You must speak to them before they speakQuite BrightNatural Resources
You must speak to them before they speak to you. There is constantly a break in, gun shot, or some other type of crime happening. It's pathetic, really. I transfered in from a junior college, and it was a reality check. Yes, this is a time to grow and become more responsible; however, no help what-so-ever is irritating. You are expected to keep up with everything (grades, transcripts,etc) because ALL THE ADMINISTRATION are LAZY. When I graduate, A&M will NEVER get a dime from me, as I can see how well the school manages money.(Much less bathrooms,parking,dorms,the list goes on) Students act as though they are still in high school, and do not expect to work.(Which is very annoying, because the teachers then baby everyone and become more laid back). Unimpressed is an understatement. The ONLY reason A&M is the school I attend is because they are more of a science oriented school compared to UAH or Athens. (Judging by the grammar I have seen at A&M, English really needs to be more sufficient.) I would suggest Jacksonville State if anyone asked. The worst thing is, students have to come to sites like this to vent because NOBODY at the school is listening. The student body is not growing as it should be, and they wonder why. Teachers want me to recruit people from junior colleges, but I would NEVER tell anyone to make this the first choice. I don't care what anyone says, this school needs to be shut down or a massive house cleaning is in store. They are on a downward spiral and I hope I'm done when it all hits the fan. They promise scholarships and don't live up to them. People seem to think that people don't chose the school because of the majority of African American race, but that's not the complete issue. REALITY CHECK: If you don't want people to keep passing judgement and stereotypes, STOP BEING THE STEREOTYPE.

Alabama A&M University is the worst school ever.AverageCriminal
Alabama A&M University is the worst school ever. I wouldnt recommend this school to my worst enemy. The students and staff are not friendly or considerate at all. The cafe feeds you the same nasty food every single day. The social life is horrible. There are no parties, kick-backs/set, or anything! If you lucky there will be a party at cross-roads but of course its off campus in downtown alabama.

I have to defend my school.AverageOther
I have to defend my school. Although Alabama A & M has many cons, I feel my pros outweighed them. My time there was excellent I made a lot of lifelong friends and I didnt learn to appreciate it until I graduated and left. If anybody ask me would I choose this school all over again, my answer would be YES!!! I love my school and I am a proud alumni but my advice to future students is always be on top of everything (finances, grads, etc) because no one is there to babysit. You are grown at this point and should always keep up.
