Faculty member acts unethically over concert

  The homecoming concert that struck a nerve with so many students is now history. As predicted, tickets sales indicate that the show was a flop. With Lawson Gym at only 35 percent capacity on the night of the concert (2,800 tickets sold and 8,000 seats), hopefully SGA learned its lesson […]

What the FAM?

CBS five inspire student reporters

After walking into Hotel Duval last Thursday, I was mesmerized by the ambiance and style of the hotel. I felt as if I wasn’t in Tallahassee. From the valet parking to everyone walking in looking important, it really felt like we were in a different atmosphere. As I was lifted […]

Alumni show financial support

There is no place like home, Florida A&M’s homecoming to be exact. On Saturday thousands of people traveled to the university’s campus to celebrate FAMU’s 2009 homecoming.
