My First Year Experience – My freshman year at Alcorn was amazing! I meet so many new individuals with different cultures. The campus is like home away from home. The faculty and staff push you and encourage you to do your best! They really want to see you succeed. The teachers will take out extra time to help you if you don't understand. There are many programs and scholarships at Alcorn that can assist you when you need guidance and financial assistance. The greek life really made the campus stand out. They have events that will allow students to come out of that nervous shell and experience fun. Other than the greek life, the college life is wonderful itself. You will make friends without a problem. Everyone is so friendly, and there is always a smile around. I am proud to say that i attend Alcorn State University and if you visit the campus, you would say the same!

The school is more interesting because we are in the middle of no where. We become a unity and have actual gathering and events to attend as an ASU Family. ALCORN is a well structured university with its many supporters such as Greeks, Alumini, Professors, Students, and neighbors of the Mississippi area work much wonders on the campus!

We, as Alcornites, support everything every Braves team does. It's always hype going to games, especially football. We are the back to back SWAC champions so obviously we are the best! We followed our team from Houston to Atlanta and will do it again every year! You'd see supporters from babies and future Alcornites to elders and alumni.
