Thriving Thursday-Alabama A&M University


Alabama A&M University- Normal, AL

Small, Historic, Student-Friendly, Community-Focused

Reflecting its heritage as a traditional 1890 land-grant institution, functions as a teaching, research, and public service institution, including extension. AAMU is a dynamic and progressive institution with a strong commitment to academic excellence. The serene, intimate campus is situated on “The Hill,” only a short distance from downtown Huntsville, the site of the school’s founding. (from their website)

One of the things that jumped out at me was the link to Noteworthy Achievements. As I stated earlier having worked in higher education the one question that almost always comes up is “What’s so great about your school?” I have to say I truly love this  feature AAMU! Another great feature is the degree offerings. WOW!  Check out the degree offering below.

Undergraduate Degrees

Graduate Degrees

Online Programs (Undergraduate only)

I personally feel the way to get the feel for a campus is to schedule a personal visit or attend an open house, but if for some reason you can’t visit the campus AAMU has  something that comes pretty close. On their website you view the campus via their 2014 Virtual Tour, again having worked on both small and large campuses I have to tip my had to the admission team of AAMU. This virtual tour makes you feel like you are on campus.

AAMU has 115  registered student organization and a diverse offering of NCAA athletics. So when you hear that an HBCU can’t offer you a true college life don’t believe them because AAMU has a lot to offer.
