    Understand this institution is for prospect students who are undecided. This degree program is a big loop of disappointments because of the higher expectations most students have. There are better HBCUs

    This school is great if you are looking for a small campus that has great school spirit. You have the opportunity to be as great or as mediocre as you want. The dorm life could be better as well as the professors. But overall the college to me is pretty good. 3.5/5 and the the party scene is nice but you’re there for education first.

    Do your research before jumping into a decision. Norfolk State is an amazing school with amazing programs but the amenities are not ideal.

    Don't stay in towers. It's the worst dorm hall. Save your dining dollars as long as you can because sometimes the caf will be horrible.

    This school was the worst - I graduated from NSU with a comm degree and couldn't wait to get outta there. Teachers who cant use a computer, typos in every email and syllabus, they don't call you back, full voice mails, attitudinal unhappy employees, late to grade, later post stuff. NSU is for people who have low expectations, and less ambition - those old deans and dept heads with PHDs from 1975 need to go so that some REAL educators can be hired to teach these poor kids.
