    Famu has went from bad to worse, This school seems to be a SHAM not a shame but a sham , a joke , a con , the marching 100 stealing things, the adminstration falling apart , makes me wonder if anyone with a degree from there actually earned it and can actually call themselves graduates with a valid education. I'm sure all the alumni are shivering in their shoes from all this and if their not then they have hidden in shame. I'd be hiding my diploma if it had famu written on it.
