The classroom and professors are really doing an outstanding job, however they're so strict treating college students like high school kids. Yes I understand it's funded under an AME Church but loosen up alittle bit, teenagers have to grow up and learn one day.
Review Allen University
Well, the new residence hall last time I checked had cracks in the foundation on the higher floors and it scared me when I leaved there. I rooms are okay but you have a few rooms in different buildings that are not suppose to have two people in them and then there in one building that got shut down, but it didn't stop them, but anyway that's life. Amenities are most times you get to choose your roommate and social atmosphere depends on who you are. They believe in everyone being closer to similar or doing the same thing if not you will catch the devil because you are different, but if you blend in you are good. Cost is great. It's affordable. Residence halls are convenient because they are only a few steps away from the buildings the classes are in. housing process in fine. Just fill out an application and show up on time and get in before the rush it will be simple for you, but over all the housing is okay to be here.
My experience at allen was phenomenal, there are staff members that's are like family and Allen gives you take at home feeling
