Alabama State University Reviews
Alabama State, in my opinion is a great HBCU! The student body and staff act as a family. We have great staff members that really show a great amount of support to students. There are minor things about the school such as how they choose to spend the money around campus and with financial aid. We need another dormitory because we have so many students that attend! When it is time to apply for housing it is complete war! Once housing runs out there is always a long waiting list to see who ends up not showing up to their room when school starts back. My experience freshman year with housing was that the online portal to housing had crashed and my friend called me and told me there was no more housing within the first 5 minutes it had open. They hosted an apartment fair! I couldn't afford that. I went all summer applying to other schools to transfer. Thankfully last minute I got housing two weeks into the school year! One thing about this school you have to be quick to get a room!
Alabama State University has opened my eyes and has been a wonderful help now that I have stepped into the real world. The academics have already proven to be challenging but extremely relevant and helpful as I continue through each semester. The school had the perfect hospitable invitation for me and that is why I have had a great experience being in attendance here thus far. Lastly, the staff has always been full of teachers that have had the will, the confidence, and the availability to help me with all the challenges I have experienced. Therefore, this all has made me highly optimistic of my prolonged enrollment at Alabama State University.
Being at Alabama State University for my first year of college was amazing! I met some of the most genuine and kind people and had some awesome professors throughout my year! I do plan on attending for the rest of college and high hopes of graduating in 2023 and also returning for grad school! It is such an amazing environment and very hands on! I appreciate everyone who helped me get through my first year of college, they truly made it a breeze!
