Norfolk State University Reviews
The college experience is great, however, the food, housing, and parking is not the best. Nonetheless, this HBCU makes everyone feel welcomed and is one big family. The activities that are provided for the students and alumni are amazing, and the faculty are well educated and world renowned. Once graduated, you will be prepared to make a difference in the world. COLLEGE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT!
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!
I am a local student of NSU,meaning I live in the area. Honestly, in comparison to my experience at ODU, NSU has an environment where you feel like a part of a family once you walk In. I enjoy how dedicated and passionate the professors are about my success. At NSU, Your dreams will come true if you put forth the effort. It is a relatively small campus, which makes social interaction, class size, and personal relationships with professors more realistic. I would definitely change the area in which this University is located. A lot of the local people tend to walk on campus without authorization, which could be a safety hazard. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing about my HBCU. BEHOLD !
