3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial Aid Month was the most helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: A lot of improvements could be made.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: There is a party in echols gym atleast twice a semester. It is an okay party and most students attend. Majority of students who party attend off campus parties. There are a couple of parties in the suites. I do not believe the parties positively impact the students' academic progress but I do believe in the right situation that it does positively impact the students' social experience.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Spartan bucks provide a few places you can spend them at. The places are mostly fast food, a couple deliver.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It is not always that safe. The location is convenient. Cost of living off campus can be costly but sometimes end up saving you money. You have more freedom when staying off campus.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Apply for scholarships within the department you are studying, sometimes that is the only reliable way of getting a scholarship. Financial aid is posted too late. There is always a reason to go visit the financial aid office and it is never a pleasant visit. Things can be pretty unorganized. Workers there have bad attitudes. Too many frequent emails are sent out about not being in good standings. These can be a pain when the staff is not up to date with your status.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Depends on what is in the cafe, sometimes the taste is off. There is little variety majority of the time. A coffee place would be nice and something other than pizza hut. The small cafe can be good sometimes.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Dorms are okay. Best dorms are ones without community bathrooms. Social is okay, there should be more social gatherings. Cost of living on campus is okay. The convenience is really good.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Norfolk State University is an institution in which one has to be dedicated. Despite a reputation for being an "easy" school, the University has advisers and professors that are first-rate, with great knowledge and understanding of the subjects they teach, which makes students comfortable. Instructors develop relationships with students and continue to communicate with them outside of the classroom. Attending the University teaches students self-discipline and helps them mature.

From the moment students step on campus, they are able to gain a group of friends and experience a journey from student to adult. There are plenty of organizations and clubs for students to get involved in, from football and basketball to planning events and participating in student government. But all in all, it's up to the students to create an experience they'll never forget.
