2 College Senior

Campus Quality: They are slowly improving dorms and other facilities on-campus. There is still room for improvement.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: It has a great Agriculture department and well-known for it's nursing department.

1 College Senior

Diversity: The diversity is minimum. Most students are African American.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process was very hectic. There were a lot of people trying to do the same thing as me so the lines were very long. Sometimes it took hours before you were even able to talk to someone to see if you were in the right place. There is a lot of different scholarships to choose from though. Payment for school is not a problem and the councelors do all they can to help when they get around to you.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Alcorn State University is like no other university. It has friendly people wherever you go and they are very helpful. The student union is open to the public and has everything you may need right there. There is a lot of school spirit on campus that keeps you motivated. The clubs and organizations always are trying to have something going on for the students so they will never be bored. They also keep the students updated on whats happening in the world and try to keep the students informed. There is always someone to talk to or study with on the yard and all of the alcornites keep the school fun and interesting.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is nothing to die for. There aren't any student apartments provided by the school. The only sources of living outside of the dorms are beat up trailors that are majority owned by people who work for the institution.

1 College Junior

Local Area: We are a college off in the middle of the woods at the end of a highway.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: The club is only ever open when fraternities or sororities are throwing parties or the football team wins a game. The house parties are nice though and they are free as well.

1 College Junior

Administration: The campus officials are extremely serious about their jobs. Professors conduct class by the book. The absentee percentage is in full effect; no student who does not attend class will pass. The campus police are strict as well. They actually tow cars parked in inappropriate areas.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Alcorn stay having parties throughout the week. Only thing bad about it is they play the same music everytime you go.

1 College Freshman

Local Area: The city is so country. There is really no attractions or etc here. If you want to go to the mall or something then you have to drive to vicksburg, jackson and Natchez.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather here can be very bi-polar. One day it wants to be hot and then the next it wants to be cold.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on Alcorn's campus. Everytime you turn around you see the campus police. Also Alcorn is a very friendly environment. I mean everybody keeps to themselves.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I give pattons a B because sometimes they can be slow at serving your food to you. Overall they served great food.

4 College Senior

Majors: I love my major, Elementary Education, because this is a passion that i have had for pratically all my life. I enjoy my classes and all that they have to offer. the workload can be pretty intense. This is because the instructors are preparing you for the Praxis Exam as well as the actual workforce

3 College Senior

Diversity: Alcorn is very diverse. From the individuals from different countries to those who are raised differently.

3 College Senior

Administration: the strictness at Alcorn varies. Sometimes things that are unauthorized can go unnoticed and sometimes it wont. It just depends on the personnel (staff, police, administration) and what type of day they are having

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: The new dorms are quite good, although there is very little public transportation to and from campus.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: They have good scholarships available for meritorious students from all spheres. I think there are oppportunities available for everyone.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: I believe it the personnel that handles financial aid worked diligently on issues of financial aid rather than other things alot of the hassle and dissatisfaction would be at a minimum.

5 College Senior

Campus Food: Campus dining is quite good. They usually have good meal choices available for everyone.

3 College Senior

Administration: The police force can be pretty strict about parking, even though there are not many parking slots available. First-time offenders get a hold on their account sometimes. I think if they add more parking spots, that would be better for everyone.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Nightlife is for students who are 21 or older. There are a few 18-and-older clubs, but I say skip the clubs. Your best bet is a school party here at Patton's which is a local restaurant.

3 College Senior

Weather: Weather is on the extreme ends over here. Sometimes it can be either too cold during winters,it might randomly start raining (inclement) and sometimes extraordinarily hot during summers. However, classes hardly ever get cancelled.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Alcorn has tourist attractions like Windsor Ruins and the small town of Rodney which has a chuch with a cannon ball in the side of the church. This town also sits directly on the MS River. It floods every time there is a hurricane anywhere close by.
