I visited Alcorn State University for High School Day. I had a great experience there. The students and staff was very helpful and they had great attitudes. I enjoyed the environment.

This school is overall a great school. Improvements can be made in certain departments, such as the financial aid department.

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!
