About This Campus

Alabama State University, a Historically Black College/University, was America's first state-supported academic institution founded for the education of Blacks. It was established in 1866 as Lincoln Normal in Marion, Alabama and was moved to Montgomery in 1887. After several name changes the school received its present name in 1969. The 105-acre urban campus has over 5500 students and offers 40 different programs of study. The College of Business Administration has developed special programs geared to assist small business entrepreneurs which give students opportunity for actual experience in the market place.
