            As an alumnus of Alcorn State University, I am proud to recommend the institution to anyone wanting more for themselves. Alcorn is a family oriented university that takes all students no matter race, religion, or creed and throws them into a melting pot of success. The institution is isolated so there aren't many distractions. The campus is one of the most beautiful and is yet growing and the people there from professors to maintenance are rooting for you to succeed. Alcorn is more than just a place to receive a quality education. It's a place to establish life long friendships and learn life lessons all while having fun. Alcorn is family
