Campus dining is quite good. They usually have good meal choices available for everyone.

The police force can be pretty strict about parking, even though there are not many parking slots available. First-time offenders get a hold on their account sometimes. I think if they add more parking spots, that would be better for everyone.

Nightlife is for students who are 21 or older. There are a few 18-and-older clubs, but I say skip the clubs. Your best bet is a school party here at Patton's which is a local restaurant.

Weather is on the extreme ends over here. Sometimes it can be either too cold during winters,it might randomly start raining (inclement) and sometimes extraordinarily hot during summers. However, classes hardly ever get cancelled.

Alcorn has tourist attractions like Windsor Ruins and the small town of Rodney which has a chuch with a cannon ball in the side of the church. This town also sits directly on the MS River. It floods every time there is a hurricane anywhere close by.

Everybody loves Chicken Wednesdays and Fish Fridays!!

Transportation is ok. You can get to class by shuttle bus or by hitching a ride with other students on campus with a car. The campus is walker friendly and you get your daily exercise by walking to class.

Honors Dorms Are the Best – The new dorms aren't as spacious, quiet, and sanitized as the new dorms. Living in the Honor's Dorms are much better than any of the other dorms on campus because they are much more convienient and closer to the classes.

Many to choose from and it depends on your "major"

Not Fun for Boring People – Coming from the big city is a big transition coming to Lorman, MS. There isn't much around here to do as far as attractions and sights, but for those of us who get crazy high on life, it is a paradise. You are all but forced to study and make friends unless you drive miles from campus. Suggestion for anyone who can't make fun times happen, you are going to have a hard time making the transition.

The food is very pleasant and the meals are average for a campus. You do get surprised every once in a while with a decent meal. The options are open and usually include pizza, hamburgers, fries, entree and other desserts. Not a bad deal at all but compared to a home cooked meal it's average. There is always Pizza Hut, Sub Connection or Starbucks

Greeks Are Normal Students Too – Greeks do throw parties and have other social events throughout the school year but they accommodate all other students. It does not matter if you're in a frat or sorority because there isn't any discrimination. Definitely not like the television shows depict!

Not That Diverse – There are not many diverse students expect for those that play sports. The majority is black but everyone is very welcoming and do not hesitate to assist others, whether its academic or not. There are hardly any challenges to overcome and acceptance is very easy. I haven't met any racial persons. Very religious and its a 60/40 boy to girl

Nothing to Do – Lorman, Mississippi, is a small town but the atmosphere is very family oriented. Lorman, however, does not have much area attractions, activities, events and shopping malls. The weekends are spent mainly on campus unless you have a car to go home or go out to the nearest recreation areas. The bonus is that you won't spend a lot of money!

Health & Safety:
Pretty Safe – I feel safe at Alcorn. Security has a somewhat high presence and always available if you need them. You do the crime, you gotta do the time. So don't park in no parking zones!!
College Senior 2012-08-24T02:46:24Z
Parking is ok. Parking at the cafeteria can be montrous if you get there late. Parking at the dormitory is pretty descent if you get there before 8:00 p.m.

Its Amazing – This program is excellent it challenges you to be all that you can be. There is always a special presentation that keeps you interest and the teachers are great also.
College Senior 2012-08-19T23:12:07Z
Its a Task – Basic majors are very easy to get into. Nursing is not so easy, guess because it is teaching you to care for someones life.
College Senior 2012-08-19T23:09:05Z
Not to Many! Theres not to many options provided on this campus. If your not eating in the Cafeteria then theres only 2 more options...so once you are kind of tired of it you really have to get creative on your own.

Behind the Scenes Policing – As a criminal justice major, I will have an opportunity to shadow a police officer in my home town. This intership is unpaid but I will recieve college credit and on the job training if I decide to become a police officer. My responsilibities are to observe the Police Officer and at the end develop a portfolio to tell about my experience.

New dorms are great - almost like an apartment. Refrigerator and microwave oven is provided. I feel very safe in these buildings compared to other dorms on campus.
College Senior 2012-08-16T23:29:08Z
If you live on campus you always have the option of the shuttle. More convenient at times if you don't have any classes at the Whitney athletic facility.
College Junior 2012-08-02T14:31:45Z
They Don't Care – The kids on this campus does anythinng they want as far as drugs.. Well they inforce the rules for the dorms but they still stand outside doing it and I feel it shoudn't be alound on the campus period.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
