Health & Safety:
The campus is not a dangerous campus. There have been a few incidents (fights), but, the campus is safe. I haven't felt unsafe on the campus. The only time I think people feel unsafe is when walking by themselves at night, and this can be prevented by walking with other people. But overall, the campus is comfortable and safe.

Alcorn State has the best greenery anyone can ever imagine on a college campus!! There is no favorite when it comes to my school's campus!! Words can't explain the excitement you feel when living on this wonderful reservation! I leave you with the words of Dorothy from Wizard of Oz, "There's no place like home," and indeed Alcorn is a home away from home!!

Due to the fact that I'm non-Greek, I'm peeping from the outside on in!! Here on the yard, the Greeks seems as if they are family!! It's no competition and each organization shows respect towards another! Greek life doesn't affect social atmosphere here, why because they converse with everyone! Greeks at Alcorn State don't judge another person based upon their status, Greek or not they still treat you the same. Housing for Greeks are not available on campus, therefore each organization has it's on tree to represent their brother/sisterhood!

I received an amazing amount of financial aid and scholarships. Getting a hold of individuals in the financial aid office via telephone or walk in can sometimes prove to be difficult however once the process is done I received all the financial aid necessary.

The dorms I stayed in were great, because they were new. The only downside was the lack of wifi access in the dorms and other places around campus.

The drug scene isn't very visible but is abundant among students.Some use marijuana or prescription pills.Peer pressure is prevalent due to the lack of activities.The campus police catch the more obvious situations,but could do a better job at eliminating more of this.

It's challenging, daunting, but well worth it. After the first 3 weeks I had doubts that I had chosen correctly but after that, everything seemed to get better. I recommend staying the course for one month before making any decision to quit

Getting into the nursing program relatively easy. I did not face any challenges. With a great GPA and with a positive mindset you are good to go. There was not any abnormal or special applications to complete. The greatest advise I can give is maintain a good GPA throughout high school and college and you will be fine.

I am very content with my program. I would absolutely do it over again. The feeling is just wonderful and heart-felt. My career goals include becoming a registered nurse and then proceeding to become an nurse anesthesist. I have no concerns on finding my job in the medical field. By the grace of God I will be blessed with the job.

Considering I have never had an intership before, I believe an internship is like monitoring a professional on the job you desire to have. I believe its sort of like shadowing. Also considering my major as nursing, it is encouraged in the medical field. Completing an internship and shadowing is very time consuming, but it teaches you responsibility and it gets you ready for you desired job. It is sort of volunteering your time to benifit your future because you will not get paid until you obtain the real job. As I have mentioned, I have not had an internship before, but I do plan to have one in the near future because I would like to be exposed to medical field and have hands-on experience to finalize whether I want nursing to be my life-long career. I have no concerns about finding an intership. Considering I am just a freshman, I have not held any professional training positions yet.

Lorman Mississippi is a very rural area. Not a lot of rent houses or apartments are available.

Our campus is cozy. It has a small town feeling and our nursing class is diverse yet close knit. We all strive for our best, and do not let competition get in the way of helping each other be the best we can be.
College Senior 2012-10-29T01:31:11Z
Our school of nursing is very structured. We have a definite dress code and code of conduct. We must maintain a C average or better, we must complete all of our clinicals on time. I see our campus police patrolling daily. The Campus is accessible and safe.

Overall, Alcorn is very diverse and celebrate's its diversity in many different ways. I applied for a diversity grant last semester, but did not receive one. I will apply again when they open applications.

everything is pretty much free and you can do what you want but they take where you park and parking decals very serious and its like parking decals go up every week and if you don't have one then you can constantly get a ticket if you come on campus without one.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
