Campus Quality: Athletic centers are great. The library has many features and is absolutely wonderful. There are currently many renovations and new building openings, slowly making the campus more modern. Activity hour in the student center is very lively, and it is fun to watch the greeks stroll. Echols parties are legendary and are often very fun.

Local Area: I have had a great time going around the area, although locals tell me there is much more to be seen.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I have not had much luck, but I have plenty of friends who have.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Due to a disability I have, I find myself having to go to the medical often quite often and I never have had a bad experience.

They are also very involved with STDs on campus and are adamant with HIV and STD testing and give out condoms, pamphlets and advice.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The campus is not strict in an over-bearing way.

3 College Freshman

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.
