What Students Are Saying

3.26 Average Rating
Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University is a beautiful, activity filled campus filled with a warm atmosphere and many different types of people. Even though the campus is a historically African American university, many ethnic groups attend the college. Alabama A and M believes the service is sovereignty and is the ideal college for many.

AAMU is a great institution where students come first. The teachers care about us and were not just a number. When I have kids my kids will attend this great University.
