Florida A & M
« on: November 20, 2012, 08:41:59 pm »

Historically black college in Tallahassee.  8500 enrollment, 60% female. member of the MEAC conference.  FCS school in football. 

anybody been on their campus?  I drove through it one time when in Tallahassee. This is where the saying "other side of the tracks" came from.  Literally, on one side of the rr tracks sits FAMU, on the other Florida St.  You drive through FSU and everything is brick.  Just a gorgeous campus.  You have to look hard at the football stadium to know that is what it is. 

and then you cross the tracks.

Metal buildings everywhere. Even the grass is not as green. Their football stadium is 25500 metal bleachers.

Haves vs. Don't Have as Much.  famu tuition is 5200 instate.  fsu is 5800.   I was stunned at the differences sitting side by side.  both are nearly the same age.  both are state universities.  fsu 22000 students.  famu 8500.

That is usaully the trend with many state funded HBCU's, due to endowment. However, believe it or not, FAMU has a rich tradition.

Not excusing it by any means, but hazing occurs across the country. It's just not getting reported or caught.
