  • Celebrating 150 Years of Excellence

    We remain "Marion Strong."

    On July 17, 1867, the vision of nine freed slaves was realized with the incorporation of a school to educate black children. Now, 150 years later, that school has risen from its humble beginnings in Marion, Alabama, to a University with more than 50 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, cutting-edge research and a continued focus on academic excellence.

Why ASU?

  • KENYA SHAVERS: Sophomore, Communications/History

    "Why choose ASU? Because 'Opportunity is Here!' This is a saying students will hear throughout their experience on campus. But it's more than a motto; it's true. With dedicated faculty and staff and a welcoming student body, ASU is like a family. You will be pushed to accept challenges, defeat odds and never stop chasing your goals."

  • CAMERON KELLEY: Senior, Business/Marketing

    "Thanks to #myASU, I went from being a guy from Connecticut who knew absolutely no one, to an active student leader and SGA chairman. The experiences I have gained will help me stand out in today's competitive job market. It's not just a great education here, but also a great support system for students to follow their dreams no matter what obstacles they may face."

  • STACI JONES: B.A. Communications ('16)

    "I always knew I wanted to attend an HBCU, and I visited many of them. Visiting ASU was different. Instead of them telling me everything they had to offer, they showed me instead what I had to offer to ASU. The faith they showed me on my visit led me to making one of the best decisions I've ever made -- choosing ASU. Through the many opportunities ASU provided for me, I found my purpose."

  • Dr. MANOJ K. MISHRA: Associate Professor of Biology

    "Quality teaching and ground-breaking research experiences are two of the biggest offerings to ASU students. The Cancer Biology Research and Training program provides cutting-edge research, community outreach and works toward eliminating cancer health disparities. The passion here for education and research makes ASU a great center of learning."

  • SUNA NJIE: Senior, Biology

    "Alabama State University is a premier academic institution. At ASU, you will be pushed to be the very best you can be. You can be sure that when you leave here, you will be the best and ready for whatever the world has for you. They push you because they care. I truly believe that ASU has fully prepared me for my future."
