Hey..I'm lookin to possibly transfer to FAMU in the fall for my junior year as well. I've been doin alotta research on here and on other college review sites and I'll share a lil of what I've learned so far.. Campus Life: Looks like the school is a big party school made up mostly of students who are from the area.. Housing: Students seem to stress and plead for students not to live in the Paddyfoote residence hall..apparently they are very very small..and I read that most upperclass students live off-campus.. Academis: I kno they are supposed to have a really good business school..but I dont kno much about the crim program.. I hope I was able to help a lil..I was able to find out alotta bout all the schools I applied to on here and through the different search engines.. Did you already get accepted to FAMU?..I just completed my application package..are there any other schools u considering? and i just peeped u on myspace

That's cool..maybe we'll both end up at FAMU in the fall.. You better get on top of the applications tho..deadlines are comin up and its a b*tch tryin to keep everybody on point. Its really different when u go through transfer admissions cuz it seems like noone really cares.. This is my first time having to deal with hbcu administration, but im sure since u got some experience at CAU that u already kno how unorganized they can be.. And how is it down in Atlanta? I applied to Morehouse as well..and like 4 other schools too lol..

What's going on! I am also thinking about transferring to Famu in the fall. I was trying to decide if I wanted to go to Clark or Famu, but I always wanted to go to Famu, and plus I hear they have a good business school. I hear that the Palmetto apartments are the best ones to stay in because thats where most of the good parties be at. Do you guys know when the deadline is because I still have to send my application in? I can be reached on myspace as well. I can be found by my email [EMAIL="jerold_landa@hotmail.com"]jerold_landa@hotmail.com[/EMAIL].

I'm transferring from Prairie State College. It's a community college on the southside of Chicago. Where are you transferring from?

The Foote gets a bad name because the dorms are so small. Surprisingly, they're cleaner than the other dorms - at least, the girls' dorms are. I noticed that there's a bigger feel of "community" there as well, and they're closet to the Cafe. Plus, you can always pick up a game a spades, day or night. I can't say that Paddyfoote would've been my dorm of choice. Size aside, however, they're as good as any other. The on-campus apartments are a whole 'nother story, though. Unless you're just that hard up for money, save up some cash and get a real apartment.

What's up Jennifer! Could you tell me about the apartments on campus, I see you mentioned that it's better to get an off campus apartment, but I will be new at Famu and I want to stay on campus for the first year because I don't know anyone down there, and I think it will be a good way to meet people.
