The Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University is an HBCU founded in Tallahassee in 1887, and it is the only public, historically black university in Florida. The school is highly ranked on several lists, including #6 in Historically Black Colleges and Universities by U.S. News & World Report. It is a member of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and a designated land-grant research university. The most popular undergraduate majors at FAMU are architecture, journalism, and psychology.
Florida Agriculture and Mechanical University is thee most prestige and outstanding HBCU in the land. Everyone cannot handle the Rattler lifestyle, so if you aren't up for the cause you may not make it. At FAMU you will experience a life outside from what you are use to, do not think that because you are a student from a HBCU you do not have the same level of knowledge compared to those of PWIs.
As a native northerner, I was very apprehensive about enrolling in a southern school-- especially one that is currently dealing with a national scandal. However, In the few weeks I have been here, my opinion has completely evolved. The academics, the atmosphere, the facilities, and of course, the student body are wonderful, and, I am very happy to call FAMU my home for the next four years.
