4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dining options near Alcorn is really good. The cost may be high but most of the time we get a good amount of food for the price. We can also use our gold cards so the convenience is really good.

Parking: I think the employees need to park at the football stadium because they are stationed for eight hours and the students need to park on campus with closer access to the classrooms during each hour class changes.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: sometimes the computers are down but the staff reports them and they are repaired rapidly. The computer lab may not have the printer working at all times, but there is another option/building where items can be printed.

Weather: the weather to is always good to me and the sun is always shining even in the winter

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The police force is pretty okay at Alcorn State University. They are very cautious of the license plates and stickers because they are aware of intruders on campus. They are always on the alert of drug abuse in the dorms, such marijuana. They are always on the look out to give you a ticket for speeding on the shoe as well.

4 College Freshman

Parking: The parking is not as bad as it seems. It just the simple fact that you have to be there early enough to get a parking spot and a good one at the most if you do not intend on walking a far distance to get to your vehicle, especially on those bad alcorn weathery days.

1 College Junior

Parking: Parking on campus is dreadful. There aren't enough parking spots by the brand new dormitories for all of the occupants to park. Or people end up parking so far from their dormitory, they might as well park their car where the class for the next day is. Students must get to the parking lot right after another class ends in order to get a parking spot before their next class.

2 College Junior

Academics: I am an Accounting major at Alcorn State, and I would have to say that I am not too pleased with the education I am receiving.. for a lack of a better phrase. I feel as if the teachers are lazy and are just trying to get through the material that they are supposed to get through without trying to actually teach the material. However, I find that the further along in my courses I go, the more the teachers are trying to teach.

Local Atmosphere: Although Alcorn is surrounded by plenty of beautiful land, it is literally in the middle of nowhere. Wal*Mart and all fast food places are about 30 minutes away, so it is hard fulfill your hunger needs late at night. The local community is usually very welcoming, but if you're not used to the "rural" areas, then it looks farely run down and not modern.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing are not furnished, but the rent is cheap.

1 College Freshman

Transportation: Only a shuttle bus at ASU that hardly every comes around. Most students who don't have cars walk to class.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Even though Alcorn is a historic black college, the school is very diverse. All different religions and races at ASU.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The printers at school be out of ink sometimes. The computer lab be crowed at time, which make it harder for students who need to use a computer that do not own one.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I am pleased with my major. I enjoy my program of study. I like getting to know the professors that I am going to work with most of my college career is a beneficial experience.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Getting in Agribusiness Management was an application process to the university and a declaration of my major. I entered college with the required college preparatory curriculum. There is not an additional application. If you are interested in a major and not sure of the admission process just ask questions.

Majors: I am totally pleased with my major, however some of the professor think all students come from the same background and with the same skill set.

1 College Sophomore

Transportation: You must provide basically you own transportation.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Certain sports get more publicity than others. The money makers on campus are of course football and men's basketball. I feel as though the women's basketball team on has a good turn out because the games usually take place before the men's games. Those are the sports that the alumni involvement is found in. Also, at times it seems as though those are the only sports the athletic department cares about either. As a minor sports athlete, I find this highly evident. Lesser sports are often times pushed aside.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: The drug scene is pretty noticeable, especially on weekends. Many do it shamelessly in the parking lots despite it being dry campus. Yet, students can get away with it because it is not heavily enforced by campus police. It has become a norm.

3 College Senior

Parking: There is not a huge need for owning a car on campus, but it depends on your major. Luckily, friends are generous in offering rides to those car-less. Parking permits are somewhat of a pain. You get them to prevent tickets, but they aren't always enforced. Depending on where you are trying to park it can get ridiculous. This is particularly the case in the cafeteria parking lot. It is not a true parking lot but rather an open gravel lot we park at. Some people do not know common courtesy and will block your car in.

3 College Senior

Computers: Certain computer rooms have better technology than others. However, the printers in the library are often out of order, which is a huge inconvenience to some students. As for the wireless connection, it has it's good and bad days. Luckily it is accessible throughout the campus. However, during the week when everyone is on campus it can get sluggish. Additionally, during small storms you can bank on it going in and out.
