Fayetteville State University is a part of the historic HBCU network. The instructors and advisors work hard to assist students in reaching all degree goals. Classes are tough, but you walk away feeling enlightened on the subject matter. I recommend UNC/FSU wholeheartedly. Excellent school, activities, support and a fine atmosphere.
