I loved my experience at Alcorn. It is a very small, historically Black agricultural university in the middle of nowhere but that's what makes it so unique. I think there are only about 4,000 students so you can imagine that the class size was small and that it was a family atmosphere where the professors really cared about you. The social/greek life was also popping but we definitely were scholars first! I highly recommend, 10/10. (FYI I also matriculated on a full scholarship and was fully employed in my field 3 months after graduation so I may be a bit biased).
There are not very many online or summer classes available but there are some hybrid classes and professors are willing to work with you if you can't attend every class.
Alcorn State University has a beautiful campus. The students, faculty, and staff are like one big family. Although it’s located in a more rural area, there are several events scheduled to keep you entertained. The campus is centrally located so a quick trip to a neighboring city is an option. The sports teams, band, dance team, Greek life, and over 100 organizations are impressive.
I have taken both in-person and online classes. Currently, we use Canvas which has been great! The in-person classes are small. The max size is around 30 which is rare. so it’s highly recommended if individualized instructions are needed.
Alcorn State University is a great place for young black intellectuals to grow academically and socially. The school offers numerous programs for students to further their academic knowledge in the major of their choice as well as provides a place for them to meet life long friends, joins clubs with their peers, and just overall get out of their comfort zone in order to be prepared for life after college.
Used Canvas learning system, information was given to direct students to success in courses. For the most part dedicated instructors who responded in timely fashion to emails.
Caring instructors dedicated to help you succeed. Resourceful staff members, willing to go out of their way to guide students. Very disorganized nursing program as a whole.
My online experience wasn’t bad at all. Alcorn state university instructors for the online section understands our circumstances with different classes so they try there best to give us piece by piece at a time and it’s really helpful to the students.
Alcorn state university is one of the best HBCU in the world in my eyes. The faculty and staff are very nice and very helpful if you need anything. It just feel like your at home and make you feel very much welcomed to be around.
Alcorn is a great HBCU. The teachers are a great asset to the school. The dorms are nice and affordable. The tuition is affordable and very reasonable. Alcorn also has a very homey feel to it.
Alcorn state is a family oriented university , it excels in academics and sports but I do feel as though it could use its finances to better the study body’s needs . For example more housing , food options and better facilities for the sports teams .
This past semester we had to start off with only online classes and the professors transitioned very well and took their time with each and every student to make sure the lessons were still taught through zoom and things of that nature .
My experience at Alcorn wasn't that bad. The campus is small, so you will get tired of seeing the same things all the time and eating the same food. The food was pretty decent though and the living was okay. There are a lot of friendly people on campus and the professors are good. It was new to me because I come from the city and moving to Mississippi in the country was a huge change.
I had a poor experience with Alcorn. I received my Masters in Nursing from there. First of all, they continually lost my paperwork and transcripts from my previous schools. Very poor communication. Poor coordination of the (MSN) program. I graduated, and they did not have the proper stole for my degree to match my classmates. Highly disappointing!
I took several classes online and the rubric and class syllabus were poorly put together. The instructors would sometimes take days to respond to your email.
I didn't feel I received enough preparation from Advisors or my teachers. I definitely don't remember a whole lot from the program I was involved in.
I really didn't have an online learning experience. I attended on campus and had in-person classes.
