"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!"

"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."

"FAMU is a place where you're valued and an institution where you can grow. The main competitive advantage FAMU has the campus truly makes you feel apart of a family. The university staff come from a wide background but yet are still able to relate to you on an individual level. You can form great relationships with your professor to help you gain an understanding of the subject but if you're a top performer they can also recommend you to opportunities you would have otherwise never known about. The School of Business equips you to handle any environment and forces you to get out of your comfort zone with their professional leadership program. Having matriculating through this program in my undergraduate degree it's easy to see the comparison between FAMU alumni and non-FAMU alumni in a boardroom setting. We've been trained to professionally and tactfully articulate in business settings. The school is great if you believe in the program. The only critic I have is if you major in business, focus on a more quantitative aspect of your field. Learn database programming and scripting languages like SQL and Python. Learn how to analyze data. And at the very least Know Excel. All in all, FAMU is a great school just stay focused on life beyond school and set your aim to the job you want. FAMU will prepare you!"

"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."

This university cares about student education and their success in their field of study. The instructors take their time to explain the material that they are presenting to each student.

  • Degree: Healthcare Administration
"Florida A&M University (FAMU) is an excellent university located in Florida's capital city, Tallahassee. The University is rich in history as it is one of the historical black colleges and universities in the state of Florida. There are plenty of activities that cater to the graduate student population, as Florida State University is also located directly across the street from FAMU. So, there are plenty of opportunities to partake in research as well as forums to grow within your profession. My major in graduate school was Health Administration. FAMU's Health Administration program is about 16 years old as of 2017 so it is a younger degree program in health administration than other institutions. The program is rigorous as far as content but what balances the course work are your cohorts. The program's classes are in the evening hours Monday-Thursday. Studying with your cohorts within a team fashion becomes the norm; it actually mimics some environments in the healthcare field. The career opportunities are endless in Health Administration. Just in my cohort group, we have insurance personnel, finance heads in the insurance and hospital fields, I am a Regional Operations Manager with a large physician performance management group and we even have a vice president at a hospital. Networking opportunities are endless because we do have a close knit group of small cohort classes. There were about 55 credit hours in the program and it was full-time. I worked and attend school. In the last semester, you have the course of completing health management fieldwork or a capstone. Also, during our time as graduate students, we even had the opportunity to participate in case competitions to display what we have learned in course work and applied them to real live cases. I must say looking for opportunities are not led by facility and staff and that being proactive is essential to your success post graduation. Overall my experience was excellent. The University and the program are great and I am satisfied that I matriculated through both."

"Greetings I am going into my third year at Florida A&M University. I love my school, and I enjoy the people that attends here. Everyone is like one big family. This school is extremely family oriented. There is no where else I would want to be. As much as I love FAMU there is always room for improvement in certain areas when it comes to financial aid, organizing of school functions. Nevertheless I love FAMU and I would recommend any ethnic group to attend that school because it produces the best."

"If you want an atmosphere that will push you into becoming an independent learner, then this school is the right one for you. I didn't know what I really wanted to do before I graduated from high school. There were a host of teachers and church members that had attended Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University and from their experience, they wanted me to experience for myself. The rest is history. This school taught me how to be academically successful and most importantly, socially successful. I am thankful!"
