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.
My experience at Alabama state so far has been great! I love my hbcu. Of course there are some things that could be better for instance the organization when it comes to money and fees the school could definitely be better at Ive had some hard experiences from being bombarded with thousands of dollars having to be paid within a week of my classes and dorm would be dropped while not knowing in advanced and being told that I’ve paid everything it can sometimes be frustrating and very hard to watch my mom (a single mother) go through it by herself . Other than that I love my Hbcu
Alabama State is an amazing HBCU! They care a ton about our culture and the people who attend. The dorm rooms should be fixed up, but for the most part, they're decent living spaces. I love the interactions between the whole Alabama State community!
