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.
Review Alabama State University
This University will teach it's students a lot about resilience, due to the fact that there is always something wrong, that students have to overcome and make the best of! Students will graduate in 4 years with the strength to overcome any obstacles thrown their way. In addition, The instructors are mostly lenient, so the course load is not very heavy.
I would not choose another HBCU even if I had the chance to. Alabama State University has taught me so much about myself, as well as the Alabama itself. There are so many opportunities at my HBCU that you would have no choice but to be engaged with the student body. You meet people from all over the world and the education is just wonderful! Not only do the professors teach, but their passionate about it and you learn about life situations as well. I will never forget my experience at Alabama State University, and I will forever be grateful for the friends, professors, and knowledge that I have gained.
