3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Rate of Guys and Girls – The rate of the guys and girls are different ways. Some of them are nice, smart, intelligent, ignorant, etc. Most of the guys on the campus are active such as playing sports and student leaders. Most of the girls on campus are messy and gossipy. At the same time, some of the guys and girls are nice looking, well-mannered, respectful, but yet, some are not as cool as you think.

Campus Housing: Use of Housing – Housing on the campus has changed a whole lot because the campus has torn down old dorms and rebuild four new dorms labeled them A-D, and named the village Medgar Wiley Evers Heritage Village. The rooms are bigger, have more space, and still have to share the bathroom. The dorms looked so much better than the old ones we had before.

5 College Senior

Academics: Use of Major – Sociology has been successful major at my school because i had professore who has been at the campus between 40 and 50 years, and she is also the chairperson for our department, department of social sciences. we have other majors and clubs such as political science, history, social work, and criminal justice. the other majors also have clubs, but sociology is joined with social work as a club. the whole department is very active by terms of activities, going out places, and recently held a department banquet where the advisors recognized their graudating seniors for their contributions.

Campus Housing: Dorm Life – Housing at Alcorn State University was great for me. The Female Honors Dorm was relatively comfortable despite of the loud disruptions that would occur at night, cold air at night, and slamming of the doors. Troubles would set in with suitmates and chaos ensues,but other than that it would be great.The New Dorms that was recently built provides some students with higher living, but its cost is too much for someone like me and finance coverage.

Facilities: Helping Out – The faculty and staff here are always willing to help their students. Whether is it academically or campus life, there is always someone to help solve and accommodate these problems. Teachers are available to help assist with students along with tutors. Resident Directors make sure that campus life is comfortable and like a second home.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Alcorn's Offer to Students – As of now, Alcorn State is a university that offers vast amounts of opportunities regardless of one's major. It provides excellent programs from nursing all the way to agricultural. The faculty helps their students to the best of their ability to make sure that every aspect of their college life runs smoothly. Internships are abundant as well as opportunistic programs that would help benefit that student's experience. Campus life is amazing. It provides the sensual security while you are there to make sure that one's college experience is unforgettable.

Transportation: The shuttle bus takes us to classes it should run a little faster and you can sign up for free for the bus to take you to walmart and the mall or whatever is in surrounding area

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Very Popular and Visible – quiet alot of people drink and smoke weed because the campus is isolated and or boring to people so this is what they turn to.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Personal Safety – I would say that my personal safety here is ok. I have a huge concern about my personal space and getting justice for things that cannot be proven.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: The diversity on Alcorn State campus is big. Even though Alcorn is a HBCU we have a variety of races and religion. From Russians,Puerto Ricans, to Hawaiians we have them all we don't discriminate, and we are all friendly.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Wireless access is available, printing is free, and lots of resources in the library. There is always someone available who can help with your problems.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It Is Just Fine. I don't live on campus, but the time that I do spend on campus, I feel safe.

1 College Sophomore

Facilities: Campus Life – This is not the best school but overall I love attending this school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Best Places – The best places to eat on campus are Starbucks, Pizza Hut, and Wingo's. These places make the campus somewhat better because students have a choice rather than having to succumb to eating in the dining hall.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Mass Communication Department – Overall I think that this department does not receive as much funding as it deserves. The students that do major in Mass Communications leave Alcorn with a vast knowledge of the radio and media industries and they actually learn everything that they need in this field. I also think that the professors do not receive credit for the hard work that they input into the students.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Needs Serious Attention – Parking for students on campus is extremely unacceptable. You have to make sure you are one of the first ones trying to find an appropriate parking space or you will be highly disappointed!

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Keeps You Entertained – There isn't much to do on campus and the facilities that are provided should have more convenient hours for student use!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As Safe as Can Be – Alcorn's Campus Security does a pretty good job of responding to emergency situations, but of course there is always room for improvement!

5 College Freshman

Majors: Computer Science – Probably the best major on campus, we have a special system that let's us go to any graduate school, and our chairperson is the best! He always has time for his students

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It Is Far from Everything – Housing off campus is not really worth the distance. The school is out in the country and not near too many residences.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone Is the Same. People at Alcorn act and dress mostly the same . It's like we are one big family.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Alcorn-HISTORICALLY BLACK UNIVERSITY – It is a historically black university. The students have a family bond with one another. There is a sense of closeness at Alcorn. We are one of the leading schools as far as academics. Campus life is ok.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather doesn't really affect my campus experience, because I am always able to get around. The weather doesn't turn out too bad. When its nice outside everyone hangs outside.

Health & Safety: The safety and security on Alcorn campus is somewhat secured. There have not been any campus crimes, and incidents that have taken place since I have been attending. I feel very safe when Im at the school.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: There are strict rules and regulations that the campus has, but there are also students who will try to do anything to get around those rules. The strictness on campus doesn't affect our social lives as much, but there are a couple of things that we, as students, believe we deserve a little more freedom on certain subject matters.
