Do you like learning but with space? I'm talking acres students! Well then Alcorn is the college for you. Learning doesn't stop in the classrooms, it floats like a butterfly on campus. Everything is essential. Students, professors, and the staff work together to help recreate everyone's obstacles, so that they may have a broader path to succeed.

I really love this school. Even though many people are quick to say "Alcorn is small and it's in the middle of nowhere, how could you possibly learn anything" I strongly disagree. if you are a person who loves small class rooms, down to earth students, and fun weekends this is really the place for you. The only downfall that I would say that Alcorn has is the Financial aid department because they are extremelyyyy slow!

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!
