5 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks are the life of the campus.

5 College Junior

Majors: They always send students on interships and aboard

5 College Junior

Majors: Getting into m program was very easy.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are okay. The towers are great for freshmen to meet. The best dorms are the honor dorm mid rise and the upperclassmen dorm the suites.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: I hate the hours of operation when it comes to meal plans.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: We don't really have on campus parties but when we do they are fun.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus is safe because of all of the restrictions they have.

4 College Junior

Academics: Norfolk state has great academics. from computer science to fine arts its a great school for outgoing individuals.

5 College Junior

Academics: My major is the best major to be apart of because we are full of people who want to help.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Norfolk State is a top HBCU so you will see a lot of African Americans, but not all African Americans are the same.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: If you are going to college to party and have people in your room whenever you want norfolk state is not the place for you. It is not only hard to drive unto the campus but we have set visitation hours where people can come to your room and each visitor is signed in and its a limited amount you can have.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The teachers at norfolk state are amazing. The class size are small depending on how popular your major is. I have loved all of the professors that I have had.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: If you graduate from Norfolk State you are graduating with a job.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining is okay but its not like its a food place on every corner.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I think the Greek life at school is okay. Some people change for the worse which causes a bad look on the sorority or fraternity. Although it is not usually the sorority and is the person them self, many non-Greeks do not look at it that way. But, usually people change for the better or don't change at all. I am unsure if there is Greek housing on campus.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: I am not much of a party person.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I enjoy staying on campus because it keeps me wanting to be active in organizations on campus. When I stayed off campus I did not participate in as many organizations. I wish the dorms were more luxurious. I do not agree with having to spend like $3,000 to live on campus. Also, I feel like everyone should have the same meal plan instead of having 3 plans because everyone should have the chance to eat every meal offered. I enjoy going to the many events on campus. A light rail is available behind the far ends of the campus which can take us to the mall and a shopping center with Walmart. We students love that we have cheap transportation nearby.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There are more ethnicities than I thought there would be before I started school at Norfolk State. But I think there could be more students of other ethnicities other than African-American.

3 College Senior

Majors: Continue on the set academic plans created by counselor and everything should go as planned.

3 College Senior

Majors: I am still adjusting to the curriculum and facility.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The area of the school had a high crime rate.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Many great athletes and great supporters.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Norfolk State University is an institution in which one has to be dedicated. Despite a reputation for being an "easy" school, the University has advisers and professors that are first-rate, with great knowledge and understanding of the subjects they teach, which makes students comfortable. Instructors develop relationships with students and continue to communicate with them outside of the classroom. Attending the University teaches students self-discipline and helps them mature.

From the moment students step on campus, they are able to gain a group of friends and experience a journey from student to adult. There are plenty of organizations and clubs for students to get involved in, from football and basketball to planning events and participating in student government. But all in all, it's up to the students to create an experience they'll never forget.
