Why you should attend?

AAMU has steadily increased its offerings to cater to non-traditional college students, the multi-faceted pool of military students heavily among them. This has entailed tailoring programs in business, logistics and other areas, as well as offering courses on Redstone Arsenal. AAMU contributes directly to the defense of the country and has commissioned more than 1,000 officers through its ROTC. One example of the caliber of its military graduates is W.
