What Students Are Saying

3.72 Average Rating
Prairie View A&M is a good hour away from Houston, all of the livelihood of the university is on campus. It's a drive from the Houston outlets, movie theaters, and such so if you're coming be sure to bring a car or have a very close friend, or family member who can drive you around to places.
Aliyah from Glendale, AZ
Manage your time wisely... It is easy to get caught up in all there is to offer. Remember that classes are priority then enjoy the college life

Register early for classes, housing, and financial aid. At the last minute you will be stuck in a long line and began to feel overwhelmed.

Do not stay crammed up in your room- Join an organization/club, GET INVOLVED!!!
Shan from Dallas, TX
As an incoming freshman I didtn get to experreince panther camp and the bond of having a building of friends to call my family, but PV is my family now and this is what I now can call home, you'll soon realize here is where you want to be, where you belong, sure it a little over well meaning but will soon realize that It only makes you a better person in the end hope this gives you the push you need to make PVAMU your new home! :D
Bremisha from Houston, TX
visit all buildings on campus, each one is filled with history.
don't be afraid to mingle and socialize.
utilize all services offered by the school including tutoring, health clinics etc

If you are willing to meet different types of people and are looking for a new experience, this school is the one for you. There is people from all around the world and the professors are down-to-earth.
Yanetti from Alton, TX
When you go to PV they will have a lot of parties, but the main focus of being there is to get your degree.So go there and have fun but you have to create a balance and prioritize to ensure that you get what your mainly going there for.
Rae from McDonough, GA
I know as you read my comments you might think I am just saying this stuff BUT IM NOT!!!!! Everything I said is REAL and I wouldnt change my school for nothing. Once your a PANTHER your ALWAYS a PANTHER!!!!!!! SO WHO YOU ROOTIN' FOR??? PVU!!!!!!
Chelsea from Prairie View, TX
Beside Prairie View's location, there is always some type of activity that enrolled students can get involved in on or around campus. It's location is also another reason that Prairie View A&M University is so family oriented. However, when choosing this University, you're in for a journey, a wonderful journey at that. Once you're a Panther you're always a Panther. PV...YOU KNOW!

Never stop applying for scholarships!
Apply for housing early!
Get involved!
