FAMU offers internships over the summer and during the semesters. The alumni's are very active within the school, whether it be from holding a position as a professor, or coming back to help with the student activities.

The professors are very open-minded to having new students. They're constantly giving us advice and helping us better ourselves. They tell us to come by their office hours whenever they're available.
