What Students Are Saying

3.66 Average Rating
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.

despite the recent traumatic events that were revealed at this school the environment is a loving and caring one.
teachers at famu teach to help students learn to help build the knowledge of african american history on a daily basis.
