Scholarships: Before being enrolled in classes as a freshman in the fall of 2013, I had to deal with constant back and forth bickering with financial aid because they didn't clear my scholarships, grants, and loans till the last minute. I almost couldn't attend.

Off-Campus Dining: Fast Food restaurants are cool, but sometimes you just want to dine with your Spartan Card.

Campus Housing: Living on campus to me is great if you have a car or some sort of transportation to attend off campus activities.

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.
