Prairie View is sooooo amazing. If you are a future panther my word of advice would be, do not do anything last minute (Housing, Finacial aid, ect...), because they can be a little slow. In the end you get to gain a great HBCU experience. If u come to suceed u will succeed. Financial aid is a disaster but never give up. U need a lot of patients when attending pv else u might just get frustrated and give up. Overall a lovely campus with everything close except the college of business and music ie horbart. Nearest groceries store is in hampstead/Waller.
