While Fayetteville State is a great school. With its vast number of programs and clubs offered there is always something to do. Although this school is a HBCU there is still some diversity with the students, the food, and the classes.
Tips for prospective students
If you are looking for a University with a small campus and small classes then FSU is for you. Attending a small campus is extremely convenient for a student that is attending, especially if you live on campus. Most, if not all of your classes are walking distance from most of the dorms. Meaning that if you have a class at 8:00am you can leave 7:30 stop at the café wait for your coffee and still have time to spare. Having smaller classes provides a better learning opportunity, which allows the student to get a better grasp of what's being taught. It is because there aren't as many distractions when dealing with a larger class. It also allows you to get a better relationship amongst you professors when all they have to focus on is 16-22 students instead of 50+ Not only that, but FSU has a wide variety of resources you may need to help progress through your time in college.
Academic Rigor
While the classes are somewhat difficult, the professors are very helpful and do whatever they can to help you succeed. There are many centers provided for students that need help with their classes as well as tutors students can go to that can also help with that students grades.
Dorm Life
While many of the dorms are small there is actually a good side to that. Living in the dorms that are small allows students to get a better relationship with both the RA's and the students there. It also makes the transition from home life to dorm life much easier because of the support and encouragement that is given by staff and RA's and CSO's.
Food and Dining
The food is very good. There is a wide variety of food and drinks served here at FSU. With the entertaining and buffet style décor and atmosphere, you will find yourself coming to the café everyday all day.
What to do for fun
There are many clubs and organizations to join here at FSU, so there is always something for you to do. There are also activities that are offered by FSU off campus, like the Zumba classes. There some great events that can take place on campus like concerts and sports games. The games are exciting and crazy. The Bronco Pride and spirit is shown through everyone that attends the games.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
If you hear anyone say ATTITUDE CHECK, you better be ready to say BRONCOOOOOOO PRIDE. Also if you hear ROCK IT BRONCOS ROCK IT BRONCOS, you better be ready to represent what you are by saying it louder, stronger, and more powerful i.e. Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, or Senior.
Campus Safety
The campus security is PHENOMINAL. The officers and staff on this campus truly cares about your safety. The school offers so many programs and events that you can attend to learn about how to be safe on campus and how to protect yourself when you are alone on campus. They also provide numbers that you can call if you don't feel safe walking by yourself at night. Whether its to your dorm or to your car. The security staff is always on duty and do whatever they can to keep the students and staff safe.
