Alabama State University Reviews
My experience here at Alabama State University has been very positive, also the school is very helpful and always helping others when their needs are available. Also, Alabama State University has a lot of events that help the students with their social life and etc.. While being in college I experienced a lot of things with the student life and financial problems. But majority of the time my problems are always getting handled constantly. A lot of students always complaining about the school offices and also complaining about the staff (professors). Lastly, all of my school years I have stayed on campus and enjoyed the campus life! But this year I wouldn’t be able to because of the tuition.
At Alabama State University, all of the staff were helpful and welcoming & made my first college experience very comfortable. They gave me a very detailed campus tour and made sure that I was aware of the location of all buildings to prevent me getting lost. I met students who participated in a little bit of everything such as athletics, theater department, campus ambassadors, honors college and Greek life- and they all gave high regards of the school. I can't wait to attend this fall!
My experience at Alabama State University was one to remember. Since the school is located in the heart of Montgomery, AL. the rich history of the Civil Rights Movement impacted a lot of students. This institution is a historically black college who's motto is "Opportunity Is Here". Depending on the type of student you are, opportunities are accessible, but if you decide to wait until the last minute the opportunity will be gone. Recently, the university switched to a new program for Campus food, so the change should bring a different outlook for students. The teachers at Alabama State University genuinely care about their students as well as their job performance! If students contact their teachers on a regular basis even if it is for tutoring or talking about future careers, the teachers are open to have the conversation. Alabama State University is in the process of expanding their new Hornets Stadium and enhancing the student life, it's a great time to be a Hornet!
