Norfolk State University Reviews
The atmosphere is fun and inviting--like you're apart of a family of students and faculty. The professors are excellent (most), and they take the time to work with you as much a possible. The location is centralized and just minutes from downtown Norfolk and Virginia Beach, so it's always something to do. The administration could be better. Most are low on patience and they have complexes. All-in-all, great school!
Norfolk State University, the "Home of the Spartans!". I have had a pretty good experience here especially since the professors and staff are nothing short of amazing. The food and dorms could be in a little better condition but this University does not get enough credit. The recent changes that have been made educationally have pointed this school in the right direction. I feel safe on campus as well as optimistic about learning even though I am double majoring in a pretty solid majors, Electronics and Electrical Engineering as well as Mathematics. I highly recommend this historical HBCU college.
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.
