*IF YOU ASK ANYONE IF A&T WAS THEIRQuite BrightPolitical Science
*IF YOU ASK ANYONE IF A&T WAS THEIR FIRST CHOICE, THEY WILL SAY NO!* A&T is ONLY for North Carolina people. If you are not from North Carolina (or even from the DMV area) you will be treated as an outcast. There is little to none Greek Life and Campus life is just dead. The University does not do anything on campus unless it is a Career Fair. SGA is a joke, anything on campus is a joke. THEY CHARGE YOU FOR EVERYTHING (i.e. laundry, printing). This is a money hunger university. The girls here are stuck-up and too concerned with how they look and who they are getting attention from instead of focusing on their education. All the boys do is smoke, drink and try to find girls to have sex with. A&T is a party school (it is known for GHOE (our homecoming), so if you do not go out, this school is not for you. There is nothing to do in Greensboro, North Carolina, this city is dead. On the weekends, you will starve if you stay on campus (the cafe's hours are horrible and our "UV" does not open until 6pm :)) If you are not a Animal Science, Engineering, or JOMC (Journalism or Mass Communications) major, they do not care about you. The dorms are filthy (if you stay on the southside of campus), they have ant invasions all the time, and maintenance takes forever to come and fix things. I wanted the HBCU experience, but I am highly disappointed in what I have experienced. All in all, college is what you make it, I have met some great people here, and have had great times, but the University as a whole, just is not where I want to be.

NC A&T is full of stereotypical black people. Half of them were satisfied with a 2.0. I transferred out after my freshman year.

NC A&T is an okay school, but itQuite BrightPsychology
NC A&T is an okay school, but it is geared mostly for students who have been in North Carolina their whole lives. Regardless of their grades or initiative they receive all the financial aid and if you did not grow up with people who go there you will be lonely for a long time. Professors are hard to get in contact with. Many ignore your emails and give you the run around for recommendations and such. If you are awarded federal work study you will be mistreated by your "supervisor" and then by the head over work study if you report it. They do not try to give you financial aid and you will only frustrate yourself trying to convince them to give it to you. The faculty all have the worse attitudes.. besides the professors. They seem to only care about getting paid. The UNST professors think they can do whatever they want and I even had one try to take 10 points off my final grade because I walked out of class after she told the class if we did not want to review in class that day we could sign the roll and leave. Another UNST professor only showed up when he felt like it. A&T definitely lives up to the stereotypes of black colleges.
