Allen University is a great school to come to! Of course all schools has their ups and downs, but here at Allen we're all family! If anything I really consider Allen to be my home away from home. I have met wonderful professors and students who do nothing but support you in everything you do!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a good experience overall the people are pretty cool, the academics are good and there are also a good variety of stuff to do off campus as well. The food was ok not the best but it will do. The professors make sure they can do all that they can to help out every student. The sports are great, overall the school is good.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are looking for the HBCU experience Allen University is definitely the college. The professors and staff are willing to work with you and guide you in the path of greatness. The classes and courses are overall easy and there is on campus tutoring and assistance for those who may need it. There's always something going on whether it's sorority/fraternity events or sporting events.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Allen University is the best University is the best University in the world. It is student and family oriented, they want all of their student to succeed. The professors as well as faculty and staff are always available to answer question, give direction and what ever you need, it isn't like being at home , but it is a close second. The food is average but you could get us to it. The choir is the campus' pride and joy; it is a University born out of christian conviction and struggle which gives it an extra plus. Everyone knows that there is a certain amount of frolic going on in every campus, but it isn't what it could be. Allen University is the place to be for academic excellence. Their history is rich and they continue in that history but has taken it up higher each year.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The college life is exactly what you see on television. There are parties, games, and more. Once you go to college, stay to yourself. Do not get involved with a lot of people because that is how you get caught up in drama. Focus only on your education. If your education is going to be hindered, do not attend whatever you had planned for the day or night. Your professors are there to help you so use that to your advantage. If you are having any trouble, they will help you. Show plenty of school spirit because this could help you sooner or later. Do not try to fit in. Stick to your morals that you learned before you left to go off to school. Keep in contact with your teachers and staff from high school. You will eventually still need them for recommendations.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school would be that the campus is opened to the public. The main buildings are in one area, including our dorms. However, the cafe and other buildings are mixed up within the neighborhood or community. This makes it easy for outsiders to intrude our campus because the campus is not together and gated.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is that we do not have co-ed visitation. It has been explained that the reason for this is that the university is a Christian school. However, I know of other private Christian schools that have co-ed visitation. There could at least be a student area that we could be at to hang out but there is not one provided at the current moment.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself that college may seem easy, but its not. Also to stay focused and dont mess around and study as much as you can. You can still have fun and a life but be wise with your time. Be careful of who you hang out with for that can definately affect your studious tasks and dorm life.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The unique thing about Allen University is that many scholarships are available to students of all backgrounds. That makes it easy for students like me who do not qualify for Life Scholarship or Pell Grant.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Do not go to Allen University. Choose a university that does offer a Nationallly Accredited Nursing Program. Start looking at ways to pay for a different school. Do not choose to take the easy route.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The dorms and social life at Allen University is the worst part. We are not treated as adults, but as students in the prison system. Many students transfer for this purpose alone. We work so hard and yet we get no type of freedom.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The unique then about Allen Univeristy is the science department, english department and the work study program. We have great professer in both fields, by the way the professor teach and by the way they help out on any thing a student need. The work study program made me a better person. My supervisior tought me how to organize an officer and tought me how to file paperwork in order. It also help me out to stay organize in my school work. I glad to be apart of my school science and english department as well the work study program.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My goal now on is to study for my VCAT test which is an exam I would need to take in order to go to medical school for veterinary medicine. Maintain a GPA of a 3.0 and pass the physical test for a three years scholarship for ROTC. The quote that I will always go by is “ you never know who is watching you.” I go by that quote because it true that why I always talk in manner way that can get me far through life. When I graduate from medical school I want to accomplish my career, make a wonderful family of mines, and want people to remember me as a wonderful person when I leave this earth. That’s why I planned my career before I made it to Allen. I wanted to be somebody that people wouldn’t mind me to be. I want my dream to start out hard an end out smoothly. Have a great smile on mother face to show if she need anything ,I wouldn’t mind helping her like she didn’t mind helping me a lone my way through school. I will always keep that in mind thought school.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about Allen University is it does not have an Army ROTC program. In order for me to have ROTC I will need to do a transit form from another school. Which cause a lot of paper to fill out for each semester to be in the program. for instinct I go to the school that have the program financial and then go to their business registeration. I do not mind doing it because this is what i want to pursue in but at times its not organize for me to understand, especially the paidments for the class.
