It is very rich in history. It has an outstanding support system within the faculty. Student life is fun and teaches you life long lessons.
Tips for prospective students
Work hard in the class room so you can play hard outside the classroom. Don't always expect the faculty members to have all the answers, sometimes you have to help yourself. Take time to visit your professors in their office, they are there to help you. Most of all remember you determine your experience so join organizations and clubs on campus and get involved with campus life. It's a great time to be a Hornet!
Academic Rigor
When you think of college courses you might think of very large classes with a boring professor. At our school most classes are very interactive. They're smaller than most schools so it's easier to be 1 on 1 with the professor. The courses can be hard but the professors make time to help you so failure is not an option.
Dorm Life
Living on campus is the peek to enjoying your college experience. Dorm life on ASU's campus can be very rewarding. You will always know about all student activities because everything will be posted in the residence halls. Even though you might have to share a bathroom with 3 or more other people, most of the dorms are in sweet style so it can be very personal.
Food and Dining
Having a meal plan on campus can come in handy. The food is very fulfilling on most of the time. This is college, so the food won't be as good as your mothers but you will enjoy the variety.
What to do for fun
There are so many things to get into on our campus. From joining a club or organization to playing intramural sports, there are so many things to do to keep you busy. The student government associations likes to plan out activities to keep students busy and other clubs always host forums all year long.
Bang for the buck
Tuition is starting to sky rocket all around the U.S. At our school we have a low cost of tuition. Since there is a 2020 vision set in place, a lot of new and exciting things are being enhanced on campus. We now have a new student union and a new football stadium is being built at this very instance. I assure you, you will see your money being put to use.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
The one location on campus that stand out is the equinox. Its in the center of the academic mall and it's essential to ASU's history. Another location would be Council Hall. This academic hall is the birthplace of the bus boycott. In that very hall the flyers for the bus boycott were printed, which lead to the Civil Rights Movement.
Great for these types of students
It's great for all types of students. If you enjoy a campus with a rich tradition and a close knit family then it's great for you. If you enjoy small classrooms and having professors who actually know your name then it's great for you. If you enjoy working hard with like minded peers and enjoying activities planned for students then it's great for you.
Clubs and Activities
I would say there is a club for every type of person on campus. From the band to the honors program, everything is offered. If you want to learn how to network there are different organization to teach you just that. The activities planned for student are exciting and rewarding.
Greek Life
Greek Life is probably the epitome of every HBCU. On our campus the Greeks are very involved. Many students involved in these organization are also the top student leaders of the university. They enjoy succeeding on campus as well as in the world. Of coarse there is a friendly competition between them but that just makes everything int resting.
Campus Safety
We have real police officers who work 24 hours a day and 7 days a week to make sure ASU's campus is safe. They are always riding around campus whether it's in cars or on their automatic scooters. Plus we have the emergency polls posted all around campus just in case anything happens. Just push the buttons and help will be on its way.

Alabama State University is a well rounded school. The school offers a great amount of oppurtunities for the students that attend the school. The school is located around a lot of stores and businesses that offer plenty of jobs to the students attending school.
Tips for prospective students
My advice for any other students would to be to network. The people on the campus are really nice and help their peers in anything. Meet new people and people in your major and get to know them so you can have that mentor who can guide you through your major and classes.
Academic Rigor
The teachers are friendly and connected to the students. They care about the students and want what's best for the students. They pay attention to each student and make you feel important. They are always there to help a student reguardless of if you even take that teacher or class.
Dorm Life
The dorms are nice and are located right in the middle of the campus. Being located in the middle of the campus is a benefit because the class rooms are as well located in the middle of the classes. The freshmen dorms are located right in the center which is good for the students who are still trying to learn the campus. The freshmen dorms are right across from the academic center which is composed of the financial aid center, banker and academic counselors. The dorms are also located right next to the cafeteria so it is not a far walk for the students to go and eat.
Food and Dining
The food and dining is always neat and clean. The service is great and the staff are always smiling and making you feel welcomed. The food is freshly made in front of the students so you can see what is on the menu for the day. Often there is events in the cafeteria which gives the students a chance to interact and meet new students that they might not see everyday or in their classes.
What to do for fun
Many events are held on campus throughout the week. From student organizations to private organizations hosting events for the students. Most of the events are in the center of the campus which makes it easier for all the students to attend them. There is also a game room located on campus composed of many different games and tables for the students to use. Also in the game room there is many TV's for the students to watch any games and shows that they cannot do in their dorms if they do not have a television.

Alabama State University is great for Theatre majors. The Theatre Arts Department is directed by Dr. Tommie Tonea Stewart, actor from The Heat of the Night. Any student in this department will be taught the ins and outs of the acting life. I recommend Alabama State University's Theatre Department for anyone interested in this area of learning.

Alabama State University is a university moving in the right direction. This school has been through adversity with so many changes from the head personnel, but it seems its all coming together. This university is one to adore with the various students from across the nation as well as the world.
Tips for prospective students
For anyone researching and planning to attend Alabama State, I highly recommend looking for as many scholarships that are possibly available. With any school, the hardest part is paying your way through college. Alabama State has a variety of organizations and programs that will assist you financially as you matriculate through the university. So take time and really help yourself, there is not time to waste, so spend your money wisely.
Academic Rigor
Major in something that you love. Our academics speak for themselves. This university offers many degree programs from education to forensic science. The choice is yours and often can make a difference not only in your life, but also someone else.
Dorm Life
This area has improved over the years. If you're a fan of suitemates than you probably will get a kick out of the dorm life. If you'd rather be to yourself than to have a roommate, that option is also available to you for residential life. There's a variety of girl dorms, boy dorms, even co-ed dorms. Your options are endless. Residential life will even assist you, if you're not particularly looking to be directly on campus, with some options for off campus living. How cool is that?
Food and Dining
Over the years the dining hall has improved with their menu. Of course to treat the necessity of people who are not a fan of pork or beef, a vegetarian/vegan bar is provided on a daily. With that option being available, everyone else still has the decision to choose from various types of meat like fish, pork, poultry, and beef. With the newest installation to the union with the food court, which hosts proprietors like Subway and Herchel's, the dining experience at Alabama State is even greater. The vast choice of handmade sandwiches and pan pizzas really allows the students to keep coming back for more.
Campus Safety
Campus safety is not only a first year parent's concern, it should also be the concern of every student attending the university. ASU offers such great security for the students. Although the campus is not fenced in, numerous officers are constantly roaming around campus. ASU has upgraded their safety features with on-call emergency posts throughout the campus that will directly link you to the Department of Campus Security. There's nothing better than a sense of security and the campus police of Alabama State University tries their best to ensure that every student feels that exact same way.
