"I don’t know about the other reviewers on here, but since I started in 2015, I was met with nothing but lazy staff. Every call that I have ever been in I had to wait +4hours to be connected to someone. At one point, when I was a freshman, I continuously called advisement for 9 hours (from 9:00am to 6:00pm) to get a hold of someone and got no responses or call backs. That was not the first instance either. I am GLAD I graduated so I don’t have to see that place again. All phone calls are a headache to make. Stay away if you want a responsive university. Most of the reviews here must be staff made, because the university is horrendous."

"FAMU is a great university with rich history and culture, supportive faculty and administration, and an energetic campus. During my four years, I majored in Biology/Pre-med and minored in Chemisty and Psychology. My professors were supportive, knowledgeable, and expected nothing but the best from me. I am proud to be a FAMU alumna. Go Rattlers!"

  • Graduation Year: 1986
"My personal experience as a Respiratory Therapist student at FAMU was indeed an educational experience with a practicum of hands on in the clinical setting. The professors were superb in delivering the content for every course and they were available to assist you with questions on a daily basis. The students were competitive and we had study groups often. I felt more like a practitioner than a student! The professors coordinated with local hospitals and out of state hospitals to ensure that we were getting the best hands on training. I highly recommend students to major in Respiratory Care / Cardiopulmonary Science at FAMU."

"Florida A&M University is not only an amazing school for education but it also a cultural experience. If you are like me and went to predominantly white schools or even if you attended predominantly black schools this university's students and faculty are dedicated to show you black excellence at its finest. It truly is a family where everyone just wants to see each other succeed."

"Florida A&M University is an excellent university. Every professor is dedicated to the students and wants to make sure each student succeeds. To learn the campus and make new friends, join organizations as a freshman. I have worked for two government agencies and I believe this college prepared me to be a top candidate. The best advice I would give prospective students is to stay on top of their financial aid and credits. The administrative side of this college prepares you for the adult world. Students must take full responsibility and handle of of their financial obligations. This college will not hold your hand or baby you, as it relates to financial obligations."

"Florida A&M University was a wonderful experience. Although I was there for only two years after receiving my associates degree, I felt like I walked into a nurturing environment. Although they nurtured me, they never let me forget my goal of graduating. I was constantly meeting with my advisor to help ensure that I had been doing everything well. Although I wanted my children to go to Florida A&M, my education has been a wonderful journey that has led me to who I believe that I am."

"Florida A&M University is a historically black university. It has a rich history of assisting students with their education in order to prepare them for the world. The faculty and staff were heavily invested in my success. The class sizes were small which allowed the professors to provide a quality education to each student. My academic advisors were knowledgeable and instrumental in helping thrive in college. The university has many professional organizations such as the honors program. The program allows you to take honors classes and attend professional conferences. It gives the students an opportunity to collaborate and network with students from other universities. I enjoyed my time as a biology student because my department helped my find many research opportunities and internships. I was able to conduct research at Yale University and Albert Einstein College of Medicine. At the time I wanted to be a physician and they gave me a yearly plan that outlined everything I needed to accomplish in order to get accepted into medical school. The department faculty has an open door policy and it made me feel like I could talk to them about anything. I had a personal relationship with most of my professors and still maintain contact with them. The entire department gave me the impression that they wanted us to become as successful as possible. This feeling rang true because many of my former classmates are at prestigious medical schools all across the country. I am proud to be a graduate from Florida A&M University."

"Attending Florida A&M University was one of the best decisions I have ever made. If you value learning about your heritage and culture, FAMU is the right place for you. I also enjoyed the fact that compared to other institutions and universities the classes were smaller in size which granted a closer relationship with professors. I am satisfied with the faculty and staff. Whenever I had a problem or concern I was always answered promptly. I am also satisfied with the quality of my degree."

"Great school for engineering technology. The practical knowledge learned got me my first high paying job at FMC Technologies. If you really want to be the best, the lectures can open up the creativity within. I would recommend that one take a look at this HBCU first."
