3 College Junior

Local Area: Secluded Area – Alcorn is definitely a transition. If a student is used to a big city with lots to do then they will have a lot of adapting to do when attending Alcorn. It is at least 15 minutes from the small local cities and at least 45 minutes away from bigger cities. Fun things still happen on campus though.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drugs Are Not a Worry – On Alcorn's campus, drugs aren't really a big issue. Drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes are pretty much dominant. I haven't heard any report of a drug search having positive results of finding illegal substances.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Why Not Choose Alcorn. Alcorn's Financial Aid process is somewhat fair. My schooling is fully paid for, and I haven't really had any major issues with the process. Except they take a lot of money

Overall Experience: Why Not Choose Alcorn. When I first started attending Alcorn State Univeristy I had multiple issues. I had issue concerning my paper work, crosscountry and track, and the coaching. I came to Alcorn State University, because I was offered a scholarship.But, during the process at Alcorn State Univeristy, I learned that it was not a the school for me. I did not like the way the coaches handled things, or the type of treat ment I got there. I felt out of place at Alcorn and that there was something so much better for me at another school. If I could choose a school all over again, it definantly would not be Alcorn State University. I would have taken a different path, when going about getting my education.

Health & Safety: Safety on Campus – The safety on the campus is very poor because we do not have enough police officers on the campus, and most of them are not around when you need them. They do have rules for the campus, but the officers do not enforce them well enough. There are speed bumps on the campus, and most people try to dodge them to keep from going through them, and i reported it to the assistant to the president to deliver to him because i almost got hit several times. i made a request for traffic lights, but it would cost the school so much money. Saftey has been one the main issues on our campus

Academics: Acedemics Offered at School – The school has a great acedemic program, but i wish they would provide more graduate programs, created a doctorate programs, and start an online degree. Most of the professors come to class and do their jobs, but some just lay back at home.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Rate of Guys and Girls – The rate of the guys and girls are different ways. Some of them are nice, smart, intelligent, ignorant, etc. Most of the guys on the campus are active such as playing sports and student leaders. Most of the girls on campus are messy and gossipy. At the same time, some of the guys and girls are nice looking, well-mannered, respectful, but yet, some are not as cool as you think.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Use of Housing – Housing on the campus has changed a whole lot because the campus has torn down old dorms and rebuild four new dorms labeled them A-D, and named the village Medgar Wiley Evers Heritage Village. The rooms are bigger, have more space, and still have to share the bathroom. The dorms looked so much better than the old ones we had before.

5 College Senior

Academics: Use of Major – Sociology has been successful major at my school because i had professore who has been at the campus between 40 and 50 years, and she is also the chairperson for our department, department of social sciences. we have other majors and clubs such as political science, history, social work, and criminal justice. the other majors also have clubs, but sociology is joined with social work as a club. the whole department is very active by terms of activities, going out places, and recently held a department banquet where the advisors recognized their graudating seniors for their contributions.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorm Life – Housing at Alcorn State University was great for me. The Female Honors Dorm was relatively comfortable despite of the loud disruptions that would occur at night, cold air at night, and slamming of the doors. Troubles would set in with suitmates and chaos ensues,but other than that it would be great.The New Dorms that was recently built provides some students with higher living, but its cost is too much for someone like me and finance coverage.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Helping Out – The faculty and staff here are always willing to help their students. Whether is it academically or campus life, there is always someone to help solve and accommodate these problems. Teachers are available to help assist with students along with tutors. Resident Directors make sure that campus life is comfortable and like a second home.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Alcorn's Offer to Students – As of now, Alcorn State is a university that offers vast amounts of opportunities regardless of one's major. It provides excellent programs from nursing all the way to agricultural. The faculty helps their students to the best of their ability to make sure that every aspect of their college life runs smoothly. Internships are abundant as well as opportunistic programs that would help benefit that student's experience. Campus life is amazing. It provides the sensual security while you are there to make sure that one's college experience is unforgettable.

Transportation: The shuttle bus takes us to classes it should run a little faster and you can sign up for free for the bus to take you to walmart and the mall or whatever is in surrounding area

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Very Popular and Visible – quiet alot of people drink and smoke weed because the campus is isolated and or boring to people so this is what they turn to.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Personal Safety – I would say that my personal safety here is ok. I have a huge concern about my personal space and getting justice for things that cannot be proven.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: The diversity on Alcorn State campus is big. Even though Alcorn is a HBCU we have a variety of races and religion. From Russians,Puerto Ricans, to Hawaiians we have them all we don't discriminate, and we are all friendly.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Wireless access is available, printing is free, and lots of resources in the library. There is always someone available who can help with your problems.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It Is Just Fine. I don't live on campus, but the time that I do spend on campus, I feel safe.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Campus Life – This is not the best school but overall I love attending this school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Best Places – The best places to eat on campus are Starbucks, Pizza Hut, and Wingo's. These places make the campus somewhat better because students have a choice rather than having to succumb to eating in the dining hall.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Mass Communication Department – Overall I think that this department does not receive as much funding as it deserves. The students that do major in Mass Communications leave Alcorn with a vast knowledge of the radio and media industries and they actually learn everything that they need in this field. I also think that the professors do not receive credit for the hard work that they input into the students.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Needs Serious Attention – Parking for students on campus is extremely unacceptable. You have to make sure you are one of the first ones trying to find an appropriate parking space or you will be highly disappointed!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Keeps You Entertained – There isn't much to do on campus and the facilities that are provided should have more convenient hours for student use!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As Safe as Can Be – Alcorn's Campus Security does a pretty good job of responding to emergency situations, but of course there is always room for improvement!

5 College Freshman

Majors: Computer Science – Probably the best major on campus, we have a special system that let's us go to any graduate school, and our chairperson is the best! He always has time for his students
