State of the Black Student

There is a big honor for Florida A&M University. The school is leading the first ever "state of the black student summit" beating out several other historically black universities across the country.

Nearly 1,000 students took advantage of this opportunity to listen and communicate with a distinguished panel of speakers on a broad range of topics, all aimed at empowering students.

Student body leaders say this was there way of saying we care and show their commitment to the students.

Roman Alexander, FAMU student body president, says, "A lot of hard work has been put into this and the deeds of those to ensure the best interest of the student body has come to fruition and we're really excited about that."

There are other similar forums being planned at schools across the country, but FAMU will hold the honor as being the first.

This will be an annual event.
