The police force is pretty okay at Alcorn State University. They are very cautious of the license plates and stickers because they are aware of intruders on campus. They are always on the alert of drug abuse in the dorms, such marijuana. They are always on the look out to give you a ticket for speeding on the shoe as well.

The parking is not as bad as it seems. It just the simple fact that you have to be there early enough to get a parking spot and a good one at the most if you do not intend on walking a far distance to get to your vehicle, especially on those bad alcorn weathery days.

Parking on campus is dreadful. There aren't enough parking spots by the brand new dormitories for all of the occupants to park. Or people end up parking so far from their dormitory, they might as well park their car where the class for the next day is. Students must get to the parking lot right after another class ends in order to get a parking spot before their next class.

I am an Accounting major at Alcorn State, and I would have to say that I am not too pleased with the education I am receiving.. for a lack of a better phrase. I feel as if the teachers are lazy and are just trying to get through the material that they are supposed to get through without trying to actually teach the material. However, I find that the further along in my courses I go, the more the teachers are trying to teach.

Although Alcorn is surrounded by plenty of beautiful land, it is literally in the middle of nowhere. Wal*Mart and all fast food places are about 30 minutes away, so it is hard fulfill your hunger needs late at night. The local community is usually very welcoming, but if you're not used to the "rural" areas, then it looks farely run down and not modern.

The off campus housing are not furnished, but the rent is cheap.

Only a shuttle bus at ASU that hardly every comes around. Most students who don't have cars walk to class.
College Sophomore 2013-01-27T04:39:30Z
Even though Alcorn is a historic black college, the school is very diverse. All different religions and races at ASU.
College Sophomore 2013-01-27T04:31:55Z
The printers at school be out of ink sometimes. The computer lab be crowed at time, which make it harder for students who need to use a computer that do not own one.

I am pleased with my major. I enjoy my program of study. I like getting to know the professors that I am going to work with most of my college career is a beneficial experience.

Getting in Agribusiness Management was an application process to the university and a declaration of my major. I entered college with the required college preparatory curriculum. There is not an additional application. If you are interested in a major and not sure of the admission process just ask questions.
College Junior 2013-01-22T19:18:05Z
I am totally pleased with my major, however some of the professor think all students come from the same background and with the same skill set.

You must provide basically you own transportation.

Certain sports get more publicity than others. The money makers on campus are of course football and men's basketball. I feel as though the women's basketball team on has a good turn out because the games usually take place before the men's games. Those are the sports that the alumni involvement is found in. Also, at times it seems as though those are the only sports the athletic department cares about either. As a minor sports athlete, I find this highly evident. Lesser sports are often times pushed aside.

The drug scene is pretty noticeable, especially on weekends. Many do it shamelessly in the parking lots despite it being dry campus. Yet, students can get away with it because it is not heavily enforced by campus police. It has become a norm.

There is not a huge need for owning a car on campus, but it depends on your major. Luckily, friends are generous in offering rides to those car-less. Parking permits are somewhat of a pain. You get them to prevent tickets, but they aren't always enforced. Depending on where you are trying to park it can get ridiculous. This is particularly the case in the cafeteria parking lot. It is not a true parking lot but rather an open gravel lot we park at. Some people do not know common courtesy and will block your car in.

Certain computer rooms have better technology than others. However, the printers in the library are often out of order, which is a huge inconvenience to some students. As for the wireless connection, it has it's good and bad days. Luckily it is accessible throughout the campus. However, during the week when everyone is on campus it can get sluggish. Additionally, during small storms you can bank on it going in and out.

The night life here is pretty much what you make it. There is a "club" on the campus where all of the parties are held. The parties are for everyone, regardless of age. There have only been 1-2 parties held that were for 21 or older. As for off-campus: that doesn't happen unless you have a car or know someone with a car. There are some places nearby (15-20 min away being the closest), but there is no public transit or cabs to take so parties off campus are not convenient for everyone. There are a lot of parties that take place, but my advice is to hang with friends.
College Sophomore 2013-01-15T18:01:56Z
The campus officials treat us as if we are college students, which means they do not make a fuss about partying. There is no curfew, but there are visitation hours set in place at the dormitories. The strictness comes in when the students take the partying back to the dorms. There are quiet hours set in place for each dormitory. Campus officials are also strict on academics. There is no partying or visitation during mid-terms and finals. The campus is practically shut down during those times. I think the campus is lenient enough to allow the students to be students and party and drink. But it is also strict enough to make students get serious about their academics.

Alcorn is an HBCU, so it was not shocking that the majority of the student body is African American. Though when I got here, I was surprised by how many other people of different nationality I saw. The school is prided on its diversity. There is the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion that specializes in celebrating the differences among the students, but also bringing us together as one. Also, even though some people may have the same skin color, there backgrounds are so different. I have been touched and inspired by some of the stories I have heard and learned from. Alcorn gets an A on diversity and inclusion because there have been specific measures taken to help the student body feel like a family regardless of color, politics, sexual orientation, etc.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
