We also have one of the largest marching bands in the United States of America and have won numerous athletic championships in men’s and women’s sports. Our alumni have distinguished themselves in many professional arenas including medicine, law, government, education, business and entrepreneurship, research, entertainment, and professional athletics.\r\n\r\nFor more than 125 years, Alcorn State has educated leaders in the full range of professions agriculture, the arts, business, human services, education, law, politics, medicine, and nursing.
