I am a african american aswell a majority of students that atennd this university. First off let me began by saying at first my perception of alabama a&m was good. I'd say about 2 weeks later I realized i had made a terrible mistake. To start I walked into a unprepared dorm that was full of chairs to the point I couldnt move in my stuff. I had to ask for someone to help remove the chairs and after that I began moving in. The room itself was dirty and had broken tile chips scattered across the floor. Cobwebs were still hanging from the celing. Dirt and grime still covered desks and other furniture. So before i could finish moving in I had to clean up a mess that was supposed to be handled. After this i finally got setttled in and motioned to turn on my ac on this hot summer day. As soon I turned the outdated ac unit on it began smoking. I alerted an ra(resident assistant) and was told it would be checked on. Two weeks later without ac in the hottest point of summer they finally came in check on it. It took another two weeks and a letter to the head of dorms to get it installed. In my room that day I went to hookup my speakers only to realize there was only one outlet in the whole room! A surge protecter had to be purchased and after plugging in my electronics i encountured a series of short circuts. How could i forget to metion the first day? Well the first day i toured the campus and got my id card and other neccesary items. Later that night me and a couple friends went to the campus apartments(normal hills) and after being there for about an hour gunshots let off. From a 1st person viewing experience I witnessed a student shoot his self in the leg. The police came and nothing happened. The police at a&m typically cover incidents like this up and watch fights before helping anyone. After this I went back to the dorms to chill outside. After being outside for an hour with a group of friends four gunshots let off. Take it this is all happening on the first day! This time nothing happened; no police nothing! Many other events suchs as a student getting thrown out the 4th floor window. A student getting sent to the hospital after getting jumped. Another student getting jumped in the cafeteria. Numerous break ins to several people I know. If you live on campus your personal items are not safe! Thier is absolutely no campus life on alabama a&m campus. Their are no gamerooms or areas for students to hang out.All the students at alabama a&m do is smoke weed, drink and talk. This is no exaggeration I've seen it countless times and fell victim to the utter boredom of alabama a&m. The food is a step above your highschool cafteria. Of course you have pizza and hamburgers but would you like to eat them everyday? The cafe menu never rotates; not even for the second semester. The cafeteria often runs out of specific drinks and are slow at serving. Recently we just got our first alternative to the cafe.Its called the greasy spoon 2 which is basically food from the cafe prepared with seasoning. So if your expecting a fastfood resturaunt on campus its not here! Overall the alabama a&m experience has been anything but rewarding. Its been a complete waste of my time and did I mention were in danger of losing our accredidation.

sidenotes: The first time we all lost visitaion was because someone spread fecies all over the walls of one building. The second time the girls lost it and was result of someone peeing in the elevator. The bathrooms are highly unsanitary and are filled with filth such as: hair,soap,leftover underwear,soap boxes,mildew and other comtaminants. Bottom line the janitors dont clean and you can expect halls riddled with trash in any place imaginable.(People are to lazy and often leave trash by doors or hide it behind hallways doors.)

Sincerely Disatisfied Alabama A&M School Student.

commentYou consider yourself quite bright? You can't even write a decent English sentence! There is no such thing as "his self"; it's himself.
