Alcorn State University welcomed over 1900 high school and community college students, along with parents and chaperones, to campus on Saturday, November 14 for its fall High School and Community College Day. The program brings students to the Lorman campus to learn more about educational opportunities available and for a taste of university life at Alcorn. This year, Alcorn hosted students from Mississippi, Tennessee and Louisiana.

During High School and Community College Day, students interacted with representatives from the University’s various departments and programs. Activities featured entertainment from the Sounds-of-Dynamite’s drum line, a pep rally led by ASU cheerleaders, the Alcorn State University Gospel Choir, as well as performances from Greek organizations and campus tours.

Johnny McDonald, director of admissions and recruiting, was very pleased with the turn out and engagement of the entire campus with this event. “This was a great opportunity and we look forward to building on what Alcorn did this year and making High School and Community College Day more successful. Each year, Alcorn is hopeful that the event will enhance the institution’s profile and increase new student enrollment.”

The all-day event concluded with participants attending the Alcorn State University vs. Prairie View A&M football game.
