Review Norfolk State University
As a freshman at Norfolk State University I did not want to attend the university. Once I moved into my dorm and experienced my first week of college classes, my mind changed at the blink of an eye! Now after the first five weeks grading period I know what I have to improve on. I've also learned that Norfolk State isn't the best when it comes to supporting their student athletes. By this I mean, most students aren't at the games because they aren't aware that there is a game that day. Although the university could be better at school spirit, Norfolk State is not lacking in improving their campus. I definitely think that since NSU is making improvement to their campus, it is drawing in more students.
I like the fact that my school is an Historically Black College University, meaning it's meant for African Americans. At first I wanted to go to a mixed school, but then I thought about how I need to learn more about my people, more about my roots. I love that it's a medium sized college so I am more likely to get one on one time with my professors. The curriculum is very reasonable. There's nothing that I really dislike. Sometimes communication with financial aid or housing can be bad but other than that I like it!
I originally was drowned into the talk that my school was not of the best. People talked bad about it a lot, saying you could be dumb as nails to get in along with other cliches! However, I have come to find that my university is a great place to gain a higher education. In my opinion, is all in what you make it. There is not a lot of violence, the professors are very knowledgeable, and I'm getting the whole college experience while being closer to home, so I've enjoyed it this far. Yes, there are small issues that I'd like to see change, but what university , or any organization for that matter, is perfect?
