WHAT I LIKED

The environment of Norfolk state is one of the things I like the best. I enjoy the staff and the students because it is family-oriented. When you ask for help, there is someone always willing to help you achieve your goals. Failure is not an option here.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I did not like the food options on campus, they could have been healthier. I also did not like the dorms. We have to pay thousands of dollars for a decent living area. I currently live in the apartments on campus and it’s not worth almost $6000.

WHAT I LIKED

It's a great school and it definitely got its pros and its cons. the dining hall food is not that good, Housing sometimes does not care about your health, the teachers help you become a successful student and everybody wants to see everybody succeed and Graduate.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Older guys coming at you.

Advisors could be better.
