    All types, really.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't get caught up in the college life. A better way to say it: have a social life and have fun, but not too much fun. Remember your academics is why you're at Tuskegee to begin with.

    Bang for the buck

    Tuskegee isn't cheap, I will not sugar coat it or anything. But for all you learn and your experience as a college student, it's well worth it. At times you may disagree, but believe me, it's worth every penny.

    Am enjoying being here

    Everyone is so friendly! It's not hard to make friends at all, and there is a lot of school spirit, I learned that day 1. The campus is quite nice to look at, as well as historical. The atmosphere is welcoming.

    Am learning a lot

    They say there is nothing like the Tuskegee Experience, and truer words have never been spoken. You will definitely learn a lot in and out the classroom, and about everything from yourself to the opposite sex to life in general.

    Campus is safe as it can be. Just make sure you lock your car door and room door at all times.

    Greek Life

    To become a Greek here is hard to do, but can be done if you have the time and patient for everything they will ask you to do and pay.

    Clubs and Activities

    They have many clubs and activities on campus, you just have to visit the student union often to find out what's going on.

    If you like peace and quite this is a great place to be.

    Any new building being built on campus must use bricks from the old building it's replacing. This is a tradition here at Tuskegee.

    Bang for the buck

    The campus is beautiful and the people here are so nice. A lot of the neighborhood people hang out on campus which is OK sometimes, but not all the time.

    Campus Safety

    My family was most concerned about the campus safety. Being the first girl to go off to college safety was the biggest issue. My parents stressed that if i didn't feel safe then i should let them know. I feel very safe on campus. we have 24 hour security in and outside the dorms. The campus police are also 24 hours if every a problem were to a rise, or if you are a female and need a ride from one part of campus to your dorm and its late.

Another favorite of mine would be the pizza and sub sandwiches. Non of the food is horrible. as far as the facility it is big and spacious.

    Campus Safety

    Heard about violent incidents on campus in previous years but so far have never seen or heard anything on campus since this year, although there are many thefts on campus. The school is open to the natives of the community so one would have to be careful regardless.

    Greek Life

    Greek Life is strong on campus, there are many activities surrounding the fraternities and sororities.

    Clubs and Activities

    Many clubs and societies on campus, the Greeks are the most organized and active apart from SGA, the band and the f=dance troupes.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for student who thrive in small social and academical settings.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Dorm Wars which is usually between the freshmen girls and boys dorm. It is the home for Booker T Washington. Has many historically significant buildings on campus.

    Bang for the buck

    The school is affordable and there are loads of scholarships available to students. They will even work in a payment plan if needed.

    What to do for fun

    There are many different activities on campus based on your preference whether it is dancing, Greek life, band, community service, choir ect. If it's not there you can always start one.

    Food and Dining

    At the moment the quality in the food and dining department is definitely lacking. Food at times cannot be identified, is usually cold and not healthy at all. Vegetarian food is served, however whether it's healthy or not is also questionable. Cafeteria hours are limited, but there is a restaurant on campus which closes at eleven in case students are up late studying.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm Life is a bit mediocre in terms of infrastructure however at the moment there are many plans in progress geared towards improving the quality of dorm life.

    Academic Rigor

    General requirement classes are pretty decent, however as you progress in your academic career, core classes tend to get more difficult and time consuming.

    Tips for prospective students

    There are many activities on campus, so it's easy to get distracted. Always try to maintain focus. Double check in ever aspect of your school career whether it is academic wise, schedule, financial aid and so forth, it may take faculty a while to update students statuses. Always pay attention to academic curriculum, it is very easy to miss required classes here, and then you might end up staying an extra semester to make it up.

    In three sentences

    Tuskegee is a good school if you are looking for a small place to grow academically and blossom. It has a family like atmosphere and the teachers are willing to work with students if interest is shown. It is easier to achieve objectives once you are known to faculty and staff.

    Food and Dining

    I personally enjoy anything edible, so the food in my opinion was manageable. The only downfall were the portion sizes and the fact that one was only allowed one very small portion at a time.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is fairly basic. There is air-conditioning and heat in all the dorms, but the negative aspect of dorm life is the community showers. The dorms also contained mold and dust which bothered my allergies, which affected my dorm life experience.

    Academic Rigor

    The curriculum, in my opinion, is just as challenging as any other engineering school. The professors are very knowledgeable in the material they teach. The only reason I give Tuskegee four stars is because the technology and learning material could be updated.

    Tips for prospective students

    Even though there is always someone willing to help you at Tuskegee one still has work hard to meet whomever is helping that person half way at least. Professors are willing to work with you only if you are willing to work.

    In three sentences

    A small school that has a family oriented environment. You are more than a number at Tuskegee and everyone is always trying to help the other succeed. With the family oriented environment and positive attitude of the faculty and students to succeed Tuskegee is a very good school to get a quality education and enjoy doing so.

    What to do for fun

    Tuskegee University is in the middle of a very small town.For fun most students attend shopping areas in nearby cities such as Auburn and Montgomery. On weekends most students attend parties.

    Food and Dining

    The food is a 6 out of 10. At times the cafeteria has decent meals and other times they don't. Our cafeteria is in a temporary building due to the reconstruction of the old cafeteria, which should be ready Fall 2012

    Dorm Life

    Greek life is somewhat dominant. Different sororities and fraternities are always throwing different parties. When each sorority or fraternity has their own week during the academic school year it is very intersting.

    Academic Rigor

    Stay focused in all classes. Arrive on time especially for exams and tests. Visit professors bi-weekly to be updated on all assignments and grades especially if grades are not up to par.

    Tips for prospective students

    Come in with an open mind. Remember to go to class and complete all asignments as soon as possible. Be friendly and be ready to meet new people.

    The Valley is one of the places on campus where we have pep rallys and hang out with friends. It's also a great shortcut to class in some cases.

    My dorm was pretty nice. We have some not so great ones too but you have to make the best of it.

    Academic Rigor

    You have some hard classes and then you have your easy classes just like you would at any other college. Mother Tuskegee is not going to go easy on you but it's up to you make it through and prosper.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always remember to stay on top of your game and to keep an open mind when things are not going the way you want. There are so many things that you will be able to do on campus with more exciting things on the way and many exciting people to meet.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The Yard - something to look forward to that would be best understood in person as events take place throughout the year

    What to do for fun

    Tuskegee is located a very small rural town that might be unlike anything you're use to. What to do for fun is dominated by campus life and there is plenty of it, numerous clubs and activity's to watch or participate in including Greek life, who host a lot of activities themselves. Whenever off campus fun becomes necessary the much larger and urban city of Auburn is located only a small 12 minutes away, here you can find a mall and movie theater among plenty of other activities.

    Food and Dining

    The university cafeteria is currently being renovated, what has been currently put in place is moderately making do serving as the campus cafeteria, the food is average. Not counting the Kellogg Hotel's very nice and upscale restaurant that's on campus, there are two other restaurants on campus which serve a pretty decent menu.

    Dorm Life

    At Tuskegee University, juniors, seniors, or anyone with at least 60 credits can reside comfortably in apartment style housing. Freshman and sophomores are put in a gauntlet of what I'd call chance and opportunity, unfortunately many students don't fare so well in obtaining a newer renovated dorm and have to settle with the historic dormitories who haven't been renovated. The biggest issue with these bad dormitories isn't the rooms but the usage of community style restrooms for an entire floor, which unacceptable. Many place the blame on Tuskegee University's past leadership but our new president Dr. Rochon is actively renovating and building new dorm fixing many of these issues.

    Academic Rigor

    Tuskegee University is a ranked academic institution that isn't afraid to drop any student who doesn't take their studies seriously. While some university get easier as students progress throughout their years, Tuskegee works in reverse, depending on what courses are being taken the freshman year may seem relatively easy at first but things get exponentially harder often leaving the unprepared behind in the dust.

    Tips for prospective students

    Finding a balance between education, sleep, and a social life is crucial to surviving at Tuskegee. The average students needs all three but some will neglect one aspect over the other two. Also students tend to get more serious about their GPA as the progress throughout their years, it's crucial that students treat their freshman year as serious as any other and obtain a really good GPA to cushion any mistakes that may happen in the future.

    In three sentences

    Headed by notable figures such as Booker T. Washington, this university is saturated among a rich history of buildings, campus life, and the pursuit of higher learning. The university has its share of problems however this doesn't detour its students from developing a strong bond with the university as they successful pursue their degrees and future endeavors. Regarding education it's safe to say only the strong will survive as degree programs gradually get harder and students get more serious progressing through their years at Tuskegee.

    Campus Safety

    The campus security is very reliable. They offer police escorts at night or when it's raining to escort anyone to their dorms, they're very tactful, and they do what they can to keep those on campus safe from harm.

    Greek Life

    I don't know much about the Greek life being that I haven't pledged yet. But I will say that during the month of Greek Weeks, the Greeks know how to have a good time and show what their fraternity/sorority are all about.

    Clubs and Activities

    Honestly, there are way too many clubs on campus. Majority of the clubs are associated with the majors such as the Pre-Vet Club and MAANRS which are both associated with the Animal/Poultry Science major.

    Great for these types of students

    Tuskegee is a great school for those students who want the out-of-state experience and who are willing to adjust to the change in location. Like I said, Tuskegee is located in a little town in Alabama. If you're a city girl like me, transitioning from Miami to Tuskegee wasn't that much of a challenge because I'm used to being in a country setting being that I was always in Georgia visiting family, so, i was willing to make the change. Tuskegee is also known for it's vet program, which ranks #1 in on the charts. If you're a high school junior/senior and you want to major in Animal/Poultry Science, Tuskegee is the school for you. Other than that, you'd have to come to Tuskegee yourself to see if it's the right school for you.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    One tradition that they have at Tuskegee is the Freshman Transition get-together, which occurs after freshman orientation week. This is when all the freshman as well as the orientation leaders come together, one last time, and enjoy each other's company before the fall semester starts. Another tradition that they usual have on campus is the Christmas in the Cafe, the 80's/90's Bash, the Dorm Step Show, and of course Homecoming.

    Bang for the buck

    Tuskegee is ranked #1 in the HBCU chart for academics. For those willing or planning to come here for college, I assure you, you will get your money's worth. I'm proud to say that I'm a Tuskegee woman because Tuskegee is like no other College/University. Some people may complain about it because its in a small, country town. But those people need to realize how much history is bestowed from Tuskegee, how much of a positive impact Tuskegee has had on so many historical figures such as George Washington Carver. Band for the Buck? I say take the risk and come to Tuskegee. There's No Experience like the Tuskegee experience.

    What to do for fun

    There's always something to do on campus. Whether its something on the yard or something in the student union, there is always something to do. My advise to those prospective students would to get involved in clubs and organizations, but only if you can fit them into your schedule.

    Food and Dining

    The food at the school, in my opinion, is great; it's healthy. Although right now at the moment, the original cafe is being renovated, the cafe we were in last semester was acceptable and always kept clean.

    Dorm Life

    Living in a dorm was a great experience. My freshman year, I had so much fun, being able to interact with the other females in the dorm and being able to build long lasting friendships with those I got an opportunity to know. Living in a dorm with a roommate is like a test: to build tolerance, patience, and cleanliness (if you're the type who gets lazy and doesn't like to clean). Another thing is, during the fall semester, they have fun activities especially during homecoming, which a big event for the entire campus.

    Academic Rigor

    At Tuskegee, academics are EVERYTHING. It is an important rule to stay on top of your classes or else you can easily fall behind. Some of the professors are very strict about their classes and how often their students attend. Its also good to stay in contact with your professor. Don't hesitate to ask him/her questions regarding anything that was gone over in the class. Other than that, the classes are pretty easy. Just study the material and attend the class and you'll be fine.

    Tips for prospective students

    Tips for prospective students: if you do decide to attend Tuskegee, be sure to manage your time wisely. I'm going into my 3rd year at Tuskegee so I have more than enough experience. It is fun being out on your own and being away from home, but at the end of the day, you have to remember Priorities before Parties. You're at school for an education, not to party and forget your purpose for being there.

    In three sentences

    Tuskegee is a great school and I'm glad I chose to go here. The school is diverse and the atmosphere is so welcoming. I would recommend anyone to go here for college.

    The dorms for both men and women are undergoing renovation and some will be replaced in the next two years. There are special academic dorms for those who make the grades that are very nice but overall the dorm life at TU is tremendous with lots to do after class.

    Academic Rigor

    The class load can be handled but as a student you will need to follow thru on your credits and course load. you are expected to be up on everything that you need in order to graduate.

    Tips for prospective students

    Living on campus is the best option. The city is very small and has little recreation outside of campus. The winters in Alabama are very mild but the Spring and Summer is hot and muggy.

    In three sentences

    Campus Safety

    Depending on the time of year, security is either really lax or overly enforced. The campus police department could use a course or two on finding and sticking to a middle ground.

    Greek Life

    I am not a greek, so I speak from the perspective of someone in the general population. Some greek organizations distance themselves from the general population until it is time for one of their events. Other greek organizations (mainly the service organizations) are easily attainable and provide activities and entertainment on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is always something going on around campus. If you can not find a club that caters to your specific interest there is the option to start your own. With such a diverse student body, the range of activities makes hard to claim boredom.

    Great for these types of students

    Tuskegee University is a great higher learning institution for students who appreciate smaller class sizes, historical values, and nature. The student body enforces the law of respectability and expects everyone to dress and act classy.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    No student who wished to graduate is to walk across the grave of Booker T. Washington, the founder and first president of the institute.

    Bang for the buck

    For the high cost of tuition to attend this private institution, one would think the accommodations for the students would be better. The good news is there is a new president for the university and he is making changes. Hopefully they will prove to be in the best interest of the students in the future.

    What to do for fun

    There is always something going on on campus. Campus organizations constantly host parties, fashion shows, talent shows, games, etc to raise interest and money. There are yoga classes, kick boxing classes, and other fitness classes held daily. Community service is another popular way to pass time for Tuskegee students. Flyers that are posted around campus are the easiest way to know what is going on. There is a student website that sometimes provide event details but it is not always reliable. Social networks are another good way to put your ear to the ground to see what is happening.

    Food and Dining

    Currently the Tompkins dining hall is being renovated. That means bad food shipped from a kitchen at an unknown location to a building far from majority of the dorms. There is the option to eat at Wild Wings Cafe but the food is overpriced and the customer service need improvement. Students who live in dorms are not allowed to have hot plates so if you buy groceries for your room, it has to be microwaveable.

    Dorm Life

    The university requires underclassmen to live on campus. The dorms could be and should be better for the cost of living on campus. The rooms are generally small and fill up quickly. The campus dorm rules quickly get old. There is a fine for many things including missing a dorm meeting. Along with making adult students feel like they are back in high school, a lot of the rules actually provide an inconvenience for the students. Many others are just annoying.

    Academic Rigor

    There is no such thing as an easy course at Tuskegee University. Sometimes it can feel as if all the professors are working against you by giving you heavy loads of assignments at the same time. Since the classes are relatively small, there is always the option of having one-on-one time with a professor if there is any problem with completing the assignment. However, if you wait until the assignment is almost due, a professor is less likely to show you any sympathy and will provide little help.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective students must understand that the university is located in a rural area. There are often difficulties with administration so it is easier to submit any paperwork early.

    In three sentences

    Tuskegee University is a HBCU filled with great cultural history. The large campus is filled with beautiful landscape and original structures preserved through renovations. Small class sizes along with the emphasize of participation in campus activities provide an enriched learning experience.

    Campus Safety

    I can honestly say that the campus is not really that safe, even if there is security, but it is really the students' job to be smart and to not go anywhere on campus by themselves at night and do not become involved with the locals.

    Greek Life

    Greek life is always fun at any HBCU. They throw great parties, are also involved around the school. The probates are also fun to watch. Greek week is another great part of Greek life.

Which ever dorm that wins gets to perform at the first step show during homecoming week. Another tradition that we have is dorm wars. The guys get together as well as the girls get together and plan how they are going to sabotage each other's dorms.

    Tips for prospective students

    For prospective students who are attending, the most important thing is to stay focused because there will be plenty of distractions. Tuskegee University is a very expensive school and you cannot afford to be failing classes. Besides all that, Tuskegee University is a great experience so it is important that you become involved so that you can love your HBCU just as much as i do.

    Campus Safety

    For any school, the campus is only as safe as its denizens. Fortunately, the Tuskegee University police is always alert and on the job for any suspicious or illegal activity. If students are facing any domestic issues, they will happily be a mediator in the situation. Students are well informed about where to locate officials and how to handle situations in an appropriate manor.

    Clubs and Activities

    Tuskegee University has a variety of clubs and activities. These clubs consist of students, faculty, and alumni. There are clubs for almost every state, honor society, Greeks, language, and clubs for certain majors. If there is not a club that suits your interest, you can create your own! Certain organizations on campus even cater to making student life as great of an experience as possible. Some activities held on campus include the BET College Tour, concerts, dances, socials, forums and so much more.

    Food and Dining

    The food in the cafeteria is exceptional and is available to all students with a meal plan. The dining hall is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. One thing that seems to upset a lot of students is having to wait in line for food and hoping items do not run out. However, it is an all-you-can-eat buffet.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life at Tuskegee University can be overwhelming and misleading. Not all dorms are the same; some are a lot better than others. In most dorms on campus, there is a public bathroom on each floor which contains about twenty people. There is one kitchen for the entire building and one microwave for each floor if the residence hall makes it available to the students. There is no curfew; however, opposite sex visitors are only allowed in the designated lounge between 4:00 p.m. and 12:00 midnight. Mandatory meetings come around eight times for each semester. Students who do not attend these meetings will be fined.

    Academic Rigor

Five stars are given to this university because everyone (students and staff included) are available to assist and encourage students in their college journey. Tutorials, study groups, and contact information of all instructors and advisers are available to the students so that they have the tools to succeed.

    Tips for prospective students

    For anyone hoping to attend or visit Tuskegee University, it is one of the main attractions in the city of Tuskegee. If you are self-motivated, do not mind a bit of a struggle, and want to know how to survive in the real world while working to achieve your degree, then Tuskegee is right for you.

    Campus Safety

    This year TUPD has gotten very strict, and sort of locked the campus down. So yes, I feel absolutely safe on campus.

    Greek Life

    You will absolutely LOVE our Greeks! For the most part, most of them are very down to earth and just fun to be around. Being around them you will never have a bad time.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is too many to even name. Tuskegee has almost everything you can think of, and if they don't, it's a simple process that you can go through in order to get the club or activity that you feel like we're missing.

    What to do for fun

    Tuskegee is a very small town so there isn't much to do, however, Auburn is only 20 minutes away. So if you are bringing your car or have friends with cars, you can always go shopping or out to eat in Auburn. They have a lot of nice boutiques and dining places.

    Food and Dining

    Well what can I say about our cafeteria... When it comes to the food in the cafe, you never know if it will be good or not. The days that you can count on the food being good, are Wednesdays (Fried Chicken Wednesdays) and Fridays (Fish Fridays). However, they are renovating our old cafe, and they say that it should be finished this fall, so the food should be a lot better.

    Dorm Life

    The freshman female dorms are HORRIBLE. Well the rooms are not so bad, but the bathrooms are just out right nasty. We have a cleaning lady who comes and cleans and she does a great job, however, living with females is very gross and a lot of them DO NOT know how to clean up after themselves. The honor dorms, however, are very nice. James is an co-ed dorm and it is also nice. As for the boys dorms, they are ALL disgusting lol. Except for the honors dorm, Rockefeller. It is extremely nice and spacious.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on your major, the work will sometimes be extremely hard and if you do not have good study habits, you will find yourself behind.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not let the whole I'm finally free attitude cause problems for you. Meaning, yes you are finally away from home and there is no one here making you go to class so you might feel as though you can just go out and do whatever, but I am warning you it will cause nothing but trouble for you. My fall semester I went wild, went out all the time and did not study, so now this semester I was really playing catch up. Tuskegee is not called TU for no reason. My school TURNS UP, however, you just have to know how to party hard but study even harder, and if you learn how to do that, you will have the best of both worlds.

    Tuskegee University is rather expensive, including everything beyond tuition, that much has to be said; however, in return, you are getting one of the greatest educations ever. So long as you do not get distracted by partying or typical college life, and stay inside the books, the reward will be phenomenal. And if you happen to have performed well enough in high school so that you are rewarded a scholarship, that means only meager things such as fees or other extra expenses like vehicle registration will get in your way. Not a bad deal at all.

    Campus Safety

    The campus security are always doing their job, especially around the girls dorm at night. They make nightly rounds around the school and through each dorm to make sure nothing is wrong. They show up at most of the on-school parties so they are always around.

    What to do for fun

    The student union is opening soon at Thompkins hall so that is definitely something to do for future students, especially since it will be open 24 hours. If you don't have a car, and want to get away from campus, there is a shuttle that goes to Eastdale Mall and Wal-Mart in Montegomery every weekend. Try and find your own fun, especially since most buildings at the school are open 24 hours. You can play basketball at 2 am in the morning in the school gym if you want to. It's all about what you consider to be fun.

    Food and Dining

    The newly renovated Thompkins hall is where the cafeteria is held. The food isn't bad at all, but the food gets repetitive since they only change one item on the menu a day and keep the rest the same. If you get bored of the cafeteria food, the school gives you tiger points to spend at the school grill, the on-school starbucks, and the on-school convenience store.

    Dorm Life

    For male freshman, the best dorm to live in is Younge Hall. Dorms are for the most part clean, and the RA's are pretty lenient especially since they are mostly sophomores so you don't have to worry too much about getting fined. There are also competitions between dorms like a Halloween decorating contest and step competitions. Definitely live in dorms, because that is where you will make most of your friends.

    Academic Rigor

    From what i experienced so far as a freshman, the academic rigor is not hard at all, it is just a matter of time management. Do not get distracted and just study, and you will definitely do good your first year.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are going to go to this school, make sure this is where you really want to go. The rural atmosphere catches a lot of people off guard, especially if they are not use to it, and causes many people to transfer.

    In three sentences

    If you are from the city, and want to experience country life, this school is definitely one to go to. Be prepared for a lot of walking, especially if you are a freshman because Tuskegee is built on many hills. Also be prepared for the weather; even though Alabama will be hot, it rains frequently, but the rain will catch you off guard if you do not heed to weather reports.

    The SOUL INN is the main club that everyone attends, a hot box but you'll usually have a good time. Block parties , kickbacks, chilling on the yard, House parties, we make our own fun

    Food and Dining

    The cafe is beautiful and the food is okay. It needs more variety if you ask me. but if you love stir fry, pizza, sandwhiches/ wraps, and fried chicken then you will love the cafe because that is mainly what they serve. The cafe has its on and off days where the food could be really really good and you never want to leave and days where you don't want to eat the rest of your plate. Its also one of the main social Gatherings.

    Dorm Life

    Their are their are 10 girls well actually 11 (one is being renovated and not in use) and 5 boys dorm well actually 6 the dorm James is CO-ED(understand the girl to guy ratio). I will say about half of the girls dorm are decent and up to date (Harvey, White, Tantum, Douglas, and James) , and maybe the emory's if you like to be secluded. Make sure you and your roomate are good roomates, if not when you are able to switch roomates or dorms please do so to prevent altercations.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on your major and how you handle your priorities will depend on the Academic Rigor that is placed on you. Tuskegee is a private institute which means they're not that many students in your class, so it is possible to have a slight more personal relationship with your professors. Use that to your advantage and get to know them at the beginning of the year.

    Tips for prospective students

    For prospective students I recommend that you are well prepared for the staff of Tuskegee University. Make sure that before you arrive you have everything that you need such as Financial aid, scholarships, grants, & etc, and make sure that TUSKEGEE has on record for what you need to attend the school. Be prepared for the Dorm life, although the dorms are older it is a good experience to be in them. Understand that this is A University, & unlike most universities Tuskegee will give you chances and you will have a love hate relationship with the school. Be prepared to have one of the GREATEST experience that you will ever encounter in your life.

    In three sentences

    Tuskegee University is a Great opportunity if you want the experience of an historically black college. It has many perks with attending here, and also comes with a lot of disadvantages. I recommend it to any student who wants the experience of HBCU living.
