4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms I stayed in were great, because they were new. The only downside was the lack of wifi access in the dorms and other places around campus.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are a large variety of characters at my school. Both males and females are exciting and full of personality.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug scene isn't very visible but is abundant among students.Some use marijuana or prescription pills.Peer pressure is prevalent due to the lack of activities.The campus police catch the more obvious situations,but could do a better job at eliminating more of this.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Alcorn provides a great deal of resources for their athletics programs on campus.Their are state of the art recreation areas,for basketball,football,and baseball players.Sports draws people from all corners of the world,and some how manages to bring us together during the seasons.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There various types of girls at Alcorn.There are city girls,emos,women from different parts of the world such as Spain,Russia,Africa,Asia,etc and of course of you have an abundance of southern belles.There are all different types of cultures there,but all seem to be somewhat embracing.

4 College Junior

Academics: It's challenging, daunting, but well worth it. After the first 3 weeks I had doubts that I had chosen correctly but after that, everything seemed to get better. I recommend staying the course for one month before making any decision to quit

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I took a night class last semester. Everyone I saw in dark parking lots were friendly, non theatening. SAFE SAFE

5 College Freshman

Majors: Getting into the nursing program relatively easy. I did not face any challenges. With a great GPA and with a positive mindset you are good to go. There was not any abnormal or special applications to complete. The greatest advise I can give is maintain a good GPA throughout high school and college and you will be fine.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I am very content with my program. I would absolutely do it over again. The feeling is just wonderful and heart-felt. My career goals include becoming a registered nurse and then proceeding to become an nurse anesthesist. I have no concerns on finding my job in the medical field. By the grace of God I will be blessed with the job.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Considering I have never had an intership before, I believe an internship is like monitoring a professional on the job you desire to have. I believe its sort of like shadowing. Also considering my major as nursing, it is encouraged in the medical field. Completing an internship and shadowing is very time consuming, but it teaches you responsibility and it gets you ready for you desired job. It is sort of volunteering your time to benifit your future because you will not get paid until you obtain the real job. As I have mentioned, I have not had an internship before, but I do plan to have one in the near future because I would like to be exposed to medical field and have hands-on experience to finalize whether I want nursing to be my life-long career. I have no concerns about finding an intership. Considering I am just a freshman, I have not held any professional training positions yet.

1 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Most girls received the grade D, from not attending class, most guys as well

5 College Senior

Academics: A plus is that student that excell in all that her or she do, this grade exemplify the greatest of all people and can and will get the students opportunities.

1 College Junior

Parking: there isn't enough parking at school and people are constantly fined for parking in places other than parking spaces

3 College Junior

Athletics: the athletic department is in a transitioning stage in which they are getting new coaches and players to turn it into a winning program

1 College Junior

Scholarships: the government issues me the full amount of financial aid but the school took 1000 away from that amount did not fully explain why this was so. then most of my aid was put on a side of my card that I can only use in limited locations

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Lorman Mississippi is a very rural area. Not a lot of rent houses or apartments are available.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Our campus is cozy. It has a small town feeling and our nursing class is diverse yet close knit. We all strive for our best, and do not let competition get in the way of helping each other be the best we can be.

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Our school of nursing is very structured. We have a definite dress code and code of conduct. We must maintain a C average or better, we must complete all of our clinicals on time. I see our campus police patrolling daily. The Campus is accessible and safe.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Overall, Alcorn is very diverse and celebrate's its diversity in many different ways. I applied for a diversity grant last semester, but did not receive one. I will apply again when they open applications.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: everything is pretty much free and you can do what you want but they take where you park and parking decals very serious and its like parking decals go up every week and if you don't have one then you can constantly get a ticket if you come on campus without one.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: i gave that grade because everyone is friendly no matter what type of person they are and that means alot to me

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics are great if you get the right teachers. The best place to study is in the library.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Student life on campus could be a little better. I think we could use more things to do in our student union.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: There is really nothing that set us apart from other schools but that we are in the woods and there's not really to much to do, but I do love my shcool.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I relatively safe on campus because if something happens the campus police is there. They are there if there are big crowds but not everyday basis. They do there job, but they could be a little better on crime and not irrelevant things like parking or decals.
