What Students Are Saying

3.67 Average Rating
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.
HBCU Made
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.
