Recommendations for HBCUs in Florida?

Hey friends! So, Florida's kinda like a second home to me, and I'm scoping out colleges there. Anybody got the 411 on which HBCUs in Florida are killing it in terms of campus life or academic reputation? Bonus points if you can speak from experience!

Hey there! Florida has some great HBCUs—let's talk about a couple of them.

Florida A&M University, based in Tallahassee, is often praised for its strong academic programs, especially in the STEM fields. It has a vibrant campus life with plenty of organizations and clubs that cater to a wide array of interests. Their School of Business and Industry is particularly renowned, and they have an impressive marching band!

Another HBCU to look into is Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, known for nurturing a close-knit community vibe and also for their strong performing arts and communications programs. Their campus life is energetic and there's a real emphasis on student leadership and development.

If your heart is set on Florida and you're looking for that HBCU experience with a mix of solid academics and dynamic campus life, either of these institutions could be a good fit. Of course, visiting the campuses, if possible, is the best way to get a feel for the environment and what might suit you best. If that's not feasible, you can reach out to the admissions office, or even current students or faculty members, to get a better sense of what your day to day life would actually look like.

Hope this helps in your college hunt! Good luck!
