Anybody who is pursuing an education at Alcorn State University will be in a positive learning environment:full of fun and a better understanding about careers all in one.
Will enjoy being here
Not only is Alcorn State University a great school-it is like your home away from home. The staff is friendly and willing to support you in anyway. The staff as well as the students welcome you with open arms as an Alcornite.
Tips for prospective students
I am a prospective student myself. I will be attending Alcorn State Univerisity in the fall. Tips I would provide to other prospective students would be as follows: be prepared for the college world and be prepared to learn. If you want to attend a school that will be of assistance to you in any way, Alcorn State University is the place to be/
Great for these types of students
Just because Alcorn State University is a historically black institute does not mean that it is just for black students. Students nationwide should want attend this school because of minority opportunities and for expansion of exposure to different cultures.

My time at Alcorn is spent studying and with the band. I have fun also and the people are very helpful and friendly.
Bang for the buck
For being an instate student, it is not that expensive to attend. The cost of attendance is not as high as it seems and refund checks are lovely. :)
Tips for prospective students
It gets lonely here sometime so disobeying the rules is likely. Do your best to follow rules here or anywhere.

Many of the teachers at Alcorn State University are extremely educated. They will let you know what they expect from you that very first day and are very helpful to their students. For example, if you don't understand something they will take the time to explain. They want to make sure their students are well-educated.
Am enjoying being here
Alcorn is a place to obtain an education as well as have fun. Although it is in the country events such as parties,probates,games, and concerts will definitely keep you entertained.
Bang for the buck
Alcorn has great new dormitories and an amenities building. The dorms may be expensive but they are amazing. The amenities building is equipped with a gym, lounge area, and a game room.
Tips for prospective students
I would like to tell all prospective students to go to Alcorn focused on their goals. This simply means to have fun but not too much fun where you won't be able to achieve your goal that was set before attending Alcorn.
Great for these types of students
Alcorn is a great school for people who want to lead and become successful in life. Alcorn prepares you for the real world.

Alcorn is a true academic resort, lying beneath the shade of the great oak trees, to quote our Alma Mater. Alcorn's campus is flourished with vast amounts of these huge pristine trees, making it a true southern paradise. On closer inspection one can observe the highest quality of education being taught by the brilliant and excellent instructors of our university.
Tips for prospective students
I would advise prospective students to be active and involved on campus. Do not just go to class, join organizations and develop a network with other students in your field or in your areas of weakness, so that you do not just develop academically but socially as well.
Academic Rigor
One of the best advantages about Alcorn is that your classes are relatively smaller than classes at larger schools. This means that you have a better opportunity to meet with your instructor and receive help with objectives you do not fully comprehend.
Dorm Life
The dormitory life at Alcorn is one of the best. The new dormitories include many amenities such as a full size refrigerator, a sink, microwave, and a flat screen. Room assistants also set up social activities with everyone on the floor on different occasions.
Food and Dining
The cafeteria here at Alcorn is buffet style and serves a wide variety of food. There are many different stations for pizza, hamburgers, pasta, etc. However, one thing that will never change is the southern tradition at Alcorn of serving chicken on Wednesday and fish on Friday.
What to do for fun
There is never a dull moment at Alcorn. The huge plot of grass and oak trees, nicknamed the yard, next to the cafeteria serves as a popular social hangout for Greek organizations, student groups, and barbecuers. There are concerts and parties with big celebrities, like Gucci Mane and Travis Porter, throughout the year that is sponsored by the school.
Bang for the buck
At Alcorn you receive a high quality education at a lower price, so there is no need to worry about an enormous student loan debt after college.
Greek Life
Alcorn is home of the Divine 9 African-American fraternities and sororities.
Campus Safety
Alcorn has ccampus police on 24 hour watch. A key card is needed to access dormitories after 11 pm. Campus entrance gates are monitoried 24/7.
