Hi Prospective College Student,
By choosing Allen University, you're not simply choosing a 4-year university; you're choosing to attend an institution that will never see you as just a number. A place where you will build personal connections with faculty, staff, peers, and the community, gain mastery-level skills, discover your strengths and passions, and be fully equipped to succeed in the career of your choice.
At Allen University, we value our students as individuals and take pride in ensuring they feel fully supported and set up for success. Students have described faculty and staff as being like family and always there to help if and when they need anything. We believe the key facet of the journey for students is an education that teaches the mind to think, the hands to work, and the heart to love. This is what sets our University apart from others.
Here's how Sophomore Kierra Wellington has been impacted by the Allen motto in her daily life:
"'We teach the mind to think'- Allen has taught me to always think before I speak and to think before I react. That my character and representation matters. Professors here challenge us to think outside of what we've been conditioned to think and to stretch our minds. 'The hands to work'- Allen teaches us to work. We're taught discipline and responsibility, and though they are fully supportive, they [faculty/staff] don't hold our hands because the world won't when we leave here. 'The heart to love'- We are able to show love to others because love is consistently show to us by everyone on this campus. Allen is more than just a college or HBCU, it's a family and being surrounded by so many diverse individuals that believe in us [African Americans] helps us to not allow society to dictate our trajectory in life. Allen University doesn't just speak love and compassion, they embody it." - Kierra Wellington
