5 College Junior

Greek Life: Says It All ! There are various greeks at my school & i absolutley love them! We always have parties, scool events, & many different celebrations that greeks organize & they always turn out really well ! I want to be a greak, I look upto the greeks & I respect those greeks who do the right thing! Anyone that I know who isnt a greek already has it in their mind which greek they want to join! I think the greek Life at Allen university is exceptionally well ! I love our Greeks !

Facilities: Life at Allen – Life at Allen University , is rather basic.! I mean yes new dorms were built & they are nice, but I just feel were paying for a good education & thats it! The staff is very friendly, The president is nice & well so are the students, but everything else isn't so good.! We have student activities from time to time & well they go good sometimes but other times it gets cancelled & that leaves the studenst with nothing to do! I will admite our campus is veru clean & the students do help keep it that way & our campus is but it gets the job done! I do like our gym & our library because they are both very spacious & seem to always have alot of activity going on in them! Overall Allen University is a nice school but some things can be improved !

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: All Rounders – Everybody gets a long its a small university so its one big family.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Mall Time – It has a lot of unique things to choose from. A very wide diversity of foods and food choices.

1 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are almost no sports at all at this school. We have a basketball team which is pretty decent and a cheerleading squad that needs a certified coach. Other than these two sports, there are none

2 College Sophomore

Academics: Allen University is a small privately owned A.M.E. religiously based school. It is one of the smallest H.B.C.U.'s in the United States. I came to this school to study in the field of social science. The teachers are fairly nice but seem less dedicated to their jobs. The financial aid and registration process can be a big mess. There seems to always be things wrong on everyone's financial student accounts and the some of the staff can be very rude and semi-helpful in the process. Two new dorms were built recently and they are beautiful and for the most part organized. The cafeteria is nice but the food could be better. They ofter serve food that isn't always cooked thoroughly which is why i don't eat there too often. One of the great things about the school is the one on one learning that you get from the teachers. They are always willing to help and give you that extra push you need. If you make failing grades, there is no one to blame but yourself because the teachers are always there for help. They also have many events during the school year to keep things interesting which are always a blast. Overall, the school is okay but needs work.

Overall Experience: It Was OK – My first was OK it wasn't what i thought was going to be.I meet nice people. The teacher was great they help you out with your work we needed it.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The Buses come on time . Since I didn't have a car my first time up there the buses was reliable

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have felt unsafe on campus. It is a small atmosphere that's right in the projects .You got to look out for your self because people want to have gun fight.

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is always good. Never to much of anything, its very constant.

1 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Not So Good – At Allen their is only one place that you are able to eat, the cafe. The cafe has 3 different stations. One has pizza, one with your "homemade food", and one with things like burgers, chicken tenders, fries. You have no option on the meal plan, its included with room and bored.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: PC LABS – THE COMPUTER LAB ARE PRETTY MUCH UP TO DATE WITH WINDOWS 7 MICROSOFT OFFICE 2010 AND SOME OF THE LABS HAVE BRAND NEW COMPUTERS. BUT THEY DO GET FULL AROUND MID TERMS AND FINALS.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Well by allen being a small school everything u need is right there. An easy to find some one to talk to theres people everywhere. there were hardly any fights but when there was they were big fights dorms against dorms.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Allen didnt have off campus housein just on house. but they did the year before i got there so i really dont no wat to say about that

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: Life an Allen – Well allen is kind of small. An right in the middle of the city no fences so anyone can walk or ride through the campus so anything can happen. Always have to b aware of wats goin on. Like i say anythin can happen on that campus.
