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!

Alabama State University is a great school for the overall HBCU experience, this school is best known academically for education, history, and criminal justice majors. I see a lot of potential and most professors in that field, but as far as my field I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in computer science, I just wish the school had better professors who wouldn't just write notes and expect you to learn that way. I wish we could have done more with applications and new era computer skills. Also just needs a more exciting view on computers science. Overall ASU is a great spirited school with the best band in the land! I loved president Boyd! She was like no other president I seen, actually seeing a university president care for the students like she did was amazing.
The few years being at Alabama State University have been truly a life changing experience for me. From being out on my own I find it easier here at ASU as in if you need help with anything many professors are willing to help. In addition there are numerous opportunities here at ASU for anyone of every race, religion, and background. Remember at Alabama State University, 'Opportunity is Here'!
