After a week of protests and making their voices heard to university officials, students are finally getting answers to a litany of questions gathered at a rally earlier this week.

"Just the state of their school, students are ready to jump ship now," said Kyle Washington, the rally organizer.

"The president did work to address the students’ inquiries, they did have many questions that they wanted to ask, and she made sure that the proper administrators and staff members did make themselves available," said LaNedra Carroll, Director of Public Affairs at FAMU.

In a 13-page document Bryant addressed student concerns on everything from administration shortfalls to financial aid, and even addressing the very existence of FAMU'S future, saying, "Even though some changes may be on the horizon, Florida A&M University will remain autonomous."

But some who've rallied all week long say the students deserved more.

"If she didn't have enough respect for the students to come down and deliver a state of the university fate, then you know that she doesn't care about the school," said Washington.

"Sometimes her schedule just does not permit face to face, she was not in the office at the time that the students were wanting to meet with her," said Carroll.

And as a new leader waits in the wings, students hope a change is coming on the hill.
