ALABAMA A&M UNIVERSITY


HISTORY


   In 1875, a formerly enslaved person who was sold into slavery on these very same grounds, founded the Huntsville Normal School in Huntsville, Alabama, which would serve as an institution of higher learning. Expanding its focus over the years to encompass industrial, agricultural, and mechanical training, the school changed names several times and moved to Normal Alabama ultimately becoming Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical (A&M) University in 1969.

 

ACADEMIC MERIT


    In addition to having the oldest baccalaureate degree program in computer science in the state of Alabama, the university is home to a state-of-the-art Telecommunications Center and possesses nationally recognized centers of Excellence in Forestry and Ecology, Hydrology, Soil Climatology, and Remote Sensing. In fact, at night a mystical green glow from the campus highlights their five research greenhouses.

 

CAMPUS LIFE


   
Now a land-grant University supported by the State of Alabama and federal funds, the 2,000-acre campus is affectionately called "The Hill." Nestled in the Appalachian foothills, Alabama A&M has some 5,500 students, half of whom live on campus, representing both the United States and more than 60 countries.
